Creating with Scraps - Day 7

Welcome back to another day of Creating with Scraps.  Here we go:

This little birdie has been colored and tucked into my scrap bin back when I was on the smARTworks Design Team.  He comes from that company.  He used to have a big swirly tail but I cut it off for this card because he wouldn't fit.  Those 2 lables that he is standing on actually come from one of my Take 3 challenges, leftovers. 

And here are a few more of those leftover labels from a recent Take 3 challenge.  The colors were perfect to go with this little pink flower.  This flower comes from an old Stampin' Up! set.  I forget the name, but it was one of those sets that I "had to have" and have barely used!  That frustrates me so much.  I think I will add it as a set to use for my Take 3 challenges.  In the end, I quite like this CAS card. 

I think this was the 2nd card I created with my scrap stash.  I adore this color combination and when I had all the bits and pieces all poured out onto my craft table, these pieces just fell together.  When that happens it makes it easy to pull a card together.  4 more pieces of scrap added to a card!  Yeah!

Another really, really old piece of scrap.  See that background ... it is a napkin that I used ages ago to create a background.  There is some technique that I had used, can't remember exactly what it is right now, but I kept it all this time because I love the colors together.  Didn't take much else to finish off the card, a scrap oval die cut and a hand-cut flower that was created from one of those many circles that accumulate in my scrap bin. 

Well, just a few more days of sharing scrap cards left.  If you are still interested, drop back in tomorrow!

Love your use of the PTI label stamps, Donelda! I'm always wondering what to do with those other than wrap nuggets!

I love these scrap pile cards! I'm still sorting through my piles and piles (and piles) of stuff on my desk to find what's scrap and what's not. All in good time. All in good time. lol

Awesome cards. All of them are great, just some I like better than others like the first and third are my favorites. Love the colors on the third the!

You MUST have made a dent in your scrap stash by now, Donelda! Of course, now you have a huge stash of cards! Another great day of cards to admire.
