Now Playing: I finished the projects started earlier this week
Earlier this week I showed the process of working from my Parts & Starts bin to make a variety of cards from old junk mail, calendars, paint chips, and the like. I finished up a total of 6 cards from that session.
As a reminder, here are the scraps of things I started with:
This card was the one I finished that first day, without camera glare this time! It uses a travel brochure picture, large paint chip, strip of scrapbook paper scrap, printed cardstock, wire mesh, brads, seal from a Kahlua bottle, and a clear sticker, all on green textured cardstock. Only the brads and clear sticker are not 'salvage' items.
Card two uses a brochure illustration, a butterfly from a calendar cover, handmade paper, paint chip, blue tissue paper, and two cloth stickers. Although it does not show by looking at the front cover, the interior cardstock is bright orange. I left the paint color of the paint chip showing at the bottom as it was appropriate to the theme. On this card, only the stickers were not salvage.
Next is a card made with a coaster from the Olive Garden restaurant, monoprint leaf paper, paint chips (2), grosgrain ribbon, printed scrapbook paper with text, and a rhinestone brad. The leaf paper was left over from some prints I made myself some years ago so the ribbon and the brad are the only non-salvage items.
Next up is a card that uses a travel brochure illustration, paint chip, handmade paper, copper tissue, vellum, clear sticker, and metal tape. Originally the colors all matched the photo but the whole thing was too bright for my taste. So I ran vellum thru the Xyron and sealed the illustration behind it. Then the edges didn't stick together well enough so I added the metal tape to bind it. The vellum was scrap as was everything else other than the sticker and the metal tape.
Here's a funky little card made with a catalog illustration, scrapbook papers (2), and stickers - two mock-3D and two fabric. I cut the scrapbook papers with a variety of circles and finished off with round punches. Three of the punches go right through the front cover of the card. Only the stickers were not salvage items.
This is my least favorite card. It uses a travel brochure illustration, paint chip, tissue paper, scrapbook paper, brads, clear sticker, and gold metallic marker. The brads and sticker were not salvage items.
So, having finished up 6 cards from that session, all the bits and pieces are sorted back to their scrap bins and the worktable is ready for a new project.
What will it be.....
