Love your scraps!


At Craft Your Passion this week the theme is Use Your Scraps.We have the fabulous Stitchy Bear Stamps as our sponsor.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used the sweet My Pillow  by Stitchy Stamps available at Stitchy Bear Stamps.She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers and the pillow has been paper pieced.The pink card for the base and mounting the image are left over from another card.The white pieces are off cuts from printing out digi stamps and the patterned papers are cut from the small bits we all save ‘just in case’ then can’t think what to do with them.The buttons are from some of my old pyjamas I threw into a rag recycling bin.So in effect I guess these are scraps too 😉 The sentiment I cobbled together using the first part of a sentiment stamp and some alphabet stamps for the word ‘Hugs’I can’t really take credit for the design as the idea came from an issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine in an article by Dena Concienne.

Supplies :

Image : My Pillow by Stitchy Stamps from Stitchy Bear Stamps
Sentiment : Using part of  a sentiment from Kaisercraft Mini Stamp Set Friends,Alphabet stamps from a 3 Birds Boxed Stamp Set
