Serendipity! When stamps & paper are perfect together!

I've always thought that Basic Grey papers were perfect with justjohanna stamps. But when I saw these bird papers from Basic Grey, I had a "Eureeka!" moment. I knew the papers would be just perfect with justjohanna's fancy cage stamp! I simply stamped the cage over the bird, cut out the cage, and pop dotted it over another piece of patterned paper!

I just love Basic Grey's 6x6 pads. I especially love that they scaled the patterns down to make them even better for cards.

The top card uses Pacific Heights from the Phoebe collection. The second card uses Cherish from the Blush collection.

Thanks for visiting today.


  1. They really do look perfect together! Great cards!

  2. I LOVE how you spot lit the inside of each cage! Clever!

  3. i love that they scaled down the patterns too.

  4. excellent!! so we could just cage Basic Grey's birdie, if we want!

    what a smart idea!

  5. I love these, Kathi! So clever, and of course your paper matching abilities leave me in awe!
