Snippety splits!

Hello crafting pals!

I've been busy using up some of the left over snippets and am feeling quite smug! Here's what I made today:


You may recognise some of the essentials from this card (scroll down past challenge image) but it's taken on quite a different look hasn't it?! I'd stamped and fussy cut far too many of those pretty flowers (from Stampin' Up's Soft Spring) and it would have been a shame to waste them. I even rescued a ruined card base, sticking an off-cut of Pink Pirouette card stock to the front.


Do you like the split in the front? I was inspired As You See It, where the latest challenge is called Split Decision and this is the sketch:


I flipped the sketch, angled the horizontal element a little and took the split part of the title literally, stamping an old Clearly Besotted sentiment in the gap. The edges were finished off with a scored line.

The best part of using all those snippets, of course, is that I'll be able to skip over to Pixie's Snippet Playground where I'll be able to say hello to the playmates and Miss after a long time away. Will bring Eva with me - nothing in the Rools about whether we're allowed big floofy puppers with us and Eva wants to just CHECK to see if anyone has any snax she can share and also say a gentle hello to Dudley!


Thanks for rootling about here today and I hope to see you again soon!

Hugs,

  3. Oh, how very sweet! My snippet box is overflowing so I've liked seeing what you did with some of yours. The flowers are gorgeous - and, yes - far too lovely to waste. I like your interpretation of the sketch too. Great card, Vicky. Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It!

  6. Oh my! I'm so excited that you've returned to blogging. I loved reading your blog, and we met once a very long time ago at convention in Manchester. Off to see your other posts. Love your card... you inspire me to do less... which is hard as I'm a more is more kinda gal. Anyway, welcome back and thank you.

  7. Hi Vicky - first of all I do so love this pretty card - great use of snippets as well. I'm so glad you're blogging again and also that you came back to the Playground. Eva looks just gorgeous and of course she's welcome to come and play at anytime. We always have treat handy - Dudley can hear the rustle of a packet from the other end of the house! Do please come back again.

    Hugs

    Di xx

  8. Hi, Vicky, I love a card that uses up bits and pieces of left-overs! I have too many that never get used! I like the scored edges to give your split a sophisticated look! Thanks for playing along with our sketch challenge at As You See It Challenges!

  9. This is the perfect way to use up those snippets Vicky - I have a box of these and always feel guilty for adding to it and not taking away. Love the jaunty angle too!
