Steampunk Valentine


First, sorry about the fairly poor pictures, I was loosing daylight and work the next 4 days so this was my last chance for pictures.

I am ahead of schedule for once and did a Valentine card – I know I said I would have a wedding card but soon, I promise ūüôā

I used 3 different Paper Temptress papers – first, as always, is the cryogen white with this lovely steampunk rose by Rick St.Dennis, colored with prismacolor pencils.

The next layer is a textured , sparkly ‘incandescent-russo’ and lastly another of my favorites is the ‘mica mettalics – gold’ – I love the sparkle, the color and the weight.

All for today – spray painting bottles to use as table decorations for my daughters wedding in July(before the next cold snap comes through tomorrow)

Christmas stash 2018


One last Christmas card from me and done until next year. The base cardstock is a pretty dark blue from the basics line(not sure of the name) but it goes so well with any shade of blue that I have almost used mine up. The base is a 3D die cut as well as the frames and cut outs.

The center portion is from one of last years Christmas cards, cut to fit the opening. I added some stickers inside and some on the outside front also, along with another of last years cards and a chipboard snowflake spritzed with glimmer mist.

All for today – I should have a wedding card for you on Wednesday this week, as soon as I get off to my craft room that is….

Take Care

Mini Calendars

Here’s some more of the adorable calendars that I made to share this year using beautiful papers from Paper Temptress.¬† The calendars are quite small, so the overall projects measure about 2.5″ wide and 3-4″ tall.¬† I used various stamps and some gorgeous papers¬† on them.


1) I am using some shimmery silver as the base and top layer underneath the Dia De Los Muertos button.  I then added a small piece of basis black and Heavenly white paper.

2) I stamped a super cute Grumpling stamps from Taylored Expressions onto Heavenly white paper and layered it onto Silver.  On the bottom I am using  Aqua.

3) I am using Heavenly white as the base of the card and I stamped an adorable image from TAC (I think).  I think used a part of a Hambly Studio Overlay called Magenta Décor Bits.

4).  The base of the calendar is Silver. I use a small sheet of  and put my stamped image on Heavenly White. The image is from Paper Place.

A Sweet Adoption Card

Hi¬†everyone, Ginny here.¬† Today I’ve made a sweet Adoption card!¬† I think this is the first I have made for this type of event, I have friends that are soon to bring home a 7month old baby girl and I wanted to have something special to put in her baby book.¬† I created this card using¬†Paper Temptress Heavenly White 80#¬†to print on and¬†120# Paper¬†as the base and the¬†¬†Gecko Galz¬†Stamps from the¬†Land of Nod Set.

I also used a piece of  scrapbook paper from my stash in the background

Suchh a happy occasion, I printed my stamp in a slate blue, as I originally intended to make this card with a blue palette, I changed my mind when I cam across this Cherry blossom paper. One nice thing about using digitals, you can easily change the stamp colors.  I stayed with the blue and decided it worked  well giving just a bit of contrast

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great day!

Finally the wording was cut on the cricut from Teal Basis.  The tent is also Hot Fudge Pop Tones.

Elegant Flower

Here’s a sweet and simple flower image from Tiddly Inks that I used for this card. I am using simple and elegant papers from Paper Temptress.¬† The base of the card is a very elegant silver that shimmers when you move it in the light.

The base of the card is called Silver Ore.  I used a die cut to cut the pattern out on the right and then used some Basis Black to put behind the from layer of the card.  The image is printed out on Heavenly White paper and layered onto Basis Black.

Hope this floral card gives you great idea for the upcoming new year!

How to make a Sparkeling ATC

He everyone, Ginny here and today I am sharing an ATC I’ve made

This is actually an ATC that I have used digital images to create, using more than one layer and lots of bling!


I’ve printed the background layer on Cryogen White Paper and¬†Fusion Ivory from the HIT paper pack!

and printed the mermaid on Fusion Ivory

Foil flakes, shaved ice, glitter pen and iridescent nail polish and  Best Glue Ever

These papers can handle all the glitter and glitz I added to the surface.

No pilling and wrinkling colored with Alcohol Markers,

I added the sentiment stamp, colored the mermaids dress

and a layer of shaved ice

Then using the nail polish, I coated the entire ATC for shimmer

Next, I glued the edges of the ATC with BGE for adding the foil.  I let it sit a few minutes and dipped in the flake.  I let it dry completely and simply brushed off with a dry paintbrush

It dries permanently holding the silver edge Рit looks like gilt.

I  really love the fine quality of the Paper Temptress Products Рfor all my paper projects!

Noel – 3D card


I didn’t get too many Christmas cards made this year but now that all mine are sent out and all my Christmassy stuff done(except Christmas dinner) I am finishing off some that I started and didn’t get finished.

This card started out with the base cardstock from Paper Temptress called ‘wild cherry’ from the ‘pop tones’ line. I used a 3D die cut to cut it out and then I added some tiny spritzes of a sparkly black ink to make tiny sparkles in the paper. They don’t show up sparkley at all in the pics, bummer….

I used the other part of the same die cut to cut the frames and other pieces from patterned scrapbook paper. The center piece is from one of last years Christmas cards that I cut with a die cut also. The picture on the card was just too pretty to throw away!!! I added some clear rhinestones on the inside.

The outside of the card I decorated with red rhinestones around a piece of scrapbook paper that says Noel and I added a small bow(also from a die cut) with a clear rhinestone accent.

A very quick and easy card to put together with all the hard stuff done with die cuts!!!

Have a great Holidays and Merry Christmas!!!

Kitty Pilot

Here’s a brand new stamp this month from one of my favorite artists, Sandra Caldwell. This awesome image is called #1940 Kitty Pilot.¬† Isn’t he awesome?¬† Purrrfect for that cat lover or that pilot in your life!¬† I have also used some gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress on this card that just make the image POP right off the card.

The base of the card was cut from an 8.5×11 sheet of paper into a 5.5″ square card. I am using some awesome shiny glossy cardstock called black pearl.¬† To accent the corner I am using some 1/2″ strips of Mica/metallic in Antique gold.¬† The image was printed out in Heavenly White.

Hope you love this cute cat!  Have a great weekend!

Cheers, Holley

Wintertime fun!

Here’s a delightful winter card using a wonderful image from Artist Sandra Caldwell of Babycakes DND on Etsy paired with some gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress.¬† Doesn’t the image just jump off the card?


The base of the card is glossy black cardstock.¬† Then I added a¬† Hambly Studio Overlay called White Falling Snowflakes.¬† I trimmed the overlay to 6″ square and used glue dots to adhere the overlay to the shimmery paper. Then I added glue dots to stick the buttons on the top side of the overlay.¬† The image was printed out on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest paper.¬† You could either add the image to the top or under the overlay, in this case I added it to the top using pop dots to give the card and extra dimension.

I hope this wintertime card inspires you to make some cards today!
