Let’s Recycle!

OK I had fun today with this challenge…As part of the Rubber Cafe Design Team I was challenged to create a card using the color teal, something recycled, dimensional foam tape and of course their stamps. Easy Peasy! I usually tend to work with “warmer” colors like orange and pink so teal would be fun and as of recycling I saves some cute clear gift bags form my girls birthday party that I die cutted (is that even a word?) and added to the front. I white embossed the Framed Heart stamp then colored the back with Bic Mark-its and sharpies. Since Vellum is non porous other markers may not dry. So I wouldn’t have to worry about adhesive showing I stitched all of my translucent elements down.

Stamps: The Rubber Cafe, Paper: My Minds Eye, Color: Bic Mark its, Sharpies

I stamped a flat clear button and colored the back with sharpies as well.

Here is a quick version where I didn’t color the vellum.

And now for a quickie!

Other than the translucent gift bags I also recycled beads form a tiera that my puppy chewed up…don’t get mad, get the camera (It’s now my mantra!) 🙂

I used all of my new Rubber Cafe stamps on these projects: Lace Flower, Paisley Border, Framed Heart and From the Heart.

Have fun recycling and Happy Crafting!
