A Scrap Card

Good evening all! I'm so happy to have my internet working again! Yeah!!! I had a cute card to post on Thursday evening but couldn't even connect to the internet. The issue had been going on all week & finally failed completely. Evidently, they got it fixed on Friday while we were away. I'm so glad.

I made this "scrap card" on Thursday at the store during my lunch. I call it a scrap card because I sorted through the paper scraps for all the papers that I used. I used a cute Hero Arts stamp set called "From our Home". I stamped the bridhouse & bird on the back side of Bazzil paper because it's smoother for stamping. I used the Ranger white pigment pen to color the house. I stamped the image again on a scrap of white paper. I colored the bird with colored pencils & cut it out. I mounted it over the bird on the house using a tiny bit of foam tape. I cut around the house at odd angles. Then I cut a piece of red cardstock randomly & a striped mat to layer onto a piece of white card stock. I stamped the verse with Black Onyx Versafine. I added a red gingham ribbon & adhered it to a blue card. Voila! a quick note card. I challenge you to dig through your paper scraps for some coordinating pieces, find a set of stamps you like & make a scrap card.

Until next time.......keep stamping.
