And Yet Another

Here is another of those cards I gave my friend.

This is another card made from snippets. The card base is made with a heavy weight sheet of  12x12 wood grain paper that I cut in half to make two cards. The dotted paper is VOS  (very old stash). It is ten years old or maybe even more, as it was a snippet from a scrapbook I made of Little Miss C when she was a toddler.

The tree, flowers, scalloped mat, banner and sentiment tag were all cut from snippets quite some time ago. I like to do things like this with snippets and file them away for future use.


I used a pre coloured image (Hobby House methinks...but not sure) and highlighted it with a clear Wink Of Stella pen. I added a little WOS to the flower petals too. A few teensy diamonds on the flowers and this card was done!

Since there are so many snippets on this card, I am taking it over to Di's challenge, Pixies Crafty Workshop.

Recipe:

Card - hand cut from a heavy weight 12x12 VOS scrapbook page in my stash
DP - snippet of 12x12 DP so VOS that I do not remember the manufacturer
Card Stock - snippets of pink and kraft card from my stash
Die Cuts - Memory Box tree and banner; Impression Obsession tag; Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle.
Punch - Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch
Image - from my stash...I think it is a Hobby House image
Sentiment stamps - tiny acrylic alphabet stamps from my stash
Bling - diamonds from my stash
Glimmer - Wink Of Stella pen

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets.

This is a beautiful summertime card, Mo! I'm so impressed at the VOX and snippets you used! I'm also impressed that you actually go back and REACH for the UCBs and use them on a card, sigh! I need to get another hamster and just station him at the UCB box with a trumpet!

I'm so glad that the reno is nearing an end! You must be pickled tink to see the light at the end of the tunnel!! Hugs, Darnell
