SCRAPLINGS - Do you know what they are?

SCRAMBLE june 11 - 2 by kimba7669

Hi there ya'll.....Happy Monday!

Today's card is something that "was" new to me but not anymore.  I am part of a Flickr Group and the members have a game that we play every so often.  There is a hostess and she runs the game and it's called The 90-minute Scramble.  What that means is that you have to create a card in 90 minutes, using at least one HeroArts stamp...and sometimes there's a twist, like the card needs to have buttons, or it needs to have the color red.  So, this past Saturday's Scramble was to create a SCRAPLING....and this is what I learned....and I am sure you are wondering what a Scrapling is - a Scrapling is a card that is created with the left over piece of cardstock when you cut a 5.5 x 4.25 piece...you are left with a  1.25 x 4.25 piece and this is what I used to create the card above.  This was a challenge for me because it was hard to hold back on the embellishments, and so I decided to keep the stamped image as the "REAL" embellishment and  focal point.  You should give this a try.  What a great way to use up your leftover CS.  Shout out to Stampin' Sue for being such a great hostess and for this AWESOME idea called Scraplings!

I hope you learned something new today.  Isn't that what it's all about?  Learning something new and using it in a creative way....give it a try...I know that once you start creating Scraplings, you won't be able to stop....

Thanks for stopping by!
