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!

SCRAP N' STAMP~ A Song in my Heart

Happy Thursday crafty friends! Today, we have a fun little blog hop for

 PLUS there's a challenge over at the SCRAP N' STAMP FB Group- the theme is LOVE IS IN THE AIR...come join in the fun! ;o)

Here's my card for this hop:

I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and blended Distress Oxides in Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves to create my background; I added some water droplets for more texture. I then used the  MFT- Wonky Stitched Rectangle die to cut the panel. To create my hill, I used Lawn Fawn Stiched Hillside Borders cut from MME "Record It" paper pad and inked it up with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. A Mushroom die cut from Quick Kutz blended the edges with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxides finished off my little scene.

I stamped 2 of the bird images from the MFT- Tweet Friends stamp set  in Versafine Black Onyx Ink onto Bristol Smooth paper and colored up the images with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I added some white Gel Pen for highlights and fussy cut them out. I stamped the song notes and sentiment from the set using Black Onyx Versafine ink and die cut the sentiment using the MFT- Slanted Sentiment Strip Die. Voila! One TWEET

Here's the inside of my card using another image and sentiment from the set:
