I LOVE the Brightly Gleaming patterned paper. It is absolutely gorgeous with rich colors and beautiful copper accents. I've used it and used it and used it in card making and scrapbooking and now, I have all these scraps. This scrapbooking paper is just too scrumptious to throw out the left over bits and pieces. If you've ever done any paper crafting, I'm betting you've run into a similar problem. I decided to sit down and see if I could create some cards from these paper scraps. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Sample Card Designs using Paper Scraps
For my first card, I cut a rectangle of the glued scraps using the Stitched Rectangle dies. I used a Night of Navy card base (8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"). I added a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock that is 1 3/4" x 5 1/4". Then, I added the rectangle that I cut from the piece of Brightly Gleaming scraps. Using the Joy dies, I cut the base of the word "Joy" from Pretty Peacock, the second layer from Copper Foil, and the third from Night of Navy cardstock. I stamped "to the world" with Pretty Peacock ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and trimmed close to the rectangular stamped image. For a little more sparkle, I added some stars cut from Copper Foil using the Stitched Stars dies.
