Monochromatic Scrap-Card

One of my scrap drawers was so overflowing that I couldn't close it any more! So I had to make some scrap cards! One of the designs I came up with was inspired by this MayMay Made It YouTube video. There are lots of other similar designs around on Pinterest.

 I had also seen this video from Jennifer McGuire, and made some Rainbow Cards with a slightly different design.  On these cards, I die-cut the word "hello" 4 times from black scraps then topped it with Accent Essentials. The Friend stamp was stamped with VersaFine Black and heat embossed with clear powder.  This design requires more long pieces.

When I finished 4 of the Purple Monochromatic cards, I still had a few smaller pieces left over, which I couldn't stand to throw away. So I cut a piece of 2.5 x2.5 inch white square and did the same mosaic design on this smaller piece.  I cut a dark purple background with the wonky-stitch rectangle. The sentiment piece was distressed with Perfect Plum, which just made it stand out better. Even though this card was actually just to use up the last little pieces, and was a total after-thought, I think this one ended up being my favorite! LOL

I was working to make a bunch of "hang-in there" style cards, so I just printed this sentiment on my 8.5" x 11" card stock numerous times and cut in half to make my card bases. I ended up with 8 of the Rainbow cards, and 5 of the Purple monochromatic cards.

I decided to participate in some Challenges this week, so I am linking to all the blogs that these cards work for. Thanks so much for visiting and I hope to you'll be back again soon!
