strips, scraps & Fly Free

This is my second post of the day. Please click here or scroll down to see my post for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #84. Thank! =)

Hello my friends! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Here are two cards that I made for the Let's Strip challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays and the Birthday Card and Thank You Card Challenges for Stamp It! Cards Week in the Moxie Fab World.

First up is a birthday card. The background is made by covering a piece of Rustic White cardstock with some pink and silver Japanese washi tapes.

The sentiment is from Movers & Shakers Sentiments set by Papertrey Ink. I am submitting this one for both the Let's Strip challenge at CAS-ual Fridays and the Stamp It! Cards Birthday Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

My second card is made using some color cardstock strips. I save almost every bit of the precious PTI cardstocks and I have lots of little strips like this sitting in my scrap pile, so I decided to pull them out and did a little paper weaving.

The sentiment is from Heyday Sentiments set by Hero Arts/Studio Calico. I am submitting this one for the Let's Strip challenge at CAS-ual Fridays and the Stamp It! Cards Thank You Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

Last but not least, I thought I would share the card that was published in the fabulous Stamp It! Cards Vol. 9 issue. If you haven't gotten your copy already, you have to check it out! It's full of amazing creations and I keep finding new inspiration every time I open this issue. The beautiful bird cage and butterflies that I used for my card are from Fly Free set by The Craft's Meow.

That's all for now. Hope you have a fabulous day, my friends! =)

I really like how you have taken the time to line up all those diagonal lines on the washi tape. Wonderful idea for the use of your scraps and love that image with the birdcage. Wonderful cards Alice.
