CTMH Life Delights - Using up my Scraps!

Can't wait to attend the 3rd Calgary Crops all-day crop this Saturday!!  These ladies are such a blast!  (Note:  if you are in the Calgary area - be sure to sign up for our next crop on May 8th - details to come soon!)

I'm getting a few things ready to demo and prep for my make & take . . . and I thought this card design by Lisa Stenz was a perfect example for our theme this weekend which is "Spring Cleaning - Using up Your Scraps!".  So easy - use your trimmer or punch to make some squares out of your scrap patterned paper (my squares are 1 1/2" each).  Adhere them & then create stitching (faux or real) overtop for a patchwork look (my stitching is faux - - I used one of my ABSOLUTE favourite stamp sets - "Simple Stitches").   Isn't it pretty?

Materials Used (all Close to My Heart):
Life Delights Level 2 Paper Pack (retired)
Simple Stitches Acrylic Stamp Set
Happy Birthday Acrylic Stamp Set
Just Blooms Paper Flowers (dyed with re-inker)
Ink: Chocolate
