Found some More Snippets!

I received this lovely bear stamp set yesterday and wanted to have a play - he was triple stamped on a snippet of white card using three different colours of ink and his bow tie was also done in a similar way as was the balloon he is holding.  Details of colours and stamps are shown below.  I had quite a few surplus die cuts left from the card I made for the Snippets Challenge a couple of weeks ago and have managed to incorporate some of them into the card for this week..  The brown layer was also a piece of 'waste' from a square frame which was die cut quite a while ago and the greeting was cut from more snippets of the turquoise card. I'm still surprised that my piles of snippets never seems to diminish despite using them whenever I can.

There is a pretty teatime/butterfly card to see and also of course the opportunity to be entered into a draw for a lovely prize if you pop over to the Playground to take a look (just follow the link above).

Stamps - Baby Bear and Balloon Celebration from Stampin' Up
Greeting - Britannia die
Die Cuts - Swirly Scribbles from Stampin' Up
Colours - So Saffron, More Mustard, Tempting Turquoise SU; Rich Cocoa Memento


  1. He looks like a really cuddly teddy Val. A gorgeous snippets card. I agree with you about the snippets. They just don't seem to disappear. Barbxx

  2. Hi Val! Sorry it's been such a long time since I dropped by but the past 4 months have been a somewhat tedious and very anxious family time. Hopefully we are on the way out of it now our new grandson is safely here but his daddy is going to need to be careful for some months yet.

    Anyway, it's lovely to be able to drop by and see this gorgeous card. The teddy reminds me of the one I bought our new grandson when I found out he was on the way.
