Jules crafty snippets # 31

Good afternoon all!
The weather here over the weekend was appalling and seems to be carrying on into the week too, but that meant I could spend lots of time in the craft room. Sunday is Jules crafty snippets day so I took the opportunity to have a good old rake about among my snippets and create some cards. I had some toppers already coloured so they didn`t take too long to put together.

First up is my fave Teddy stamp by Lili of the Valley,coloured in promarkers and Marvy Le Plume. He is stamped onto a snippet of white card and matted onto a snippet of bright pink card.
The DP is Pink Petticoat snippets and the sentiment, by Personal Impressions is stamped onto the strip cut from an A4 sheet to make the square card and cut out with a nestie labels 4 die.
I`ve added some bright pink spotty ribbon and a bow to finish.

Next is a new (to me) stamp by Flourishes called Lenten Rose, coloured in promarkers and cut out with a nestie labels 4 die. I cut another label the same size in yellow card, cut it in half and placed the label on top with just the edges of the yellow showing.
The DP is from that everlasting snippet pile from Papermania. The spotty paper is matted onto yellow card and I`ve punched along the bottom with a Fiskars punch.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set and is cut out with a nestie circle.

Finally I`ve gone CaS with this one.
The white panel on the front of the card is a snippet and I`ve run just over half of it through the Cuttlebug with the Candy Cane Stripes EF. The green check DP is a snippet from Papermania Capsule Collection and I`ve added a green ribbon before attaching it to the front of the card using foam pads.
The stamp is another new to me from Flourishes, this time I`ve used Zinnia`s. These are gorgeous because they come in an array of different colours so I think you`ll be seeing a lot more of this stamp set. I`ve coloured with Promarkers, cut out with a circle nestie and cut a lacey circle in matching green card ( another snippet) as a border.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set, again cut out with a circle nestie. I`ve finished off with a green bow.
Phew! It`s a pity meal times have to interfere with crafting, I could have gone on forever I think
