Fall color grid

I just had to give this a try - with all the leaves I have punched out, I could make at least another ten of these and they are so easy!

I added some gems just to make it sparkle!

An enjoying pastime this Sunday afternoon.

Alcohol inks

Here I am using the Penny Black Flower Cascade stamp which has been stamped and embossed on glossy cardstock twice, once embossed in white and once embossed in gold. Choosing different areas I punched out three squares from the white part, three from the gold part and assembled to form a grid.

Can be used for different occassions.

Using up the scraps

So thankful when I can use up the scraps to make grid cards - and a card can always be a blessing to somebody.

And my second one using up all the blues and browns.

I hope you never throw the scraps away!

Home Decor Project in Grid fashion

Not squares this time but punched out Tags! It doesn't really matter what shape the grid forms, it's just the pattern and paper mix that gives a grid its effect. I loved making this!

I hope it gives you some ideas and inspires you to make one yourself, and if you do, I'd love to see it.
The tags are 5 1/2 by 3 1/4 cm, or 2 1/4 by 1 1/4 inch.

I had forgotten all about this card that I made sometime last year.

But as Spring is with us, it is relevant for this time of the year!

Postal Stamp

I stamped six times with a Postal Stamp from Hero Arts on a piece of text paper. I then did the same on patterned papers. I then cut out the centres and adhered to the text paper.

I added stamp stamping and a cut-out butterfly and prima flower.

Happy Sunday!

Two vintage grids

I always seem to use this stamp in January. Two recent grid cards in the vintage style. I have had good mileage out of this large stamp from Hampton Art.

 This second one is very busy but I love doing this at times.

and so you can see the stamp I used, this is a card I made last year around this time, it got sold on Etsy:

 I hope to have inspired you to save all the scraps, even the tiny pieces so that you can punch out squares and circles and just fit them all together to form a grid card!

Happy Sunday,

Christmas grid

Hoping you all  had a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year.

I did post this on my other blog but it really needs to be posted on this blog as it is an alcohol ink inchie card stamped and gold/white embossed.


Mix and match and added sewing

Another way to use up all the snippets and cut-outs which need to find a home. The added feature to this card is sewing, which I love to do ...
