Thanks for hopping along with the Color Fusers today where I am sharing a card made with a scrap buster technique and the new In Colors.

New colors are always an exciting part of every new Annual Catalog. And tomorrow, the new catalog will launch. Not only do we have these beautiful new In Colors, but this year there is a whole color refresh!

I can’t wait to create with our fresh color line.

It can be tricky to include 5 colors on a project, but I thought this scrap buster technique worked perfectly to bring them all in. I have already been busy creating with the new In Colors, and have plenty of scraps. This technique is great for using up strips.

Scrap Buster Technique

When your scrap piles get the best of you, pull out strips of all different colors and create some focal pieces. This technique is so easy. First, start with a piece of Basic White cardstock. Next, arrange strips of cardstock on white layer to completely cover the white, and adhere in place. Liquid multipurpose glue works best for this. Finally, trim off what extends beyond the edge of the white cardstock. You can now use this piece for a layer or to die cut pieces for your projects.

To Create This Project

  • 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ Moody Mauve card base, scored at 4 1/4″
  • 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ Basic Black
  • 4 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ Basic White
  • multiple 1/2″ strips of various cardstock scraps

Fold card base in half and burnish well. Stamp sentiment from Biggest Wish stamp set in bottom corner with black ink. Stamp plus image randomly on card front in Moody Mauve ink. Die cut scalloped edge on black cardstock layer using the Scalloped Contours dies. Add liquid glue to white layer. Cover with strips of cardstock scraps, completely covering white layer. Trim anything that extends beyond the white layer. Adhere to black die cut layer using dimensionals. Tie a black twine bow around strip layer, then adhere to card base with dimensionals. Embellish as desired with black dots. Stamp desired sentiment inside card in black ink.

Thank You
