Scraps of Paper

Hi guys. I have another card to showcase using the Stampin Up "Thoughts and Prayers" set. Have I mentioned that I LOVE this stamp set?!!! LOL

I'm trying to use up some scraps of designer paper from my stash...so I tried to incorporate some designer paper into my card. It turned out well, I think.



I stamped the cross image on some white cardstock and fussy-cut around it. Then put it on some dimensionals. I also stamped the sentiment on some vellum paper and put it over the cross. I love the look of vellum on cards! And this is a great way to clean up vellum scraps as well. :)

I used a  double edge border punch from Martha Stewart called " Doily Border" and added some bling to the center of the flowers. Sweet and Simple card. :)

Paint Chips for a Card

Let's think outside the box for a moment. Paint Chips... who says they're just to look at? Why not USE them instead of throwing them away??? Recycle!!! :)

So that's what I did...after all, it's perfectly good paper going to waste otherwise....

I simply cut out some squares with three of the coordinating greens...





stamped an image on them...




and created a card...



I absolutely love it!!! Paint Chips have taken on a whole new meaning with me!!! :)
