There's Only One Like You

Hello crafters!  Today's card started with a Pixie Powder background.  I used Rich Gold, Emerald Green, Midnight Blue and Purple Violet Pixie Powders on to a piece of coconut white card and allowed it to dry well.  I cut the Dotty Scalloped Background in white and glued it on top of the pixied background.  Next, I cut it into three sections and added mounting foam to raise it.  I adhered all three strips to a piece of white card.  I used some of the leftover Pixied Powder background to cut three Cosmos Flowers out of it.  I added the coordinating white outline to the flowers and assembled all the pieces.  I cut a Pierced Flag and used the There's Only One Like You sentiment cut from the pixied card.  I cut another in black and used it as a shadow and mounted the phrase on to the flag.  I used the flowers at the edge of the flag and added white leaves from the Cosmos set to accent.  I completed the card with simple white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x 8" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue
Well you just can’t go wrong with anything pixie! That colour combo is just beautiful. This card is stunning but I bet ‘in the flesh’ it is absolutely magnificent. I know from experience from my visits to Ally Pally that seeing your cards up close and personal is such a joyful experience. As wonderful as they look on this blog nothing can prepare you for how they look ‘in real life’. They are out of this world.
And there are the Cosmos Flowers - again - calling my name - telling me I need them in my life x
Happy Wednesday everyone x

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Beautiful card Sue.
I will look forward to doing the pixie background when my family from Wisconsin have gone back home.
I often wish there was a blog that was interactive but I guess that wouldn't be possible would it. Anyway my dear, your blog and the other one I subscribe to make my day, every day for which I thank you

Good afternoon Sue, beautiful card, the colours are stunning! Love Jean xxx

Scottydog said...

Just love those colours & I have them all but as we know with pixies no two turn out the same! I have the Dies as well so there is no excuse except I have had to pack up my craft room for an impending move (fingers crossed). Thank you Sue for the inspiration.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. So sorry I forgot to comment on yesterday's post but the comment for today will be almost what I would have said yesterday! They are both great cards for using up all the backgrounds we will have created that are waiting for the right occasion to use. These have also given us an incentive for getting all our bits out and having a play. Love them both.


Suzzette Yandle said...

A beautiful creation and a lovely combination of pixie powder for the background. Cool and calm looking. Thank you for sharing.

CCM said...

A lovely combination of pixie powders to create this lovely card. I really like how you have cut the background into 3, it is different and very effective.The Cosmos Flowers are so pretty with or without outline or even when you used only the outline dies; so versatile.

Hugs from Toronto

Suemac said...

Another lovely sample

Eunice Astle said...

Spectacular card Sue, love how the pixie powder peaks out from the background!!!

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

I love, love, love Pixie Powders and the combination you have used for your card today are marvelous. They are so happy and fresh and make me think someplace in the Caribbean. At the moment, the Cosmos flower set is my favorite. Just a "feel good" card.

Have a wonderful day.

Wow! What an amazing card. X

Judy Hollers said...

The Dotty Scalloped Background die on top of the Pixie Powder background looks like beautiful stained glass. This is a lovely, serene card that anyone would be very pleased to receive. Hugs, Judy
