Someday scrapsPosted: April 13, 2013
If you read Godelieve Tijsken’s blog, Stamping Matilda you will know I have borrowed the title of her regular Sunday post but changed it slightly. Each week she gathers scraps from her work table, creates something from them and posts it on her blog under the title ‘Sunday Scraps’. It is always interesting to see how she has made use of leftovers. I am nowhere near organized enough to have a project made from leftovers every week but I recently started saving my stamped scraps in the hope using them in a project someday. After checking with Godelieve I decided to call my post “Someday Scraps” ; you never know it might be come a regular thing. If you are not familiar with Godelieve’s blog you need to go there right now because it is full of wonderful creations which are very innovative and artistic.
Having said all that, I haven’t really created a new card from scraps the way Godelieve does. A few weeks ago I made a one layer card for One Layer Wednesday which was inspired by packaging. You can see it here. When I was making that card I tried embossing the white berries before stamping the green leaves and vice versa. Which ever worked best ( sorry I don’t remember) became the card for One Layer Wednesday; the other trial became the scrap you see here. I took the scrap and changed the orientation. I also added some sponging to make the berries pop a little more and mounted it on a white mat on a green cardbase. In my ribbon drawer I found a very wide piece of organza ribbon so I cut a piece off and attached it across the panel before adding a sentiment.
I now have a little box beside my worktable with “Someday Scraps” in it. You might see them someday…
