I have lots of scraps....and I store the patterned paper ones all together, shown above. So I sorted through them all, and picked out some nice ones that went together, such as ones from the same collection.
The ones above are scraps from the Mira collection from K&Co. This is most likely my fav patterned paper collection. ever.
So I punched a bunch of various shapes from the scraps. Circles, leaves, butterflies, scalloped circles.
Then I adhered them all to the cardbase.
I added a panel with a sentiment stamped over it to the whole card, along with some gems, and there you have it! The finished card. So, one way to use your scraps is to punch various shapes from them.
And now for a 2nd card, using scraps a different way (and using a different patterned paper collection):
So for this card, I cut the scraps into small strips, then adhered them to the card.
So yet another way to use your scraps is to cut them into small strips.
And now for my last card:
I used another patterned paper collection, and this time again punched some shapes. And I used both the negative areas from the cardstock, and the punched out shapes.
I punched out some scalloped circles, and used the negative punched out areas, and the circles that came out of them, which I flipped over so the pattern on the other side would show.
I adhered all the various scraps to my card base, and also added some yellow watercolor splatters.
I hope you enjoyed my cards...and be sure to go see everyone else's projects.A
