Shabby look!

Hey guys! Stephanie with you today ūüôā

I have two cards to show you as part of my inspiration post. As always, I’ve used the amazing Cryogen White cardstock for colouring with my beloved Copic markers.

Both cards are super different, but you can recognize that there’s a shabby touch¬†that I drop in once in a while on them! The first card features a playful kitty from Some Odd Girl, with lots of layers and embellishments, while the other one is simpler, but yet elegant. The stamp I used for a seasonal look is called Winter Coat Marci¬†by La-La Land, a great favourite here at PaperTemptress!


Some close-ups…




The second card…


And here’s the photo that inspired it!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, y’all!

Halloween/Dia de los Muertos

Here’s a fun Halloween theme card using elegant die cuts and gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress.¬† You could also use this card for Dia de los Muertos which is celebrated at the beginning of November.¬† These skeletons are actually Dia de los Muertos style.

The base of this card is Mica/Metallic cardstock called Flame.¬† It’s nice base cardstock which is very rigid and shimmery.¬† The corners were cut out of a black textured cardstock called Black Felt Grandee.¬† The main die cut used Heavenly White.

Hope you loved this Quick and Simple card today, you still have lots of time to made some fun Halloween theme cards.

Nutcracker Tag

Hello, fellow crafters! Today I want to share with you a project using the Nutcracker by Cuddly Cute Designs. He was my very first paper piecing I’ve ever done! Once my friend, Kimberly, helped me how to go about it, I was on a roll! And I had so much fun doing the paper piecing! I never realized how much fun it is to paper piece! So before I go on, here he is:


Isn’t he cute! What I like about the paper piecing is the fact that he’s already colored. I just distressed him up some and put in the “highlights” myself. I used all paper from Paper Temptress: Red Pepper Classic Linen, Emerald Mica/Metallic (isn’t it beautiful??), Eclipse Black and some scraps of white and beige I had in my stash. After I put him together and adhered him to the emerald and red pepper, I “stitched” along the edge of the emerald. Tied a ribbon at the top, and he was done! Paper piecing….so fun and so easy!

If you’ve never tried it before, I encourage you to go over to CCD and give it a shot! They’re are super fun and oh, so cute!

Halloween Box Fold

_igp6308 _igp6309

I just love different folds in cards.  This was on Split Coast Stamper last week.  It is called a Twist Gate Fold.  I did do my angle a little differently, but this is how it worked.

The beautiful dark orange is Treasures Mango Orange.  The white in the center and the ghost are Cryogen White which has a little bit of shimmer to it.  Just perfect for a ghost.  The black is Black Basis.  The patterned paper was just paper that I had in my stash.

Christmas Deer

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.

Owl box



Just dropping by to show off this sweet little owl box I made. I used a digital image from, well shoot, looked for him for about 20 minutes in my computer files and cant find him – I know he is there somewhere so when I find him I will let you know who made him.

Anywho I printed him out onto cryogen white of course( THE best coloring paper ever Рfrom Paper Temptress of course!!) and colored him with my polychrome pencils. I outlined him with a gold metallic pen and put him on top of a box that I covered with fall papers. I added a little wood cut owl and a cute pumpkin to keep him company.

All for today – Have a great week!!!

I {heart} U

Are you making some projects with Halloween images? ¬†I have this fun image called Heart of Bones.¬† How awesome is that?¬† I paired that image with some gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress and some stunning lace I got in Turkiye.¬† This card is giant, at 8.5″ wide and 5.5″ high (half a cardstock sheet folded).

Here’s the gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress on this fun card, the card base and image are done on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest.¬† The black cardstock is a wonderful textured paper called felt grandee black.¬† The transparency comes from Hambly Studio Overylays and is called White Hanging Heliconias.¬† I totally recommend going with the 6×6″ assortment packs as they are just perfect for greeting card making.

Here’s a fun way to make a special card that combines love and Halloween theme all in one!

Have a great weekend!

Autumn Card Project

Hi, crafty peeps! Today I want to share with you a card I did using cardstock and ribbon from Paper Temptress. I totally had a lot of fun using my new Silhouette Portrait to not only cut, but to color! I’ve still got a lot to learn, but hey….I’m getting there! ūüėČ

I first got out my¬†Orange Fizz cardstock, selected a card cutout, and proceeded to have it cut. Then I colored my image using the Silhouette, and sized it to fit my card front. The image, B86-Love Music, is for the Outlawz Color Challenges of which I’m also a DT with, sponsored by Mari Digis Store.

I cut out the image along with a sentiment to fit my autumn theme for this card. I put in a white cardstock on the inside right of the card, weaved my Forest Green Feather Edge ribbon through the floral cut out along the side of the card, placed black lace inside underneath the green weaving, added some flowers, and she was done! The longest thing that took me was to do the coloring, because I’m still learning that. I hope one day to just whip right through that! Lol!

I hope you enjoyed this little card!

Blessings, Jeanie Ellis – Scrapbookingmamaw

Sweet & Sassy

Here’s a fun image from Faery Ink combined with gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress today.¬† I wanted to use some fun pinks and these cute little roses that I picked up while in Turkiye.¬† They sure have a lot of different kinds of bling there.

The base of the card is some delicious pink cardstock in a called Pop Tones Razzleberry.¬† I layered the image on some wonderful Hambly Screenprint called Whimsical, it’s a great shimmery brown with pink highlights and in person is just perfect!¬† I printed out my image using Neenah Solar white classic crest paper.¬† Finally I added an extra die cut using some Pop Tones Bubblegum pink paper.
