Missing you!

Hiya!  How goes the weekend?!  Well, I hope! :)   I have all kinds of Fall colored scraps laying around on my craft table and thought I would challenge myself to try to use some of them up!  I try to always hit up my scrap pile before cutting into a new piece of paper, but even with doing that it seems my scrap pile is always trying to take over my crafting space!  So, today's card is made entirely of scrap paper.  The base was even left over from a prior project!

I stamped the base with the word-y stamp from French Foliage and then just let the layering begin! The sentiment stamp is from Up, Up and Away.

I ran the layer of Very Vanilla and Soft Suede through the Square lattice EF to add some texture and visually mix things up some.

Circles, rectangles and mini banners...oh my!

I am especially excited about the flowers!!  I used the tiny little Christmas light punch from the new Merry Mini's punch pack to make them!  Five of them and a 1/2"  circle on top and there you have an adorable little flower!  I just love being able to get more than one use from a product.

The Details:
Stamps: French Foliage and Up, Up and Away
Paper: More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla
Ink: Soft Suede
Punches and Dies: Merry Minis, ! 1/4" Circle, ! 1/2" Circle, Square (to make banner tail), Itty Bitty Punch pack (small circle) and Apothecary Accents Framelits
Extras: Pearl and White Gel Pen


Hope that  you enjoy the rest of the weekend!  I will meet you back here soonest!  Have a stamp-y day!

Adorable! I like the colors and the embossing folder. I have the same problem with my scraps. I always try to use them up before wasting a full sheet but it doesn't always work out!
