Sharing a Fun Tip

Hi everyone!  Thanks for stopping by the blog today!  I wanted to share a quick tip with you.  I LOVE to use my scraps, but I especially love using my leftovers from punches!  They add such great design to cards and projects and it's a really easy addition since you already have it punched.  For example, here's a card I made using the gorgeous Beautiful Botanicals stamp set from Skipping Stones Design.

I started by stamping a row of flowers:

(Holy cow there's a lot of ink on that stamp...just ignore that!)

Then I laid over my flowers a piece of paper that I had punched circles out of.


As you can see, I added lace underneath that.  But I love how the flowers are just peeking through the holes.  I actually stamped a few more light flowers in spots that looked a little bare.

Then I added just a little more and my card was done!


Hope I have inspired you to use those punched scraps!  I really think it adds a unique fun design element to any project.

Have a wonderful day!
