Pixie's Snippets Playground - Weeks 260 & 261 - Prize H

And another prize to add to the pot, I hadn't realised just how many Christmas items I had squirreled away in the Playground toy box!

This is my snippets card, the snippets are the little images that I die cut and also the piece of fun foam I used to layer the card with:
I used:

- 4.25" x 5.5" white card blank, tent style

- a piece of white card stock, trimmed to slightly smaller than the card front

- stamped a twig from the Clearly Besotted 'Rockin' Robin' stamp set, with the sentiment underneath - using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink for both

- then stamped the robin onto a little snippet of white card using Versafine 'Vintage Sepia' ink pad and added his features using the teeniest stamp ever and Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink

- next I stamped his dotty red breast, using SU 'Real Red' ink

- stamped the holly using SU 'Old Olive' ink and then coloured the berries using a red Whispers marker

- then die cut the robin and the holly using the co-ordinating die set. The dies are 'solid' so I just die cut little templates to be sure I positioned the dies perfectly over the images

- added the image panel to the card front with a layer of white fun foam behind to make it 'pop' a bit

- stuck the holly and the robin in place using small pieces of thin sticky pad

This really is such a fun set of stamps and dies! Every little detail has been thought of - right down to a little Santa hat stamp with matching die :) The possibilities are endless - although I confess that my very quick and CAS version is practically the same as a sample over at Clearly Besotted :)

I love Clearly Besotted products and do hope that they swing back into production when the New Year is under way. Stephanie, quite wisely, decided to take a breather for a little while when things were becoming unmanageable. I don't think this stamp set is likely to be available again, although there is a pared down version over at Simon Says Stamp called 'Rockin' Robin 2' - along with the matching dies.

So here's today's prize, a Clearly Besotted 'Rockin' Robin' stamps set plus matching dies:
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 one snippets make over on that post to be in with a chance :) Maximum of one entry please - to keep things fair for those who may not have time to craft.

Just leave a comment on this post if you would like the chance to win today's prize.

OK, out of all the prizes you've shown us so far this is my absolute favourite! Adorable, funny, versatile - I could go on all day. Plus the song "Rockin Robin" has a fun memory for me, too complicated to go into but it reminds me of a friend and makes me smile.

Lady Joyful said...

Oh so cute! What a fab set. Yes please to the prize! I know several people who would love cards made with this... :)

Janis said...

I don't understand European Robins!!! lol... They look nothing like American Robins and for the longest time whenever I saw someone call an image a Robin on a card, I thought they were ignorant or just plain loony. THOSE AREN'T ROBINS!!! Then I realized that JANIS was the ignorant one!!! Hahahaha!!! Now I have another question abt European Robins, are they "winter" birds for you???? American Robins migrate out of my area in the fall and are considered harbingers of spring when they reappear. Okay...enough abt Robins!

Your card is adorable and so happy, but I am going to say "No, thank you" to this set and let it go to someone who understands these birds!! Ha.

What a fun little bird. Beautiful cas card.
Would love to win it.

Di said...

Hi Janis! The full name for our Robin is Robin Redbreast - although it's the male robin who sports the bright jumper :) They are here all year round and are very much associated with Winter and Christmas when they can become quite tame. We have one little beauty living in our back garden right now. But, they won't share their territory until the mating season in Spring. A jaunty little bird much loved by us British! xx

Lia said...
