Hello! More cards using up patterned paper! The 4 cards in this post bring me to 12 cards from the remnants of OLD 6x6 patterned papers. I do have more paper left, although the pile is much smaller, and more scraps. At the end I can give you a sneak peek of how I am working with them!
I realized that there was this paper in the set that was too pretty to cut previously and would work well for a Bee theme! So I went through my stamps and pulled out anything that would go with a Bee!
The yellow on my last two cards looks like plain cardstock but it is actually a watercolored background from my stash. It does look more watery in real life!
Here is a list of the stamps used on my cards:
Our Daily Bread Designs Honeycomb Mini and Mini Bugs set (not sure if that is the real name)
Our Daily Bread Designs Rose Bouquet stamp set (Happy Birthday Sentiment)
Gina K Designs Happy Birthday to You stamp set
Gina K Designs Birthday Go-Round stamp set
Close to My Heart Cute as a Bug stamp set
I would like to enter the last two cards in the Inkspirational Challenge - Free or Gifted. The bee and honeycomb stamp sets from Our Daily Bread were gifted to me from Cheryl Scrivens YEARS ago. I have made good use out of them as that bee is super cute (and there are some other bugs in the set as well).
And here is a sneak peek of the setup for my next batch of cards using this same patterned paper. Do you ever set things up like this? I don’t always stick with the plan, but I find this helps me pick and choose what papers will go together and also what stamps will fit in the space I have for a focal point, etc. I’d love to know your process too!
Thanks for reading and commenting today! Have a good day!
