Paper Scraps Cards – Quick, Simple & Versatile!


Hi stampin’ friends! I’m back today with two more card ideas to help you use up your paper scraps. Don’t bin ’em- let’s create something beautiful with this week’s Card Sketch Blueprint. If you missed yesterday’s adorable spring card idea and Sketch Tutorial, find it HERE


Today’s cards feature the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper and coordinating Needle & Thread Stamp and Die Bundle… personal favorites!


Notice how many colors are in this paper? That means YOU have lots of options for color-matching!

  • 12 sheets of 12″ x 12″ paper, 2 each of each double-sided design featuring photographic imagery of hand-stitched embroidery
  • Factoid: These designs were hand-made by very talented artisans commissioned by Stampin’ Up!, then photographed to create this beautiful paper! You’re looking at the real deal?
  • For easy creating, get the color-matched 24-sheet Needlepoint Nook Cardstock Pack that includes 8 sheets each of Balmy Blue, Blushing Bride and Old Olive cardstocks

This second card takes a little creative license with the design. Instead of creating a “nest” with twine, I’ve used the round form in the center of the sentiment panel to mimic the shape. Since it’s also wider than it is tall, it creates a similar feel to using a tag. The butterfly makes a quick and easy image focal point. Did you know the BUTTERFLY DUET Punch will punch this stamped image out? No fussy cutting needed- wooHOO!!!


This card is super quick and easy to make! The supplies and directions are the same as the first card, with the exception of these items:

  1. I love your simple, quick cards, Tammy! So pretty. I love the complicated cards and pin them often… but the ones I actually make are these. xoxoxo, Krista
