Simply Stampin' Challenge 61

On Simply Stampin' challenge this week there is a sketch to use as inspiration - also lots of great ideas from the Design Team so well worth taking a look. At risk of being boring I'm still using leftovers as much as possible although the 'mountain' doesn't seem to be decreasing in size yet!!.  The Stampin' Up  backing paper was a piece cut to size for a previous project but not used because it didn't  look right and all of the die cut and punched, stamped shapes were cut from odd bits and pieces.  Flowers were stamped with Posy Punch, cut with the matching punch; leaves punched using the Bird on a Branch; layered shapes were die cut Nestabilities and the long strips used the Dotted Scallop ribbon punch.


  1. Gorgeous card Val love the colours and layout.. It is a great idea to use scraps and amazing what you can produce from them...


  2. Another wonderful card Val, how good you are being using your scraps on every card you are making at the moment. The hot pink colours are certainly in keeping with the weather at the moment, lets hope that it lasts.

  3. I think you are being very inventive with your scraps & this certainly doesn't look as if it is made from odds & ends. Love the olive green with the pinks.
