Quick Cards vs.3

Once again I was playing with my scraps. I guess you can say I'm on a mission to use them up. I'm pretty sure this idea came from Susan Opel, on Facebook. (Sorry couldn't find a link)

The idea is simple. Take various pieces of pattern paper, in assorted colors that go well together. Cut them in various size strips & adhere. Add some sort of embellie & sentiment & you're DONE!

For me the bonus was using up some embellies that were just sitting in my stash. The colors look so much better IRL. It was a cruddy day when I took these pics & I had trouble with the glare. :(


I modified the balloon on this embellie with a punched circle to cover the original balloon color & added a button.

I do have a few more cards (& LO's) that I've done, & will be posting. Eventually I'd like to tackle my cardstock scraps & found an idea on Pinterest that I'm going to try! YAY for Pinterest!!

That is a really neat idea. I may have to try that. Although I don't have any patterned paper scraps, just solid cardstock, but it should still work.
