- 6" x 6" white square card blank
- smaller snippet of silver holographic card for a border
- a slightly smaller square of white card which was then die cut using a Memory Box die called 'Dazzling Snowflake'. Before doing the die cutting I adhered a piece of 'Stick-It adhesive sheet for intricate die cuts' on the reverse side of the card. After die cutting and encouraging the little die cut pieces out (in truth they had mostly parted company with the die anyhow), it was just a matter of peeling off the backing behind the die cut before sticking it onto a smaller piece of card which had been covered with a snippet of sparkly holographic silver film
- I then very
Debated about adding a centre gem but thought the die works beautifully just as it is :)
If you're wondering what this 'Stick-It' adhesive is, I posted on the blog about it earlier in the week HERE.
Onto this week's picks, three again girls, to keep my Saturday morning time at the laptop down, But, as always, you all brought some amazing work - you can check last week's links/thumbnails if you haven't already done so of course:
xI picked this card, made by Eve, for the ingenuity - using hexagons to make such a realistic football! Very clever stuff.
Although I'm only showing and linking to three picks, some others which I really think you should check out are Sam (aka Hettie) who made a beautiful album, Sue J made a stunning Autumn scarecrow card, and Carol L gave a brilliant hint on making leaves which look very realistic using a crimper!
And we also have one new Playmate:
Onto the the winner of the House Mouse stamps sets, kindly donated by Ann.
This really made me laugh, am sure you remember me saying that I keep a note of peeps who said yes please and just repeat running Mr Random until he selects a person who has said they wanted this prize. It took me five goes to get a name to come up who wanted the House Mouse stamps - and it's our newest playmate:
The prize for this coming week might just interest a few of you:
It's a Memory Box 'Dazzling Snowflake' die of your very own, just like I used for my snippets card - what's different about this die of course is that it's the negative of the die cut that you use. Plus, one pack of five 'Stick-It' sheets (large size, which are about the old foolscap size - any typists remember foolscap?). I find these sheets invaluable for intricate dies - especially ones like the 'Dazzling Snowflake' which does have a slight tendency to sort of 'dome' upwards very slightly when it's been die cut. This stuff cured that perfectly - I can't imagine trying to do it properly with glue..
The Snippets Challenge will run for one week and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday 18th October and will open again at midnight UK time on the same day.
Maximum of three entries and please say 'Yes please' (or similar) in a comment if you wish to play and be a possible winner of the prize. Feel free to say if you're only interested in either the die or the 'Stick-It' sheets.
Mr Linky is below - please let me know if you have any problems linking, it's easy for me to sort out so don't struggle on alone :)
Have a great week! Tomorrow will see the tilers arrive so things are moving along at a good pace here.Not without some stressful moments of course - sigh.
