Using up the Leftovers!

Hello Stampers!

Are you like me? Do you save all the bits and pieces from various kits

and tell yourself that you will use them for something else?

I kept coming across the gingham plaid tissue papers and these sticker flowers,

they are leftovers from 2 different Paper Pumpkin Kits!

I just kept looking at them and then set aside, pull them back out,

and set them aside again…for almost a year!

The other day, I decided that was it…

I was going to make something or throw them out!

The gingham tissue came from the Paper Pumpkin that had a little basket

you could put together, layer in the tissue, and them fill with 3 X 3 Cards.

I used the baskets and some of the gingham plaid tissue and made

an alternate Paper Pumpkin Cards. They were ALL regular sized cards!

(I still have the little envelopes…but that will be for another day!)

 

Here is the original Card I made from the basket kit!

100_5155

I cut the basket piece from the original and the Embossed in the Basket Weave TIEF.

The handle was made from a piece that would have gone around the top of the basket.

I rolled over the top of the strip to give the basket some dimension!

 

Here are the original Cards from the Floral Kit that was made!

#1

Ready to Go Night of Navy

#2

Ready to Go Garden Green

#3

I never used the sticker flowers from this kit!

 

I combined the gingham plaid tissue and the flower stickers  from

the original kits and this is what I came up with!

100_5763

I use the retired Easter Framelits to cut out the baskets with the handle!

I still have a lot of the sticker flowers leftover, but I am a bit inspired!

The tissues were cut down for the baskets and then for the side!

Card #3 Close Up!

100_5757

Granny Apple Green!

Here is the inside of the Cards!

100_5762

The insides are all stamped in their corresponding colors!

I used the same sentiment in all the cards!

 

So get out those bits and pieces and get to creating!

I made 8 of each of the 3 colors! That’s 24 cards!

I did box these up…set them aside for the Craft Fairs in 2019!

 

Until the next Post…Blessings and Leftover Loving to you ALL!
