Jules Crafty Snippets wk 35

Good Evening All!

I hope you`ve all had a fabulous weekend. The weather here yesterday was glorious. We had sunshine...yes...sunshine and the temperature was in the mid 70`s. I really thought summer had returned.It spoilt itself again today though, cloud and the odd shower,definitely autumnal again. Which brings me nicely onto my first card for Jules Crafty Snippets.
Yes, I`ve been raiding the bit box again and this is what I`ve come up with...

I tend to stamp my images early in the week and then I can sit at the table downstairs and colour them whilst half watching half listening to the telly ( yes we`re still with the portable so it doesn`t matter if I`m not watching lol) Then I make up my cards on a weekend.
The snippets of DP are from Shabby Princess and the border is made using a snippet of card and a Spellbinders border die.
The sentiment label is made from the edge I cut off the main card base to make a square card.
The sentiment is from the Flourishes Zinnia`s set as are the flowers. This is a single flower that comes with the set and is coloured with promarkers and Marvy pens.
The leaves are made using a punch and a scrap of green card.

As threatened last week, my next card is a Christmas card.
I`ve used scraps of Pink Petticoat Large Snowflakes and a gorgeous piece from an Artilicious Seasons Greeting CD.
The stamps are by Judikins and were some of the first stamps I ever bought. I`m still in love with these gorgeous Angels and especially the peeking one. Just look at her feet and her halo has slipped lol.
Believe it or not this is my first time masking, how sad is that? Especially now I know how easy peasy it is to do, I`m slightly ashamed to admit that lol.
Anyway, back to my Angels, I`ve coloured them with Promarkers and added some Glamour Dust to their wings.
Their halo`s are glittered in gold.
I`ve cut the image out with a nestie circle and matted that onto a nestie scalloped circle in lilac.
I`ve added some sparkly lilac craft yarn and a sentiment by Creative Expressions cut out with a nestie labels 4 die.
I did make another card but I`m not too happy with it. I feel it is lacking something so might come back with that one another time.
Jules asked me a couple of weeks ago if my snippet pile was going down yet. Well the answer to that is...no, not so as you`d notice lol. In fact I have a sneaky feeling that it`s growing argh!!!
NB, the lace border on the first card is made using Spellbinders Grand Borderbilities Classic Lace Die.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

    What a fantastic border die you have used on the first one .. .. and a great colour combo.

    If it makes you feel any better I have only really got into masking in the last 6 months or so .. .. just blame it on being a "having time to try" thing!! LOL!!!

    Thank you for sharing your lovely snippet makes. Sorry the mountain hasn't reduced yet :-(

    Love Jules xx

  7. Hi Lynne . . . lovely cards here.

    I often colour stamped images in during my lunchbreak, which saves precious time at home in the evenings!
