Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 156 & 157

Well folks, we reached a little milestone - this is post 156 since I took the Snippets Playground over from the lovely Jules, so we're celebrating three years of madness and mayhem over the next two weeks as a MASSIVE Thank You to all of you for being such fantastic playmates. Quite a few peeps say the Playground is a happy and fun place to come and play - and I always respond that it's all down to you lovely playmates! I just open and close the gates, hunt out hidden stocks of mulled wine at Christmas, console Parsnip when he has to wait in line for a turn on the swings - and keep the fire extinguishers up to date!

So, for the next two weeks the gates will stay open - you can come and play up to three times in total - and there will be three bumper Christmas themed prizes. Shaz in Oz suggested splitting the prize and to be honest it will split quite nicely into three - A, B and C - one prize for each year :) I'll explain more about how it will work later on in this post, but for now here's my first of three snippets cards featuring items that make up Prize A. And I'd like to enter this card into Merry Monday #139 'Winter Wonderland' challenge.
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card blank

- a snippet of snowflake backing paper from the LOTV 'Frosty Christmas' paper pad

- the hillsides were die cut using a plain curved die from the Spellbinders 'A2 Curved Borders One' set, with Stickles 'Crystal Ice' along the edge

- the trees were die cut using a Marianne die (LR0136), snippets of white card covered with self-adhesive film which was peeled off after die cutting and sprinkled with Cosmic Shimmer 'Diamond Sprinkles'

- snippets of red and white card (plus a little scrap of white and red patterned paper for the long johns!) and the 'Santa's Laundry' die by Cheery Lynn, Then I attached the washing line to each of the trees and topped them with a Josy Rose silver star nail head

- the sentiment was die cut twice and layered, using a Crafts-Too 'Merry Christmas die'

Usually I wait until later on to show the prize contents but this week I'll also list what you can win after each of my three snippets cards. From the card above the following four goodies make up prize A: a Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders One die set, a Marianne Tree die (LR0136 ), a Cheery Lynn 'Santa's Laundry' die and the Crafts-Too 'Merry Christmas die'.

My second snippets make was such fun, using a Sizzix Hero Arts stamp and die cut set:
I used:

- A6 white card blank

- snippets of white card, one of which I embossed for the snowy background using a folder from the Hero Arts set of 2 folders called 'Christmas Words and Dots'

- the cute snowman was stamped and die cut using the Sizzix Hero Arts 'Snowman #2' set onto plain white and a patterned snippet (for the scarf), then pieced together (bought as a huge bargain over at Sizzix - and it's still on offer as I type if you don't want to risk missing out - £19.99 reduced to £4.99!!)

- final touch, the sentiment was stamped using a stamp from the Personal Impressions 'Many Greetings' set and SU's 'Old Olive' ink pad then punched out using SU's 'Large Oval' punch

As I said, this was great fun to make and would be a really easy 'batch bake' card.

So, three of the things I used make up prize B: the Hero Arts set of 2 embossing folders called 'Christmas Words and Dots', the Sizzix Hero Arts 'Snowman #2' set and the Personal Impressions 'Many Greetings' set. We have actually had the embossing folders as a prize once before, I had bought two for the Playground and then one went missing - found it the other week, wedged behind the back of a drawer here! Slightly crumpled acetate box but the folders are fine :)


My third snippets card was super quick and easy, mostly as I wanted to offer the Christmas stamp I bought for the toy box absolutely ages ago - along with something extra. And that has totally cleaned out the toy box of Christmas goodies - hooray! And, as this card truly was a last minute dash I'd like to enter it into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Whatever is still urgently needed for Christmas' as well as Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for December:
I used:

- 5" x 5" square white card blank

- Penny Black's 'Mystical' stamp, stamped using VersaFine 'Vintage Sepia' ink pad

- tickles of Wink of Stella, which are probably hard to see, gold on the body, silver on the antlers and sparkles around them, and a clear line along the bottom

- a little snippet of the last of my red and gold ribbon to finish off

And if you didn't already guess, Prize C is a Penny Black 'Mystical Deer' stamp like I used today plus a set of three Wink of Stella pens in Clear, Gold and Silver.
So, that's a lot of Christmassy stuff to be won girls! I managed to get some good deals whilst shopping around and the purchases were spread out over time so it truly isn't bread and jam for Christmas dinner :)

Onto this week's picks:
I totally adore this very Scandinavian Christmas card, and all the more so as it was made by Jules, who started off the Snippets challenge in the first place.

This fabulous decoupage Christmas card made by Andrea really caught my eye (the good one!).

Such a gorgeous and so elegant Wedding Day card, made by Jenny H. Only the silver scroll used a snippet - but that's enough to come and play :)

Mrs A is always altering and upcycling things, and this frame is one of her latest creations - beautiful!

I know, this is pick number five in an already busy post with a lot to digest. But I couldn't leave this wonderful 3D easel card out, made by Kitty!

No new playmates this week - just as well, with all the partying behind the bike shed and this comment left by Sarn 'Shy-eye-lent night (!) . . . ho-oh-leeee night . . . all ish kalm, all is bwighttttttttt . . . hic! No Mish, no hiccuping here Mish! Fancy a mince pie?????'. Then Sally left this comment just to add her two-pennorth 'Not shuuur what Parshnip put in the hot toddy, but it deffo is hittin the schpot, hic! We wishewww a mewee cwismus an a haaaaappppppppeeeeee neeewwwww yeeaaarrrr! Me an Sarn is goin to join a choir!'

Tee, hee, I rest my case!!!!! Anyone got some ear plugs?! Best move on while the going's good I think!

And the winner of last week's Memory Box 'Woodland Branch' die and the robin stickers is:

Well done Karen, I'll pop the prize in the post for you as soon as possible, I already have your address :)

So let's just go over the slight change in the rules for the coming fortnight:

1. The Playground gates will remain open for two weeks,  and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday 3rd January and will open again at midnight UK time on the same day. Maximum of three entries over the two weeks.

2. There are three different 'bundles' on offer this week. I've labelled them A, B
and C for ease.

3. Here's how it'll work, I hope! As always, do make sure you say if you're playing along to be in the prize draw in a comment. You might already have some of the goodies on offer or just not fancy them - that's fine by me so don't think I would be at all offended if you say no thanks. BUT, if you want to be in with a chance for all or just part of the prize bundles (A,B and C) then please say which one(s). It's absolutely fine to say ALL - that's what this is about. But if you fancy just a couple of things in some of the prizes, then also say so - if your name is drawn for a prize first then you get first dibs! My plan is that at least three different people will be winners, maybe more if some of you only want part of a prize.

4. I think it might be a bit of a logistical nightmare for me but I'll be keeping an eye (the good one!) on your comments and building up lists of who's interested in what! Do let me know if this sounds like a right ole muddle - I've got it clear in my own mind - but then might not have explained it very well.

Mr Linky is below - please let me know if you have any problems linking, it's easy for me to sort out so don't struggle on alone :)

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and everything good in 2015!

Love from

Di and Parsnip

Lovely cards Di, I 'specially like the deer one, what a gorgeous stamp!
Thank you for choosing my card to showcase amongst the other beautiful picks.
Great prize packs so I will say YES PLEASE to them all : )

Darnell J Knauss said...

Oh, my goodness, what a Christmas treat to get ALL these beautiful cards from you, Di! I'm very tempted, but must say no thank you to your marvelous treats on offer! You are so kind to everyone and so generous! Thank you for all your hard work on our behalf, even though you downplay it. It IS a lot of work! I'm bringing two cards to play, but only linking the one since they are the same design. I'm also bringing an innocent cake, prolly applesauce. Yeah, that's it. Applesauce!

Continued healing of your eye, Happy Christmas, and all the very best in the new year to you and Len and Parsnip and Spike!! Love and hugs, Darnell

SARN said...

Ho ho ho! Wishing all my little playmates a VERY Happy Christmas. I would sing u a song but me and Sally are a little bit hoarse after partaking of Parsnip's hot toddy the other day! We were practising just in case Gareth turned up!

Wow. . . u weren't kidding about it being a bumper Christmas bash. Lots of lovely cards you're displaying with all your terrific prizes. I will definitely try and get over to play in the next two weeks, but I will be playing just for fun.

Congrats to all the showcased peeps . .. Brilliant projects & lots of inspiration.

Hugs to everyone xxxx

Sue - said...

Great picks as usual and flabby prizes too. Oh shucks I missed out on the hot toddy! Not sure if I'll get time to play but will certainly try once everyone goes home! But meanwhile hope your eye continues to improve and that you, Len, Parsnip and Spike have a lovely Christmas!

Sally H said...

(Croakily) Gorgeous cards, Miss Di! Hoping I will get to join in very soon. Great showcase too. Sarn might have been hoping for Gareth, but I was hoping Eric Whitacre was going to show up... (if you haven't heard of him, his website is here http://ericwhitacre.com/) What a Christmas present that would be!!! ;)

Viv's Visuals said...

I got to the playground earlier this week a bit late for the party cos I'd been doin me good deed and preparing to feed the five thousand - (well 43 anyway) - and that Darn Sarn and SIlly Sally had taken all the glasses (and the straws) and were hiding (laying down flat on their backs) in the bushes when I arrived behaving in a manner that could only be described as 'drunk and disorderly' - I have arrested many for less I may tell you .....
I hope that the pair of them have sore heads and real bad hangovers as punishment for dwinking all the plonkie and not saving me even a wee drop......
PS - Nice picks this week Miss Di and some scrummy cards you've made - you see -you've been busy whilst them other 2 have just been disgraceful! x

Sandra H said...

Wow Di you have been busy with your 3 creations all of which as always are simply stunning!! great that the playground is staying open later than usual too gives us plenty of time to create our creations .....lovely array of cards and well done Karen enjoy your winnings looking forward to another challenge as always and l'd like to wish your Di and Len a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year take care xxxx

Carol L said...

Your cards are fabulous this week Di, as are the picks for last week's playground! Congrats to them all, including Karen P on her win!
You never cease to amaze me with your generosity and stamina in keeping this playground going! Let me just say how much I love visiting and playing here, even if a few of us fall by the alcohol-infused wayside now and then (not mentioning any names mind you) so let me prepare to end this year of 2014 with a hearty "thank-you" for all you do for so many!! Continued healing of that eye, and a very merry Christmas to you and Len!!
oh, and "yes please" to that amazing pile of prizes up for grabs! You've really outdone yourself once again :)

Kath said...

Hi Di - Lovely cards and fabulous prizes! I'll be in the playground soon and would love a chance to win any of the prizes, please.
Hope your eye is still improving.

kanda said...

Thanks for showing my card this week

Wishing you and everyone in the playground a very merry christmas xx

Liz said...

Love all your cards this week, especially the first one with Santa's clothes hanging out to dry. Hope they didn't shrink in the wash! ;-)

Great picks this again this week and congratulations to Karen P on her win.

What a fantastic set of prizes - and THREE chances to win! You are so generous Di! I would love to win any of them, although set A is my favourite. I'm a YES PLEASE to go in the pot this time.

Hope everyone has a very Happy Christmas and a great 2015........ with plenty of time for crafting! xx

Elizabeth said...

Hello Di, Congratulations on the three year anniversary here at the Snippet Playground - I can't believe it's been that long, it's seem like only yesterday you took over from Jules. Love all your cards this week ... and I especially love Santa's washing line - brilliant! Much as I love all the prizes, they are absolutely fabulous and can't say I have a favourite, but as usual I'm only playing for fun so do count me out. The showcased makes are all beautiful and well chosen too. Right, off to do something about our Sunday supper. Take care with that eye. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

Hazel said...

Oh what a lot of loveliness here today, with all your festive crafting, Di and all the highlights of last week in the playground. Thanks for sharing for CHNC challenge 208 and CHNC challenge extra for December - much appreciated. Wishing you and all Pixie playground mates a very Happy Christmas. xxx

Eve Maynard said...

Hi Di,
well done and congratulations for running the playground for the last 3 years. I'm sure that it has not been easy with truants, tale telling and tantrums from Parsnip!! And now there is booze being smuggled in- Tut, Tut!!
3 fabulous cards and splendid top picks.
I will make it easy for you as I have one item from A and B so please could you enter me in the pot for prize C.
Many thanks Di and I know that everyone appreciates you too.
Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2015.
Love and hugs from Eve xx.

Kathleen said...

Well you lost me at the Playground gates as the last time I ventured in they were hanging off the hinges.
Fabulous cards Di and they showcase the prizes so very well. Great picks this week, mine is still in draft, hopefully will do better for the next two weeks and if I do enter I would like to part of the draw for the Hero Arts package.

Maybe next year, 3 entry's but in one post!
Ok naughty me, I have opened the bag of honey roasted peanuts and cashews, if you wanted a hand full better be quick.

Greta said...

Boy do I love your cards, Di & wonderfully inspiring picks, as always! Count me in for all but the deer stamp & the santa die. Happy Holidays!

Wonderful cards Di and I'm really pleased to have been able to join in this time using some paper from my scraps box (should I be lucky enough B or C would be welcome!). It's always a pleasure to see what you and the playmates have been up to. Wishing you a Peaceful Christmas xx

Jules said...

Hi Di

I left comment here when I posted my snippet makes yesterday .. .. but it doesn't seem to have appeared. Never mind. I will try again.

Fabulous makes from you and fabulous prizes too. I can't believe it is a whole three years since you took over the playground keys. It feels more like three weeks!!! LOL!!

Thank you for featuring my Christmas card .. .. I was really chuffed to see it there.

Thank you also for your lovely comment on my blog regarding Steve's music. I forwarded it to him to make sure he read your beautiful words.

I hope your eye is improving and you are resting it wherever possible.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy 2015.

Love Jules

p.s. Just playing for fun and for the lovely company.

Brenda said...

Karen Petitt said...

Just popped over to say Merry Christmas and have a look at the gorgeous top picks and oh my I got the random linky thingy! Thank you very much Miss PIxie - no rush to get to the PO - not got the time to craft much right now - my headless chicken impersonation again!
Congratulations on the three years too! Going to take a little time out but will be back in about a week but until then make sure you and the mister have a wonderful Christmas huni! A quick kiss under the mistletoe, thank you for everything Di - you and the rest of the girls have been blooming awesome to me and I won't forget it! Karen xx

Karenladd said...

What absolutely adorable cards Di, and congrats on your 3 years running the playground! All three cards are wonderful but that Santa's laundry line is beyond cute!! Yes, I would love to win any of these prizes, but especially craving prize #1 or #2 with the cute dies!! You have a Merry Merry Christmas!!

SHartl said...

What fun!! Your cards are all so cute and love all the snippets that you used for the die cuts! I would love to be in the running for either prize A or Prize B (especially prize A though because I only own 4 dies to date!). We recently moved to a new home so I am busy as a bee but I still have time for crafting! Thanks so much!

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

Hi Di my post is very snippety as all but the white base on two cards are snippets! result = three cards, two for next year, one given away today :D

Wow an ultra cute lot of makes by you - sometimes wish we have snow here in Christmas time but do love our summery one :D and so rarely can bring myself to make a snowy card.
DOUBLE WOW - some bonuses over there are in Snippet land for prizes.. However to help you, just if my name happens to be in draw:
1. will skip Santa's clothes die of first prize, rest is yum.
2. will take embossing folder of prize 2 (snowmen quite not for Aussie summer, but like the folder for uses)
3. Would love take wink of Stella for prize 3... if happen to be in it ..

Really difficult this time, aren't I???

Every blessing on the LORD dear Di .. think said thank YOU for your cute LOTV card and trust you had mine okay :D

I will be back again I guess with another entry but not sure how often will be posting.
love and may God bless your dear sweet kind heart, Di,
Shaz.xx

Looks as if the party's started without me! The prizes are fab, I'd love to be in the hat for any part of any of them, and the cards you've created are fantastic. Well done to everyone whose cards were chosen last week, they are fab too.
I've added one card, made with the House Mouse stamps I won on my first visit here, and I already have the images stamped and coloured to make another, so I'll be back soon, as long as the C******** word doesn't get in the way of good crafting time!

I've made it to the playground at last so I'm chuffed. (A word we used to use at school, I vaguely remember.)
I'm enjoying all the great card inspiration and would love to be in with a chance for prize B or C. Thanks so much and congrats for keeping the playground open and in order for so long.

There are a lot of folks who haven´t taken time out for the holiday. There´s been some lovely cards shown this week. You will have a hard time chosing your pick-of-the-weeks. Kate x

Cornelia W said...

Happy New Year to you Di ! Hope 2015 will be good to you and that your eye heals up all well. Thanks you for the enormous work you put in with my favorite challenge. Always such a pleasure to come over here.

kanda said...

Hi Miss Di and all the playmates - Happy New Year to you all.

I hope your eye is getting better now - it's 'lucky' you managed to get an 'emergency' appointment or you could be waiting 'til 2016 - not quite sure who (or what) is running the dear NHS nowadays!!

I'm back with my 2nd card and I reread my last comment.... I hadn't really been on the wine - and what I meant to say was I would love to be entered for prize A minus the tree die (santa card goodies) and prize B (snowman card goodies). Hope that makes more sense. Also thank you for highlighting my card xx

scrappymo! said...

Finally dropped by with my cards. Have been under the weather with another injection (ugggh) and a bad cold. Sorry that I have left it to the last minute.
Love all the prizes and would love to play along this time. My all time favourite dies are in the First Prize!
That curved borders die is impossible to find over here!

Will try toget back with some more cards as not sure if this one counts as one or three. lol
Happy New Year

Happy new year. I am happy that I can participate in the fun. All three awards are beautiful, and each of them would be very ucieszała me:-). Cards made by you, as always, is a beautiful inspiration. Like the card presented by the participants of fun. It's a beautiful time.
