Good morning! Lisa here to share with you a couple cards including this one with the beautiful Be A Unicorn Stamps and Fri-die that I made using some upcycled materials! I don't know about you, but I've been getting some beautiful credit card offer envelopes in the mail...lol! I open them and throw the insides into the shred pile and save those envelopes for crafty uses:
For today's cards I used the Heart Board Fri Dies, the Lovely Links Fri-Dies and the 4 Petals Fri Dies and cut them out of some of these envelopes:
So pretty... right??
I started this one by cutting the Bubble Box shapes from black and white cardstock. I stamped and embossed one of the sentiments from the Be A Unicorn set and then splattered some metallic watercolors over the top and set them aside to dry.
I stamped, embossed, and die cut the Unicorn from the Be A Unicorn sets. Then I used the metallic watercolors in white, gold and pink to color her in. Once she was dry, I darkened her eyes and nostrils using a black alcohol marker.
And the flowers and hearts from the pink holographic envelope were perfect to embellish!
I had a small red shiny envelope too and cut a few hearts from that and they were perfect for a quick Valentine card. This time I cut the Bubble Box from another upcycled material from some paper flower packaging... that pretty burlap looking piece would have otherwise ended up in the garbage!
I used the Love Ya Fri-Die cut from black glitter paper for this one.
And one more look at this one:
So thanks for stopping today! I hope I've inspired you to take a second look at things before you throw them away and use them in your creations!
Should you decide you just need to have some things from the shop, I have this for you:
