Sunday's Bits & Pieces #2


Welcome to Sunday's Bits & Pieces #2, this is part of a new years resolutionish post i am doing every Sunday, featuring cards made with paper scraps and leftover embellishments as the main focus. Today's card features a lot of leftover embellishments. I started with the label shape already die cut from kraft and stamped with a black border. It was edged with orange ink, but i kind of covered it up edging the label with dye distressing ink.

Next i found the butterfly i had already stamped and embossed in black ink and colored with pearlized pigments. I also found a orange flower that i liked under the butterfly. The flower was originally a bright orange, so to turned it up side down and rubbed on PTI Canyon Clay ink pad. 

Then i found a good size piece of pattern paper that had a nice distress text. To spice it up a bit i found solid circle stamp with dash marks that i thought went well with the border and dots on the label. I stamped the circle in a dot formation over the patten paper. Last i ink the edge with distress ink.

I wanted to use as much paper as possible so i went with a 5 x7 card and added a strip of black from my scrap bin. I die cut the edge and adhered it just under the my custom poka-dot paper. Next i tied thick black twine were the pattern paper meets the black cardstock. I adhered this panel to my cardbase.

Just Because is the sentiment i choose for the label and stamped it in black ink, then adhered the label to the cardfront with pop up dots. Last i adhered the flower and butterfly to the top right corner of the label.

Thanks for stopping by and i hope this inspires you to use up those paper scraps and extra embellishments!
