My snippets card this week is based on a very simple but I think clever idea - shown here on You Tube by Helen Allen. It's the second of the two ideas for using up little snippets of ribbon Helen shows in the video - great for using up those little pieces that I find are always left over after wrapping ribbon round a card/making a bow:
- A6 white card stock
- a snippet of green card from the snippets folder, it's SU's 'Lucky Limeade' with the corners punched using a Woodware notched corner punch
- an assortment of little ribbon snippets from the little box I throw them into - just a couple of inches in length is enough to play with. I picked out same width ones but that's not necessary of course, plus my card has a real mix of colours on, different shades of pink or any other colour would look good though
- sentiment is by Inca 'Dot Birthday', stamped with Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink, corners punched with the notched corner punch and layered onto another snippet of card, black this time
Helen just added the card strip of ribbons to her lovely card, I covered mine with a scrap of black and white gingham ribbon. One thing to emphasise if you do try this is to use ultra strong DST throughout - ask me how I know :)
Here are my picks for this week, and it just gets harder and harder.
Sigh, I could go on forever picking cards to show - so many beautiful ones, you can hop over and check them out here.
Onto the winner of the two Simply Gorjuss Girls stamps, plus the stamen punch - and it's:
That's so funny - the first few names drawn by the random number thingy had declined (probably on account of being scared to colour the fawn - grin), and then out came Glennis who had squeezed into the Playground right at the end of playtime! I've been and peeked through some of the posts on your blog and there's some lovely colouring there so I hope you like this prize Glennis! Can you please let me have your snail mail address - my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
It's the second week for the Raindrops stamp, quite a few of you have already qualified for the draw I see. If you haven't, then you only need to make a total of three entries over the two week period to be in with a chance.
And this week's prize is....................a bag stuffed with ribbon snippets :) Come baaaaack, I was kidding!
|These stamps are 3" in height|
|Each wing is 4" high x 3" wide|
The Playground will run as usual this week with the gates closing at 11am UK time on Saturday 10th August. Maximum of three entries and please say 'No thank you' in a comment if you wish to still play but not be a winner of the stamp sets shown above. Mr Linky is below - do please let me know if you have any problems linking, I can sort it out for you quite quickly and am always happy to do so.
Enjoy your week and hope to see you in the Playground. Remember that next Sunday the winner of Ryn's Raindrops stamp will be revealed - good luck,
Just realised that this is my 1000th blog post since starting this blog in March 2010. In truth over time a few posts have been deleted so it's really more than 1,000, the deleted ones were some which were being targetted by spammers until I hit on the idea of not allowing anonymous comments - that fettled the little perishers, snigger.
