Hi Everybody! These card were made with rubber stamped images but because I haven't posted on this blog site for 3 days, I decided to take cards that I typically would post on my Stampin Inspirations blog site and post some of them on this blog site.
These cards were all put together with "scrap" materials. . .you know, stuff that you throw in a box, the ones that maybe you'll enventually use one day or finally decide to donate to charity.
I'm participating in a swap that Gabby at "Confessions of A Stamper" is hosting on SCS. The swap is to use items in your scrap pile.
I like how the card came out except for the sentiment. The sentiment don't quite match the rest of the card but I couldn't find a good sentiment in my scrap/junk pile. . .this was the best I could find. The swap theme is to use only scrap items. . .not scrapbook items. . ."scrap" items.
I stamped this dog image over two years when I still was using pastels to color my images. I haven't used my pastels like. . .forever. Gosh, two years don't seem too long ago. . .
I put this card together really quickly because everything was already stamped, colored, and cut up.
Although using scraps can be a quick way to make a card. . .it can also be difficult at times. The difficulty arises when you don't have cardstock or colored images that completely match or you have to dig through your junk to match the papers, images, and colors. You spend more time going through your pile than putting the card together.
Wow. . .I really slapped all these pieces together. Seriously, I did. . .I just took pieces of designer paper, cardstock, pre-stamped images and a very old, old, stamped sentiment and put them together. What do I mean by old, old? Way back when I was a newbie stamper.
I kept a lot of the images that I stamped 3 years ago and never used. This was was one of them. It's nice to finally use it. I'm not exactly loving it but I'm just happy that I reduced my scrap pile even by a little bit.
Anyway. . .it's very, very late. I really need to go to bed.
Until tomorrow folks or today that is. . .
