Snippets and More

I'm back already.... and with a trio, which were all made with snippets.

I used rainbow colours and all Uniko goodies on my first card - NBUS stencil 'broken lines' on the background, stamps from the 'flower power' sets and the spots are from the 'background builders round in circles' set.

This is for the following challenges

Uniko Studio challenge 'spots & stripes + additional twist use a stencil'

NBUS challenge 'use your NBUS'

Allsorts challenge 'something old. something new'

Stamping Sensations challenge 'somewhere over the rainbow'

TGIF Color challenge 'rainbow'

Next I made something a little different..... I was looking at a snippet of glitter paper, a unicorn and die-cut cloud left over from other projects, and the bits left from the snowdrift die I used in my last snippets make... then Mojo gave me a nudge and I had one of those rare moments of inspiration and made a fridge magnet. Luckily I'd just bought some sticky backed magnet sheets as I use them for storing my dies on.

This is heading over to

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use your snippets'

Country View challenge 'animal magic'

So while I was in a creative mood I decided to have a play with another Uniko stamp 'hello lovely' coloured with Promarkers. A snippet of paper and a piece of lace and another card made!

I made this for

Passion for Promarkers challenge 'lace and flowers'

.....and to finish with I thought you might like to see a photo of my Little Miss Cutie Pie playing in her tent with the caterpillars she made sat outside.... and yes that is her crafting mat on the floor in the background.

Thank you for popping by today and I hope wherever you are and whatever you're doing that you are safe and well

Lovely trio Andrea. Love the Uniko cards...I have a lot of Uniko products that sadly haven't had enough use...must rectify! Love Cutie Pie's caterpillars..guess it's a good job she is not nearby as you have a rival for your talent there! Hugs xx

Vicky Hayes said...

My goodness, all so gorgeous Andrea! Love your dotty and stripy card - those flowers are perfect for the challenge aren't they! What a brilliant idea to turn your unicorn into a fridge magnet (and I'm thinking that Little Miss Cutie Pie probably approves!) I love the way you coloured the beautiful Uniko floral stamp too, very delicately - it's just stunning. That looks like a very happy game with the tent and the caterpillars! Vicky x

Sarah said...
