Roxie is on the Paper Trail Blog Hop!

Welcome to the December Paper Trail Blog Hop featuring the rich colors and textures of the Roxie paper packet. If you have arrived here from Connie's blog, Scraps & Stories, then you're on the right track. 

I will admit that I simply adore working with this paper packet. At first glance, seeing a collection of florals, plaids, and, yes, even animal prints, I was curious as to just how these fabulous papers would play off each other. In experimenting with the papers, I have found that the artwork waiting to come to life is limitless.

These particular cards include images from the December stamp of the month, Mad About You. While I normally choose something other than our stamp of the month to use in the blog hop, I wanted to showcase two cards using the same stamp set and papers and yet having a very different feel.

While the card above takes advantage of the softer look of sorbet, stamped swirls, and a scallop-like sentiment, the card at the right takes on a more contemporary look with animal print background and texture paper, a sleek black card, and opaques and sparkles that march up the center portion of the focal area. Enjoy!

Now hop on over to Betsy Gully's blog, Stamp Scrap Fever and see just what she has to offer using the Roxie collection!
