Little shepard

shepard red - 1


I am back to Christmas cards – trying to do a few at a time so I don’t end up doing them all in one week. I used a sweet little digi from ‘Aurora Wings’ called ‘Little Shepard’ and printed him onto ‘cryogen white cardstock from Paper Temptress – an awesome cardstock for coloring, smooth with just a little glitter.  I colored him with prismacolor pencils.

I edged the main panel with a gold metallic pen, added a gold ribbon (also from PT BTW!!!)  for the first one, Happy Holidays stickers for both and for the second one, some bronze viva décor pen pearl accents.

The base cardstock for the red version  is ‘incandescent- rosso’ and for the second is ‘mica mettalics – gold’

All for today – back to the craft room for me 🙂

Take Care

Flowers say Hello


This is a quick card I put together for my post today.  We just got back from 11 days in Alaska.  It was fantastic.

The base for this card is Grape Jelly Pop Tones, with the second layer being Pink Lemonade Pop Tones.  The embossed white layer is the wonderful Cryogen White, so it has some sheen to it.  The small flowers were also stamped on that.  The green curvy piece is Gumdrop Green Pop Tones.  To finish off the card I added the wording in Dark Purple Basis.

Sweet Thank You

Good morning, everyone!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.  Today, I’m sharing a thank you card I made for a very dear friend of mine.


For this card, I went a little bigger than my usual A2 size, and this is done as a 5×7.  The image of the perfume bottle is from the Spectrum Noir Colorista marker pad called In Full Bloom, and it is colored with a combination of the Spectrum Noir and Colorista markers.  My card base is Solar White Classic Linen cardstock, and I matted the image using one of my favorites from the Spring Premium Package, Vintage Silver Lustre text weight.  The Thank You is cut using a Die-Versions die from Greystone, which is also from the Classic Linen line.  Thanks for stopping by!

Steampunk Rose

steampunk rose - 1


I have for you today a bit of steampunk. This cool rose digi is from Rick St.Dennis and I printed it onto ‘cryogen white’ (my fav) and colored her with prismacolor pencils. To go with the gray background I added a gray ribbon with pearls. I added a bit of glitter to the dew drop on the rose and the red jewel too. I edged the main image panel with a gold metallic marker and lastly added some red rhinestones.

The base cardstock is a beautifully textured and glitter cardstock from Paper Temptress from the ‘incandescent’ line called ‘rooso’. I just love this cardstock – great texture and glittery to boot!!

Well all for now – Take Care

Fold Over Box

Hello, crafters! Today I want to share with you a box I made using almost all Paper Temptress papers. I found this tutorial on the Splitcoasters website, but the YouTube video for it is here. So, instead of telling you the process for making this, it’d be more beneficial for you if you went with the video. However, an FYI here: the lady mistakenly said a wrong measurement in the video for the fold over part of the box. Instead of 2 – 6×3″, they should be 2 – 6×9″. When I had done the latter measurement, however, I found the box to be too small for the fold over, so mine ended up as 2 – 5×9″ using the Heavenly White. I then layered that over with a sheet of Hambly Studio Overlay. The butterflies on top are from Reneabouquets while the white applique butterfly that’s on the front of the box is from KPKre8tions.

I made the flowers on the top: the white one is from the Silver Luster line (I also lined the inside with the same paper). I sprayed the flowers with a pearl mist. A leaf die cut was used on top and on the side of the box and a rose ribbon.

Here is my final project:

I made this ballerina art piece for my niece’s birthday.  She has been in dance and ballet so I wanted to make her something to remember her special day.

I only used one paper from Paper Temptress store on this piece but I used both watercoloring technique and regular coloring with copics on it.  I love this paper because it has a wonderful texture to it that is great for copics, watercolors and inks as well as many other mediums that you may want to try.  The awesome paper is called Strathmore Bristol Bright White.

I hope you can see the difference between the watercolor background and the copic coloring of the ballerina.

I took this photo a darker and angled it so that you could see the little gems that I added to this project.

The stamp I used is a digital stamp by AuroraWings called Flower Ballerina.   I LOVE a lot of the digital stamps on this site!  In fact, I really liked that I could make this image as large as I wanted in order for it to be the right size for this project.

Thank you for stopping by!  Hope you have a fun and craft-tastic weekend!

I will rule the world!

Here’s an adorable image from SLS Lines today combined with some gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress.  This fun image is brand new in the SLS Lines store, so be sure and check him out.  I added a hilarious sentiment from Riley’s stamps “I am kind of surprised I am not an action figure by now.”  ha!

I am using a wonderful combination of papers from Paper Temptress for this card.  The base of the card is Pop tones Gumdrop Green;  I then added a clear printed transparency from Hambly Studios.  This Hambly Studious Overlay is called Brown Hanging Heliconias.  I printed out the image and stamped my sentiment on Neenah Solar White Classis Crest.  To connect the Hambly Studios overlay to the paper card I used glue dots, but brads or eyelets would also be a great way to attach them.

I hope this card gave you a smile today

Cheers, Holley

Swirly Bird


I made this card with one of my favorite Stampin’ Up sets.  The stamp set is called Swirly Bird and the die set is called Swirly Scribbles.

I wanted the base to be a nice dark purple so Grape Jelly Pop Tones was perfect.  The second white layer is Cryogen White because I wanted a little bit of sheen.  I embossed this with a SU folder called softly falling.  The stamped swirls were from the Swirly Bird set.

The large swirl is Cotton Candy Pop Tones,  the medium is Blue Raspberry Pop Tones, and the small is Grapesicle Pop Tones.  I added some pearls for accent.
