Hello Crafty Friends!
Today I have a fun and easy way to use up your scrap cardstock pieces to create a fun background along with CUPPA LOVE die set from Spellbinders.
Here's the fun and BRIGHT card I made using up a few pieces of scrap along with some adhesive.
I started by cutting 1/4'"strips out of my collection of scrap cardstock pieces. I then applied Be Creative Adhesive sheet to the back of a piece of copy paper cut to 4.25"x 5.5". I then peeled of the release paper and started lining up my strips...really quick and easy! ;o) I started with the colors of the rainbow but lost a bit of the ROY G BIV order when I cut it down for my panel. BUT I still think it's fun and pretty! lol
I applied Candied Apple Distress Oxide to Bristol Smooth paper, straight from the pad, no blending tool and used that to die cut the cup from CUPPA LOVE. I then used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide applied to Bristol Smooth to die cut the Coffee portion from the die set as well. I adhered it all together and added some leaves and a little heart from the same set to complete my mug. Some little white gel pen highlights and some Nuvo Crystal Glaze applied to the coffee and heart finished it off...doesn't it look good enough to drink???
A sentiment from Art Impressions Latte Love Set stamped with Black Onyx Versafine Ink die cut with MFT- Fishtails completed my sentiment. I adhered the panel to black cardstock and applied it to my base card with fun foam. A natural hemp ribbon finished off my card.
So there we have it, a fun and realtively easy way to use up some scraps to get a BRIGHT background for your cards.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!
