Enter..... Chloé

When I lived in Hong Kong in the 1970s/80s. there was a regular TV advert for a fashion design brand where the voice -over simply said "Enter..... Chloe" and that gets stuck in my head every single time I use the beautiful Chloe Stem die (Memory box?) so I've tried to work it out of my system today by using it FOUR times.

I combined snippets of light and dark purple card and cut the Chloe stem twice with each, and also used an old Cuttlebug die (it came bundled with my first ever Cuttlebug years ago) to cut two squares of each colour.

The Chloe heads are stuck to the squares, slightly overlapping the edges, and the stems trimmed off at the corner. I tried various arrangements of the squares and settled on this, with them radiating out from a central gem. The sentiment is stamped with purple Versacolor and embossed with clear powder.


I am sharing this with

Pixie's Snippets Playground - week 223 - if you are an infrequent visitor to the Playground, or perhaps even have never played, you really MUST go over there this week, not just to drool over the beautiful picks and inspiration, but to join in yourself and play for a really wonderful prize!

Wow Jane, yet another terrific way to use that lovely die - one of my very favourites. And in purples it does work just perfectly!

Great to see you in the Playground!
