Pixie Snippets 129

This week my card for the Pixie snippets challenge really is just that - all snippets from my various bits boxes, the largest piece being the background which is a long discontinued design paper from Stampin' Up - the last piece I have of that one .Everything else was punched from scraps, including some tiny pieces from an experiment with inked embossing folder technique.  I can't remember how long ago this was done but I'm sure I used most of it originally then squirrelled away this scrap which was just large enough for two one inch squares (and no I didn't keep the left overs this time!!). Once I'd decided to use those little squares it took me quite a while to come up with a way of using them but I think I got there in the end.

Background - Stampin' Up designer paper
Brown Banner - Sizzix thinlets die (Stampin' Up) Cuttlebug embossing folder
Tag - Stampin' Up Tag Top punch
Embellishments - 1" square punch and Postage punch - Stampin' Up
Butterflies - Embosslits die, Sizzix for Stampin' Up


  1. I love this and what a great use of your snippets. My box of bits is overflowing so I really must try and use some of them up

  2. That all goes together really well, great colours & use of all the snippets. Glad to see the 1" punch had a go!

  3. Great Snippets card Val and its amazing what you can make from all those little snippets of you colours and your embossed banner...


  4. Lovely card Val and I'm so impressed with your snippet challenge! My bag of bits is getting too big and I keep tripping over it. My craft room is basically the cupboard under my front steps ( victorian town house ) and measures 7' x 3' sloping down to the end!! I may have to off load some snippets:)

  11. Hi Val, what a super lovely snippety card you've made out of the beautiful browns. So many punches & dies, and it is perfect for either male or female. You used some nifty SU products in such a creative wonderful way to make a lovely card. Nice to see you in The Playground, where I've been MIA for a while. TFS & Hugs
