Second birthday card


I wanted to see what I could do with one type of cardstock.   This whole card is done with Neenah Ivory.    I cut the flower out and colored it with Copic markers.  I used a Misti alignment tool for stamping the sentiment.  I could stamp the sentiment numerous times in exactly the same spot with the Misti.

First Birthday card of the New Year


First off Happy New Year everyone!

I need several birthday cards right at the beginning of the new year, so that gave me my theme.  The base, sentiment and stamped image are all Neenah Super Smooth Ivory.  The beautiful olive green layer is Olive Basis.

The ribbon used for the accent is from Paper Temptress also.

Hey guys!

Stephanie here with you today and I’m so happy because like most people, I’m off until the second week of January, woot woot! A loooooot of crafty plans, may I say so!

So for today’s post, I’m quickly going to show you how you can not only use Cryogen White for colouring with alcohol markers, but also as a sturdy background/cardbase! I decided to use a new technique with those cute Gingersnaps from SugarPea Designs, whereas you cut your sparkly Cryogen White cardbase to 4″x11″ and simply stamp all along your gingerbread house. Try alternating the start of your “lines”, so that they don’t necessarily happen at the same level. When you’re done, simply score the cardbase from the top, add two die-cuts in the corner and two gingerbreadmen. In using the same cardstock, you are 100% to have the same sparkly white effect!


Like it? Make sure to try it, too!

Mickey Mouse Birthday


This is the first birthday card I made for the little girl of my nephew.  I wanted something that had some dimension to it so this is what I settled on.

The base for the card is Spirit Red Feltweave.  I wanted the base under the Mickey Mouse to have some sheen to it so that is Silver Lustre


The rest of the bright colors came from the Pop Tones Line.  This line is so great because the colors are all so vibrant.  The red for the name is Red  Pop Tones.  Mickey Mouse head is Black Licorice Pop Tones.  The pink for the bow is Razzleberry Pop Tones.  The Yellow is Lemondrop Pop Tones.  and the blue is Blu Raspberry Pop Tones.

Loving Life

Here’s a gorgeous card using beautiful papers from Paper Temptress.  I recently ordered this die online and I just love it.  I used some black and gold combination of papers to create this clean and simple card with it.

The base of this card is a beautiful red with gorgeous flecks of mica inside it.  When you turn it side to side you can see the mica.  The peacock is cut out of basis black. Once cut, I used some gorgeous metallic gold paper behind the black.  I finished off the card with some wonderful specialty paper, it’s Ruche in black, Black Crepe.  I added a sentiment from Cosmo Crickett.

I am back with some more quick and simple cards made with yummy sparkly cardstock from Paper Temptress. The base cardstock is silk silver lustre and is one of my favorites – it is so silvery and shimmery – I use it for a lot of stuff – especially Christmas cards!!!

The gold cardstock behind the shaker window is from the mica metallic line – gold and it is even more my favorite!!! I really need to  ah  well ‘adjust’ my budget somehow because I am running low of both these favorites!!!

So to go with these 2 sparkly cardstocks I used some glittery Christmas stickers, and some cute snowmen, and the ribbon on the ‘jar’ is from Paper Temptress also – I folder it in half so it would fit the jar better.

All for today – need to get back to making Christmas cards!!!

Take Care

Little Christmas Bird

Hello, fellow crafters! Today I want to share with you a Christmas card.  I found the cutest little bird from Kajsansscrapblog. If you follow her link, you’ll find several free images with these cute birds! Adorable!

For my card, I started off by first using my Prismacolors on the image. Once that was done, I mounted the image onto some 6×6 Silver Laser Lustre. I used some Glossy Accents on the candle to make it seem more realistic. I then layered all that onto some Lemon Yellow Vellum, and in turn mounted that onto some Cream Velvet Touch from Paper Temptress. I had some red cardstock in my stash, so I put all those pieces onto it as my card base. I used my leafy vine die cut to put several around the image, and a poinsettia in the middle of those. Placing pearls onto the vines made them “pop” out more. I then simply cut out a sentiment from some Kraft Vintage Christmas paper and placed it in the top left corner of my card. And then it was done! It was pretty simple to make, really. But the end result was exactly what I was looking for!

I hope you enjoyed this image….please stop by often, as there’s something new every day!

Blessings, Jeanie Ellis – Scrapbookingmamaw

Season’s Greetings

Here’s a CAS Season’s Greetings card that is quick and easy but very elegant looking. It was a breeze to put together but people just love the look of it.  I am using stunning papers from Paper Temptress to create this beauty along with some die cuts.

I cut the base of the card using Red Pepper Skinny Columns.  It comes as part of a wonderful textured package.  I was able to get the columns to show even better by adding white ink to the edges and parts of the card front.  I used Heavenly white to cut out the snow globe and the Season’s Greetings die cut.  Then I added some bright blue cardstock behind the cut out portion of the snow globe.

Season’s Greetings everyone!
