Raiding the snippets box for Rudolph day

Most crafters have a box of snippets around the place, and most crafters remember they have it and use it regularly. But then I am not most crafters and my overflowing snippets box is sadly neglected, buried under a pile of ‘work to do’ boxes.  So as I had a relatively free day today I decided to raid it and create a card or two for Rudolph Day at the same time.

Materials used:
Snippets of various sizes and flavours!
X-cut and Spellbinders snowflake dies
Let it snow . . . acrylic stamp

I took all my snippets and arranged them into a card! There is not much else to say really. The penguins, complete with googly eyes were from some crackers we had at Christmas, the backing paper you might recognise left over from a previous project, even the shaped card was already made up and abandoned in the box. So both cards were completely made up from snippets.

With all those snippets I feel a trip to the Snippets Playground is called for. Maybe I will see you there?

Thank you for popping in. Take care.


I would like to enter my card(s) into these challenges:
Rudolph Day February 2015
Snippets Playground Week 165


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.

    Love the snippets cards. Those penguins are adorable. I feel like I know my snippets really well at the mo…cuz I just had to pack them all up and then unpack them and organize them for the move.
    I am like you and do not use mine enough! I set up my new room with all my UFO’s and snippets close to my workdesk…hope it inspires me to make some cute cards like yours

    Thanks for taking part in the February Rudolph Days Challenge…and good luck!

      Thanks Scrappymo (hope you don’t mind being called that!). I hope the dust has settled from moving, it can be a very stressful time.

    An awesome card from all your fun little snippets. They were just waiting for your magic touch to bring them to life in this beautiful card. So glad you brought them over to Rudy Day #2 as well. Hope all is going well for you. TFS & Big hugs.

      Thanks Mary. I love penguins, my favourite animal, so I could not just throw the little ones out with the rest of the post Christmas debris. I still have 3 left to play with another time.

    Thanks Di, I think it must be a problem between Mr Linky and WordPress, maybe they have fallen out and are not talking to each other anymore!
