Using up your scraps with a CUPPA LOVE

Wednesday, January 30th, 2019

Good morning crafty friends! Amy here with my last post for Scrap N’ Stamp. It’s been a pleasure creating with these fun products and alongside some AMAZING ladies!

Today I have a little fun tutorial to use up your scraps along with Spellbinder’s CUPPA LOVE die set.

Here’s the fun and BRIGHT card I made using up a few pieces of scrap along with some adhesive.

I started by cutting 1/4′”strips out of my collection of scrap cardstock pieces. I then applied Be Creative Adhesive sheet to the back of a piece of copy paper cut to 4.25″x 5.5″. I  then peeled of the release paper and started lining up my strips…really quick and easy! ;o) I started with the colors of the rainbow but lost a bit  of the ROY G BIV order when I cut it down for my panel. BUT I still think it’s fun and pretty! lol

I applied Candied Apple Distress Oxide to Bristol Smooth paper,  straight from the pad, no blending tool and used that to die cut the cup from CUPPA LOVE. I  then used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide applied to Bristol Smooth to die cut the Coffee portion from the die set  as well. I adhered it all together and added some leaves and a little heart from the same set to complete my mug. Some little white gel pen highlights and some Nuvo Crystal Glaze applied to the coffee and heart finished it off…doesn’t it look good enough to drink???

A sentiment from Art Impressions Latte Love Set stamped with Black Onyx Versafine Ink die cut with MFT-  Fishtails completed my sentiment. I adhered the panel to black cardstock and applied it to my base card with fun foam. A natural hemp ribbon finished off my card.

So  there we have it, a fun and relatively easy way to use up some scraps to get a BRIGHT background for your cards.

I sure hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial and don’t forget to check out the LOVE IS IN THE AIR Challenge over on or FB page here.

Happy Craftin’!
