Quilting on a card using your scraps

We have done a class on using up our scraps before, however it is always good to go back and revisit as the scraps just keep coming.

I first saw the design of this card made by my colleague Leisha Ward and kept it in the memory bank for just such an occasion.

This card has scraps of designer series paper from many different themes and yet it does not matter one iota, it all just looks like a fun card. The petals were punched from the retired Blossom Petals builder punch.

This card we used half inch strips of Designer Series paper in a herringbone fashion. I think the best tip I can give you, is to start with the longest piece running across the centre of the paper and then work out at right angles from there. We used the circle framelit out of the Stitched Shapes Framelits, such a handy set. Stamped the sentiment from Watercolour Words stamp set. The base card was Sahara Sand and the small layer was Basic black.

 This was a card I made when I first became a stampin' Up demonstrator 5 years ago. I first did it at a workshop and it was created by Elizabeth Collett. I've been wanting to redo this card for a long time now. I'm so pleased I finally made my wish come true. Can you see something new on this card? It's the new Lemon Lime Twist In Color card stock. Gorgeous hey!
