Let's use the Leftovers - Card #10 - Retiring 2014-2016 In-Colours


Card #10  in my Series "Let's use the Leftovers". 

This one was a Super easy one...

My Card Base is in Crumb Cake Cardstock.

I took 4 scraps in different colours and each one with a different design from the 2014-2016 In-Colour Designer Series Paper.
I mounted them onto Whisper White Cardstock.

I then cut 3 small lengths of Stripped Cotton Ribbon in Lost Lagoon (my 5th colour) and with some snail attached them to the card.

I stamped the Flower which is from the Flower Patch Stamp Set and cut it out using the matching Flower Fair Framelits.

I stamped it  with  Versamark Ink onto a scrap of Lost Lagoon Cardstock and then applied White Embossing powder to it and heated it with my heat tool.

Even after all these years of heat embossing...I still love watching the powder "turn"...it's like Magic.

I stamped the Flower a second time again on a scrap of Lost Lagoon Cardstock...but this time I used the Lost Lagoon Ink...I then cut out just the centre of the flower with my scissors and positioned it on the top of the large flower with dimensionals.


The Sentiment is from the Crazy for You Stamp Set...you know how much I love that stamp set! :-)

I stamped it with Lost Lagoon Ink and punched it out with the 1"1/2 circle punch...a bit of sponging in Lost Lagoon round the circle...a bit of Bling in the centre of the Flower and I was done :-)
