Saturdays with Sally: Cut it out!
Welcome to Saturdays with Sally, my monthly playtime here on the blog!
One of my favorite techniques with old stamped scraps is to do hand cut collage cards. And let's just say... I have a few scraps. Years and years worth of hoarding! Some pieces are stamped and others are painted with watercolors. I have always liked the look of hand cut art because it’s simply charming. And there's so much on Instagram and Pinterest now, it's easy to get inspired. One of my IG favorites is Lynn Giunta. Here's what she and others inspired me to make:
Simply take a piece of stamped card stock and start cutting. Begin with something simple like fruit or flowers. Randomly cut and start playing.
Use foam tape to get a lift, and add stamped words, gems, buttons, ribbons, etc. for embellishing.
I primarily used two sets for these cards and some large cling backgrounds. The great thing about this is NOTHING needs to be perfect. If you see a great piece of printed matter in a catalog or brochure, SAVE it.
I used Pearl Strings Bold Prints on both the flowers and berries.
You will be amazed at how easy this is, so start cutting!!
