Add Some Sparkle

What I love most about Paper Temptress Cardstock is the sheer amount of sparkle that one can add to a card to take it from plain to WOW!  There is some serious sparkle going on with a lot of the cardstocks…and pictures just don’t do it justice!  Case in point #1:

(Stamps: Hugs & Kisses Set from Paper Makeup Stamps, Cardstock: Azalea Mica/Metallic, Iridescent Cryogen White, Golden Green Basis)
I made a simple anniversary card that would probably be a little plain normally, but using Paper Temptress cardstock (particularly the Mica/Metallic and Cryogen White) and that plain card is something stunning!  And notice how beautifully the Basis cardstock was embossed…beautiful detail!  And since sometimes the general card pictures just can’t show the sparkle right, here is a detail shot for you:

Now onto Case in Point #2:

(Stamps: Forest Friends from Stampin’ Up! and Celebration Sentiments from Paper Makeup Stamps, Cardstock: Heavenly 100# White, Incandescent Blumarino, Gold Sparkle, Copper Ore Glimmer)

Typically, you don’t have a lot of sparkle on masculine cards, but when you have very cool metallic type sparkle cardstock, then you can go to town!  Here the Incandescent Blumarino Cardstock has a wonderful texture and a gold sparkle.  Add a little Gold Sparkle cardstock and Copper Ore Glimmer cardstock and you have a masculine card unlike all of the rest.  Just in case you really need to see the sparkle better, check out the detail shot:

So go add some sparkle to your cards…you won’t regret it!  Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering with Paper Temptress!
