Seasonal HB Cards

Hello & Happy Friday!

I've been up and at it since very early this morning!
Even before Shawn's alarm went off...
I had my coffee, made a pack of cards, rode my stationary bike, made breakfast for Ryan & I and got the laundry started! 
Guess I was pretty productive but by mid afternoon I will probably be ready for a nap!

Yesterday my card lady called to order some cards.
She requested something seasonal for February!

This is what I whipped up for her...

I went searching for a pack of paper and pulled out this one called Love Blossoms from 2016.
There was alot of scraps in there so I just cut them up in 3/4 x 3 3/4 strips. 
I had to remind myself to pay attention to the direction on each pattern. 
I adhered them onto a piece of cardstock that measured 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 square. 
A few of them are different as I used what scraps I had.

Card Details:

Stamps: Great Greetings (retired)
Ink: Rose Red (retired)
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White, Rose Red (retired), Whisper White, Love Blossoms DSP (retired)
Accessories: Circle Layering Framelits, Rose Red Enamel Dots (retired), Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I love using up the old stash and all those scraps made some very pretty cards!

I don't know if there is a technique name for using up scraps like this but I love using this style for something different! I think it makes the card very colorful & eye catching, too!

My thoughts today...


Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

I agree with you - those paper snippets do make beautiful cards, and I like that you used what you had, which gives each one it's own distinctive look! I wish I had your energy in the morning like I once had LOL You go girl!

What a great use of DSP scraps! I'll have to remember this idea.
