PTI Dec Blog Hop
Nothin' but scraps for this challenge! Details can be found here. I really enjoy reusing and recycling "trash" in my creativity so this was a really fun challenge for me. Especially since I'd gotten some awesome tissue paper in several gifts. And as usual, when I'm on a roll I can't stop with just one. Here is a trio of cards created with nothin' but scraps from Christmas day and my desktop.
This was the first one I played with. Just love the polka dot wrapping paper! Some tissue scrunched and ruffled for a border and a mat stack die cut (& matted) with a sweet sentiment.
Supplies: Cardstock & ink- TPC Studios, PTI stamps - Love Lives Here, die - Mat Stack 2
This is the second card I created. I used lots of PTI goodies on it. And despite the imperfect background stamping I think it's my favorite.
I layered 2 shades of pink tissue paper (courtesy of Victoria's Secret) and mixed in white & die cut 3 different butterflies from the layers. A little stitching up the middle & some long threads for antenna & the butterfly was done.
Here's more of a side view to see more of the dimension from just layers of simple tissue paper.

And how could I not totally fall in love with this striped tissue paper?? It was stuffed into a beautiful, bright red wine bottle bag with pretty red handles. That's one of the handles thru the middle. :) All that I needed to add was a quick, cute stamped image. I found that one of the dotted Vintage Labels fits perfectly in the TT: Valentines opening.
