- a snippet of SU 'So Saffron' card stock
- snippet of blue card stock
- snippets of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet card (ha, the violet has washed out to almost white in the photo, despite me trying it out in different lighting) - all die cut using MFT's 'Chevron Stripes' die. A first outing for it although I bought it ages ago - thought I'd better use it before chevrons go out of 'vogue' - not that I can see that happening just yet!
- sentiment was printed using the printer here and then die cut with one of MFT's 'Cloud Trio' dies. I'm sure you'll all know this trick but just in case - what I did was to cut a cloud template using some spare card and the die. The cloud template I wanted to use was placed over the sentiment where I wanted it to be and then the die itself was slotted in place, cutting side down of course, over the top to cut. I found it easier to gently slip the template away before running just the sentiment and metal die through the Cuttlebug. I know, you probably already know this trick anyhow!
I really thought the sentiment so appropriate after all the lovely comments you left this week - thank you all so much!
So, this week in the Playground - lots of lovely makes as always, and I've just picked a few to show you:
I'm stopping there, although there are more terrific droplets cards and all sorts of great snippets ideas if you peek at last week's entries!
And last week's prize of eight sheets of Penny Black Stickeroos was won by:
This coming week's prize girls - you might not be at all surprised to learn that it's sets of the dies I used today - 'Chevron Stripes' and 'Cloud Trio' by MFT:
PLUS, I posted yesterday here about an extra prize - three of them in fact. To read more just go to the link, but they really are the closest thing I think you'll find to Couture Creations' 'Tied Together' embossing folder. Made by Crafts-Too and called 'Lattice':
Talking of Ryn, guess what she only went and did? I do have a different water stamp of hers to give away soon - and the little sweetie noticed that I'd only ordered another one for myself of yet a different water stamp so she added an extra one of those in as a prize from her. How sweet is that then?! Watch this space - there will be two Ryn stamps coming up over the coming weeks!
The Playground will run as usual this week with the gates closing at noon UK time on Saturday 6th July. 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 this week's prize, the two sets of MFT dies. And of course you can start building up your total of three entries over the next two weeks for the 'Lattice' embossing folder. Mr Linky is below - have fun!
PS I've added a Bloglovin' button to the sidebar - I use my dashboard to follow folk so at least that ought to be fine still but just in case any of you use Google Reader the button is there! Belt, braces and double knicker elastic, that's me!
