Using Up DSP Scraps To Make Birthday Cards

Stampin' Up!'s DSP packs are beautiful and fun and a joy to use.  I happily cut into the sheets and create cards, scrapbook pages, and 3D projects.  Then I look at the small mountain of various scraps leftover and they are just too gorgeous to throw away, but what to do with them?  Do you have this problem, too?  These two birthday cards show a way to creatively use them.

Both birthday cards use scraps from the Bird Ballad DSP pack.  In the first card, I used them to create a cake, complete with candles on the top.  The candles from the Birthday Backgrounds set got their dual colors from using markers to color directly on the stamp.  The stamp is actually longer but I wanted just three candles for my cake topper.  

The second card uses scraps to make a present, complete with whisper white baker's twine and a hand-cut tagged stamped with a flower from the Perennial Birthday set.  The large sentiment on both cards is also from that set.  Isn't the font FUN?

The DSP scraps idea and card layouts come from my amazing upline's Cheat Sheets Collections (a great design resource for cardmakers that offers layouts, instructions, and measurements).  

Think of all the fun combinations you could create with your DSP scraps!  I know you have them, so don't let them languish and go to waste.
