Some Sweet Cards to Share

Wanted to share this really nature inspired card using a few Cheery Lynn dies.
You know I get most of my Cheery Lynn dies from Sweet Stamps- she carries such a great selection.
There always seems to be many extra pieces I cut when using these great dies.
So with the goodies on my desk I put together this card.
Fanciful Flourish, and  Lattice 2 Window Frame.
The background underneath is a piece of packaging  that held flowers.

Vertical Seasons Greetings from Sweet Stamps was used on this quick card. I used a piece of embossed poinsettia paper and matted . You might notice I also stamped a poinsettia on the bottom corner.Not sure I like that there, but It will be an extra card to have on hand during the holidays.

 My last card is a design I put together using some kit pieces my friend gave me. The kit piece was the stamped image, white card base, and pink strip.
I added some pink pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty and Pink check ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The bottom pattern piece was another section from packaging I colored.

Do you save packaging to use at a later time?
Have you used your stash?
