Hello Thursday! Today I have a couple of cards to share with you using my die-cuts and paper scraps and have made some mix & match embellishments...I love using up my paper scraps like this. My color palette consists of Melon Berry, Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush, Fine Linen, and Winter Wisteria. I used Papertrey Ink's Super Stars stamp set for the sentiment and tiny star and the A Little Argyle set across the bottom.
This first card uses the Seeing Stars die collection from Papertrey Ink along with bits of patterned paper including Winter Wisteria Gingham, Sweet Blush Gingham, Aqua Mist Polka Dot, and Melon Berry Bitty Dot.
All I did was run a stack of 3-4 papers through my die cut machine so that it would cut 4 stars from 4 different papers in one shot. I then trimmed each star apart and then pieced them back together mixing and matching the colors and patterns. A bit of washi tape on the back secured the pieces together and then I ran them through my sewing machine to add a bit of a homespun look. I added another layer to the stars by cutting a smaller star from vellum.
I used the same technique on this card, but used the Leaf Prints die instead.
I didn't adhere the leaves down completely, but just down the center so I could fold the edges upward in order to get a little dimension. Each leaf is topped with a Berry Sorbet button.
The sentiment on this card is from the Over Under Easy stamp set and is stamped in Melon Berry and Spring Moss.
Thanks for visiting. Hope your day is wonderful!
