GDT Card for Use Your Stuff Challenge - Out With the Old

 


It's time for another challenge on the Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog and it's out with the old!

So this time we're looking for a project using scraps or leftover bits from previous projects.

Head over to the challenge blog here for more information and to see the cards from the Design Team.

I used a piece of leftover Stampin' Up patterned paper to make my card - I used both sides to create the background.  I simply cut some strips from the paper and matted them on to a piece of Mossy Meadow card also from Stampin' Up.

My sentiment is from the Stampin' Up Happiest of Birthdays stamp set and the scalloped die is also a Stampin' Up one.

Inspiration Card for The Little Paper Tree - Beautiful Day Stamp Set

 


I'm back today with another card using the Beautiful Day stamp set from Catherine Pooler Designs:


You can find the both the stamp and coordinating die sets here on the online shop.

For today's card I stamped the main image at an angle along the long edge of a piece of white card measuring 13 cm by 9cm.  Then I stamped one of the flowers again beside the first image to create a line of flowers along the whole edge of the piece of card.

The stamp set also has a smaller foliage stamp which I used to add to the flowers and leaves - it was easy to extend the stem with a black marker.

I coloured the flowers using Promarkers and then stamped one of the sentiments underneath and added two black gems to finish the card.

Don't forget to head over to the store here for a great range of stamps, dies and accessories.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
