6 Fast Cards Without Scraps!

Nathalia Castelon came up with a great cutting diagram/plan for using up almost every last scrap of 5 sheets of 12x12 paper to create 9 greeting cards! It's up on her blog and another version was featured in the Club Scrap Academy 8/07 Scrap Rap! I took the cutting plans and made them my own to make two different batches of cards. Here is a sample of each batch!

This set of cards uses Club Scrap's Egyptian 8/03 Green as a base, with Yahoo ALSB 2007 Kit's Green Print (a remixed design of Musical Interlude 12/05 on Wild Wild West 10/05 Green) with a Design Classic Retreat 2005 Print on Chocolate Shop 2/05 Chocolate.

On the medium card, I used the UM Stamps from Chapter One 6/07 and added Embellishments from Scrapbook Takeout including Passion for Paisley 3/07 Kit's American Crafts Annie Felt Flower and Elements Mini Brads with Adventures in Altering 8/07 Kit's Prima Press 'n' Petals. I also used Ranger's Distress Inks in Aged Mahogany and Peeled Paint along with Archival Ink in Coffee.

On the small card, I used the Chapter One 6/07 CSt UM Stamps on the inside with Ranger's Distress Ink in Brushed Corduroy. I embellished with Scrapbook Takeout's Passion for Paisley 3/07 Kit's American Crafts Annie Felt Flower and Elements Mini Brads.

On the larger card, I added small Brown POPs from Interior Design 11/06, The Written Word 11/05 CSt UM Stamps, and Journeys 6/03 Stencil along with Ranger's Distress ink in Peeled Paint & Cut 'n' Dry Foam along with some Offray Ribbon.

This set uses Egyptian 8/03 Gold as a base, combined with a Design Classic of Color In Black & White 4/06 Land Duplex Print on Ivory Elegance 12/06 Light Brown and Wings 7/05 Brown.

The tall card uses The Written Word 11/05 B&B UM Stamps in Ranger's Coffee Archival Ink. I applied Ranger's Distress Inks in Aged Mahogany, Brushed Corduroy, and Spiced Marmalade by pressing them onto my Non Stick Craft Mat and swirling them onto glossy paper with Cut 'n' Dry Foam. I finished the card off with some Offray Ribbon.

On the medium card I used the Color in Black & White 5/06 UM Stamps with Ranger's Distress Inks in Aged Mahogany and Walnut Stain. I added embellishments from Scrapbook Takeout including Passion for Paisley 3/07 Kit's American Crafts Annie Felt Flower, Journal Jammers 4/07 Kit's 7 Gypsies Jaune Flowers, and Adventures in Altering 8/07 Kit's Prima Press 'n' Petals.

On the small card I added Chapter One 6/07's UM Stamps with Ranger's Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and Coffee Archival Ink. I also added on Scrapbook Takeout's Passion for Paisley 3/07 Annie & Sadie Felt flowers and a found brad.
