Using up the scrap

It has been quite a while since I last went to play in the Snippets Playground, so I have decided that it is high time to rectify the situation.  It  just so happens I have just the cards.

Materials used:
lots of snippets of patterned paper

memento tuxedo black ink pad
Celtic knot stamp, Clarity Stamps
sentiment stamp, magazine freebie
Spectrum Noir pens
white card stock

First I stamped the Celtic Knot onto the different squares of patterned paper. I then cut some smaller squares to teabag fold for the corner decorations. I coloured in the knot design with the pens. Then came the fun part, arranging all the bits to make different cards.

Thank you for visiting.




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, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    These are awesome. I don’t do teabag folding and it’s fascinating to see the designs you’ve created. What a perfect use of your snippets to make something lovely. Well done! TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs
