Using up Scraps-Part 3

 Another great use for those scraps of patterned paper we all hoard is paper piecing. In these two cards  I stamped by image on the paper using Momento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I then fussy cut out the images to add them to my cards. For the Balloons I stamped each balloon on the background I created with Distress Oxide inks in Peacock Feathers and Broken China.  I then placed the pieces I had cut from patterned paper on the top of the balloons to give them some interest.  The sentiment and heart are from stamps from Simon Says Stamp while the balloons are From Verve. 

I also give you peek at another card I did with the shirts all pieced from paper for this one.

If you want more information feel free to watch the video below or go to my YouTube channel to check it out.

I am entering the balloon card above into the Creative Inspirations: January Challenge-Anything Goes. You can check out the challenges here.

Using Up Scraps Part 2

This week I wanted to focus again on using up those scraps of paper you have in those bins, files, etc.  Here is another couple of cards that use patterned paper to build a card sketch you can use over and over.

The sentiment from the starburst cards is by Papertrey Ink using Costal Cabana Ink by Stampin' Up!  The card bases and the patterned paper used on all cards is by Recollections.

I am submitting the Patterned Paper Panel card with the Happy Birthday Sentiment to the Just Us Girls Challenge:#469 Leftovers.

Below is the video of the making of these cards or you can see it over on my YouTube Channel.

Mani Thanks-Project

Here is a close look at the live event I posted earlier on Facebook. I loved how this turned out.

If you have design space you can make the project as well.

You can find the live event I did tonight turning this cut file into the cute card you see. Just head to my FaceBook page:

So I don't know about you but I get inspiration from everywhere. A lot of times when inspiration strikes I like to see if I can make the idea I have in my head work for a card or papercraft. Today I worked on a thank you card that would be great for girlfriends maybe paired with a nail polish or emory board. If you are a Cricut fan and would like to grab the link head on over to my Facebook Page.

Using Up Scraps

I am striking while the iron is hot!  Here is a video I shot today.  I focused on a method to help make cards using up all those scraps of patterned paper we have laying around.  Enjoy!

 I used some scraps of patterned paper from projects I worked on prior to the holiday.  I am trying my best to work through a 12 x 12 patterned paper pack from Recollections. I used Lawn Fawn Stamp for the sentiment paired along with a Papertrey Ink Die on this one.

Here is another card weaving paper like the first example but making the weave much tighter. I decided to put this weave behind a die cut heart.  I then added on the sentiment along with sequins by Lucy's Cards.

Couple of Cards and Happy New Year!

 Hello crafty friends!  Hope you have had a wonderful Holiday and will be celebrating the NewYear with those you love!

I have not posted in such a long time, but with the holiday I had some time off which means I had some time to create, take pictures, and upload to share with all of you.

These are totally simple cards.  But they got the creative juices flowing so I will be back soon with a couple of more cards.

The first card uses some patterned paper I had left from another project with some sparkly glitter washi tape to create a background.  I then added a couple of die cut mats.  I stamped the sentiment on the teal color and added the rest of the sentiment on a strip below it.  I then created a stitched heart using a die from some more patterned paper.

The second card uses a stamp to create the background. I used the color Rose red from Stampin up and would stamp then turn the paper using second generation stamping without reinking to get this awesome look.  I added layered washi on the top as well as the bottom to hide the imperfections.  I then added a die cut shape out of vellum with a stitched heart on top.  I added the sentiment to complete the card.

All stamps and dies are unbranded.

I hope to see you around soon.  Have a great New Year!
