10MSPC

Can you tell that there have been lots of misted project scraps ending up in my scrap pile lately? Even the scraps turn out to be too pretty to toss. (These scraps came from some Chalkboard collection mists from Tattered Angels. Same idea as the orignal mists, just more opaque. I really like them.) And, bonus, misted scraps are even better because they're already dry. Which works for me :) and the 10 Minute Scrap Pile Challenge. I paired this one with a Martha Stewart punch and a sentiment from Papertrey's Out on a Limb Sentiments set. I punched a continuous line of birds on a wire from True Black cardstock, then just a single little birdie from White. I trimmed the white birdy out and rounded his little booty, then stuck him on. I also trimmed the overhanging tail from his birdy buddy to the left so that I could snuggle the sentiment right up underneath the "wire." I love splitting sentiments up like that. Makes them go further and puts a new spin on them. Have you made any 10 minute cards from your scrap pile lately? Leave me a link so I can drop by and see! {You Mean the World} card Stamps - Out on a Limb Sentiments (PTI) Ink - True Black (PTI) Cardstock - White & True Black (PTI) Punch - Martha Stewart Mists - Cornflower & Peacock (Chalkboard collection by Tattered Angels)

I LOVE that you create projects from your scrap pile. I have been on a real kick to use up my scraps .. but I have so many I might never get them all done. I am so happy you've joined the PTI team!! I'm looking forward to all your contributions!
