Kraft & Cream

Kraft is such a versatile color to work with. I like to pair it with bright, vivid colors, but the challenge this week over at Less Is More is to create a card with only kraft and cream. Here's what I did: The flowers are made using a heart punch with scraps of various papers I had laying around - book page, sheet music (colored with walnut ink Distress Stain) and a tag that had been stamped on. I finished the flowers off with little buttons in brown shades. My first attempt is quite different. Still kraft and cream but much busier so I decided it wasn't CAS enough for the challenge. It makes me chuckle though so here's a peek at that one too. Thanks for stopping by today!

Scrap Busting!

Hey! So yesterday I said I had some fun things on the way using up scraps. Today I'd like to share the first one with you! It also involves some weaving - my new favourite technique. This one uses up scraps from the brights collection so its incredibly bright and vibrant and super fun! Stamp Set: Peaceful Moments Ink: Bermuda Bay Cardstock: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Gorgeous Grape Punch: Story Label Accessories: Brights Candy Dots (retired) In sorting out my scraps I found lots of thin strips of card that I thought I could use for something but they gradually accumulate and I don't use them as much as I should, its always so much quicker and easier to cut up a new piece than wade through the scrap box for something that will fit. So, I used a few of these scraps as is, and some I cut much thinner so that I had different widths ranging from about 5mm up to 3cm. Once I had a bunch cut up I began to weave. Getting the first couple vertical and horizontal ones in place is the most difficult. After those are in place, the tension created is substantial enough to keep the strips in place as they were woven in. When I was happy with the placement - trying to vary the colours and strip widths so that it looked pretty random - I added tombow to the back of the strips and glued it down to a piece of Whisper White. I then went around all the edges gluing all the ends of the strips down. I matted it on some Bermuda Bay card and added it to a white card base. I thought a simple white label punch would be best for the sentiment - to try and act as a balance to the vibrant colours. I stamped in Bermuda Bay because I thought it would tie together the matting, weaving and sentiment layers quite nicely - I think that bit of consistency really works. What do you think? In the spirit of using up scraps, I found some candy dots that have been retired a long while but haven't got used up yet, so I popped a few around the sentiment just to add a little more colour to the sentiment layer. I hope you've enjoyed this scrap buster! I'm for sure going to be making more of these and I have some other scrap busting ideas up my sleeve to show you over the coming days. Stay tuned. Take care,

Stampin Up Bloom Where You’re Planted | Stepped-Up Pinwheel Tower Card | Crafting Daily Dose

Pinwheel Tower cards are really popular right now, and for good reason! They’re fun to make and to receive. From my perspective, all those extra card folds create possibilities for additional elements, which I love! My stepped-up version includes a window and a couple of pop-ups, and I’ll show you how to add those to your card as well! The version I show in the video uses a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) to create the central “tower,” and you can find those measurements below. Some people
