The other day I received a package of goodies I ordered from FSJ. It's so fun to get treats in the mail and I was even more excited because it also included the FREE gifts lasercut wood stars that I've been drooling over since their reveal. I ordered some blending brushes and blending solution and the sentiment set you see in this card and POOF: I got my prized wooden star embellishments!!!
So by now you know that I love to spend my Sunday's rescuing scraps from previous card and crafty projects. I believe "unwanted" scraps hold so much potential and they're just waiting to demonstrate their power if you just take a chance with them. Sooo....While listening to my favorite gospel music station on the radio, I set out to create a few cards...with leftovers...and some embellishments.
I really love how these two cards came together. They are fun and whimsical with a splash of collage-artsy...just the way I like to create!
Perfect little stitches and splashes of reinker and Silk just pull everything together!
Oh how I love those little stars! Perfect embellishments for these fun cards. I think they're meant to dance with those sparkle drops, don't you think?
And that itty bitty sentiment? PERFECTLY snuggled in under that pop of sparkle! :)
Please join me in discovering the joys of crafting with scraps. They will give you every bit of pleasure (and maybe more) than a big old cut piece of paper...and will encourage your creative muse to step out into HER spotlight!
