Using Paper Scraps to create your Cards

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love the decorative papers that Stampin’ UP! has for us to use and just cannot bear to waste any of it if I can help it. I recently was cutting papers from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper for a project and had a whole bunch of pieces left, some of them as small as 1 3/8 x 1!

I chose a couple of the colors from the paper, in this case Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz and created a whole bunch of ‘Thank You’ cards which I sent out to the lovely people who chose to shop for the SU goodies with me in September.

  • Base Card: 11 x 4 1/4 Flirty Flamingo Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2
  • Layer 1: 1 1/2 x 1/2 DSP layered onto 1 5/8 x 1 5/8 Pear Pizzazz Card
  • Layer 2: 3 1/2 x 1 1/2 DSP layered onto 3 5/8 x 1 5/8 Pear Pizzazz Card
  • Layer 3: 1 3/8 x 1 DSP layered onto 1 1/2 x 1 1/8 Pear Pizzazz Card
  • Ink Color: Early Expresso

I used the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set for my greeting, simply stamped directly onto the card base. A trio of the elegant gold Metallic Pearls and we have a beautiful card.

You can create these cards with any scraps you have in your stash, simply choose a couple of the colors from the decorative paper (DSP), then cut layer about 1/8 or 1/4 larger than each of your scraps. I use Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to attach the dsp to the card layer, then attach to card base with Liquid Adhesive and Stampin Dimensionals.

Remember we have the special deal of 15% discount on some of the DSP’s check here for the skinny on this great deal!
