Using Left Overs to Create Beautiful Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well it’s finally Friday and I am excited about that! I’m also excited to share a solution to using up the left overs in your Paper Pumpkin kits to create beautiful cards … let nothing go to waste 🙂

If you recall Wednesday’s post, I shared the video on the A Lovely Day kit that illustrated how each of the three cards were made. I’m using the “pop out” piece that came out of the Birthday Cake card.

A simple solution to left over pieces is to take a piece of your favorite designer paper … I used the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  I love the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper because of the hand-painted impressionistic imagery in rich colors. 

When you layer the designer paper onto coordinating colors of cardstock … the imagery on the designer paper really comes alive. I used Grapefruit Grove to which pulls out the same color in the reflection.

I stamped the greeting onto the “pop out” piece from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  This stamp set has the words you need to express your thoughts… so versatile.  I did add a piece of vellum cardstock behind the greeting to really make it pop.

So, a simple solution to use up those extra pieces in your Paper Pumpkin kits. There is always plenty of left overs that you can keep your creative juices flowing.  A real bang for your buck.

Thank you for stopping in and my hope is you’ve been inspired to use up all those left over pieces in your Paper Pumpkin kits to create beautiful cards!

Have a great day!  Linda
