Scraps and Smooch

I had multiple thin strips of Very Vanilla left over from cutting another project.  Rather than toss them,  I grabbed the Bella Toile Background and stamped them with the new Crumb Cake ink.  
These strips were mounted on an Early Espresso layer that had been sprayed with Log Cabin Smooch Spray to give a pretty coppery sheen.  This was layered on Cherry Cobbler on a Crumb Cake card base.

The flower was made with multiple layers of packing paper punched with the scallop punch and secured with a brad then scrunched up.  Both the flower and the Friends piece were spritzed with more Log Cabin Smooch.  (I just cant stop using it!)  I tore the edges of the Friends layer and sponged Early Expresso on the edges to distress it.  

A tiny Cherry Cobbler flower and Always Artichoke leaves finished out this scrap inspired card.

  1. Love the flower and your idea to use the packing paper -- looks beautiful. I am always looking for ideas to recycle this paper, thanks for sharing.
