Here is a quick and easy holiday card.  It really shows off the beautiful papers that you can get from PaperTemptress.com and it is simple to create.

For this card, I started with a white card base so it would be easy to write in.  Then, I layered Eclipse Black, Solar White Linen, and Red Pepper Linen.  I embossed the Red Pepper using an Anna Griffin embossing folder just to give the card some added dimension.  And I finally added the sentiment on top (from the Digistamps4Joy progressive challenge), which is printed on Cryogen.

Here is a card I created using Gelatos, which are a new medium for me.  For the card base, I started with Eclipse black cardstock, embossed with the Anna Griffin Olivia Lace Cuttlebug folder.  I thought it mimicked the background stamp pretty well.  The background stamp is by Hampton Art, called Double Vision.  I stamped it on Neenah Heavenly White 80# cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it in with Bic Mark-It markers.  The.  The “tile” is actually two pieces of Heavenly White cardstock.  The top is colored using Faber Castell Gelatos.  I put the colors onto a solid stamp, spritzed it with water, and then stamped the image.  After cutting the image out, I cut out a border from another piece of cardstock and then covered that with Hematite Inka Gold.  Then, I attached those two pieces with foam dots to give it a little more dimension before attaching it to the rest of the card.

Well, October is more than half over – can you believe it?

For today’s post, I am sharing a project I made using the 3D Haunted House Halloween Countdown cutting file from the Silhouette store.  I cut the house and pieces out using my Cameo die cutter.   The house is cut using black Eclipse cardstock,  The numbers have been cut from orange cardstock from my stash.

You can see a few of the boxes behind the windows of the house; these are cut from cardstock from my stash in different Halloween-y colors.  Hope you enjoy!  I thought this was a fun take on your traditional Advent calendar type project for Halloween.  As a side note, this is a time-consuming project to put together, just so you are aware before you start!

Good morning everyone!  Today, I am sharing a card that reminds me of a stained glass window.

For this card, I used the Eclipse Black cardstock as the base.  This is a wonderful cardstock, heavy enough to stand up even with intricate die cutting.  The die cut I chose to use is one from the Silhouette store, and I cut it using my Cameo.  I actually cut the file out twice, once in the Eclipse Black and once in a cheap white cardstock from my stash.  The white cut-out was used to know which areas of the background to color with my Copic markers.  I did not want to leave any trace of pencil or anything else that would possibly show through in the design.  The “glass” portion of the paper is the Yummy White Iridescent Vellum, and it sure is yummy!  It’s difficult to catch in a photo, but this vellum shines and sparkles through the coloring.  It catches the light beautifully!  And right now,  you can pick up the entire line of Vellum for 25% off!

Copic markers used in this project include B04, G14, V17, and Y38; the gems in the corners are heat-set iRock gems.

Well, I hope that everyone is having a wonderful day today.  This is Danielle, a new kid on the block, for the Paper Temptress Design Team.  Today, I’m sharing a card I made using some of the gorgeous cardstock from Hambly Studio‘s 6×6 Screenprints.  I also used some incredibly realistic leather cardstock, which comes in a variety of different colors.

For this card, the base is covered with Chic Circles, one of the Hambly Studio’s screenprints.  It really catches the light, as you can tell.  I framed the screenprint with a luscious leather-look cardstock in a rich, luxurious color called Cordovan Leather.  It’s beautiful, isn’t it?  The image is framed with a die cut from a Silhouette store file.  It really pops off the page because it is cut from some Eclipse Black paper, which is a nice, true black colored cardstock.  It is thick enough to hold its shape and form easily even though it’s been cut to frame the Dearie Dolls image, colored with Copic markers.
