Time to use those scraps!

Good morning lovelies

Its that time on Friday for my wee post for Clare Curd Crafts and this week I have decided to share how easy it is too make some quick cards using scraps! We all have them and so why not use them and create some of those "last minute" cards we're always needing!

The papers scraps I used are Hey Boy from Basic Grey and some cream coloured 5x5 card blanks I had lying around! I wanted to show how easy it is to use up the little scraps you always have left over when you use up most of your paper pad

This wee star card was made from using paper strips about 2cm wide stuck down directly onto the card blank. Next I took the card blanks and cut off one of the fronts and run it through my Silhouette Cameo to get the stars. The using foam pads I stuck it over the papers, just so they peeked through. Added some Hey You stickers, some twine and some enamel dots to finish it off

I made this wee card using one of only a few left over full sheets to make the background paper next added a wee Polaroid shape cut in my cameo stuck with foam pads. I then stamp out Gorjuss Girl- The Lost heart with tuxedo black Memento ink and coloured with Promarkers, before embellishing with some of the cut out stars, twine and more Hey You stickers

Lastly I mad this wee card using lots of the scraps making ribbon style panels, some circles with my dies cutting machine a dies. Adding buttons from my stash with the some twine, some brads I had lying around and Hey You stickers

I hope these wee cards influence you to use on your scraps. Just added some extras from your stash, you can make simple "scrap" cards stand out!

Will till next time
