This and That Cards !

A little late posting because I wanted to make a batch of cards that featured the gorgeous DS papers that came in the This and That bundle ! There are way too many papers to use in the album so lots over to make cards with !!! Now, anyone that knows me will confirm that these colours are way out of my comfort zone but I have fallen in love with the kit - it's versatile, contemporary with a vintage twist and as my daughter so aptly put it contains colours which are muted brights ! 

I wanted to show how fabulous the papers are and have used the following stamps sets to add to the gorgeousness !!!
Blue Ribbon , Postage Due , That's the Ticket , You're Amazing , Papaya Collage , Alhambra ( builder )  Measuring Stick ( builder ) , Viola's Lace  ( builder ) .

I don't always - almost never - plan a card design ! I just make up elements and play around until I am happy with the layout ; the card or whatever project I am doing evolves. When something looks wrong it is usually because it needs an accent - either a colour or dimensional item - I always fiddle around until I achieve a balance ! For example - the above card was fine but lacked something - so , I added the washi tape top right and number sticker and the three circular stickers to the left and then it worked better !!! 
Happy crafting and have a great day day !!!

  2. Oh Jane, as you know not my usual choice of colours either, but seeing your creations has made me really excited about having a play. I need to order the stamp pads that match and I need that hexagon embossing folder! Get me a new order form ready! Please! Lovely cards Jane x
