Winners Announcement and ...Use Those Scraps!

Happy June!
I can't believe we are into June now...
I am popping in with a post about using ink-sprayed paper for your project.
Also, I have two winners for Altenew online store announcement at the end of this post.

Sometimes you simply have too many scrap paper lying around and don't know what to do with them...Well, I used one of those paper with the following stamp and die.
Shop Altenew here
Shop Simon Says Stamp here

Today's card was created with Altenew's Extra Special.
you are extra special #1

I started out with that piece of Altenew ink-sprayed paper. I decided to emboss it because the color mix looks "cool"! After that, it was then abandoned because I didn't know how to use it! Until--ding!


I stamped the background based on the ink colors and voila!
It all came together because the Altenew sprays and inks are perfectly matched.
you are extra special #2

In the end, I focused on the color yellow, added a strip of glitter paper and finished it off with yellow card stock. Those tiny Yellow Liquid Pearls are awesome in this, too.

 Finally, it's time to announce 2 winners:

Congrats to the winners.
The way your mind works is awesome. Using that scrap and highlighting it so effectively just proves how brilliant you are. This card is gorgeous.

Do you have any good storage tricks for scraps? I keep the scraps and shove them in a drawer and they end up getting ruined. I figured you may have some tips for a beginner like me! Awesome card by the way!

Virginia L. said...

Thanks for the kind comments, everyone! Please keep them coming!

To Stephanie White: I have a small plate (like a dessert plate size) and I collect scraps there. Only "good" scraps get to be kept there...if I don't use them within a month (or two), they get tossed out. Hope this helps.
