It's Sunday :-) / :-(

Happy as it's time to play at the Pixies Snippets Playground Challenge but sad as it's back to work tomorrow. Anyway I'm being a bit sneaky today as I wanted to join the Colour Q challenge this week and while it's an 'Anything Goes' week at Simon Says Stamp I'm heading over there too.

I decided to use an idea I saw on Stephanie's site at Clearly Besotted using my new Postage Stamp die. I cut the four stamps out in the required colours - and heck I've thrown pieces bigger than this in the bin previously - sinful! I then masked each one while I stamped a section of the flower image (also from Clearly Besotted) in coordinating ink on each postage stamp. Three of the postage stamps are raised on foam with one sitting straight on the card.

I'm off for some more crafting as I'm loving experimenting with my new goodies so catch up with you all later.

  2. This is gorgeous Sarah what a brill idea huggles Sue xx

  3. Lovely card Sarah - really CAS and very striking. Snippets can be as small as you like - and even just one will do if that's all you use. No wonder the Playground is mayhem, I'm too soft to have any strict rules!

    Hugs, Di xx
