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!
