Sunday Snippets

Evening Everyone,

After a very quiet day, doing not much all, I finally got my mojo on and dipped into the catch-all box again to create two cards. Surprisingly yellow cards too ... I think it's well documented on this blog that yellow is my least favourite colour. I also managed to use up a bunch of snippets for Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 189. It's always a bonus when the snippet mountain is reduced, even by a little.
For this card I've used one of the NBUS twinchie stamps that came free with an issue of Craft Stamper magazine, coloured using watercolours. The background is a scrap from a Gelli plate print - created some time last year! A scrap of orange card, some very old ribbon, butterflies decorated with Stickles and amber dew drops make up the rest of the materials on this card.  Apart from the colouring of the stamp this was a super quick card to make.
This card was even quicker to make. The topper is recycled from a bought card I received last year. I like the image so much that I trimmed it down and saved it. The yellow textured card, left over from a project, was the perfect match. Some orange cardstock, amber dew drops and a polka dot flower were all that was needed to complete the card.

And that is that for this evening. I'm off to have a cuppa with the EM and watch David Walliums get up to some jolly japes as an amateur detective.

I hope you are all having a very enjoyable evening.

Two beautiful summery cards Elizabeth. I like the pretty background print in the first one and the stripy ribbon that matches it so well.The saved image in the second one is lovely too, I can see why you kept it and it has made a beautiful card.

Two really sunshiny cards Elizabeth! I do love the stamp you used on the first one - the week VW camper almost seems to have a face :) Lovely work!
