HI there

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
