Pixie's Snippets Playground Weeks 208/209 Celebration - Prize B (more than one to be won!)


Time for another 'Snippets Playground Celebration' prize - and this is my snippets card. It's a bit of a cheat to be honest as I made this card way back in August 2013! I had wanted to re-do it for today's post but wherever possible am trying to keep away from spending time at the craft desk - so here it is again:

I used:

- 7" x 5" white card stock

- Woodware 'Christmas Date' stamp, red, green and gold Pro Markers

- little tickles of Stickles 'Crystal Ice' on the background snowflakes

- red 'dewdrops' on the holly berries.

- then I stamped the 25 part of the image again, onto a snippet of double sided sticky sheet and then carefully cut out the numbers stuck them onto the card, peeled the front of the sticky off and then covered with 'Gold' Glamour Dust and whisked off the excess with a big soft makeup brush

I do keep even the smallest snippets of double sided sticky/adhesive sheet - they always come in handy sooner or later :)

Not surprisingly, this is today's prize, which is one of my all-time favourite Christmas stamps:


It's the Woodware 'Christmas Date' stamp. The drill is to add a comment underneath this post if you'd like to be in the draw for this particular prize, and it gets better - I actually have SIX of these to give away! I might be wrong here but I just felt that this truly was a stamp that many of you would love to own. If not then I got it VERY wrong! It'sreally striking without too much work/colouring - and won't date (snigger, date, geddit?!) - so I do hope it'll be a popular prize, great for quick and very effective Christmas cards I think.

I have to say that there are only two prizes where I have multiples to give away over the next week and a half and this is one of them - but there are some really lovely prizes coming along! 

At the end of all of the celebrations I'll do a massive draw session for all the prizes using the one Mr Linky - which is on the main snippets post HERE - so you do need to have entered at least one snippets make over on that post to be in with a chance :) Maximum of three entries please.

It's a gorgeous stamp and a fab card - I love what you did with the numbers. I've not put my card into the gallery yet, well TBH the bits for making it are out on my table but that's as far as I've got so far - but as long as I actually get it finished I'm saying a big yes please! Hope the grout control is making some progress.

I don't think you got this wrong, Di... this is a FAB stamp that a lot of people would love to own - me included, (so that's a YES, in case you hadn't got that, lol) ; I'm liking the "it doesn't take too much work to make it look good" bit - always a huge plus for Christmas cards!! I'm like you I keep every scrap of double sided adhesive paper... that stuff's pricey! Mind you my hubby would say I keep every scrap of everything, lol. Donna x
