City Crafter #250


It's Tuesday and that means 
a new challenge at the City Crafter
 My dear and sweet friend Ros is our host 
and she picked the theme "Use it up".
Create a card or project using mostly items
 from your scrap stash :) 
And tell us what they are.

Our Guest Designer this week is OriBella
you can find more of her lovely projects on her blog.

My take on the theme:
I use of lot of white cardstock.
 After the huge Christmas order from last year
 there were loads of scraps; all from white cardstock. 
They came from cards that were not perfectly stamped. 
I cut the front and kept the strips from the front that were not stamped
 (perfect for fishtails!) 
and I also kept the "back" of the card. 
The back of the card is a perfect fit to a cover plate.
I also used a piece of darkblue cardstock.
And some patterned snippets of a paper 
pad from Little Yellow Bicycle. 

A card with lots of white and a few touches of color. 
This is how it turned out:

On our blog you can find more inspiration from 
our Guest Designer and the other team members.
The winner will be able to join us as a Guest Designer.
I am looking forward to see what you come up with;
 thanks for stopping by!

LOVE the quilted look to this, Stella! So adorable!
Love this 'quilted' look, Stella. I imagine it to be a real quilt, in a whitewashed bedroom filled with beautiful morning light.

Bet your sister Jacqueline LOVES this one!
