Stars and stripes

These cards are not a style that I would usually make but I got most of the supplies in a grab bag kit. 

A good thing about a grab bag is you never know what you will get and it can really expand your crafting.   Personally I really need to in the right frame of mine to craft with supplies that I usually don’t use. 


The cardstock and stickers came from a one grab bag and the striped ribbon came from the $5 grab bag I used to make the Happy Birthday 2 U cards I made here.

A few pearl accents were the only thing that came from my craft supply.


This card was quick and simple.  A few star stickers, a pearl accent and a ribbon.

Quick and simple and is a great card that can be used for women, men and children.


A few stickers and a birthday stamp finished this card.


Another neutral card with the star stickers and a small scrap that I stamp with a birthday sentiment and accented with a string of pearl accents.

Even thought I recently bought the grab bags it feels good to be using the supplies I have to make cards.  As I use the supplies I have it is easier to organize and see and use what I have. 

What supplies have you been using up lately?


I usually link to these fabulous parties:
