WPlus9 Throwback Thursday #10, Colour Q #323, AAA Cards #55, SSS Monday – 4 January, SSS Wednesday – 6 January

Hello … bonjour!  I’m popping in this evening with a snippets-of-time-over-the-last-few-days card and squeezing past one of Mr Linky’s closing doors at the same time …

WPlus9 TT10, Colour Q 323, AAA 55, SSSM 4-1, SSSW 6-1Snippet 1 … a watercolour card panel was stamped repeatedly with a border from WPlus9‘s Quilt Prints and white heat embossed.  Snippet 2 … the inside of each diamond was randomly coloured with Ziggies (Laura B parlance!) and a water brush.  Snippet 3 … the you was die cut from glitter paper and black craft foam, the secondary sentiment was white heat embossed on a slice of black card, and they were stacked and/or adhered to the card front (they’re both from WPlus9).  Snippet 4 … the diamonds were Wink of Stella’d, a trio of sequins and seed beads were scattered around the sentiment, and the finished panel was fixed flat to the card base.  Aren’t snippets handy little things?

I’m playing along at …

WPlus9 Throwback Thursday – Inspired by Maureen’s Quilt Cuts … in stamp form!

Colour Q – Kraft, Pool Party, Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, White … my closest colours.

AAA Cards – Glitter … the WoS on the diamonds and the die cut you.

SSS Monday – Something New … the die cut

SSS Wednesday – Something New … toujours the die cut!

There’s plenty of inspiration waiting for me in Feedly … I’m looking forward to a gentle meander through all that loveliness … see you soon!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

    Hey Anita! I love all your snippets : ) Gorgeous card, and I’m wondering why the heck I’ve never thought to use my seed beads like sequins. I look past them every time I reach for sequins even. I need to change that. Hope you’ve off to a wonderful start in the new year!!

    Gorgeous card Anita – love the way you’ve coloured in the background; if you look at it one way you see the curved diamonds and if you look another you see the circles. Love the black and white embossing and the added sequins etc. Perfect.

    Snippeting into greatness. Wowzers, girl. Fantastic watercoloring on perfect stamping. I’m blown away. Don’t think I’d have the courage to even attempt something this beautiful. Fantastic card with an absolutely, positively brilliant design my sweet friend. Sending you hugs and bisous!!!!xo

    Another fabulous card, Anita! I love the subtle shimmer of the embossed circles around your watercolored diamonds! Beautiful colors, and the shadow you created with black c/s is such a great touch for your die cut sentiment!

    It may be snippets of time, Anita, but you managed to hit 5 challenges with this lovely item. I had to zoom in because I couldn’t believe this was the quilt stamp. I have it and never thought to use it this way, even if I could stamp it perfectly like you did. I love the watercolor look of the diamonds and how the black foam highlights the sentiment. Pinned for future reference

    Wow…Anita, this is just amazing. I love your wonderful design and those colors are so pretty. Thanks for joining us at ColourQ!

  15. Anna-Karin

    That background is amazing! Love the colours. Thank you so much for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge in our first challenge of the year. Happy New Year!

  16. Geri G

    I’m calling this a perfectly ‘snippet-ed’ (yep, channeling Darnell) creation. Love the softness of the water colored ‘quilt’ elements and the sparkly sentiment! The black foam sure does add awesome depth and outline to the sentiment 🙂

  17. Michelle Bala

    Such an amazing card, Anita!!! Completely in love with your watercoloring! Thanks for joining us at ColourQ!

    Snippet sensational; watercolour WOW and die-cut delights, my friend! Looks like you and your Ziggies are bonding well! I’ve had a set of 12 for a few months now and NO LUCK! Don’t know what I’m doing wrong…Mr. Recycle Bin grins with joy whenever he sees me bring them out. Guarantee his tummy will be rotund with fullness!
