Saturday's Scraps

Today, I woke up with the intention of stamping and using up some scraps. As soon as I sat down, the power went out! Arghhh! Well, I used natural light and the scraps on my table as well as some pieces that I had already run through my Big Shot and I came up with a few cards. This first card uses the Argyle pattern of Ellison's Big Impressions texture plates. I ran it through my Big Shot using the multipurpose platform and the Big Impressions starter kit. I then DTP'd some Bashful Blue ink over the embossed image to bring out the design a bit. I then used a scrap of Stampin' Up!'s DP plus the Happy Harmony Sell a Bration set.

I'm not quite as fond of this second card, although it does look better in person than it does on the screen. I used the Paisleys Texture plate by Ellison in my Big Shot. I DTP'd Bashful Blue ink on the embossing to bring it out a bit. Then I added a scrap of Stampin' Up!'s DP, a little gingham and velvet ribbon and my new stamp set, Polka Dots and Paisley! Stampin' Up! sent all of its demonstrators a Christmas gift and the gift was this new stamp set! Woo hoo!
