Going Green and Making the Most of My Scraps...

I made 4 cards tonight all designed around scrap pieces that I had laying on my craft table left over from other cards. I was fixin to throw the scraps away and clean up but then decided I should see what I could make out of them. 4 cards after a full day at work, that might actually be a record for me on a work night. Woo Hoo!

Here's a Sugar Coated Bday Card:

Recipe: Stamps- Cupcakes wheel, Crazy for Cupcakes; Paper- Lovely Lilac, Whisper White, Basic Black; Ink- Lovely Lilac, Basic Black; Scallop Circle Punch, Scallop Edge Punch; Markers: Pretty in Pink, Only Orange, So Saffron, Yoyo Yellow, Gable Green, Bashful Blue, Lavender Lace, Rose Red, Dimensionals, covered the entire background in Dazzling Diamonds and Tombow Multi Adhesive
Finally used my Flight of the Butterfly Stamp Set that I was dying to have but never even mounted. (I collect any set with butterflies!)

Recipe: Stamps- Flight of the Butterfly; Paper- Baja Breeze Cardstock, Bella Rose DSP, Whisper White Cardstock; Ink- Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Versamark; Baja Breeze Doublestitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds, 2- Way Glue Pen, (misc. Rhinestone Stickers), stampin sponges.
Here are two cards using scraps and the Sale-A-Bration set Polkadot Punches-

Recipe: Stamps- Polkadot Punches, Flight of the Butterfly, Love You Much; Paper- Pretty In Pink scrap negative from using the Swirly die in my Big Shot, Close to Cocoa, Bella Rose DSP, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette; Ink- Whisper White Craft Ink, Versamark, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, 2 Way Glue Pen, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, White Embossing Powder
I am very partial to the pink pirouette, rose red, close to cocoa color combination, so I used those scraps and came up with this-


Recipe: Stamps- Polkadot Punches, Bella Toile Background Stamp, Best Yet Hostess Level 1 retired; Paper- Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa, Bella Rose DSP, Rose Red; Ink- Rose Red Ink , Whisper White Craft Ink, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder
What are you waiting for...get cracking and use those scraps...it is sorta like recycling and that is good for the environment, right?...do your part. ;0)
