Use up your Paper Scraps – Countryside Inn

Most avid crafters have endless amounts of paper and cardstock scrap and I’m sure you have a collection as well. This card has been designed around scraps and is great for us hoarders who can’t throw away any of those little bits of beautiful Designer Series Paper.

My card has been inspired by two challenges. I’ve picked scraps and strips from the Just Add Ink JAI658- Just Choose Two challenge. The strips were perfect for the sketch at the Paper Players PP646 challenge.

I took a piece of Basic White Cardstock slightly larger than the size of the banner. Then I adhered several strips of the Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper strips across it and die cut it with the largest banner from the Nested Essentials dies. I really love the patchwork effect this gives.

For some extra strips and in-keeping with the sketch I took some scrap Basic White Cardstock cut to 1.5 cm. I blended these with Boho Blue ink and stamped over them with the large watercolour look image from the Artistically Inked stamp set. This gave it a lovely textured look.

The Stampin’ Up! June Creative Challenge is to use Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends. I used the Blends to colour in the Punched out hearts and this provided a nice contrast against the blues.

I hope this inspires you to get creative with your scraps and find some fun ways to bring new life to them.

You can get this Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper on sale until 30th June. This is my favourite in the Annual Catalogue. The blues just work so well together.
