Sorry for the little break in posting. I haven’t been doing much blogging – but I have been making lots of cards over the last few weeks so stay tuned. I will try and find some time to show them to you soon.
You’ve probably figured out from this blog that a) I have quite the stash of pretty paper I’ve collected over the years and b) I’m trying to figure out ways to use it all up! I’ve been setting myself a bit of a challenge lately of pulling out an old packet of DSP and trying to randomly pick a piece of paper and then trying to make some cards out of it.
Here’s an example. I picked a piece of old DSP from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Haiku. Here’s the result:
The card on the left uses the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches with some rhinestone ‘bling’ as an embellishment. Also note the horizontal lines from sticking 2 extra strips of card stock I had left over.
The card on the right is quite simple – but the scallop edge border punch gives it a bit of extra ‘something’ as do the rhinestones at the centre of each flower.
These were really simple to make – and used up a piece of paper in about 5 mins. Nice!
I’ll try and post some more soon
Thanks for reading
