Showing some stash-busting cards

 Showing some stash-busting cards

It was a full weekend, and so this post will be short. I wanted to share a few recent cards that all are fulfilling one of my crafty goals this year--using up my large stash of patterned paper.

Card #1: I stamped the Smiling stamp set from Waffle Flower, heat embossed it and the colored with my Zig Markers. I die cut out the image with a rectangular die cut and then ink blended around the edges. The background came from a piece of orange-tinted floral paper, that I covered with a scrap of ink-blended paper that I die cut using another die cut (you can see it a little better below in the second card). I finished up the card by gluing all the layers together, adding some gems from Honey Bee Stamps and placed it all on an orange card base.


Card #2: The process was similar. I stamped, heat embossed, and then colored with some Zig markers the Altenew Starry Flowers stamp and die set. I used two additional pieces of paper from my stash. The yellow base layer is a piece of origami paper. I layered a piece of old magazine paper that I had painted with some pink paint a long time ago and die cut it with a die cut in my stash. I glued all of the layers together (the Starry Flowers were popped up with some foam tape). I decided that I needed to add a sentiment that I had previously made with Simon Says Stamp Just Because Word Mix 2 stamp and die set. I ink blended the sentiment and added that to the panel with some foam tape. I glued the panel to a yellow card base, add some gems from Honey Bee Stamps and some additional yellow gems. I splattered some gold paint using Gansai Tambi Starry Colors


Card #3: I die cut a piece of alcohol-inked Yupo paper with Simon Says Stamp's Ring Wreath die cut and then glued it to a blue card base. I added some flowers from Reverse Confetti's Floral Gem stamp and die set that I had left over from another project and a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Just Because Word Mix 2 stamp and die set. The floral imagess were popped up with an additional 2 layers of card stock that were glued behind them. The sentiment was popped up with some foam tape. I finished off the card with some gems from Honey Bee Stamps and sequins from Catherine Pooler.
