After making card kits for my groups at McCalls I ended up with small pieces of scraps and I used those to make cards for my friend Carmen's daughter Dani.
The sentiment circle was obtained from the internet and I just printed it on my computer and then used a circle punch. I used two of my Stampin Up Circle punches on the teal paper and then added mounting foam between the layers to get it to pop up off the card.
I had cut extra hearts for the kits for McCalls in case anyone messed up but luckily they didn't and that left me with extra hearts which came in handy for these "scrap" cards. The mat of the card is the back side of one of the other papers and it had that stamp and tag image printed on there. I just worked the flowers, hearts and ribbon around the images and I think it turned out pretty nice.
I used a left over mat and hearts from the kits and then added some of the scraps I had to make this card. I think the bling on the hearts really added to make it different than the other one I did that was somewhat similar.
Is anyone else ready to move on to some other projects besides Valentine's Day? I AM!!
Great cards! I love the teal, pink, and red color combination - and such a great use of 'scraps'. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
ME TOO!..Working on St. Pat's Day now. Green everywhere. Loved your cards using scraps. Especially loved the second one with the stamp on it. But then all of your cards are favorites. Have a good week. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete

Love your creativity of combining elements to make such nice cards. My favorite is the one with the preprinted tag.ReplyDelete
Cute cards! I really need to get a few cards finished for my Family.ReplyDelete
Very cute cards Okie, They all are really cute but if I had to chose one it would be the last one. Maybe because it has hearts on it.ReplyDelete
What a great use of all your leftovers!!!
I never made any Valentine cards this year. So yep I am ready to move on. To what, IDK...LOL
Great Valentine's cards, Okie. Yes, I'm ready to move on too. I'd like to start making Easter things. I've never gotten in to St. Patrick's Day as I have absolutely no Irish in me.ReplyDelete
I find that some of my favorite cards are ones made fron leftovers! That all started by using scraps on my layouts...WOW what a concept--using scraps in scrap booking--who knew!ReplyDelete
Cute cards, your cards are always so well coordinated, tfs.ReplyDelete
Wow! all these cards are beautiful and different in their own special way. Now who said that left overs weren't good?ReplyDelete
