Layered Leaves Happy Birthday Card from Leftovers

Today I’m sharing another card I made using leftovers from other projects. I may have cut more than I needed at the time, or I may have changed my mind about the paper color or something else. The pieces were perfectly good, just not for what I was working on at the time. So I kept them for when I can use them. I remember I decided to use a different embossing folder after trying the Layered Leaves Dynamic folder, but the Layered Leaves design was perfect for today’s card. The only parts of this card I didn’t take from my pile of leftovers are the Early Espresso card base and the Whisper White cardstock on the inside.

Here’s what I made:

How Sweet It Is Sweets For You Card

I have been playing with the How Sweet It Is suite of products a lot lately, and why not? It’s adorable and fun. The colors are bright and cheerful. I used it to made today’s card with confetti dots and lollipops that says Sweets for You. I used a piece of the Organdy Ribbon Combo pack that has now sold out. If you didn’t get it in time, you can easily replace it with one of the many other ribbons we have. I would suggest the Pineapple Punch 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon.

Happy Tails Flowing Fountain Friend Card

Today’s card is easy and simple. It features the Happy Tails bundle, Flowing Fountain stamp set, Pretty Label Punch, Be Mine Framelits Dies, and Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The tiny hearts were leftover from other projects. I like to keep cute little pieces that fall out of die cuts. These came from the multi-heart die in the Be Mine Framelits.

Sweetest Thing Happy Birthday Card

Today I’m sharing another fun card I made with the Sweetest Thing stamp set, Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies, and How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper. I just love the colors in this set. They’re all so fun and happy. I used a scrap of Pineapple Punch cardstock – right out of the scrap drawer – for the sentiment, continuing my quest to use up a bunch of my scraps. I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color in the candies. While Gorgeous Grape is the purple used in the paper, I used a Highland Heather marker instead, because I thought the Gorgeous Grape would be too dark in this instance. You could use Gorgeous Grape with a Blender Pen to lighten it up.

  • How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
