No Leftovers Here …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you enjoyed yesterday’s fall card and the fun “Reverse Masking” technique used to create it.

I had someone ask me … “What do you do with the left over items when you make a card?”  Well, she was speaking of the piece of paper that I used as a mask to create the leaf on yesterdays card.

Well … Let me show you!!


I that the mask looked pretty after I got done sponging, so I added a bit more sponging and trimmed it down and came up with the 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ square. I used dimensionals to raise the leaf above the “Into the Woods” designer paper.

I trimmed off the designer paper and matted the front (leaf) piece to create more impact for my focal point. Without the Early Espresso mat behind the leaf, it just blended in to much. Now the designer on the card front works well with our focal (leaf) point.

The card front sits upon a Early Espresso base and is tied together with a bit of that left-over bakers twine from my September Paper Pumpkin.  I created a little tag with the Note Tag and Curvy Corner Trio Punches (I’ll show you step by step soon).


The greeting on the tag comes from the stamp set “Teeny Tiny Wishes … still a staple in my stamp collection.

So … now you know what I do with some of my left-over paper, I use it!

Thank you so much for stopping by today ~

Hope your day is a good one!
