Creating treasure with recycling in less than 10 mtes!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Hump Day! as a collector of all things pretty, I've found myself keeping all the pretty packages of products I purchased for use on a later project.

I purchased this stamp set a while ago it's Kelli Panacci timeless and knew the package was too pretty to throw into the recycle bin. Instead I keep a collection just for such occasion..
My favorite to collect is Prima, Eksuccess, they are always so ornate with fun colours.

I created this treasure card using the packaging and Mypinkstamper sentiments, they are just pure fun..

Treasure card

  1. Stamp all over the base card. Trim package to fit card base, ink the edges, then adhere together.
  2. Trim clock from package, ink edges, stamp butterfly, adhere with pop dot glue.
  3. Cut pattern paper to fit bottom of card base.
  4. Stamp sentiment on a strip of paper, ink the edges, add rhinestone, adhere with pop dot glue.


Stamps :: Mypinkstamper (Family & Friends), Inkadinkado
Ink :: Colorbok Fluid chalk
Cardstock:: Paper source, Pattern paper Basic Grey
Embellishment:: Deja Vu

Have a great day,

Another beautiful card!!! I hear you...I not only spend more time collecting supplies (than creating), but I find myself saving EVERYthing (with the intention of altering or recycling on one of my projects).

Thanks for sharing,

Very nice card. I find myself always trying to use scraps when making cards. Just a little challenge to myself.
