Random Cards of the Day - Project Reduce Scraps

Hey Everyone! Here's a few cards made still using scrap cardstocks and designer paper. The card base is the only thing that's not a scrap item. I'm sort of getting tired of using the same colored cardstocks and papers but I will continue to try and reduce my scrap pile.

The images were created using Heidi Grace stamps. This set is called "Tags and Words". I think it's a really cute set. I colored the images using Prismacolor Markers then applied SU Crystal Effects to give it a shiny 3D appearance. Hope you like it.

Card Details:
Stamp Set: Heidi Grace
Ink: Prismacolor Markers, Sakura Souffle Opaque Pen
Paper: DCWV Glitter Stack, SU Rose Red, Sage Shadow, Gable Green, Whisper White
Accessories: SU Crytal Effects, Making Memories eyelets, American Craft Elements Ribbon, Round Corner Punch, Fiskar "Cloud" Scissors

Just a quickie card. I'm still going through my scraps of designer paper and Making Memories chipboards. I'm dying to cut up new paper but I will hold out as long as I can.
Nothing much to this card. I stamped the image on to white cardstock, colored it with SU watercolor crayons, outlined the image and applied stickles glitter.

Card Details:
Stamp set: Autumn Leaves
Ink: SU Watercolor Crayons, Prismacolor Markers
Paper: DCWV Designer Paper, SU Marvelous Magenta
Accessories: Making Memories Chipboard, Grosgrain Ribbon, JoAnn Brad, Colorbok metal embellishment, Stickles Glitter, 1" circle punch
