Without You

CLICK HERE for DL.ART Thankful Thursday #148 Challenge "RED"

Hi Everyone,

I have a fun card today. I am using the 6x6 paper pad American Crafts XOXO. I can't believe how many cards you can get out of a single pad like this and there are always those little bitty scrap pieces. Let me ask you this. What is the smallest scrap size you save, just in case?  You know what I am talking about. You look at the little piece of paper 1" x 2" and you say to yourself, should I keep it? or should I throw it out? Or do you save a whole scrap box of paper 12" x12" x8 thinking you will use all those scraps  and then when it is full, just throw the whole thing out?

Anyway here is my card for today.

After I glued the buttons down with the Xtreme adhesive I realized it looks like they spell BOO, unfortunately I used the Xtreme adhesive there is no getting them off now without ripping the paper
(pssssst...  don't tell anyone), so I will just go with mixing the two holidays.

Stamp: Unity
Ink: CTMY Cranberry
buttons: my stash
Ribbon: offray
Sequins: Verve
Tombow: Xtreme adhesive

  3. This is just gorgeous,thanks for the fab comments and becoming a follower of my blog. I am now following

  4. Your card is wonderful! If I am really tying to see how many cards I get out of a 6x6 paper pad, I save all the scraps and at the end, I create a couple cards that I make a background that is covered with those scraps, then emboss it with an embossing folder and pop a sentiment on the lower right corner. If I am not playing a mind game like that one with myself over the scraps, I just throw them away when they get anything less than probably 1x4".

  5. Like the card with the wonderful embellishments. I save mostly anything 1" x 1" or larger scraps. The 1" x 1" are perfect for punches.

  6. Wonderful card. Love the simple look of the card.

  7. Pretty card! perfect for valentine's coming up!

  8. Love those cute wee buttons! Great card!

  9. This is such a sweet card!! I take my very small scraps and die cut small flowers from them. I have a lilac die cut set with two sizes of small flowers. If the scrap is too small for one of is definitely too small to save!! lol.... I am way too much of a saver!

    Thanks for your sweet comments on my projects today, Diana!

  10. Ahaha! I know this card was meant for me! I feel the same way, my life would suck without you in it! I need this stamp! Great card~ If I have a small piece of scrap paper I grab a punch, and then add it to my stock pile! Thanks for joining us over at the DoubleClick Skittles Challenge! DT Member Carri~Abusybee

  11. Hi Diana. I keep most of my scraps too. But I really do need to dig into them more and use them up. Very nice sentiment and card.

  12. Love love love this! LOVING the colors and that sentiment!!!!!!

  13. What a fun card, but I don't see the word "boo" with the buttons! I see a cute trio of embellishments! As for the snippets - I have a 12x12 container of cardstock scraps, and a 12x12 container of dsp scraps. I draw from them often, but they don't seem to be getting any smaller, so I fear one day I'll take the smallest and toss them! I hate making decisions :)

  14. This is so cute! I could see my son Brian giving this to his girlfriend.

  15. This is such a fun, bright, happy card! I love that sentiment, it just makes me smile :)

  16. There are times that I will keep a small scrap or a thin scrap to make little hand cut banners or little tags, sentiments to put on cards. They usually have to be something I can use again then everyone in a while I go through my small scrap pile and recycle stuff I haven't used up or no longer will use.
    Beautiful card too
    Hugs Nikki

  17. Love your CAS card.... Thanks for joining DoubleClick Skittles Challenge~

  18. Cute card--I didn't notice the boo until you pointed it out.

  19. Cute, cute card Diana! Love the sentiment:) As of last fall, I don't keep scraps smaller than 3x3! My scrap bin was just getting to full so I tossed it and started over...did I just say that?!

  20. Cute card! (I never notice the "boo" until you mentioned it)
    I have so many scraps but can't seem to throw them away!
    Thanks so much for playing along with us at TMS #283!

  21. Very cute card! I pretty much save all scraps but very rarely find myself using them, I need to remedy that!

  22. This is just precious Diana! Love those little buttons. As for paper saving. I save all sizes if it's from a "stack" or series since those sets are matchy matchy. I've stopped saving anything less than 3" on solid colors(except white) Hope you have a great day!

  23. OMGosh I LOVE your card. The sentiment is perfect. Thanks for sharing.

  25. I love the sentiment and the cute little banners. I usually ct my scraps into the largest rectangle I can make. I have a drwer of warm scraps and one of cool colored ones.

  26. I just love these snarky stamps. Great card.
