Have a Magical Day!

Here’s a wonderful creation using stunning papers from Paper Temptressand a beautiful stamp from artist Rebecca Sinz of Sweet Pea stamps called “Sweet Demons.”  I used some amazing textured papers along with some stunning stitched paisley.


The stamped image is done on the Heavenly white paper, this paper is a wonderful thickness and is great for coloring with Copic Markers.  If you haven’t tried it, it’s often my go to, however Paper Temptress also sells a great mixture called “the copic sampler package;”  so, if you want to try several different kinds of white paper out with your makers (click here), you can get a variety of papers made to be used for alcohol ink coloring.  I also die cut this paper using one of the newest Spellbinders.   After I die cut the paper, I layered it onto a great layer of black paper called black felt grandee.  You can really see the texture here in this enlarged photo:

The base of the card uses beautiful paper called Red Pepper Thick columns. I highlighted this paper by adding some chalking to the edges.

The base of the card is covered in some wonderful stitched paisley ribbon. I got this awesome ribbon when visiting Istanbul this summer. There is literally a “ribbon district” that contains store after store after store of places that sell nothing but ribbons and laces. It’s amazing. A real crafter’s dream. I added the saying “Have a magical day” to the card because it goes so well with this image. Now don’t you want to take some delicious paper, amazing ribbon, and a fabulous stamp, a killer die cut and make a card like this?  Who wouldn’t want to hand out a beautiful set of handmade cards to people as Christmas gifts?

Happy Holidays everyone! (or should I say Happy Holley-Days!)

Cheers, Holley
