Off cuts

Hey there world,

Do you have a bunch of scrap pieces of paper?  Do you shove them all in a box but never seem to use them up?  ME TOO.

I was tired of having half a sheet of this and only a scrap of that leftover, so I tried my best to create some cards using them up.  I added in the use of some Stampin up stamps, namely flowering fields and timeless textures, and an odd scroll stamp from my stash and hey presto, a bunch of cards to sell on etsy.  Think I will make up packs of cards with a selection of my makes in them.  That way there are no 2 cards the same in each pack, which means something for every occassion hopefully.

The images were coloured in watercolours, and I added some silver thread and red flatback pearls to add a bit of interest to the cards.

Not the greatest of pictures, but I love the rolled wallpaper effect on this card, it really did use up some scraps:)

I do believe that the papers I used are from a collection called ” On the bright side” by My Minds Eye.  Not sure if its still available, as I was given it a few years ago for christmas. But if you can’t buy it anymore don’t despair, just get creative with what you have already,

Think they turned out quite well, until next time.Carry on crafting xx
