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.

Nested Friends Anniversary Card – #FMS590

The Nested Friends stamp set didn’t have my heart at first glance. However, I liked the variety of sentiments in the set and ended up ordering it. I can tell you, I have got my money’s worth out of this set, especially with this bird, using it so many times.

I created a background for my card with Versamark ink which was heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Then I blended Misty Moonlight ink around the edges. Adding this to a card base which I applied the same technique of blending created depth for this tone on tone background.

My card was been inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. To form the strips I used the Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper. This is a great sketch to use up those scrap pieces of patterned paper or cardstock I know you have lying around.

This pack of 12″ x 12″ papers is a bumper pack with 48 sheets in it. Usually selling for $53, during our June Designer Series Paper sale you can get it for $45.05.

The bird was stamped in Daffodil Delight and I added some detail with Watercolor Pencils. I used Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Balmy Blue and Early Espresso.

The berries and leaves were die cut from Basic White Cardstock and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. Some extra shading was added with an Old Olive Watercolor Pencil. The smaller Soft Sea Foam die cut leaves were also individually highlighted the same way.

A small sentiment was added to flow in with the arrangement of sprigs whilst not detracting from the pretty paper.

Glitz it with Gilded Leafing

On last night’s Live I shared a card using this gorgeous palette. This design used up some of my scraps too.

I also showed how to use the Gilded Leafing which added a lovely opulent border to this card. Watch the video tutorial for tips on using this product. Don’t forget to like and subscribe to my YouTube Channel for more inspiration.

The sentiment was stamped in Evening Evergreen and I used Sweet Sorbet and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the stamp directly. Then I lightly went over the label with Crumb Cake ink to give it a vintage look.

Awash with Beauty Anniversary Card for #fms548

When it comes to a bit of fussy cutting, I’m up for the challenge. As soon as I saw this bouquet in the Awash with Beauty Designer Series Paper, it cried out to be fussy cut. So with my Paper Snips I took to creating this focal image for my card inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

I used some Crumb Cake Cardstock scraps I had to create a border along the DSP panel.

I die cut some Vellum stems and coloured the back with an Old Olive Stampin’ Blend along with some die cut Mossy Meadow berries.

A heat embossed sentiment from the Ringed with Nature stamp set on Merry Merlot adds a nice contrast against the flowers. When you purchase the Ringed with Nature bundle you will automatically qualify for a free product from our Sale-A-Bration promotion.

To coordinate with the natural look of the Crumb Cake Cardstock I added some Linen Thread which I wrapped around my fingers 3 times to create a loop and tucked in under the bouquet with some Tear n’ Tape adhesive.
