Here's my snippets make:
- A6 white card blank
- a snippet of SU's 'Bashful Blue' card to stamp the image and sentiment onto, using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink
- the stamp is by Woodware and is called 'Bethlehem'. Although it also lends itself to colouring, I had a plan - which is why I created some more snippets earlier in the week from LOTV's 'Krafty Christmas' paper pad, to do some paper piecing!
- just added a few touches of white in the sky using a white Signo pen and then mounted it onto a snippet of toning Core'dinations card before popping it onto the card blank
It looks a quick and simple card, it was the paper piecing that took
Onto this week's picks:
As always, I could pick every single one of your entries, but time is marching on.
So onto the winner of the Penny Black 'Duckie and Hedgies' stamp:
And, as Christmas is almost here, I'm trying to ensure that in the New Year we revert to non-Christmas goodies as prizes. So over the coming two weeks we have three Woodware Christmas stamps on offer, all as one prize - even if you don't manage to use them for this Christmas I think they'd make a good start for next year's cards:
Jules won't mind, this is the fabulous snippets card she made a while back using the same stamp and paper piecing:
Beautiful isn't it?!
NB. The snippets challenge will run for two weeks and the Playground gates will close at 11am UK time on Saturday 28th December and will open again at midnight UK time on the same day. Maximum of six entries over the two weeks and please say 'No thank you' in a comment if you wish to still play but not be the winner of the prize. Now, some of you might already have one or more of the stamps (like Jules for example), or perhaps you might only fancy one of them - if so please do say and if you win I can do a second draw with whatever is left.
Mr Linky is below - please let me know if you have any problems linking, I can sort it out for you quite quickly and am always happy to do so.
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas! Gotta go, I can hear somone shouting something about the chestnut brazier being in danger of setting fire to the Playground bike shed - our Scallywag Sam is just giggling and trying to text me the news whilst Sarn is at least rushing round with her fire warden hat on shouting for fire buckets and a relay team to use up the duck pond water! The ducks have scarpered!! I despair, really I do.
Di - and of course Parsnip
