Have you every wondered what to do with paper scraps? Here are some simple card making ideas for all of those pretty patterned paper or 12x12 scrapbook paper scraps that you just can’t send to the dustbin. These are easy cards to make and look gorgeous when you’re done! So, on y go! Let’s get stamping.
All of these paper scraps cards use the Whale of a Time Suite from Stampin' Up! Included in the suite is the Whale Done stamp set, the Whale of a Time 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, the Sea Bed 3D Embossing folder, a spool of 3/8" Pool Party Sheer Ribbon, and the Whale of a Time Sequins. I think I used all of these awesome Stampin' Up! products in these three cards!
I am loving this fun fold card featuring a z fold. This is a great card making idea for Christmas, birthdays, or any occasion when you want a little something special. I tried it with the Forever Fern and Tree Angle stamp sets and the Forever Greenery and 'Tis the Season Stampin' Up! paper, but it would work with any stamps and patterned paper. It's such a quick and easy card design that shows off all that pretty patterned paper or scrapbooking paper you have hidden in your stash.
Enough of chatter, let's get to the details on these awesome z fold cards! On y go! Let's get stamping.
Today's card features emboss resist which involves heat embossing and ink blending. Plus, I have a video to show you exactly how to do the emboss resist technique. It also has splatters and dry embossing. I only have one card to share with you today, but it's a doozie! You'll want to watch the video to catch all of the tips and techniques!
For my greeting on this card, I cut the letters from a piece of Mango Melody 6" x 6" DSP adhered to an adhesive foam sheet. The simplicity of this card is striking!
