'Scraptastic' cards, part 2

As I mentioned in my last post, I've been using up the scraps of Designer Series Paper (DSP) that were left after making my cousin's shower invitations. Earlier this week I shared five individual cards I made with the scraps. Today I'm going to share two sets of four note cards.

Supplies (all Stampin' Up!):
Paper: Whisper White card stock, white note cards and envelopes, Subtles DSP Stack
Accessories: Butterflies Thinlits dies, corner rounder, Bitty Butterfly punch, 1-1/4" square punch, rhinestones, Mono Multi liquid glue

I think these cards are my favorite of all the ones I made with the DSP. For each card in the set I used six squares of DSP, and I rounded opposite corners on each square. I adhered the squares in a grid on a note card base, added a butterfly die cut in the middle and placed a single rhinestone on the butterfly.

I also added a little accent to the envelopes by adhering a small butterfly punched out of DSP to the flap of each envelope.

Supplies (all Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Thanks a Latte (Paper Pumpkin)
Paper: Thick Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette card stock; white note cards and envelopes;  Subtles DSP Stack
Ink: Crumb Cake
Accessories: Cups and Kettles Framelits dies, corner rounder, Hearts border punch, small heart punch, 1-1/4" square punch, Brick Wall embossing folder, Mono Multi liquid glue, Dimensionals

I bought the Cups and Kettles Framelits dies months and months ago, before they retired from the last Occasions catalog, but I had never used them. When I was looking for a focal image for the flowery pastel panels on these cards, I decided the mug shape would be a good choice, and the Thanks a Latte stamp set from a past Paper Pumpkin kit has sentiments that coordinated perfectly.

I added a tiny pink heart to each mug and die cut the "steam" from Crumb Cake card stock. To add a little texture, I embossed the card bases with the Brick Wall embossing folder before attaching the focal panels with Dimensionals. I also added a DSP heart to the flap of each envelope.

I enjoyed this little challenge to use up some DSP scraps, and I hope these cards gave you some ideas for fun "scrappy" layouts. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a fab way to use up your scraps of DSP! (Note self: I must start doing this!)
    My fave cards are the ones with the mugs, and I love that brick embossing folder you used! Such a cool background!
