Using my Snippets!
I have been trying to think in a different way and when I cut a die, I think about where I place it so I do not waste the negative piece. Here is an example of what I mean. When I went to cut the octopus, I made sure I could cut a card front with it in the corner. I used a digital sentiment on the first card and on the second I used the negative..... (shhhh, it's my son's BD card).
I have this great pewter metallic card stock and some embossed dot scraps, and lime green scraps, I found in my bin. The little fish are snippets punched with a fantastic punch my dear friend Carol owns. I sure wish I could find one of those. What a great way to use up bits! My first card has a cut out from a Gina Marie stitched square die.
There is the fun octopus die and fish dies on the son card ... just a wee bit different than the punches. They are from Memory box, and I think they make great masculine cards, when you need that little extra something to add. I also found a roll of this cool Washi tape on a recent trip to Tuesday Mornings. Been trying to use that more, also. I decided to use the coral stamp out of the SU! set called By the Tide stamped with Unicorn White ink by Hero Arts.
Well I sure hope you like these. I will be taking them over to Pixie's Snippets Playground # 275 and 276, where you must use snippets on your creation. Also to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is Anything Goes, this week.
Thanks for the visit. My Grandson is visiting this weekend, so I had to sneak in here to do a quick post. He is such a love!
