Scrap Pile Saturday Challenge #4

Hi Friends!! This will be a quick post today because I need to go to bed! LOL! I'm pre-scheduling this post because we're heading to Disneyland today! Yay!! Anyway. . .let's get down to business! It's Scrap Pile Saturday Challenge again! How fun!

For those who are unfamiliar with this challenge. . .each Saturday I post a challenge that focuses on using up your scraps. .. you know, the one that you've been collecting for a long time and the pile is growing bigger. Yeah, that one! I post a challenge and all you need to do is create a card following the challenge.

I'd like to feature the participants cards from last week's challenge:

Gina Marie of Scrap Crazy created a pretty pink card using a CC Designs image.
Tina of Mommy Scraps Alot created a beautiful green card with a pretty bow.
Linda of Linanna Designs created a super cute dinosaur birthday card.
Tracey of My Creative Place created an adorable card with tons of circle elements (BTW, Tracey. . I wanted to comment your card but your blog don't have commenting option)

Now to this week's challenge:

Create a card using a stamp that you have NEVER used and to follow the sketch below!

Okay, here are the rules:

1. Other than your card base, the face of your card MUST be created using ONLY designer paper and card stock from your scrap pile. Do not cut up any new card stock or designer paper.

2. Embellishments added to your card MUST be from "opened" packages. Do not open up a new package or roll of ribbon, brads, buttons, etc.

I used my SU Forest Friends tree stamp. . .a stamp set that I bought at least a year ago but never inked, ever!! I'm not sure why. . .I just never had a reason to use the set. It's one of those sets that were on sale and I bought it because it was discounted! LOL!

I decided to create a simple design. . .my purpose was to use up my scrap designer paper and ink the stamp. I cut the label shape using my Cricut Expression and stamped the image by coloring the stamp with my SU Markers. That's basically it!

Anyway. . .I hope you'll play along this week! I really am having a blast creating these Scrap Pile Saturday challenges. It's been helping me to reduce my scrap pile and I hope it'll help you to reduce yours too! Come play along.

To play along, link your card via Mr. Linky below!!

Hope y'all have a wonderful Saturday!
