snippets challenge

Pixie snippets challenge is one that I have often thought of doing , having admired that way Val has worked her way through her oddments collection, but never got around to actually doing it - partly because I try to throw out all the bits I used to save!
However, my current addiction to playing with brusho inks has meant that I had a little pile of bits that I couldn't bear to throw out.............then the sale at Chocolate Baroque tempted me..............
The result is my first ever card for this challenge - the stamp comes from the holly bells sheet,and was stamped with versamark and gold embossed onto an A6 card blank, as was the greeting.
The same stamp was stamped in black versafine onto some of my scraps, and some were so small I could just squeeze on one layer of the tree! Layers were cut out and glued onto the appropriate places on the stamped image - and my first Christmas card of the year!
Very quick and simple, and the pile of cutout bits will make several more of the same...................


  1. A lovely Christmas card and a great use of your snippets

  3. This tree stamp looks brilliant for using up some of the bits and pieces - I've been trying to avoid looking at new stamps because I'm so easily tempted!!
