Over at Die Cuts R Us the challenge is to use up any leftover valentines papers!!! Sound easy but . . . the card is not to be a valentines card!!! Thinking caps on this morning and this is what I came up with. The base of this card is actually waste cardboard that was supporting something I had sent through the post ( keeping in with the no waste theme ) I cut the cardboard to fit on the cover of a square card blank, then to make it a bit prettier I stamped the edges with some foam stamps that I had in my stash from QVC a while back! The leftover valentines paper comes from the new Bo Bunny love bandit collection ( so so cut ) I have stamped around the edges with fake stitches ( as I have no sewing machine or knowledge of how to use one ) again using stamps from QVC they are by HOTP. Onto the pattern paper I have mounted a die cut tag that I had free in a cardmaking magazine!!! The bird is a stamp from Imaginisce and I have stamped him firstly on more left over Bo Bunny paper, I have then die cut it with my scallop nesties. This is them adhered to the tag with 3D faom pads. The next layer is stamped onto DCWV texture cardstock then the final layer is a blue spotty card that I had free from a card magazine! The little tree/flower ( I can't decide which it is ) is made up from a scrap of blue card and some teardrop sequins that I had ( yes you guessed it ) free with a cardmaking magazine! The whole thing is finished off with a thank you rub on from letraset. So in a effort to use up leftover I have managed to use up lots of free bits I have been refusing to throw away!!! Thanks for looking!!!

Stacey your card is beautiful! Love all the soft pinks and your fake stitches look great! Every time I touch a sewing machine it decides to quit working : ) So I usually stick with fake stitching! Your blog is adorable!
