Pixied Leaves Card



Hi bloggers!  Today's video uses the Pixie powdered leaves that were used in a previous video as a resist for another background.  Waste not, want not I always say!









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

Hello Sue, a very striking card because of the leaf colours against the white, and a great way to use the die cuts left from another card. Off to watch the video. Have a great day everyone. Bx

DeCor said...

Great video again. Love your leaves and this card. Thank you again for sharing your clever techniques.

Morning Sue. I'm probably getting repetitive now but I do love the colours of Autumn - although I know we could fill this Bushel basket with many of the floral dies you've bought to us in spring/summer colour scheme but there's something about the basket that makes it cry out for leaves, fruit or vegetables. I'm fortunate to own both the basket and the garden tools but I'm missing the leaves 😢 there are now soo many various backgrounds now to chose from so these 'older' backgrounds get lots in the past so its really lovely to see the resist technique again, one I've not done in a couple of years. This sample is just gorgeous and I'm looking forward to watching the tutorial at some point this morning. Hope your prep work for the weekend is going well it would be great if I could go one year but it's just too far to travel for me - never mind that's life.
So although you'll be very busy, it's all for something you love and to give those that admire you a great weekend watching you do what you love most, have an enjoyable day xxx

Hi Sue - an ideal card for anyone who loves gardening and your video was very explicit. The leaf dies are so useful but this card could be adapted with different dies for other occasions too. Sending best wishes

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Those Pixied leaves are wonderful, so much sparkle and shine even without the glittered background....I must say that I really love the "no waste" dies from your collections, there are some wonderful designs and the best bit is of course that there is no waste!...

BenteS said...

Lovely card, and the leaves are great :))
Thanks for the video!

Tressa said...

Lovely card. As you said, 'waste not, want not'.... this shows beautifully what one can do with waste from a previous card.

Like others I am waiting for it to warm up and for green leaves to appear. I moved into my house thirty years again and there were a mass of daffodils out in full bloom. Over the past few years they have bloomed earlier and earlier. This year? Still in bud. Roll on spring.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Great idea for using up those leftovers. This card really brings to life those autumn days of raking up all those leaves in the garden. Still I don't have to do that job anymore since I have moved to a flat.

Good morning Sue beautiful card I was waiting to see what you would do with those leaves from a previous card you've put them to good use & created a masterpiece!
At least we have done sunshine today after the torrential rain yesterday We ended up with a big pond at the bottom of our garden but we made the most of it & had leaf & twig boat races with the grandchildren great fun!
Sending good wishes to all

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue. Lovely card Sue. And I remember those leaves that were left over. It's lovely to watch what you did with them instead of just telling us. I have watched the video and what a brilliant job you have done with them. I would class this as a man card with a different sentiment. I will file it away with my "other man things" Always good to fall back on. We have a brighter morning today..... just hope we don't have anymore rain or we might all be swimming in Lynnes pool at the bottom of her garden ha ha lol. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Wow, great card, as you say 'waste not, want not'....those leaves look amazing....thanks Sue..luv Ursula xx

ursula said...

Sue, something I have been meaning to ask for ages, what spray glue do you use please ????? luv Ursula xx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I think that you have used the leftover leaves to great effect on this card, love it. They do say crafters don't waste anything:-) I love all of the garden related dies and colouring the handles and shafts etc on the tiny tools is quite relaxing. Clear video as usual thank you.

Scottydog said...

Thank you Sue for showing us what can be done with the leaves from your resist card. I made some autumnal leaves with pixies the other day & they really turned out great. Unfortunately don’t have the garden dies to do this card, but thanks for the idea.

CCM said...

Have the cascading leaves but not the garden dies, still this card is a great inspiration. Thanks you. Off to watch the video.

Hugs from Toronto to you all and special hugs to all missing friends.
Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only across the pond Wilsonette

A fun card design. Great double use of the pixie powdered leaves. I am loving your little scenes. Looking forward to more of these mise en scenes. Thanks for the wonderful video.

Pawprintx4 said...

This precious card and the original Pixied card are both winners. Nice to use every bit of that fabulous Pixie powder.I am not ready for any of the real leaves however as I am into Spring right now....everything is blooming and the grass it turning green so that is my mind set.
I have wondered about the spray glue too, Ursula.
Everyone enjoy your day!

Those pixie powdered leaves are just the color of Fall and the scene that you have created with your lovely dies is how we spend a lot of Fall days. The card just says Fun, Fun, Fun.

Good Day to you Sue and to all Wilsonettes.
A Fabulous card today Sue and the video is really instructive. The colours remind me so much of my years in Canada living in the Lake district of Ontario where the Fall colours were just like your background for this card.
Happy day to all.
