Hello everyone, today I thought I would share something slightly different and show some the projects I made during January when I looked through my selection of retired and scrap pieces of designer series papers. I wanted to start the year free of leftover pieces of designer series paper and to use up my retired papers, ribbon and embellishments. Mostly the designer paper scraps were not large enough to create a whole project or card, and definitely not big enough for 3D projects so I came up with a few designs and made a selection of birthday cards, thank you cards, get well cards and encouragement cards.
As you will see going through the medley of cards some are designed with an image on the card front stamped or coloured, others have a greeting stamped and others a die cut greeting. Some cards are a standard size card and others have a fancy fold such as the gatefold and joy fold cards above.
While the papers, ribbon and embellishments are retired the stamps on the front are all from current catalogues. Above we have greetings from Just Add Text and One big Meaning rubber stamp sets from the 2018 annual catalogue. The top left hand corner card is Bird Banter from the 2018 Occasions catalogue.
The stamp sets above include Bella and friends, Label Me Pretty, Amazing You and the Celebrate You thinlit dies from this year’s sale-a-bration catalogue. Most of the colouring in the images is done with the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers
Most of these cards will go to a children’s charity and some of the birthday cards will go to friends so I’m sure they will be put to good use. I hope this has given some ideas for using your left over pieces of designer series papers,
Bye for now,
