Floral Framed Hexagon Card

Hi crafters!  The pixie powders have come out again!  I just can't leave them alone, the results are just so stunning!  If you have never used them, watch and see how easy they are.  If you have, you will definitely know what I mean! LOL

The finished dimensions are 8 1/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Today's sample is just stunningly beautiful in every way it's sooo pretty and I love it. Now then Sue, these Pixie Powders, you probably know by now how addicted we are to your dies and your way of designing samples, so then you throw these explosive beauties into the mix. I know I'm not the only one that got down and despondent when we couldn't get them 'right' we ended up with a wet puddle of messy water but when the penny dropped oh my word another addiction kicked in and so yes we get you good n proper lol the fb group I'm in are real Pixie lovers and the backgrounds, the flowers plus your dies cut from Pixied card are just amazing, so if anyone hasn't had a play you really must but don't get fed up if at first you don't succeed like I did lol if I can get there anyone can ! So from one Pixie addict to another I send my love and hugs and thank you for the most beautiful start to my way xxx

Stunning card Sue. Adore the pixies.

Sandy G said...

Gorgeous card Sue. The colours are very pretty. Thanks for sharing.
Have a great day everyone.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Absolutely stunning! I love the hexagons but I think what really makes this is the Pixie Powder background and flowers that really do pop. I love the powders although I must admit I did struggle for a while to get anything that I could work with - just ended up with a 'muddy' mess. However, I did persevere and now manage to use them successfully. They are definitely addictive!
Hope everyone is ok today and if going out take care - lot of snow up here, icy and windy further south. We were going swimming this morning but abandoned that idea when we looked out the window!
Sending love and hugs to you all, especially to our missing friends, Alison xxxx

Yvonne H said...

Good morning Sue,
A stunning card today with your beautiful pixie powders just making your card pop. Yvonne xx

DeCor said...

Love the vibrant background you've made with the pixie powders. It is a wonderfully cheery card to brighten this chilly day. Thank you lots. Have a good day and keep warm.

Betty McAlister said...

Morning Sue and all. A stunning card to brighten this very windy morning, with a gorgeous Pixie Powder background.
The pretty clusters around the hexagons and that fabulous Victoria die come together to bring us a stunner today, xx

Chris Curry said...

I love this card and how vibrant it is with the pixie powders, love using them too. Thank you Sue, have a good day. Xx

Anne said...

As I love the hexagonal dies and pixie powders this card is right up my street, Sue. What I love about the pixie powders is if a piece goes "wrong" all I do is cut out a load of flowers for future projects and they look great.

Beautiful card, those pixies really make the centre & those flowers pop. Your video couldn’t have come at a better time as I had already decided I was hibernating & today was going to be ‘pixie’ day, so thank you Sue!

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Friends,

I'm dropping off again. Quickly, though, this card is breathtakingly beautiful. Every single detail. I'm in the group that hasn't yet mastered the Pixies, but not for lack of trying. My theory is that mine don't yet have enough breathing room in the container.

Isn't Victoria a beauty!

And those Nasturtiums, they're just not fair. We have no defenses against them.

Elaine sends word that she is hanging in for the benefit of Andrew and Helen and her grandson. Andrew is getting treatment that won't show benefits for a month and meanwhile he's enduring through the pain. She loves that many of you have managed to reach out to her. I don't know her email address but we're in touch by Facebook. If you sent me your email address, I could relay it.

When she speaks of him, he comes across as warm and caring toward her, not the least bit feeble. An amazing bond.

On my second to last day there's a chance of an overnight freeze. Going to the stamp and scrap store to spend my loyalty rewards from the last trip.

Thank you for these lovely pieces and for showing us how to make them.

Watch your step in the snow and ice and if y ou're in a warm place, remember your sunscree!


Owlish said...

I don’t own any pixie powders but I’m loving this very effective card what fantastic colours
I think I’m off to watch the video

stitchingranny said...

I get completely obsessed with Pixie Powders, I have a draw full of ready made sheets lol.
This mornings card is stunning.

Hugs Helen xx

Anonymous said...

Good, Morning, Sue
Wow, Hexagons, Pixie Powders and flowers this morning and they all come together in your gorgeous card.
Similar to some of your other followers, I too, couldn't get to grip with the PP at first. However, I set some time to experiment again and made six A4 sheets at once which I was very pleased with! I prefer to use A4 because I mainly make 6 x 6 cards and I can use the excess from the first card to have ready cut flowers, etc for a second.
Looking forward to watching the video later.
Have a good day!

Hi Sue, a very striking and vibrant card. I love the Nasturtium Cluster with the added pixied flowers on top, they are so pretty. Your video is very informative as usual and although I have not yet succumbed to pixies I do like seeing how they work.

Donita - thanks for the news on Elaine and I am happy to hear that Andrew is getting treatment.
As Jess said the expected storm passed us by last night so I should be able to get out later on but I hope everyone is still taking care on the roads if they do have to go out.

Hi Sue. I have the hexagon dies and now that I have finally got the hang of the pixie powders, (I wasn't putting enough on previously) there is no reason that I shouldn't be able to create similar cards to yours.

Diane Green said...

Hi Sue
What a beautiful card today, there's something rather appealing about a hexican shape isn't there. Now why do I never think to make flowers out of pixie backgrounds, I could fill a florist shop from my not quite there yet stash! Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx
Pam missing you, hope you are keeping warm. Xxx
Donita thank you for the update you are a star, when I find a spare 5 minutes I must get in touch with you xxxx

Tressa said...

Beautiful card. I always love anything that has Pixie powders on them. Going upstairs shortly to get a couple of sheets done for birthday cards that need to go out next week.


Pawprintx4 said...

Love, love, love this card. Victoria is smashing as always and I am also a Pixie addict. I had the other two powder pigments before the Pixies came into my awareness and there is no comparison. I have an order of missing Pixies arriving tomorrow so I hope the mailman can make it on my icy road. We have quite a bit of snow and ice and the hubby tells me that our drive, road and then major road to my house are the worst. The freezing weather was bad enough and now I really do feel like I have hibernated. I am so glad I have my card making or I would go bonkers!
Donita, thanking you for the update on Elaine's Andrew.
Still missing Pam.
Stay warm everyone (Donita, you are probably fine. Have fun shopping),

Take care everyone.

Marie from Longridge said...

Good afternoon Sue and all,
I am even later than usual today as my PC did an update on windows that took over TWO HOURS.

Your card of the day was well worth the wait Sue, it is stunning.

I couldn't believe my luck when I saw your subject as on my trip out on Wednesday I actually bought my very first 3 Pixie Powders and I was hoping there would be a lesson on U-Tube and along came SUE with a superb lesson right into my in-box. I also learned a lot from many of the comments as a result of which I will practice on throw away card until I feel comfortable with my efforts. If I make mud puddles I'll know I'm not the only one.
I'd love to start right now but unfortunately every available surface in my craft room is covered in dies which I'm sorting out to fulfil one of my New Year resolutions.
Thank you all.
Marie P.

Dawn Holben said...

Sue this card is totally goegeous, i love those dies and you are so right about the pixie powders. I adore the results from them and so love using them.
I find once i get them out to make a background i just can't stop, they are just
so addictive lol

Viki Banaszak said...

This is amazingly beautiful! The tiny flowers are so pretty.
