Super Scraps Saturday – HIMCR #153

Happy Saturday! How fun it is to be back with a card for Super Scraps Saturday at Hiding in my Craft Room. This is one of my favorite challenges, and today I have a card featuring paper from our sponsor Paper Temptress.

Paper Temptress is giving away
 a $25 gift certificate 
to one lucky winner

Gorgeous metallic papers travelled all the way to Honduras from Paper Temptress and may I say, they truly are great quality. For today’s project I used their Candido Incandescent, which has a subtle golden shimmer and lineal texture that makes it look rich and elegant. In ‘real life’ it looks like a creamy white, just beautiful!

Other generic materials
3/8″ gross grain ribbon in tan/light brown

Vintage button in gold 

Besides the Incandescent paper I also used some other papers from my stash, but, Paper Temptress carries those textures. You can find them linked above on the list of materials, so you can check them out.

Because this card is made of scraps (except for the card base), all the elements were added as harmoniously as possible to create a shabby chic design. I made a bouquet, blooming from the top of the the card’s front, and worked the rest around it. I added many embellishments that complement nicely the floral vintage look I was trying to achieve. Finally, a heat embossed sentiment and butterfly from ODBD stamps complete the design.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s post, and that you feel inspired to join this week’s challenge at Hiding in my Craft Room. All you need to do is visit the blog, follow instructions and link up your creation. Let’s get rid of these scraps people! 😀

Super Scraps Saturday – HIMCR #145

Hello everyone! As all of you must know by now I’m part of Hiding in my Craft Room’s DT. So every Saturday I’ll be posting a project for our weekly challenge. And like every second week of the month, today it’s time for Super Scraps Saturday. To play along, make a project using paper scraps only… That’s right!  

Our sponsor this week is My Besties!

The winner of this challenge will receive 5 digital images!

With no further ado, let me show you a card I made using a cute My Besties’ image and some scraps for the challenge:

– Gold Circles One

– Small Lables
– Grand Calibur die cutting machine
Craft Concepts embossing folder – More Dots
Spectrum Noir markers – Pinks 
Faber Castell watercolor pencils (brown)
Avocado Arts stamps – Who Loves You
Ranger embossing ink
Inkadinkado embossing powder in Linen White
Zap! heat tool
Barrilito heart punch
Merletto crystal stickers
Bazic double sided tape
Other generic materials
Hawaii cardstock in white
Textured cardstock in sand and mint
7/8″ light pink gross grain ribbon

This is an A2 card made entirely of card stock scraps and left overs. The little owls are actually one same digital stamp I edited to look like a pair looking at each other. I colored them with markers in various shades of pink. For the branches I used watercolor pencils. To my surprise I was able to find scraps that coordinated nicely, both in color and texture. I love how well the pink and mint work together!

Now it’s your turn! We would love to see what you create. To play along visit, follow our guidelines and link your project.
