winnie and walter 4th birthday - scraps and dies

Howdy peeps! Back with more cards for Winnie and Walter's 4th birthday bash.

Did you see Kelly's challenge - Use Your Scraps ? Well bless your heart, Kelly. I finally tackled the tower of scraps that has been threatening to tumble off my cabinet for the past few months!

Here's what I did with the first pretty scraps I found. Amazing how many WW pieces there were in the pile...

This card started with the negative of the tree from my cards a couple days ago for PTI's birthday bash. Added it over a "stamp off" page from my notebook (though I think this was cleaning up leftover gold embossing paste through a stencil - maybe from this project) cuz I thought that touch of gold through the leaves would look cool. Added a couple leftover sentiments and some leaves.

Then there was this negative left from this card. Backed it with some leftover watercolored scraps and some more leftover leaves - they were from this card for Winnie and Walter's 2nd birthday!!!

Then I grabbed this black scrap left from die cutting confetti. It also had a circle cut out of the bottom portion so I plugged it with a leftover die cut from this project. Stitched on a leftover vellum sentiment and added a couple more leaves. Yeah. I have a thing for leaves! Oh and a couple sequins seemed to finish it off.

Are you playing? Wouldn't today be a great day to tackle your scrap pile?!? I'm joining the fun at:

Fabulous cards, Maria!!! Love how you used your negative die cuts over some other pieces to make a wonderful arty look. Adding W&W leaves is always a great way to dress things up even more!

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your nice comment on my card where I used some of those wonderful W&W leaves and a negative die cut, too! Have a lovely weekend!!!

Brilliant use of scraps!

Amazing, Maria ... you turn even 'scraps' into something (or rather somethings!) so delicious ... I'm particularly taken by the last one ... bold and dramatic with a touch of softness in the stitched vellum sentiment ... yum! Hugs, Anita :)

Oh my goodness! Can’t believe how many cards you’ve managed to get out of your scraps. What fabulously bold projects, just your brilliant style. Xx
