All snippets!

Good Afternoon to You!

My card today was made with nothing but snippets excepts for the gems and the sentiment .

I'm really on a mission to use stuff up this year.  Last year I hardly made a dent although I did try.

This card used up the rose paper which I decided to distress and rub with black soot distress ink.

The image is an old Judikins cube stamp which was stamped onto the pink paper and barely had to be trimmed at all and the diecut image was already cut.  I think it's a Memory Box die but it hasn't been used for a long time.

This card is certainly one to be taken over to Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 214

Love your snippets card and well done for using up some bits and pieces - they breed I'm sure because I try to use oddments all the time but always finish with more than I start with!! I remember those cube stamps and have a couple lurking around somewhere - what are we like??

What a fabulous card Barb - love the Judikins stamp too! I possess just one of their stamps and they're so distinctive aren't they.

Your die is the Memory Box 'Chloe Stem' BTW. I keep forgetting just how lovely that die is - and such a good idea to tuck it behind the image!

Hugs

Hi Barb,
what a great snippets card.
oooooooooo! another blast from the past with Judikins stamp block.
I remember her demoing them, or was it her daughters.
Still their demos were very good.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Another cracker Barb. I must try and join this snippets challenge as I seem to also be doing a lot of this style.
Great layering.

Hugs Erika. x

Fabulous card, Barb. I'm so impressed that you made it completely from snippets ... you had to tell me for me to know :) Elizabeth xx

Wonderful use of snippets, Barb!

Liz said...

I absolutely love this card! Florence was at the top of my list of places to visit for over 20 years, then my daughter took me there for a surprise holiday for my 60th birthday. We climbed the the tower you can see in the image and had a fantastic view of the domed roof and the whole of Florence. It really is the most amazing city. xx

Dana & Glen said...

Oh lovely card Barb! Good for you to use what you already have, I need to get better at that :)

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Good job using up the bits and pieces! I agree that we try and try but it never seems to make a dent.

Greta said...

Beautiful rose paper & looks great with that neat JudiKins stamp! I always loved their stamps, but haven't used mine in a long time.

SARN said...

Super looking vintage style card Barb. I'm on a mission with you. Definitely trying to use up some of my papers this year!

And pick out old stamps to play with!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Barb said...

It's somewhere I've wanted to go for a long time so we're going this year for our Big Birthdays. I can't see me climbing too many steps unfortunately. xx

Pat said...

What a pretty card Barb and the background roses look wonderful with that lovely Florentine scene and the die is perfectly positioned behind it. I have never been but hope to go some day. I hope you have a fabulous time when you go. x
