Upright Diamond Card - Anniversary

I am always on a quest to find cards that are fun.  It seems these days that I'm spending a chunk of time checking out Pinterest while I'm hunting for fun cards to try out.  Well, once again Pinterest helped me out with the Upright Diamond Card.  My only issue with the original instructions is the card is really big it turns out to be 5X7 sized card.  So, I used some scrap paper and modified the card to be 4.25X5.5.

Suuplies: Paper: Bazzill, SU (Real Red) & Making Memories (Black Tie); Nestabilities (Classic Hearts); Stamps: SU (Occasional Quotes) & Studio G; Embossing Powder: Stampendous (Detail Black); Embossing Folder: Sizzix (Hearts & Dots); Punch: SU (Eyelet Border) Misc: Scor-Pal

Another Card Using Scraps

The other day I had some scraps sitting on my desk and I made a simple card with them.  I still have a bunch of those same scraps left over and I'm now determined to try and use them up.  Here is another card using those scraps.  This time it's a gate fold card and I really think this stamp is fun.

Using Scraps

I haven't done much card making all summer long, but this past weekend I was at a Stamp A Stack and felt like my creative juices were coming back.  During the stamping this weekend, I picked up some of the scraps that were getting tossed.  At the time I thought that maybe they could be used for something.  So, today I was on a quest to use these scraps, here is what I came up with.  The scraps in this card is the Stampin Up DSP paper.

Supplies: All Stampin Up - Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, DSP; Punch: Scallop Trim, Scallop Lace Trim, 1/2" Circle. 3/4" Circle, 1" Circle, 1" Square; Embossing Folder: Perfect Polka Dots; Ink: Marina Mist; Stamps: So Happy for You & Happiest Birthday Wishes; Misc: Ribbon

Elsa and Bart

This layout I started months ago.  I'm thinking that I started it back in April, but it got pushed to the side to make some cards and never got finished.  So, today I was cleaning up  my area and came across it.  So, I just decided to stop ignoring it and finish it up.  It didn't take long once I got started. 

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill & DSP (Misc); Cricut: Mickey Font & Base Camp; Ink: TH (Gathered Twigs); Stamps: CTMH (Tiny Typewritter Alphabet); Punch: SU (1 3/4 Circle); Distress Stickles: Rock Candy
