Hello everyone! Today I have a fun project where I used three 6X6 pattern papers to create 6 cards! This project was inspired by "Call Me Crafty Al". Her Youtube channel is all about using up your stash to create loads of cards. You can download Alicia's amazing "Sheetload guides" to create these cards yourself for free! If you are interested in busting your stash of hoarded pattern paper just like me, you will not regret checking her out HERE!
I downloaded one of the free printables from February 2022 where the sketch called for 6X6 paper pads. Speaking of paper pads, ScrappyTails has limited edition card kits available. The "Harvest Blessings" card kit is so well curated and is loaded with lots of wonderful stuff — a 6X6 Wild Sunflowers stamp set, 6X6 Layering Sunflower Stencil set with coordinating die, a beautiful Harvest Wheat die set, a pack of yellow and orange flat back pearls, and a full sized Harvest Blessings 6x6 paper pad.
I took three different designs from the "Harvest Blessings" 6x6 paper pad and following the instructions from the print out, I cut them accordingly. I also cut out mattes from coordinating solid color card stock. Once every piece was cut, I set my papers aside.
For the main focal point on each card, I used the sunflowers from the Wild Sunflowers stamp set. I stamped the sunflowers onto Bristol Smooth card stock using black pigment ink. Then I colored them in with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Using the coordinating dies, I die cut each sunflower.
The cards were easy enough to assemble and I love how bright and happy they look! I still have so much paper left over from the beautiful paper pack. But now that I discovered Call Me Crafty Al on Youtube, I am eager to bust my paper stash and try out the different sketches she offers every month. The Scrappy Tails Harvest Blessings card kit is also a great way to make quick and easy cards!
