Snippety pumpkins

Hello, crafting friends!
Today is an autumn day and I've enjoyed walking in the sunshine with my fluffy girl, admiring the scudding clouds and the gorgeous colours of the changing leaves. I cleared my desk a little today too and realised it is also a day for using up some snippets! 

In the course of playing with my new nesting arch dies I seem to have made quite a lot of arch-type snippets. Well, waste not, want not as they say! I sponged my snippets with inks and glued the green frame to the arched background.

The pumpkin garland is from Lanterns by Reverse Confetti. It was stamped on another offcut using pale yellow ink, and I had fun colouring it with coloured pencils and fussy cutting it. When it was finished, I glued it to the frame. The sentiment is from the Arched Sentiments set from the Greetery, cut out with the coordinating die.

Before attaching my topper to the card base, I did a little soft stenciling on the card front using the Brick Wall stencil from Funky Fossil. Here are the snippets I used, plus another white offcut for the sentiment which I forgot to include (ie didn't plan for lol!)

I'm joining in with The Snippet Playground where the requirement is to make a card with snippets and include a photo of the snippets or list them; I'm also linking up at Happy Little Stampers Die challenge and Happy Little Stampers Stencil challenge where Anything Goes; and Try it on Tuesday where the theme is Autumn. 

Our pets are such good company aren't they. Every day, Eva and I spend our days together and I suppose it's only natural that I should talk to her. This week I found myself telling her what a lovely little sausage roll she is, "And I mean that in the nicest possible way," I said.

Sending hugs,


  1. That brick wall stencil is a perfect accompaniment to your snippets .The pumpkin die is such a fantastic match with your arch and so beautifully coloured.Haven't had a sausage roll for years so thank s for that as now I am craving one.


  2. I can understand why you love these dies,they are a gorgeous shape and perfect for showcasing the pumpkin garland and thank you sentiment

  3. Fabulous use of your arched snippets on this colourful autumnal card.

    Thanks for coming to play in the Snippets Playground. Meet me in the treehouse after your morning walk & I’ll make you a nice warming cup of hot chocolate.

    I’m sure Eva appreciated your sausage roll compliment!!! Xxx

  5. You show autumn from its most beautiful side. Beautiful and with so many lovely details. Maybe you would like to show your card at DotMCC as well. Our theme: Carve a pumpkin day. But we love every pumpkin!! LG Gundi

  6. Wonderful snippets card Vicky! So pretty - just perfectly sums up Autumn as well. Giggled about you calling Eva your 'sausage roll' - I do call Dudley 'sausage quite' often - without a golden pastry case :)
