Pretty, Pretty Paper

I have a problem with paper. Pretty, pretty paper that I don't want to slaughter...I mean cut into...because it is so pretty. :) It only makes sense that this week's Use It Tuesday would be to cut into that paper, right? I mean, how can I make a fun challenge that would not be applicable to me and yet painful at the same time? ;)

I dusted off the DCWV Rockstar Mat Stack I have owned for longer than I care to admit and got to work. I chose this pretty, pretty piece with gorgeous flocking and layered it on a coordinating pattern out of the same pack! So I used 2 pieces of uncut paper! Yup, I am just a little proud of myself!

I would love for you to head over to Use It Tuesday and play along! Our challenges are open for 10 days so you have no excuse not to play! I know you have the pretty, pretty paper stash! ;)

Stamps: Sentiment from StampingBella
Paper: DCWV Rockstar, SU Early Espresso and Very Vanilla
Ink: Versamark and Early Espresso
Accessories: Seam Binding Ribbon (SU), Rhinestones

Yes! Love this challenge! I definitely have a "few" sheets of paper like that, lol :)
LOVE your card! Good job cutting into that paper! It's painful to make the move, but once you do, it feels good to put it to good use, right?

Oh a challenge after my own heart... I love buying the pretty paper... just end up using CS because I can't bring myself to cut it up either LOL Love your card, so cool!

I love this card. i thought you did th embossing. I can see why you were hoarding it. I use a lot of dsp but I have plenty more just taking up space lookin pretty. I am going to play along soon.

OH I'M so glad you murdered that paper! It totally rocks! I love that. I was ready to ask you what you flocked it with!

thank you for your questions about my great-niece. She does like anything artsy. They are still pulling together art for her walls too. So that would be appreciated if sending supplies is a hardship. My sister said she's such a sweet girl and always so grateful for anything.

I love that paper.....and i know what you mean about slaughtering the pretty pretty paper. Half my paper was bought cuz it was pretty and i told myself i would find a use for it. Im convinced i have to plaster it on my wall for inspiration.

well this summer i bit the bullet and got rid of more than half my stash of Decorated Papers. I had 2 cropper hopper bins full of it and i know half would never see ink or adhesive so i took it in on cconsignment.

Great use of that flocked paper! I have no problem cutting into new paper, however, I buy way more than I can use LOL!

Donna Heber said...

Very pretty card! I too don't like to use up my pretty paper. Yes, I hoard paper.

Whitney said...

Wow I have some paper just like that. I think I may have to take your lead and make something with those to challenge myself. Great job!

Very cool card. That flocked paper is so neat!

Jenn Embry said...

Very pretty. I thought at first that you had stamped the image. Way cool that it was part of the paper.
