Cricut Drawn Background for the Win

Letting my Cricut Explore do all the work again with this card.  The background is drawn with mint and pink pens.  I then added the sentiment from letters I still had in my stash from another Cricut cutting session. A few gems for sparkle round off the card.

Simple hi

This is a card that is so simple but lovely.  If I could draw this something I would attempt. Luckily my Cricut Explore can do all the drawing for me.  I created this in Design Space then colored the image with Copic markers. I added to a card base made with pink Recollections cardstock.

Sometimes simple is best.  A few colored strips with a sentiment. Clean and simple. Remember this type of card when you need to use up scraps of cardstock

 I am back with the last card using an old Technique Tuesday border stamp in my stash. This one I used to make a background. Click on the video above or head on over to my YouTube channel to watch. Love how this turned out. I used a monochromatic color scheme with different shades of blue Recollections Cardstock in my stash. The image was embossed on each strip with white embossing powder. The doily and die cut elements really bring the look together. Hope you find some inspiration that leads you to play with your crafty stash today.

Simple Card using Washi

Love making cute "paper" with my washi stash.  All that was left was the sentiment with a few glitter epoxy stickers from Dollartree.  A quick card that can be mass produced if needed.

Using up a few Cardstock Scraps

I had those bright still out on my desk.  I recreated a card I made recently but with some slight changes. You can see that version on my Instagram feed.  Love the gold embossing powder on black.  So elegant.  How do you tend to use your scraps of cardstock?
