Today I went into my craft room and decided to do something with those scraps. I had some of them in practically every color of the rainbow just sitting in a pile on my workspace. I had always envisioned using them to make a fun card front-kinda like a crazy quilt.
I tried it out first on one piece of white cardstock. I kind-of liked it when I was done so I decided to make another one. After the two fronts were done, I had the hardest time finding stamps that would "work" with that kind of busy background. Well, I did find something: a stamped image of this tall cat (Sparkle 'n Sprinkle) given to me by one of my stamping friends at the shack (thanks lakeslady!). Then I decided the cute lucky elephant from Odd Bird Planet would work perfectly on the front of the other card...So, what do you think? Do you like how I turned scraps into treasures? I challenge you to use your tiny strips of scraps to make a base like the ones here. Post your creation on Stamp-Shack, twopeasinabucket.com, splitcoaststampers.com or papercraftplanet.com using the keywords SCRAPPY CHALLENGE and post a comment with a link here. I've got a huge box of goodies (stamps, embellishments, paper etc) to send to one lucky winner... Entries must be posted no later than this Friday, June 5.
