Just a snippet

Time for a challenge, I feel.  Having enjoyed myself last week making the Seasons Greeting for the Snippets Playground challenge I thought I would have another go.  I was making some ATC’s for an exchange the theme of which is Winter Wonderland, but the stamp I used for one of them was larger than the ATC size so I had some snippets to use.  This, then, is my entry for Pixies Snippets Playground – Week 107. 

Items Used:
Stamps:
Let it snow – Stamps Happen
Let is snow text – Get Stamping Magazine

Snippet of snowflake background paper
The small stamped area in the middle is cut from the large Let it snow stamp and painted with watercolours.  Then I mounted it onto a bit of snowflake paper left over from making Christmas present boxes.  The whole topper is fixed to the card blank using 3D foam pads and Let it Snow stamped at the bottom.  Job done.

I do wish it would snow – anything but more rain!  So goodbye for now from Soggy Somerset!



About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, one son-in-law and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
