Scraplings

Once in a Blue Moon challenges at Gingersnap Creations are always really good fun ... maybe because they only happen on a 5th Wednesday in a month and this is not very often (lol). This month is no exception: revisit and choose any prior Art Exchange theme. My choice is paint chip scraplings whose specs are:
Format: Scrapling - 1.5" wide x 4.25" tall, folded (must be complete, no fronts accepted)
Theme: Open
Supply to be Used: paint chips (or something close)
Media: Any but must include some stamping
I cut the scrapling from white slightly textured card. The scrapling is stamped with a Crafty Individual stamp and then layered onto balck card. The finishing touch is a little ribbon knot from my stash.

The longer I looked at the scrapling, the more I thought that it would be nice to try something different and use the paint chip sample underneath ...
LinkThe design was inspired by the new Artistic Outpost Christmas stamps. I first stamped the image onto Basic Grey patterned paper and then punched out the little Christmas trees. The panel is mounted onto the paint chip sample with thin foam pads. To finish it off I stamped the bow on patterned Basic Grey paper and cut it out, added some little stars (stamps from Elzybells) which I coloured with gold gel pen. The edges are slightly distressed and then very slightly covered with gold colour too.

Pop Over to Gingersnap Creations to see many more amazing creations and to join us. Happy Blue Moon!

Wonderful - I have never heard of a scrapling.....Both sides are awesome- the flower image is really nice, and the deer is great as well.

Both scraplings are great! Love the idea of using the paintchip behind the card. Brilliant!

Great scraplings. The top one is a beautiful design and a fantastic thought/ idea for the second too! I have not seen that done before. Well done.

Wow, this is beautiful! I wasn't part of the group when this was done a year ago so I especially liked looking back at the samples from them. The paint chips as backgrounds is a great idea.
