Fun layout for your scraps

Welcome back to my blog!

Isn’t it lovely to see the sun shining and all the spring plants coming into flower?

Today, I thought I would share what I created at a Stampin' Up! team evening last Friday. We got together over Zoom to have a crafting evening. We call them mystery stamping nights because all we get to know beforehand; is the supplies we’ll need. Then one of our team members talks us through the process to gradually reveal the cards or 3d project we’re making. Its such fun and there is always lots of laughs. This time it was a fun layout. Whilst it was simple, it was so effective!

We cut 1cm strips by 4 inches long, of designer series paper to place in the background – a great way to use up scraps! We then cut a layer of cardstock at a diagonal to lay on top of the designer series paper that you can decorate however you like.

I chose to use a range of products starting with our Whale of a Time suite. I just love this stamp set. It’s so fun and the papers are gorgeous.

Here I used Circle Celebration with night of navy, calypso coral and coastal cabana inks and Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper. I just love how bright the result is.

Then I decided to use our new Hey Birthday Chick. They just make me chuckle with all the possibilities you can make with them. Again, I used Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper but I also used our All Wired Up stamp set to stamp the layered corners. If you don’t like fussy cutting, don’t worry, there’s dies for the chicks! Its such a good value set and coordinates with the Hey Chick set.

Finally, I decided to try something simpler and stamped using Brushed Blooms on the layered corners and used Artistry Blooms Designer Series paper in the background. I love the ombre effect on the paper.

Have you got a favourite? Why don’t you have a go and share your makes with me, I’d love to see them!
