Scrap Suprise!



(using felt swirls from my QK)

(my swing card! sentiment swings- not lob sided!)
Whilst attempting to clear my craft table, I decided to make some cards along the way, using whatever bits and bobs I had on my table! This way you not only use up those tip bits (rather than storing them away for a rainy day...) but you end up putting things together that you may not usually!

Why dont you give it a go?- leave me a comment and let me see what you come up with! You might amaze yourself at the results- I know I was!

And here are some cakes I made for a friends baby shower- all thanks to Ruth for her inspirational use of using punches on coloured rice paper!!!

I like the cards Esther but I am DROOLING over the cup cakes. They are magnificent and punches are a great way of decorating them!
BTW my spotty papers are from Scenic Route. Surprise and Laurel collections
