punched embossing powder...

HUH???

here's another fun...
 super simple way

choose an embossing powder color and the coordinating ink...

I'm using orange blossom archival ink for this sample...

ink a scrap of manila cardstock 
with the archival ink, 
sprinkle on the embossing powder
heat to melt...

then use a mini punch to make custom embellishments...
that punch is an oldie...
I have several...
cheap...
I think $1.00?...
but any mini flower punch will do for this tag...



add the mini embossing powder flowers 
to change up the tree stamp...

just in time for spring...
we have a flowering tree!


like I said...
super quick...

almost free, 
since we're using up scraps...


and it changes up the tree stamp...

I like to use the black sakura glaze pen to add a dot to accent the tiny flowers...


that little heart is this new tim Sizzix die...

these minis are a great way to use up tiny scraps of  magic mat board...





have a GREAT Monday!

it's a perfect day to...

make art!

Justification for hanging onto scraps! Hurray!!! I really like that sentiment on there as well. So many people need to hear that type of encouragement.

Cute idea ... love it ! I punch my scraps and save them in embroidery floss plastic container... then throw the remain scraps away. Large scraps go in an accordion file smaller scraps are punched ( I try to do this after projects when I'm clearing my table). Now BEFORE I started following blogs and I had more time I'd make cards right away with left over scraps and file them in a box ... ready for when I needed a card :)

That's perfect, I love the saying. I have way more to do today than I can get done, so I will just keep telling myself this and be happy with what gets done.

I'm baking for our church's rummage sale bake table today, but if I get to create something other than cookies....I'm going to create some of these little embellishments. Butterflies would be fabulous, too! AND I have a ton of scraps needing to be used. Thanks for a great idea.
