Scrap-tastic Challenge

Nichole Heady over at Papertrey Ink has challenged us to use our scraps to create something. I have TONS of scraps and I would love to say that I have them all neatly organized by color or something clever...but alas it's just a chaotic mess. So this was a great challenge for me.

I made a little tea gift and a matching card. These would make a great V-day gift for friends. I had this neat little wooden tray from some ornament packaging and realized that the compartments were perfectly sized for tea bags. Then used some stamped cardstock from my scraps to punch hearts. Last, I scored some transparency to create a sleeve to slide the tray into.

For the 4x4 card, I used a scrap of PTI sweet blush. I punched a matching heart from a post it note to create a mask. Then I stamped it with PTI's Polka Dot Basics II in SU! Real Red craft ink. I added a sentiment from PTI's Faux Ribbon set and a little epoxy heart from Colorbok. You know I love those one layer cards. ;o)
