Card Close Up

Scraps in the Backyard?

The newest challenge over at H2H is “In the Backyard”.  You could take that any number of ways, however most of us are using the Backyard Bliss paper packet!  It’s such a fun paper, and I have so many projects coming up for you guys in the next few days!  I can’t wait to show you!

Onto today’s project!  I totally forgot to take a photo of the scraps that I was working with, I wish I had, but I will have a process video for you, soon!  It shows what I started with!

ANYWAY . . . Everything that I used on this card was scraps!  (except the card base and envelope!)  I LOVE being able to use up all of my bits and pieces!  (especially when it turns out super cute!)

I had the torn up pieces left from the scrapbook workshop that is coming out, the stickers are from the sticker sheet, more pieces that didn’t make it into that workshop!  The flowers are all from the paper board compliments, that I used the Purple Blend Tri-Blend marker on.  And the kraft paper was the perfect width, I just had to trim the length!

This card went together really very quickly!  it took more time to color the flowers than it did to do the whole rest of the card!  You have to love it when it comes together super quickly!

I would LOVE to know what you think about this card!  And if you decide to play along with the H2H challenge this time!  (remember, it’s “In the Backyard” not “Scraps”!)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Until next time, be crafty!

Michelle's Signature

Have you torn any paper recently?

So, last week, when I was looking for inspiration for the Vintage Vibe challenge over at H2H, and I came across this Pin, and I KNEW that I wanted to use it as inspiration for this week’s challenge, Tearing Paper!

So, I am again using the Yesterday & Today Paper packet and the Dreams Take Flight stamp and die set for this card. I cut some white daisy cardstock to be 5 1/4″ long, and tore it to pieces, well, strips! Then I inked the sides and top of each piece with Espresso Ink. I cut a piece of printer paper to 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 (so that my card base would be 4 x 5 1/2 once closed, saving some cardstock for later!) I glued each piece to the printer paper, creating my background piece. I used Espresso cardstock as my card base today, because I wanted this slightly different fold.

I used foam tape to pop the plane off of the band, and glued the clouds directly to the card base, making sure that the cloud that hung off the edge did not have any glue on that part. I used the frame and sentiment from the same set, and glued that inside. I decided last second to add those little wooden arrows that I colored with the Earth Brown Blend Marker.

I really like how this card turned out! Hopefully you do as well! I would love to hear what you think! Please leave me a comment below, and let me know!

Until next time, make sure you go and play along with some of the challenges over at H2H!
