Homework for Snippets Playground

Hello and welcome! 

I've been a bit under the weather and took a break from sorting and organizing in the kitchen so I decided to enter Snippet's Playground's with a homework assignment instead. I don't mind homework when it means coloring, playing with scissors and making something cute :) So here is my card.

As part of the homework assignment we were to take a photo of our snippets. Below I had selected a few strips from one of my huge bags of patterned paper snippets, but I didn't end up using all. I also used the white card stock with the clouds stenciled, I had messed up the stenciling on a previous project but it's perfect for the little mouse which will be fussy cut. 

I wanted to use a selection of different paper strips to follow this week's My Favorite Things sketch.

The little mouse with cupcake is from Penny Black set Loads of Love, it was released some years ago but still a favorite. After stamping with Memento Tuxedo ink I used my Copic markers for coloring then fussy cut. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Itty Bitty Basics. I thought the card needed something a little extra so I added the tiny hearts and used Stardust Stickles glitter glue for some sparkle.

  1. What a sweet card Ellie (pun intended) Love how you have interpreted the sketch, as well as using lots of snippets.

  2. If your weather is anything like ours Ellie it makes you fee a bit under par, but your card is delightful with the pretty pinks and sweet PB critter. Lovely to see you at Stamping Sensations, thank you, also pleased you've found the Playground.
