I got a day recently to spend all afternoon stamping and so I got to work making thank you cards, swap cards for this week’s leadership conference with Stampin’ Up, and just play with my new supplies. However, I gave myself a challenge to try to use up my left over scraps of designer paper and left behind pieces when I cut out ovals and shapes with my Big Shot. Basically, get them used now instead of having them sitting around because “they are perfectly good punch outs that I can use sometime” and never use.
So, this is what I came up with for some of my left over strips of paper after I made the watercolored thank you cards I shared the other day.
The two patterns are the front and back of the same paper and all the strips are the same size, just offset from each other.
The bird and sentiment are from a limited time Valentine’s Day set from Stampin’ Up called Love You More. I actually bought it because it has a cool globe image, but I also loved this sentiment and the made with love stamp as well. see…
It’s from the set of special valentine’s stamps and kits available through January 27th. You can check them all out online here.
But back to the card… you just color in the bird with your markers and punch out…then stamp and punch the sentiment. I decided to add a little bling by glittering up the “love” and “more”. Lots of scraps and this and that in this card!

Alright, I was kind of brief… but I guess I’ll have to try harder next time I don’t want to be a jabber mouth! Until then…
