isnt it wonderful having an extra hour - I used mine to stamp ...probably should have slept instead LOL
anyway, this week Sugar Creek Hollow is having their "Trash to Vintage Treasure Challenge - well, I've been waiting...heeeeheeeeheeee....have a small box full of "trash" ready to use on cards - some I know how I want to use...some I dont have a clue (-:
Here is my trash for this challenge - it's the tag from the Thanksgiving garland I bought at Hobby Lobby - saw those flourishes and KNEW it was going to my "trash" stash (-:
it was a large tag so I cut it to fit my card...matted it to light blue card stock...added twill ribbon that I had lightly sponged with Ranger's Aged Mahogany and adhered to black cardstock for the base
can you see the white flower soft - not sure if I should have used that since its "vintage" and they didnt have fake "snow" on stuff....i dont think they did? lightly colored images with Copics and matted onto black cardstock. Took a small piece of light brown cardstock that was also sponged with Aged Mahogany, ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Doodle Parts and added to offset the flourish
but it still looked bare
light bulb moment !!
made three crepe paper flowers using small Stampin Up punches - gold brad in center - scrunched them up and lightly dusted with...again...Ranger's Aged Mahogany...very lightly...
VOILA! my card (had to cut the tag in half but the twill ribbon covers that)!
the image is from the Layers of Color new Christmas Collection release designed by Nina Brackett and the set is called
you will see more of this collection...i really really really love it!
have decided that this collection is my choice for my cards this year
now I just have to seriously get started on making them (-:
hugs and blessings,
