Snippets Challenge 124

The snippets on this week's challenge card are some stamped and coloured Christmas images which I 'found' when clearing out some of the accumulation of 'stuff' some of which hasn't been touched for years.  These were obviously done and cut out in the days when gel pens were all the rage for colouring - don't see them mentioned much nowadays.  Just as I was about to bin these bits I decided they would suit this challenge so rescued them and just cut some mats from scraps of card using the smaller sizes of a Spellbinder labels die set.  I must say the smaller sizes of the nesting dies don't get used nearly as much as the larger ones.  I found an odd Christmas Greeting to add and now that's another card for the Christmas pile.


  1. Great Christmas card Val and lovely way to use up all those little images..


  2. A great card made from your snippets and as you say another one for the Christmas box

  3. Great Christmas card Val, I love the unusual design and fab use of those images. This clearing is contagious, even hubby is doing some of his computer bits. Dare I open the Christmas bits, lol. Flora xx

  4. Great card made from snippets! How funny, I was using gel pens only yesterday afternoon - having neglected them for ages! The thing is, we daren't throw stuff out in case it makes a comeback :)

    And so true about us only using the larger cutting dies in Nesties sets. It's rare that I go to the smallest ones - they worked beautifully on you card here!

    Hugs, Di xx

  5. A great card Val - love the patchwork effect. I agree with Di, keep stuff long enough and you are bang on trend again at no cost - but only if you can find whee you stashed it away!

  6. A great card using up the snippits, and another for the christmas box too.
