Welcome to the UKS Spring BlogHop! You may have come to me from Nabview.
If you lose your way, or have dropped in on me directly and want to follow the hop, you can see the full list with all the links here (link to UKS thread -http://www.ukscrappers.co.uk/boards/...d.php?t=339546)
This post is the first time I am participating in a UKS (UK Scrappers) bloghop. Please be gentle with me if this isn't how it should be. I have read up on the rules and think its ok :)
Today the card I am going to share with you has been made up using the off cuts from a scrapbook page. Now if your anything like me you will spend ages (Even days) making sure your papers all 'go together' when making up a scrapbook page. SO after spending all that time getting them to match, it is easy to use the off cuts to make a card, save time filing the papers away again.
I started off with a 7x5" card blank.
I then chose a complementary plain cardstock (in this case Kraft brown)
I matted the patchwork paper onto the kraft brown, both gently inked with Old Paper Distress ink.
This was then added to the card blank
I then took a strip of paper that was an off cut which was just under 6" long.
Matted it onto the kraft brown.
Again gently inked both with Old Paper Ink.
This next piece of patterned paper was gutted from under a photo on the scrapbook page.
Again this was matted onto Kraft brown.
Again both inked with Old Paper.
The last picture show the final card.
The image was stamped and coloured with Promarkers.
This was then die cut with Nesties Labels 11.
Whilst still in the die, this was inked with Old Photo distress ink.
I hope you have enjoyed your blog hop today, and it has helped some of you.
I have found that by using the same coloured card for the mats and using the same colour for the inking this will tie the papers together and help the coordination of the card.
