Pixie Snippets 211

I was one of the lucky winners in the big give-away event from Pixie Snippets challenge and thought I would use my prize before I finally put away all the Christmas bits and pieces still  lying around on my desk.  This Woodware stamp lends itself to many interpretations and I decided to go with paper piecing in an effort to use up more of my snippets.  There was enough of the chosen background paper to stamp the image onto and cut out the numbers and the holly leaves and berries were cut from other bits and pieces.  The image was then stamped onto a piece of white, mounted onto a red snippet which had been embossed with a snowflake design.  A circular greeting was popped onto a scalloped circle and there it is my offering this week for Pixie snippets.  Di has chosen some great picks from last week's entries and also made a very pretty butterfly card so do pop along and take a look.

  8. Wow Val - what a brilliant way to use the stamp - paper piecing to pick up the background paper is an idea I certainly hadn't thought about. It's lovely to see you using your prize straight away :)
