Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!  For today’s project,  I’m sharing an easy Christmas card.

For this card, I started out with some Neenah Solar White cardstock as the base.  I cut out the red mat using Neenah Classic Linen Red Pepper cardstock.  The deer has some copper Perfect Pearls layered on some Neenah Desert Storm with a strip of the Hambly Overlay Antique White Falling Snow.  The “Ho Ho” sentiment was cut using a scrap of green textured cardstock from my stash, and inking it with Memento Northern Pine ink.

Hello and happy weekend!  I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday.  Today, I’m sharing a different kind of project – a shaker bookmark!

Bookmark
For this bookmark, I used my new toy, WRMK’s Fuse tool, a page protector, part of the Pink Sweet Tooth Hambly Studio overlay, and some heavyweight clear vellum to back it.  The bits inside the bookmark are homemade confetti I created using paper scraps and some punches, as well as some sequins and micro sequins.  The ribbon is also from my stash.  I thought the little bits looked like they were candy that could have been in the jars.

I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!  For today’s project, I’m sharing a card created using some beautifully textured paper that is foiled – yes, foiled!

For this card, I printed out a beautiful carnation image by Create with TLC using my laser printer on Epic Black cardstock.  This is an awesome black cardstock that has a very light texture.  Using toner reactive foil, I sent the image through my Minc machine, which resulted in this beautiful image.  I cut it out using a Ticket Framelits die and adhered it to a doily which is matted onto one of the beautiful Hambly Studio screenprints (a portion of Vintage Patchwork).  Since the screenprints are definitely a layering element, you do need to use a nice, sturdy card base.  For this purpose, I chose to use Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock.

I really enjoyed making this card.  I think it’s very Spring-y and great for this time of year.

For this card, I used some pink designer paper from my stash on top of the card base.  The image itself is one I got from a friend many years ago.  I believe it is stamped on Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut out the image using a Spellbinders die and then mounted it onto one of the gorgeous Hambly overlays.  The flower in the corner is cut and embossed from Earthstone from the Classic Linen Package using a Sizzix Embosslits.  If you’ve never had a chance to play with the Linen paper line, give it a try – it is absolutely beautiful paper with a super subtle texture.

Daffodils are starting to come up in my yard.  The temperatures have remained above freezing.  Spring is on its way!  Officially, it will be here tomorrow at 6:45 p.m. EDT, but who’s counting the minutes??  Here is my card for the From the Heart Stamps progressive challenge.

For this card, I started with the adorable Easter Trio image printed on Cryogen cardstock, and I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors to paint the image.  After I watercolored the image, I used a Bic Mark It to color around the edges to frame them.  For the card base, I used some 6×6 Hambly Studio prints and a strip of Cryogen.  I rounded the bottom corners with my 1/2″ corner chomper.

Happy Saturday!  Hopefully everyone is enjoying their weekend.  For today’s project, I have a card showing a couple of cute owls and some fantastic PaperTemptress.com products!

For this card, I started out with a Neenah Desert Storm Kraft cardstock.  On top, I layered one of the Hambly Studio overlays, this one from Package #3, that looks like wood grain.  The owls are a Digistamps4Joy image called Two-wit Twooo from the Progressive Challenge, and the sentiment is from the Happy Happy Joy Joy Word Art set.  Both the sentiment and the image are printed onto Cryogen cardstock, and the owls are colored with the following Copic markers:  100, C00, E13, E15, E50, E53, E57, E59, R22, R24, R29, W4, W7, W10, Y06, Y36, and YR24.  The sentiment is mounted onto Red Crepe Ruche, which gives it some subtle texture.  I also used Glossy Accents for the owls’ eyes.

Diorama Card Share July 16, 2013

Today, I’m sharing a three-dimensional card that I created using a cutting file and my Silhouette Cameo. This is a new one for me, as I have never created a diorama card before but it was fun to make with lots of little details!

Front of the Diorama Card

Here is the front of the card.  If you look closely, you can see that the card has some dimension to it.  It’s definitely not a card for mailing since it would never survive the post office unless it was inside its own protective box! For the construction of the card front, I used Curious Metallics Cryogen White, Hambly Studios Screenprints On Edge and Overlay Teal Vintage Patchwork, and Eclipse Black.  The sentiment is stamped using Studio G’s Lots of Hugs stamp set.

Inside the Diorama Card

This is the inside of the diorama card, using many of the same papers as the front cover.  The differences include the little girl dancing, which is cut using the Yummy White Iridiescent Vellum – what a match to the Cryogen cardstock!  They both add a subtle sheen to your project, the difference being that the vellum is opaque.  It really is a beautiful effect.  More difficult to see is the armoire, which is covered in glossy accents, also cut from the Cryogen.  The mirror on the back wall is painted with Adirondak Metallics Gold acrylic paint, and the silver portion is air duct tape.  The dresser and bed portions are cut using cardstock from my stash, then inking over it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to tone down the numbers in the dresser portion.

Many thanks to Bird of Bird’s Cards for sharing her adorable cutting file!

Hot Fun in the Summertime! June 18, 2013

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.

It's time for a barbecue!

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.
