Using up that Designer Paper cause I need more!!


Good Morning! Yesterday morning I went into my stamp room to clean it up, what a mess it was!!  As usual, I was putting away a few pieces of dsp and thought, you know if I want to buy more of this stuff I really have to start using up what I own.....so, my cleaning session quickly became a card making session!!!   I loved this dsp when I first saw it in the catalogue but wasn't that inspired with it once I received it. I just didn't like the vanilla and red designs, I tend to gravitate more to red and crisp white.  However, after working with the green palette in this collection, I decided I really liked it!!  Garden Green, Old Olive and Vanilla are really quite beautiful together. I loved the grey ribbon touch on the card above, that was my DD's idea and I have to say I really like the greens with the grey and vanilla, subtle and so pretty.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope your Tuesday is great!!

These are both great Christmas cards Debbie - I love that cute snowman! I have been trying to use up my stash of dsp as well, getting through it piece by piece!
