If you haven't used 2-sided papers, here is a great example of how well they go together. I just loved this damask design on this October Afternoon print and the reverse side has this journal page print. The damask patterns on the front are rub-on designs by Plaid that I found at WalMart.
I mixed in a rub-on phrase by Scenic Route and this wonderful, romantic looking label by K&Co.
This card is a great testiment to how much it pays to use products from one company that coordinate. These papers just "want" to be used together and here is another example of papers that are 2-sided and how much fun it is to get both sides into the creation. The labels are stickers by SR.
I didn't need to cut out the leaves for my accent but I thought this made for a playful little line across the card to match the sketch.
And Sketch This has a wonderful sketch this week that I just had to use. I just might use it again a few times cause it is just so perfect for cards too. If you look at their blog you will see so many examples. Melissa Phillips recently did a little tutorial at Pursuit Of CraftYness blog on getting a "shabby" look on your creations and she talked about brushing the edges of papers with dry paint so I had to try it on my cut squares. This cutie is our newest niece!
