Snippets Playground - Week 213

Hello and thanks for calling

I really enjoyed making this card and while I had my heat gun  out decided to make a few similar cards in different colours.

I cut the embossed background to size then into strips and mounted onto the pink card.

I made quite a lot of the little flowers from offcut of parchment paper so that I could make a batch of cards.

They were heat embossed onto vellum and fussy cut and I used a Sakura pen to colour the stamens.

The sentiments are from a set by Paula Pascal that I use a great deal and the banner is a Sue Wilson die.

I 'm popping this card over to join in at Pixie's Snippets Playground Week 213

Great snippets make Barb. Need to get my skates on for this week - but that rocket fuel that Sarn said was Hooch has given me a headache!!

I am a sucker for vellum embossed flowers and I love yours, Barb!! What a great idea to make up a bunch of them. I've got drawers and drawers of store-bought flowers that don't "speak" to me so they just hide away there unloved, but these vellum beauties sure make me smile! Great use of snippets, too!! Hugs, Darnell

The embossed flowers are really pretty and that's an idea I've never thought of, so thanks for the inspiration!

PJ said...

Fabulous. This card is beautiful. I like your technique of cutting the embossed layer, and then mounting them on a different color. Beautiful. You might see that idea soon in one of my cards.. I hope you don't mind ☺

A wonderful card for this specific occasion (or any other that you needed by changing up the sentiment). It has a very light hearted & cheery feel with the panels of embossing behind those delicate gold outline posies. A most feminine design, and so very pretty. I really like this layout and it's perfect with the flowers. TFS & Hugs

This is so retty. I love the idea of batch baking the flowers so they are to hand when you need them!

Di said...

Absolutely beautiful Barb - I love those flowers and the embossed strips look stunning. I wonder why it's only recently I've been noticing this idea - it's so clever and really does make such a difference.

Hope that Friday went off OK and that perhaps this week will be less stressful.

Hugs
