More Leftovers

Yesterday I shared what can happen when I have leftover packets from a Card Club.  Today I have another card that we made, along with what I did with the "leftovers".

This was the card we all created at our Card Club.  This uses the beautiful hostess set, Tranquil Tulips, which we stamped in Real Red and Old Olive.  The card base is Real Red, with a layer of Basic Black.  Then the front is Whisper White.  There is also a 1" piece of Vellum cardstock, on which we stamped the sentiment from Butterfly Basics.

So on to my craft room and what else I did with the pieces:

Notice anything different?  It's pretty much the same card, but I needed an anniversary card, so I just changed the sentiment.  I also stamped the leaves differently, and I added a Black Rhinestone on the front.  

But then...

I decided to go a little Christmas-y.  Same measurements, but I exchanged the Basic Black layer for Garden Green.  

This is a super-simple card, one which you could recreate lots of in a short period of time.  It uses stamps from the new Christmas Quilt set, and the only thing that is dimensional is the little star, which I cut out with the Quilt Builder Framelit dies.  I adore that little tree!

For my last card I went rogue.  I saw a sample by Connie Stewart, and loved what she did, but I wanted a Christmas card, so I changed up the colors:

How fun is that?  This has the same Real Red card base, but it's covered with a piece of Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper.  And I changed out the Basic Black again for a layer of Emerald Envy.  But the basic layout is the same as the original.

I punched leaves using the Leaf Punch and Real Red, Emerald Envy, Calypso Coral and Lemon Lime Twist.  The red scallops were cut with the die from Seasonal Layers Thinlits dies.  And it's all wrapped up with luscious Emerald Envy Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  

So what do you think?  Good use of my leftovers?  I think so!
