Using Neutrals for my Cards

I love creative challenges and I have said before that
working in a scrapbook store for 12 years had me using
alot of patterned paper all the time but since I have
been using all the new beautiful dies that Spellbinders has
been creating I have started to switch to more simple papers.

Today I am just using 2 neutral paper colors: tan and cream.

I used Decorative Labels Eight for my card and just cut out
pieces of each and layered them with foam dots. The embossing
stands out so much better on it and all I needed was to add
a pretty ribbon, a flower and I added some wooden leaves
from Prima that I inked ever so slightly with brown chalk ink.  
The pearls are from Want2Scrap and they are the best and 
come in a jillion colors it seems like.  You can order online too
if you can't find them in your local store here....

I have been really busy this week creating lots of fun
things to share so be sure and check back for
more fun inspiration using my favorite SB dies!

Have a really wonderful day....


  1. You are right, those dies don't need patterned papers - it would be too busy.

  2. Yes I agree, the plain papers really bring out the beauty of these guys..gorgeous card! Carole Z xx
