Just like all the team members you have met to date, I too am thrilled and excited to be sharing my creations using the amazing cardstock from the PaperTemptress!
By way of introducing myself, I am a stay at home citizen (â€œSAHCâ€ the word â€œseniorâ€ is not admitted). I’ve served my time as a wife, mother, grandmother, legal secretary and all the other duties that fall upon womankind and now, it is “ME” time and most of that time is devoted to making greeting cards. I am totally addicted and my dependency of beautiful cardstock has not only brought me to PaperTemptress, but has also introduced me to friends worldwide with the same mania. If you share the same fondness for beautiful cardstock you will appreciate the wide selection of colors and textures available at PaperTemptress.
One of my favorite techniques is to make my own backgrounds. For my card today I started with Cryogen White cardstock that has a hint of sparkle that is enhanced by any color. I used three distress inks and then ran it through a handheld embosser. To achieve the stripes, I used sandpaper to remove some of the ink. Using clear embossing power and moreÂ Cryogen White cardstock, I stamped the images and sentiment. Once the powder was heat set, I used the same colors of distress inks to finish them. I wound a piece of gold thread around the sentiment to complete the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed your visit. Please come back each day to see more beautiful creations by members of the PaperTemptress design team.
