Still Using Scraps

Well the sunshine seems to have disappeared for the moment - probably because the holiday weekend is coming up.  Today's card is made from some more of my scraps and I've realised that working in this way it takes longer to produce a card than starting with new pieces of card and paper and also requires some ingenuity and brain power but I will persevere.  Backing paper here is from Stampin' Up; the Top Note shape was cut using a Sizzix die and stamped with a Wisteria stamp from Chocolate Baroque; bird bath was made from punched ovals and the bird was the Bird on Branch punch from SU.  The flowers had been printed from a CD (forget which one) and I'd cut out quite a few and stored away (a good job to do sitting comfortably in front of the fire when the weather was cold); leaves were cut with a Marianne die; a scrap of cream embossed card and punched greeting complete this card.


  1. This is gorgeous Val, I love the bird and bath. Thoses flowers look as though they could be from one of the MCS cds. Keep up the good work with the scraps.

  2. I can well imagine it takes longer but I bet it feels good persevering. Love the way you picked up on the hints of blue in those flowers with the bird's eye.

  6. Great card Val - I'm SO impressed you're still using your scraps - long may it continue!

  7. I love how you have made the bird bath Val and the flowers are very pretty.
    It does take longer and more brain power making cards from all the scraps but it gives a great sense of satisfaction when you succeed
