Hey everyone! Today I am sharing a Halloween card I made with Paper Temptress Papers. The image is from Saturated Canary and I colored it with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.

PT Oct Resize

I printed the image on Copic X-press paper. The black paper is Eclipse Black.  I embossed a spider web onto it and added some Perfect Pearls to give it a little shine. The green on the base is Gumdrop Green, another one of my favorites.

Fun Paper Tassels

Hopefully, everyone is having a wonderful day!  I’m sharing something a little different today – paper tassels made using some of the beautiful papers that Patricia carries at


These tassels sure are fun to make!  To start, I used some 24 gauge wire and made a loop at one end.  These three tassels are made using Haviland Blue Classic Linen, Neenah Solar White 80#, and Mango Orange 80# cardstock.  To create the tassels, I started with a homemade quilling tool to get the paper started.  Then, I removed the tool and replaced it with the wire, loop toward the bottom, and I glued it to the paper.  The paper is rolled around the wire, with some glue added as the paper was rolled to secure it and keep the roll tight.  I added a dollop of hot glue to the top of the tassel to help secure it.  Then, I added some bead caps and beads to the top, creating another loop at the top when I was finished.  This way, the tassel can be attached to whatever you decide to create.  To decorate the top of the tassel, I also used some Washi tape.

Penguin Joy

penquin joy - 1


Stopping by today with a cute little Christmas card – did a few Christmas cards in July to help me get started so I wont be making the 70 some cards I send at Christmas time at the last minute(again – as I seem to do every year 🙂

I colored this cute little digi by Conie Fong with copics onto ‘ cryogen white’ (as always – its my fav) from Paper Temptress. I edged the image panel in silver metallic pen. The base cardstock is from the ‘incandescent’ line called ‘rosso’ from Paper Temptress. I has a cool fine texture and is glittery to boot – a great red cardstock for Christmas cards!!! The second photo shows it a bit better but it is so much prettier in real life!!!

All for me today – Take Care

ATC Cards using PT Scraps

Hello, crafty peeps! Today I thought I’d share something a little different from what I normally do. Making ATCs and using up scraps! (Which I should do more often!   😀 )  I got the inspiration for this from a YouTube tutorial by Elena S. Although I’ve done ATCs before, this one was a little different from my previous ATCs. So, to get the full “how-to’s” on it, please go to her channel. Mine are somewhat different, of course, but she deserves the credit.

All the papers were completely from my Paper Temptress stash…every bit! I used scraps of: Silver Lustre Package, Scriptease paper, and the Basis paper pack. Since they were scraps, I didn’t mind using them.  😉

So, have some fun with this! Use your scraps up and show us your creations!

Blessings, Jeanie Ellis – Scrapbookingmamaw

Butterflies just for you


Most of  the cardstock in this card came from the Treasures line.  I love it because it has a slight texture.  The Green is Grass and the tan is Crafty Brown.  Actually the two patterned papers are the same color cardstock.  I have some really big background stamps that I have not used much.  There was a curved handle you were supposed to use with them, but it never really worked well.  Now I have a Misti tool for making sure stamping comes out perfectly and I am back into using them,

The cream colored piece on this card is Neenah Super Smooth Ivory.  The stamps on the Ivory piece are from Stampin’ Up

Floral Greeting Card

My card today uses quite a few fun papers from the Paper Temptress Store.    The base of the card is Desert Storm Kraft which I stamped with the wood grain stamp by Stampin’ Up.


The banners were stamped in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder onto the following paper: Sapphire (text weight)Spring Larch (text weight) and Azalea (text weight).  The heart is also out of Azalea and the butterfly is punched from Rose Petal Vellum.


 I stamped the large flowers (by Stampin’ Up!) onto Heavenly White and colored them with copics.   One of the small flowers I stamped onto Amethyst (text weight) and the other one is on Sapphire (text weight).   The leaves are punched out of Spring Larch (text weight) .  I really like the text weight Glimmer paper because you can easily use punches on them and they are easy to shape.


After I shaped the flowers I glued them onto the background and put 1/2 pearl stickers in the centers.

Thank you for coming by!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Anniversary Card

Here’s a very elegant card that you can create with two basic colors for a special occasion, a 50th anniversary.  I am using Neenah Solar White Classic Crest and Basis Black.  Both are wonderful papers that you can get at Paper Temptress.  They are simple and very useful papers that you can turn into a magnificent card.

The background is embossed with a folder from Crafter’s Companion and all the die cuts are layered using a set from Spellbinders Nestabilities.  The “50th” letters come from a Sizzix layered alphabet set.  I then added a whole set of small Doodlebug flowers in black and off white.

I think it turned out very elegant for such a wonderful occasion.  The customer was so happy with it and I hope the happy couple loves it.

Simple Birthday Card

Happy Weekend!  Today, I am sharing a birthday card.



I really like how this card turned out, and I think it would be perfect for a masculine card as well.  I chose to do the card using only Neenah Solar White Classic Linen.  This cardstock is lightly textured, and I love how it looks.  The panel on the card base is embossed using Anna Griffin’s Feather Blanket embossing folder combined with a Sizzix stamp and die set created by Jen Long called Feather Wreath.  The stamps are inked with Memento Tuxedo Black and Nautical Blue inks.

Summer daisies

yellow daisies - 1


Some fresh summer daisies to show you this am. I colored up these gerber daisies from Flourishes onto my all time favorite go to coloring paper ‘cryogen white’ from Paper Temptress using prismacolor pencils. I edged the main panel with a gold metallic pen.

The card base is ‘jelly bean green’ from Paper Temptress also – it is my favorite color of green too – not too dark, not too bright.

I used some cool stickers from my stash to accent the corners and another card all done 🙂

I am off to work again today – got my knees injected yesterday so we will see how they feel when I get home today. Wish me luck!!!

Take Care
