Small Scrapbook Papers turned into Cards!

Hello All!

Today I have an assortment of Cards that I made out

of DSP from a small scrapbook kit!

I had purchased this Kit, quite awhile ago and never

got around to making the scrapbooks.

I took a good look at the DSP and matched to

Stampin’Up! Cardstock I have on hand…Voila!

The DSP papers were 5″ x 5″, I cut them down to 3.75″ X 5″

The inside strip is 1″ x 5″ (the leftover piece!)

For these 5 Cards, the stamp sets I used were

Beautiful Bouquet for the greeting and

Cake Soirée for the inside sentiment,

using Gorgeous Grape Ink to stamp them all!

I also used the Layering Circles Dies for all the card fronts!

Here are the Cards!

Card #1

I used Old Olive and Gorgeous Grape Cardstock!

Card #2

I used Old Olive and Highland Heather Cardstock!

Card #3

I used Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather Cardstock!

Card #4

Here too, I used Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather Cardstocks!

Card # 5

Lastly, Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather were used again!

the piece I cut off was brown in color, I omitted it from the card interior.

That design circle was a tag that came with the kit!

If you have some DSP papers that have been hanging around

 turn them into the everyday, simple Birthday Cards, you will use!

Tomorrow is another set of cards from another type of

Small Scrapbook Kit!

Until the next Post…Blessings and Repurpose DSP to you ALL!
