Another Hope You Can Cling To Card for our card drive over at Splitcoast Stampers. The challenge today…using up those strips of paper that collect in our craft rooms.
I keep all my misc. bits of paper right with the original 6 x 6 packs so that I can use them up. Each paper pad is stored upside down in a bin and that way I don’t lose all those little scraps. Works well for me. And it makes it really easy to thumb through a whole bunch of paper to find the right patterns and colors for a particular project. A win, win in my mind!
All the strips were laid out and then I flipped them over and attached them to a piece of card stock. Next it was run through and embossing folder and sanded. Added a bit of sponging along the edges too!
Die cut the banner and stamped it with the sentiment. I think this is such a great sentiment! Then I stamped and fussy cut the cute little pink boxing gloves. They were popped up with dimensional foam. There’s also a wee bit of Stickles on the heart on the left glove and a smattering of sequins.
Here’s what I used:
Paper: Stampin’ Up! Naturals Ivory and Glitz Design Pretty in Pink
Ink: Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and Potting Soil Archival
Stamps: Lil’ Inker Stay Beautiful
All the other stuff: Big Shot Pro, Tim Holtz Regal Flourishes embossing folder, MFT Die-namics Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX, Vintage Photo Distress Stickles, foam adhesive, sequins, sanding block, adhesive, sponge
Back soon with more my sweet friends…
