Default Can you help me with "paisley" please?

iam just such and idiot when it comes to combine stamps when they are not out of the same set.

1) with which backgrounds could i combine paisley?
(i know linen, canvas, aida and well-Worn Words) would work easy. But which more "dominant" backgrounds would work, too?
or is this more a stamp you would use by itself and just add the focail point image to the card?

2) with which sets can i combine it?
Any suggestions form the new sets?
In general does it work with a flower set???
i do have Bud Basics, Burst into Bloom, Spring Garden, In full Bloom and Looks like Spring

i believe the paisley would work with Loads of Love right?

what do you think about kids sets with paisley?

thanks for your suggestions

Hi:
I don't know if you had seen the ideas in the gallery for a different stamp that has Paisley pattern too. It has great ideas and It may help you. There are other stamps set that have Paisley patterns on the sets like Cowboy kid and others that could help too in giving you ideas for differnt age groups
I hope this was of a little help.
Good luck
Carolina

Well, I'm confessing to be another "idiot"! I don't have an ounce of creativity in my body and most of the cards I do are copied from those I do at workshops, camps or cased from this site! I love the paisley stamps and I also purchased the jeans background stamp. So I may try to do a few western type cards.

I usually look at this site for 99% of my ideas. I've seen things here that I never would have thought of doing with a stamp set, or with combining several sets. You can't go wrong with just searching the gallery. It may end up costing you more money because you DO see things that you'd never think of, so you buy more - at least I know I do.

This is a great idea for a thread. I would love to see which backgrounds people think are just perfect for which sets!

I don't have the new SU Paisley but I do have the Cornish Heritage Farms (which is very similar) and I have combined it with a Print Pattern type of stamp. I also used it with Unfrogettable and Flower Filled and just regular striped background paper. There are examples in my gallery if you want to check them out! Is is a lot more versitile than you think! Just play around with it!

I used one of the fresh fillers stamps that has the Paisley drop to make a birthday card for my father in-law and I used the elegant ornaments to compliment it. My husband said that it looked like some royal type of card and beacuse they are British my father in-law will like it a lot

I think mixing patterns and styles is terrific. I like just about anything with paisley. You can mix any of the background stamps, many of the other sets, like the circle shape sets, flowers, pasiley on paisley, etc.
