Got Scraps?

Then use them!!

Stamps: Hero Arts 'Happiness Messages'. Ink: Chocolate Chip. Cardstock: Textured white, Basic Grey 'Bittersweet' DP.

I've been inspired by my friend's (Donelda of Wiggy's World) challenge to use cardstock scraps to create cards; now I've finally decided to give it a try!

For full details on this card, including how to cut these diamonds without all of my original trial and error, be sure to check out the KL Scrappin' N Stampin' blog.

  4. Hi Jessica
    I am blog hoppin' tonight and thought I would look you up to see what you have been up to. Some great cards here! I LOVE your scrap piece - that is fantastic! I could make a ton of cards with this idea as my scrap box is filling at a rapid rate. Thanks for the suggestion.
    Hope you and your family are keeping well.
