Using Up Scraps!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

The other day I shared a card that had several Thin Cut heart cutouts.  The insides of the hearts were just laying around on my craft table.  I picked them up this morning and had an idea for another card.  The colors fit with the Dreamin’ Big paper collection by Close To My Heart, so I grabbed my adhesives and went to work.

I used the retired Beyond Awesome stamp set for the sentiment, layered a zip strip over some black glitter paper and popped up a few of the hearts and the arrow.  I love it when a project comes together so easily–makes me think I actually know what I’m doing!!

Another Thin Cut Idea!

Hello Friends!

Yesterday I shared a couple of cards I made with the “thanks” Thin Cut and today I’d like to show you another fun way to use your Thin Cuts.  This time I used strips of Shimmer Trim to make a colorful and dramatic “hello” cut.

I used the whimsical Dreamin’ Big paper collection to make this card. The black mats make the colorful paper stand out even more.  Black, Aqua, Gold and Red Shimmer Trim were chosen to coordinate with the colors in the paper.

I adhered layers of Shimmer Trim to a scrap of white cardstock, then positioned the Thin Cut over the strips and ran it through my Cuttlebug.  The paper and Shimmer Trim were quite thick, so I had to run it back and forth several times.  In the future I will put the Shimmer Trim strips on a piece of thin paper like vellum instead of cardstock.

The resulting cut is quite festive and fit nicely with the bright colors in the Dreamin’ Big paper.  I’m sure I will use this technique again very soon!
