Use your designer prints paper: Part 2

Do you have lots of pretty designer prints paper in your stamping stash. These cards are just for you!  About a month ago I did a post showcasing a layout to use up your pretty papers.  Today I am going to show you another versatile layout that showcases the Colorful Journey Prints paper from Fun Stampers Journey.  Part 2!

I was browsing Pinterest late one night and I stumbled across a beautiful card by Amy Kolling on Flicker from 2013.  You can see her card here.  I totally new I wanted to case (copy and steal everything) her layout to showcase this beautiful paper called Colorful Journey.  These prints papers From FSJ are just GORGEOUS and Amy’s angled card panel layout rocks!

The great thing about these cards is you need just a few supplies in addition to your pretty paper.   Whip cream and Black Licorice card stock, various sentiments, a few embellishments and Black licorice ink!  Clean and Simple card making at its best. Totally my jam!

I love Pink and Black!  Can you believe all these beautiful papers came from the same pack?

And simple black and white cards are always stunning.  This one has the Cottage Flowers to add a pop of color!
