Global Vlog Hop - Use Those Paper Scraps!


Global SU Vlog Hop June 30th, 2021 Challenge 

For this month's Global Stampin' Up! Vlog Hop, we were challenged to do a video showing creative ways to use paper scraps. This is how I used up some of mine...

Easy Strip-y Backgrounds 

I accumulate A LOT of 1/2" strips when I'm cutting layers for cards. If you do too, this is a great technique to use them up! 

For this card I picked some strips from my stash that would go together and mimic a sunset. 

Then I used the INSPIRED THOUGHTS bundle (INSPIRED THOUGHTS stamp set and INSPIRING CANOPY dies) to complete my card. Doesn't the black silhouette of the trees look great?! 

This picture shows a little peek of the tree theme I continued on the inside to give the card additional interest. 

I am loving the trees in INSIPING CANOPY dies, and the die that does the hills really gives the trees extra dimension. Be sure to check out the rest of the dies in this set here. The INSPIRED THOUGHTS stamp set has so many sentiments to choose from---this little "HELLO" is just the tip of what is included in this set. Check out those sentiments out here

Watch my YouTube video to see how I made this card. Click to watch it on YouTube, and be sure to "hop" to the next person in the YouTube description of my video.This is a Global Stampin' Up! Vlog Hop, so continue "hopping" from video to video to see more terrific ways to use your paper scraps (both cardstock and designer series paper)! 

These are the supplies I used for my card. They are also included in the "how to" video above, but I'm posting them here also.
