Good morning!! Today, is Thrifty Thursday over at My Creative Time.
We are to create any project- card, scrapbook page, or anything, using scraps/leftovers or recycled items.
I decided to create a card with scraps I have in my scrap bin. I need to get better at using my scraps and this will really help me out! My bin is overflowing! LOL!
So here is what I came up with using my scraps along with everything I already had on hand.
For the card base, I used a freebie from KaDoodle Bug Designs: Hexagon Shaped Card. Unfortunately, it is no longer free but you can still purchase it. Instead of using the cut file's small hexagons, I used the MCT: Stitched Hexy Dies middle sized one. I found several coordinating scraps to cut them out of. Then I added white pen stitching and twine to the top.
Next, I cut the little bee girl out from SVG Cutting Files: Cute as Can Bee File set. I stamped her face using Peachy Keen Stamps: The Moodies Face Assortment. I colored the eyes with a Copic Marker and chalked her cheeks. I also added glossy accents to her bee hat (though it doesn't really show in the picture). I finished by added a few white gel pen accents to her hair and body.
I created the flower by using the shamrock die from MCT: You're My Pot of Gold Stamp Set and MCT: Stitched Daisy Die. I just layered several shamrocks together to create the flower. Then I used the stem and center from the daisy to put it all together. I really wanted to use the daisy but it was a little too big compared to her. I added glossy accents to the center and then put clear glitter on top.
For the sentiment, I cut out a banner from MCT: Vintage Stitched Label Die out of Kraft paper. Then I cut out a smaller banner from the MCT: Chocolate Greetings Stamp Set. Then I stamped on the sentiment from the same set.
I finished by cutting out two small size hearts and one medium from the MCT: Stitched Layering Heart Dies. I then added them in various spot on the card.
