Leftovers

I had all these scraps of card stock, ribbon, and die cut flowers laying around on my craft table and decided it was time to get rid of them - so, made a couple of really quick card.  I don't even like them - but DID get rid of some of the scraps.
I'm really thinking not only has my mojo taken a vacation but it's taken my entire brain with it!


This actually started out as a CASE of a card I saw on Pinterest....STILL hot sure where it went south!  About the only thing that was CASEd were the flowers!


This is a monochromatic card that I thought I'd enter over at Less is More (neutral colors).  I did add a little green to that grass - but oh so wanted to put a big splash of yellow or red or something on it! LOL!  I'll also enter it in the challenge at Sweet Stamps (Monochromatic).

Hope you have a wonderful day.......and thanks for stopping by.......

Love what you did with your leftovers! My fave has to be the water pump. I love the way you used just a hint of color on the grass! Perfect!!

I see nothing wrong with either card, I like them both! I love the crispness of the white petals agains the brown and the ribbon treatment of the second card I really like! Great cards Lynn!

How lovely are they... both so different but so likeable. Love the flowers on the first and the monochromes on the second. The metallic embelly looks awesome.

Lynn, what in the world are you talking about? These are great! And way to go making such pretty cards with scraps! I really need to start using all these scraps that accumulate in my craft room. I don't think your mojo has gone anywhere at all! Have a great day! :)

Doesn't it feel good to get rid of scraps? Especially love the second card and the little tags by the ribbon. I love just the splash of green.

Lynn McAuley said...

I know what you mean about those pesky scraps! You did a great job with yours in those beautiful blossoms!

Marilyn said...

These are gorgeous Lynn! I don't like to pick favourites but I love, love, love the waterpump card. That splash of green grass is perfect and the ribbon, tags & brad are the best!

Lynn, your use of leftovers is fabulous!

Shelly Schmidt said...

You are too hard on yourself....I love both cards and imagine if I rec'd a card and opened it, if either of these were inside they would put a smile on my face. Love the flowers and the layout and texture on card one, love the image and tags on your Monochromatic card. Thanks also for joining in at the Sweet Stamps challenge : )

Those beautiful daisies are so happy and eye catching, Lynn! What's not to like about that? I love the second card too. The framing for the pump is perfect and I love the ribbon and tiny tags.

NanaConnie said...

Oh, I love that pump image! It's a wonderful card. I'm working on CAS today and having the same instinct to add "just a bit more" but am resisting mightily. :-D Doesn't it feel good when you use up those left overs? It always makes me feel so righteous. lol

Chrissie said...

I'll close my eyes to the green Lynn!
It's a delightful card.
Thanks so much

Lol. Sorry you are struggling but I don't feel either card is that terrible, but we are always hardest on ourselves arent we?

Love the layered flowers on the first card an I like ow you attached the sentiment on the 2nd! Take a few days off if u think you need it. Don't let this craft stress you out :)
