Hope you are all having a fab weekend
The Lovely Jules over at the house of hearts has set herself the challenge that on a Sunday everything she makes has to be from scraps!! I am always on a mission to reduce my scrap pile so I really wanted to join in.
Now Jules will only use a stamp if it is on Dp and not coloured...I have cheated slightly on this rule with my 2nd card....but she was stamped on a piece of scrap card .... I have also given myself the added challenge of using uninked stamps.... As many of you know that have set the challenge of making 100 things before I am allowed to treat myself to any new craft stash... ( I am now at 17 makes 83 to go)....part of the reason for this was to reduce my stash, but also to try and get round to using all those uninked stamps.......so I thought it would be fun to add that as an extra we challenge to my scrap Sunday! The stamps from today's cards are from a "Kanban" kit that I bought last year when it was a TSV on QVC.
The idea for the layout of the cards came from the Feb craft stamper mag, they had an article on "Clean Collage" and I wanted to try out.....and also a final mention the little covered buttons in the 2nd card are ones I made about 8 years ago when I was helping out a friend make her wedding dress.... these were left over...which I stashed away knowing I would find a use for them at some point!
I think that's enough waffle from me....and I also need to get ready to go out...i am off to the theatre tonight to watch "Brendon Cole - unjudged"....should be fun!
Thanks for looking!
