SCRAPS HAPPEN!!!

SCRAPS HAPPEN

Any self-respecting paper hoarder can tell you there is one certainty in life… If you have spent any time paper crafting; you know the one undeniable truth is SCRAPS HAPPEN!

Every card – every project – every cut you make eats away at your once beautifully whole piece of paper while your stack of remnants grows bigger and bigger with each snip!

When dealing with those remnants (aka SCRAPS) the question of how small is too small to keep is a personal one…

The cards I’d like to share with you today will help use up those SCRAPS… but you don’t have to wait for scraps to make these.

Cut Designer Series Paper into strips of various widths – you want them slightly longer than the base paper you are putting them on – you can make your strips all straight cuts or triangles. You are only limited by your imagination – stick your strips to a base sheet of cardstock and you have now transformed your SCRAPS into a beautiful project!


Here are some more cards that use scraps.   Have fun!

Magnolia Mother of Pearl Card


Magnolia Mother of Pearl Card


Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do with a new product. Searching the web and then coming up short…I did this with the Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper. After searching, I decided to go back to one of my favorite cards made with basic white cardstock and blending brushes.

 

Other ways I have found for using this paper, as a background, whether that is using die cuts or as a filler – circle, Square, Rainbow! You can also stamp on it but use your Stazon ink and heat set. Let it sit for a few minutes afterward.

 

Here is my card and tutorial…ENJOY!

 

Supplies:

 

Cardstock:

Highland Heather c/s – 5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼”

A scrap of Gorgeous Grape

Gorgeous Grape – 4” x 5 ¼”

Basic White – 3 ¾” x 5”

 

Stamp set:

Timeless Tulips

Tulip Fields

 

Ink:

Gorgeous Grape

Coastal Cabana

Versa Mark

 

Accessories:

Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper 4” x 5 ¼”

Blending Brushes

Pastel Pearls

Take your Pick Tool

Magnolia Embossing Folder

Meadow Dies

Dimensionals

White embossing powder

Heat gun

Mono Liquid glue

 

Let’s get started:

 

· Take our Highland Heather base and fold it in half

· Put your Mother of Pearl in the Magnolia Embossing Folder and run it through the Stampin Cut and Embossing machine

 


 


· Ink the Blending brushes, stamp off or rub some of the ink off before using the Gorgeous Grape on the flower and the Coastal Cabana on the leaves and around the flower. You will have to heat set the ink.

· Adhere to the Highland Heather card base. I used mono liquid glue

· On a scrap of Gorgeous Grape, stamp the sentiment in Versa Mark and add White Embossing powder on top. Tap off the extra powder and heat set it






· Take the Meadow Dies and put it around the sentiment. Run it through the Stampin Cut and Embossing machine

· Add 3 Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and place it in the middle of the card

· Add three Pastel Pearls to the card…I used the dark purple pearls


· On the inside of the card, add the Gorgeous Grape to Highland Heather. Stamp the border flowers in Coastal Cabana at the bottom of the card. Adhere it to the Gorgeous Grape c/s.


· Emboss the flap of the envelope with the Magnolia Embossing Folder. Without reinking, your blending brushes, use the ink from them to color the Magnolia flower


· Voila, you are done!


The Mother of Pearl and the Magnolia Embossing Folder is retiring.   Don't wait, contact me to place an order or go to my online store and order these supplies ASAP!
