Using Up Die Cut Scraps

A short time ago, I created this card using a TON of Paper Smooches Rainbow Die cuts. I loved the card and it turned out better than I could have imagined, however, the process of creating it involved cutting the entire rainbow MANY times in several colors. That left me with a large pile 'o rainbow bits. HA!

In the studio today! #rainbow #papercrafting #beautifulmess #papersmooches


In an attempt to use up some of those curvy bits of color, I decided to create a TOTALLY different card design using them! I pulled out a simple sentiment set from Paper Smooches and my trusty bottle of Tombow Mopo liquid and went to town!

You Color My World


I did a lot of weaving with the top left portion of the design and then kept the right side a bit simpler. I felt the gold wide strip MME paper complimented the bright colors well. This was really a lot of fun to put together. Pure play! LOVE those times in the studio!

SEE! FUN STUFF! And I only put a tiny dent in that pile o' scraps, but I am sure I can come up with something else! HAHAHA!

I am entering this one in the Paper Smooches Sparks Anything Goes Challenge this week!

  6. Love how fun this card is and those left over die cuts would have driven me nuts until I could use at least some of them up! So happy you came up a creative way to do that!

  7. So fun! I love how you used up your scraps....these always end up in the girls' scrap bin, but I've been known to pick through their bin after hours.
