Fabulous Freebies

The card challenge this month over at Scrapology is to use freebies.  I am very good at using the free papers that come with magazines but rarely ever use the stamps and images that are often included with the free paper packs. 

I started playing around with the free MME papers that had come with a recent issue of Creative Cardmaking and I cut out some of the images that I thought would work well together.  To make them a bit more sturdy I glued the images to white card (also a freebie as it was the back of an Easter card we had received), then cut them out and inked the edges.  I then remembered that I had a stamp that I hadn't used yet that had come as a cover gift with Creativity magazine, that would work really well with the cut out images.  I don't usually buy this magazine but whilst on holiday last year a craft shop had a load of back issues reduced to a £1 each and I had picked this one up as I quite liked the stamp and I don't have many male themed stamps in my collection.

Supplies used
  • Papermania Chronology stamp
  • MME free papers and images
  • Stampin' Up oval punches
  • Personal impressions sentiment stamp
