30 day Use Your Scraps challenge - Day 30 - All that's left

It's the last day of my 30 day scrap challenge and I will post the rest of cards I made during these 30 days and didn't post. 
Can't say I used up all my scraps, but I got into a habit of using them and going into my sorted scrap box first.

First we have 3 simple Easter cards made with images colored long ago and left with the scraps.
Papercraft Challenges - All The Critters



Birthday card using rose from Flourishes, colored with Prismacolor Pencils and SU sentiment 
Crafty Cardmakers - Flowers 

LOTV boy birthday card

another Penny Black card using the same image as couple days ago

watercolored image from a very old SU set
Use Your Stuff - Do You Believe in Magic 
My Time To Craft - Pink & Girly

this is the second take on Floating Frame technique

some images still got messed up by Press 'n' Seal so I stamped them again and covered the ooopsies

no stamping on this one - background is a piece of SU patterned paper colored with Prismacolors

30 day Use Your Scraps challenge - Day 27 - Painted Season Floating Frame

Day 27 of my scrappy challenge bring s a new experiment. I tried Jennifer McGuire's floating frame technique and here is the third attempt :)


I used my new Painted Seasons stamp set and dies. colors are Blueberry Bushel, Tempting Turquoise, Lemon Lime Twist and Granny Apple Green. Sentiments are also from SU
First attempt ended with Press N Seal - ripping the top layer of die cuts of, so then I didn't press so hard and was careful when removing it. It's a bit fiddly technique, but the results are pretty cool.

For the stamped images I recycled lot of white cardstock that had something else stamped on the other side - you know when you are trying to stamp the perfect image and you smudge it and put it aside for future use. Just make sure it's a good quality CS for this technique - it does seem to make a difference for Press N Seal

Challenges:
The Flower Challenge - Use your latest stamps/dies
Inkspirational - Use Your Stash
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
