Going Green

Hello friends,
It’s time for a new challenge over The Paper Players and my first post as a Guest Designer. This week challenge is Going Green – use a recycled item on your project.
It was quite a challenge for me to use something recycled on my card. Even though we do a lot of recycling at home, I never reused anything for my card crafting. Except one thing 🙂 – stamp pouches. I do collect and save them for my fast shaker cards! Those lightweight plastic bags are perfect for sewing pockets. And here I am, quick and simple shaker tag card.
Cut a tag – Studio Katia Dotted Shaker Tag, heart – Stitched Nested Creative Notebook.
Then cut and emboss front panel – SSS Bundle of Stitched Shapes, Tim Holtz Sizzix ARGYLE embossing folder.
Sew a pouch, shaped to the tag, add sequins – Studio Katia Lipstick Red and Frosted White.
Stamp a sentiment – Studio Katia Smarty Pants.
Adhere a tag to the panel, and panel to the card base – Docrafts 3D foam tape.

I do hope that you join us for this challenge! I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

    I love the embossing, and your sweet Valentine, Valentyna! This is something I do on occasion – just so the recipient can re-cycle the sequins!

    Welcome Valentyna – so lovely to have you guesting with us! What a great idea to recycle those little bags for shakers – a great tip from Michele above that then leaves these sequins to be easily used again too! Love your bright, white CAS Valentine – it really makes your sequins pop.

    OH MY GOODNESS! How many stamp pouches have I thrown away (looking in the trash can right now), when I could have been using them for SHAKERS! You are so clever! Thanks for the tip, and I just love your beautiful, clean, pretty card!!

    Valentyna what a fabulous shaker card! I love all the white space and the embossing. I couldn’t guess what your recycled item was, how clever to make a sequin bag from a stamp envelope!

    OH my gosh–how clever are you?! What a fabulously quick and easy way to make shaker cards. Love the pop of red and pink on your sweet card. So glad to have you on the team, welcome!

    Valentine, so happy you are on the team! WELCOME! I love the idea of using the stamp pouches for shakers! I need to try this. Sure would be a lot easier! Love all the white space and that pop of red! Have a great week! XXX
