The best thing about combining designer paper and quote stamps is that you can put together a great looking card quickly!  In my personal goal to actual use my designer paper instead of hoarding it,  I took some of my favorite  Basic Grey papers from their Periphery series and made this card.


The sentiment is from Timeless Quotes and was stamped in Palette Ink – Landscape.  The brad is from the Finishing Touches collection and I used a brown copic maker to tone down the coppery look. 

I used to think that I needed to save pretty paper for that perfect special occasion, then I realized each card I made was for someone special and that it is ok to use your supplies – that is what they are for!!!  So – take out that paper you have been saving and create somthing – you will be glad you did!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Your card is lovely, Nancy. I’ve recently started using my designer papers, stickers, embellishments, etc., rather than saving them for that “special project.” If, after all these years, I haven’t made that “special project,” what makes me think I ever will? In fact, I now let my kids use items from my stash. It adds fun to our homeschooling days, and their creativity often inspires mine.
