Hello Everyone!

Welcome Back for a Peek at another Card!

Today’s Card is for a Combination of 2 Challenges!

The other is a Challenge to use your Scraps!

 

Here are the Challenges!

 

From the Paper Players  PP406

pp406

I opted for Fruit on my Card…I do not have any vegetable or fruit stamps!

Which leads to Challenge #2

 

Stamp Ink Paper #164-Use your scraps!

SIP-164_Use your Scraps

I went through my scrap drawer…it is where things I stamp and cut out or trim, or extra parts from Kits I have left over, or even leftover DSP pieces go! I sorted through and found the pieces from the July 2018 Paper Pumpkin-Picnic Paradise!

 

Here is my Card!

 

100_5152

Leftover Paper Pumpkin pieces, leftover Tutti Frutti DSP, leftover piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock, leftover piece of Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker’s Twine! Even scraps of Whisper White Cardstock, I backed the Berries with those!

Here is a side view of the Card to show the dimensional look!

 

100_5155

I used the long piece of the basket, cut it in half, and then ‘braded’ it to the basket. I then curled the handle over to give it dimension! Backing the berries with the Whisper White Cardstock also gave the Berries a little dimension too!

 

Here is a close-up of the fruit in the basket!

 

100_5154

The fruit was popped up enough to slip the leaves in behind the berries!

I also sponged the strawberries with Real Red Ink to make them more true

to the Real Red color in the DSP. I used White Craft Stamp Pad Ink and sponged

over the blueberry, to give it a more realistic look! It’s lightly done, I didn’t want

to make the blueberry, white!

 

Here is the inside of my Card!

My Mother had beautiful penmanship. The ‘Script’ on the front and

inside of my Card reminds me of my Mother’s writing.

I have her Bible, and she wrote many notes in the margins…I love looking

at her notes…it’s like she is there leading me through the pages.
