Let the Paper Do the Talking...

This week's Wee Memories Challenge was to "Dust Off the Patterned Paper".  I had just picked up two 6x6 Crate Paper packs.  Anyone else addicted to 6x6 paper packs?  This paper is bright and cheery and perfect to use for the challenge.  Quick and easy cards to share!

First up is a card for this week's Stampin' 411 layout.  Chrissy saw me making this and said, "Lynn, that is really feminine for you."  I had to think about using this beautiful floral paper...I was very tempted to use the other side that was a much simpler pattern, but this floral paper really does speak for it self.  Chrissy gave me a chuckle!
Ingredients:  Crate Paper DSP: PTI Kraft Paper; Stampin' Up Melon Mambo Paper; Old Olive Ribbon; Flowers; PTI Twine; Ranger Broken China Distress Ink; PTI Beyond Background Basics Stamps

Next is a bright card for the Just Us Girls Challenge...make a gatefold card.  Don't you love the non-traditional Christmas colors? 
Ingredients:  Stampin' Up Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White Paper; Crate Paper DSP, STampin' UP Old Olive Ribbon; Just Rite Stamps; BG Gems

Last is another card with the Crate Paper!  I played along with this for the Caardvarks Holiday Die Challenge.
Ingredients:  Stampin' Up Cherry Cobler and Old Olive Paper; Stampin' Up More Mustard and Cherry Cobbler Ink ; PTI Twine and Fillable Frames; Basic Grey Gems

Happy hump day!  I think that is the most challenges I've ever posted in one day...but I love this paper!

I love your Crate paper card...the hydragea flowers really pop. I love little paper pads....too much! Your other cards are great and I love the funky Christmas light paper that speaks for itself.

Wow these are all just great. I do love the non-traditional Christmas cards even though I tend to be more of a "traditional" stamper. They are bright, fun and oh so festive.
