Using up the patterned papers!

Happy New Year! So sorry I haven't been around. I have had a lapse in creating cards but have been crocheting and making some home decor projects for my family, even forgetting to take a photograph. My third granddaughter was born on 27th December. Her name is Hanaë. All is well. René and I visited my family in England for Christmas and had a good time!

Just lately I have found the need to use up some patterned paper which just lie unused. I usually use up all of my craft supplies but haven't had the needed inspiration to make something with them. A card on Pinterest sparked an idea to use up papers which have been in my possession for several years. I will show some of them and hope you might also find some suitable stamps to use on the papers you have. The simple solution is to stamp over the top of the paper and white emboss, that changes the whole outlook.

This is one example. A nice piece of paper, but on its own, or with a sentiment, not very appealling. The white embossing lifts it up and passes in my book as a suitable card to send to somebody. I have linked up this card to the a2z Scrapbooking Blog here.

The same goes with this one,

and this one, which comes from the same sheet of paper as the first card.

So I hope to have given somebody an idea today!

Nice to be back, so now and then.
