Wednesday, 10 June 2020


Hello bloggers!  Today we have a pretty Endless Options card layered and made with pixie powders.  I made the pixie powder card using Peacock Green, Candy Pink, and Midnight Blue. (Truth be told, I didn't mean to put pink in it but grabbed it by mistake but rather liked it when it was done!)  I used the Paulette Background die and cut into the pixied card.  I added a black shadow offset to the background then used the Paulette Edgers to cut it into sections.  I stairstepped it up from both sides using mounting foam with the centre section raised above the sides (you can see it clearer in the close ups).  I cut a strip of vellum and added tails to both sides.  I cut the Congratulations in black and glued it across the vellum and added it across the centre of the card.  Using the Jasmine Flower die set, I made three flowers and added them to opposite corners as accents.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x  7" in size. 

Just a quick note to let you know that the Festive Collection 2020 launch will be starting tomorrow morning on the blog at 6am!  Hope to see you then!  All for now. Sue x

Mooorning, afternoon or evening friends from wherever you're popping in from.
I'm pleased you gave us the brilliant close up shots of today's sample because it was only then I could see clearly how you'd cut the layer from pixied cardstock and that flash of pink goes great by the way lol. I've seen the preview of your new collection but it's the samples I'm really looking forward to most of all, so while we wait.....

Hi Sue, from a dull, damp and dreary Central Scotland. Your card was made just to brighten up the day :-) Love the pixied card and if you had not said otherwise I would have said that the touch of pink was sheer genius! Looking forward to the launch tomorrow and seeing all your samples.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Really love these colours and together with the dies you have chosen to me, give the impression of the seashore with the waves crashing in. Love those flowers I just had to buy the dies.
Looking forward to the launch tomorrow as I have seen the dies and can't wait to see what you have made with them.
