Using It Up

A few weeks ago, I mostly disappeared a 6x6 pack of paper by making some cards for OWH. All that was left were a few pieces of red and blue-green that I loved and had trouble parting with.  A few days ago I took care of that and made several cards with the papers.

First, I played with a new-to-me stamp set from Taylored Expressions, and I made this:

The sentiment fits perfectly in the included stamped frame (of course), so I just layered it on some of the red paper, put that over a piece of the green, then went to work on the phone. There are several phone images included with the set, but this one spoke to me. :)

Then, to use up most of the rest of the papers, I made several of these:

Big chunks of the papers. They are so pretty I just want to fondle them. Sigh. This card follows the (omg it's still current) Dahlhouse Designs sketch:

That's also where I got my new watermark - click on her banner on the right side of her blog if you're interested in one for yourself.

This sketch was too easy. I just cut the red pieces with my Paper Smooches die, then layered them over pieces of the green. I found a birthday sentiment in a font I liked, and DONE.

I have a few strips of this paper left. As soon as I dig up a sketch that works for me, I'll use them, too. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I haven't used up a pack of paper in so long, I wonder what that is like.... I'm with you, there is always a piece or two left that you want to keep and fondle, pet and sniff. Or is that TMI? Great cards. I love the one with the phone.

  2. Wow, you used an entire 6x6 paper pack? That is IMPRESSIVE and amazing you are sending them off to OWH.

    I absolutely love your card for wanna sketch! Gotta love a fabulous cas card! Thank you so much for playing along girl!

  3. You are on a roll, girl! Those papers are gorgeous. They are definitely too pretty to not use up to the last scrap.

  4. total fabulousness (fabulosity??!?!) as usual! love, love, loooooooooove that cool PHONE, too. (i'm actually looking for one of those irl... long story... doesn't have to be red-n-green designer papered tho...) :)

  5. Those are wonderful. But now that song is gonna be stuck in my head ALL DAY! The phone on that card is really cute.

  6. fun cards, and I understand the paper thing...some are hard to cut into.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
