One Idea.... Three cards!

I wanted to use a new die I had purchased from SSS, and ended up with two cards from it.  For the second card I pulled out an 8 X 8 piece of patterned paper and made two cards.  I thought that seeing as I had cut it up I may as well find a way to use it all in order to avoid adding to my pile of scraps!

So in total I got to make three cards from one idea:

This was the first card using that speech bubble die.  I added one of my favourite butterflies from Hero Arts.

So then I was left with the bottom white piece from the die cut so I used that at the bottom of the card you see above and introduced that patterned paper I mentioned, as well as a bird image from a Memory Box stamp ( I added some white accents with a gel pen on the bird).

And lastly I used the left over patterned paper and made this card, adding a stamped banner from Lawn Fawn and using another bird image from Memory Box.

I had an enjoyable time.

Have a fabulous day!
