Hello and thanks for stopping by! I was in a mood to use my paper scraps again. My old square paper punch was out of whack so I purchased a new one and put it to use cutting squares from leftover colorful gel press scraps. I LOVE this bold rainbow hued look! I die cut an extra large sentiment: Altenew’s Mega Hello to finish the card.
Summer technically just ended but I have one more card with the summery colors I love. I had a scrap of striped background left from a card I made a few weeks ago that was too pretty to throw away so I made it into a card for Watercooler Wednesday\’s Anything Goes Challenge. I think bright and happy always works for birthdays. The background uses the same colors as the striped panel.
Here is a link if you would like to see the original card I made with the watercolor panel.
Do you ever have a leftover scrap that you just love? That is how this card came to be….I made a pretty background (link to card here) and had a bit left so that was the starting point for this creation. I thought it was a pretty feminine card so I selected it to be my design team card for this week\’s Watercooler Wednesday \”Feminine\” Challenge.
I added a bold floral focal point, heat embossed a sentiment, created a layered look with foam tape and added a couple of embellishments from my scrapbooking days.
Hello and welcome! This week it is all about occasion cards at The Watercooler Wednesday challenge website and Tristan is our talented hostess.
I had some lovely left over alcohol ink scraps that I wanted to use on a background. I trimmed the pieces to a variety of widths and then pieced them together to make a solid background. Blue, aqua and lime is a favorite color combination of mine. My original intent was to cover the background with a circle die cut panel and sentiment, but I thought that looked a little plain so I added some interest with Simon Says Stamp\’s wonderful Outline Clustered Leaves die. I cut the leaves from some Recollections embossed paper. I like the end result and gave this card to one of my girlfriends. I am entering this card in the following challenges: Addicted To Stamps – Make Your Mark
Hello and welcome! The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge is changing things up during the holidays and we have a three week \”Anything Goes\” challenge. Marsha is our special hostess.
I ordered this adorable Simon Says Stamp Li\’l Gnome die this year and went a little crazy. I made 18 gnomes to put on tags and Christmas cards. I really like this \”glitter\” gnome.
I took a sheet of Ranger Ink Silver Sparkle Cardstock and added alcohol ink. The panel was very pretty. I then die cut the gnome. The beard and nose are cut from leftover scraps from previous ink smooshing projects. I love how the blond beard has orange streaks.
For the background I used a scrap of Lawn Fawn\’s Perfectly Plaid paper. I also die cut a rectangle to act as a backdrop for the gnome. I felt like it looked like a plaid belt with a big white buckle.
I had a collection of colorful alcohol ink scraps on Yupo paper left over from a batch of cards I made this summer. I thought the scraps would be fun to inlay into Sunny Studio\’s Frilly Frame cover die.
I first die cut my white panel and then cut the rainbow alcohol ink inlay pieces. After everything was die cut, I glued the cover panel to an A2 card. I put a line of Gina K Connect glue in each open space and then placed my alcohol ink scraps into each slat. I love how bright and glossy the strips are. I black heat embossed the sentiment (Hello Bluebird Rainbow Script) on a die cut sentiment strip. Since my card used rainbow colored scraps, I thought the sentiment was very appropriate. Easy, bright and eye-catching. I am entering this card in: Use Your Stuff\’s \”Use Your Scraps\” Challenge I am so pleased that you stopped by! Karen
Good Morning and Hello! I\’ve been wanting to make a card with the scraps leftover from my alcohol ink projects and I thought Yellow Sunshine by Papertrey Ink would be perfect!
I selected scraps of my favorite summertime hues and die cut a bunch. I also die-cut a coordinating sentiment and then worked on my layout. I cut a negative die for another card and used that as my template to place all the little tear drops.
This card was a lot of fun to make and I like that I was able to upcycle some beautiful scraps.
