Create your own paper

If you're like me, there are many times when you don't have paper in exactly the colors you need. Stamp your own paper! You can do this for scrapbook pages, or cardmaking...you can still cut the paper! I used several stamps from the "Delight in Everything" CTMH stamp set. If you first look at the big red flowers, you'll see that they are stamped in triangles to help me give it a random look. I continued this technique with all the flowers. When you don't have much white space left you can fill in wherever you need to. Don't be scared to overlap and stamp off the edge. Just make sure you have scrap paper underneath! Colors used: cranberry, breeze, buttercup, and garden green.
