This is a really stampy card (e.g. only coloured paper and stamps) I created with the Rummage Bin Primitive individual images. I used the CHF Woodgrain backgrounder for the card base and then stamped around the outside with the blanket edge stamp from the CHF Rummage Bin Primitive Christmas set.
To finish off the card I added some Flower Soft to the willow tree. I just LOVE this stuff (even though I’m hopelessly messy with it!).

One good way to “use up” those older papers in your stash is to stamp on them with backgrounder type stamps to give them a fresh look! On this card I stamped with the CHF French Script backgrounder onto one of the lighter patterned papers. Then I used a die cut tag to stamp (and heat emboss) my sentiment.

Here’s the second card I created with the K and Co Smitten supplies I rediscovered in my stash.
On this card I layered a bunch of word stamps from various sets to create my own custom sentiment. If you have a lot of different sentiment or word stamps, don’t be afraid to use multiple ones a the same time to create your own unique sentiments.
Stamps: Rummage Bin “Beautiful” set by Cornish Heritage Farms (flourishes and “beautiful” sentiment), Mona Lisa Moments “Classic Essential Expressions” by Cornish Heritage Farms (remainder of sentiment)
Ink: Adirondack Raspberry, Versafine Onyx lack
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (card base only)
Patterned Paper: K and Co. Smitten line
Accessories: Stickles (Cotton Candy), Prima flowers, Autumn Leaves Button, K and Co. Smitten Rub ons, K and Co. Smitten die cut hearts

I used the CHF Rummage Bin So Happy set as my focal point on the card and heat embossed it. I think this would make a nice engagement card.
I’ll post the matching card tomorrow (got to spread out those blog posts LOL!)

This is my interpretation of the sketch. I created my own background papers using two different Scrapblocks on some of the plain Basic Grey papers from the Urban Prairie collection. I used the Fiery Floral Scrapblock on the white background paper (stamped in light pink ink) and the Pin Dot Scrapblock on the pink background paper (stamped in dark pink ink).
I don't know about you but I often don't think to use all those plain distressed papers that come in my Basic Grey packages. These scrapblocks are an awesome way to maximize the use of your supplies since you can create your own custom papers with just some ink and some creativity!! The possibilities are endless.
I hand cut the butterfly and flourish designs out of the patterned paper and added them to my background. I finished off the layout with LOTS of Stickles and my new obsession.....Bazzill pom pom trim.
We would love to see your interpretation of the sketch. Just upload it to the gallery and come to the scrapbooking forum to link your creation to the challenge thread.
Stamps: Fiery Floral Scrapblock by Cornish Heritage Farms (stamped onto white background paper), Pin Dot Scrapblock by Cornish Heritage Farms (stamped onto pink paper at top), Mona Lisa Moments Big Inspiration by Cornish Heritage Farms (title), Saturday Evening Post Vintage butterflies by Cornish Heritage Farms (available Nov. 14th)
Ink: Adirondack Raspberry, Adirondack Pink Sherbet
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Urban Prairie
Accessories: Forever in Time glitter chipboard alphabets, Pom pom trim by Bazzill, Stickles, Prima flowers, Making memories rhinestone brads, Making memories mini alphabet stickers
