Use It Up: It All Started With A Purple Elephant

 Just so you know I do stamp with current products still, here's an adorable baby card! This one happened because I had the purple elephant stamped and punched! 



Both elephants and the bunch of balloons (they're fussy-cut) are on Dimensionals so they stick up through the frame of the card base.


Colors: Balmy Blue, Gorgeous Grape, Mint Macaron, Whisper White

Use It Up: The Last Of The 2017-2019 In Color Scraps Thank You

There's no stamping on this card, but it used up the last of some little pieces of recently retired In Color card stock I had in my scrap box! Woohoo!


Colors: Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Petal Pink, Whisper White

The squares are 1 1/4", so together they are 3 3/4 x 5".

Use It Up: Good Morning Magnolia In Lots Of Different Colors!

It's fun combining new stamp sets and dies with old colors! These four cards are the same layout with the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and Magnolia Memory dies. I love this big flower! I've been stamping it and coloring it in, but decided to stamp on colored scraps of retired card stock, cut them out, and put them together to make these gorgeous flowers! I have the colors listed below each card: flower, leaves, background.


Powder Pink (retired In Color), Tranquil Tide (retired In Color), Mint Macaron


Fresh Fig (retired In Color), Emerald Envy (retired In Color), Soft Sea Foam


Berry Burst, Emerald Envy, Sweet Sugarplum (all retired In Colors)


Rose Red (retired), Emerald Envy (retired In Color), Blushing Bride
I used the Ruffled Embossing Folder on this one and just realized it's not current anymore! 

Here are all four of them together:


I don't know if there are actually flowers in these colors, but that's the fun of stamping- you can make things whatever colors you want!


I don't have the Emerald Envy ink pad anymore, so I used Call Me Clover ink on the Emerald Envy leaves.

Use It Up: Vibrant & Varied Vases With Lemon Lime Twist

I had these vases stamped and punched out and the Lemon Lime one was on the stitched rectangle piece already. I also had some little scraps of Lemon Lime card stock, so I combined them and came up with these two cards. I love using things up!


"Thinking of You" is from Wonderful Romance, which was in the 2019 Occasions Catalog.



Colors: Basic Black, Balmy Blue, Gorgeous Grape, Lemon Lime Twist (recently retired In Color), Pacific Point, Whisper White

Use It Up: Healing Hugs Itty Bitty Greetings Fun Fold

 Last spring I did a card with this layout as the Make & Take for our monthly Stamp Share. I don't remember if this was a possibility for that or just a random card I started. It was put together with the Designer Series Paper, Glimmer paper, and ribbon on it. I stamped the flower and leaves and fussy cut them, then added the circle on the bottom to hold the flaps closed.
