Asian Beauty

Good Morning everyone!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far!   My name is Nancy Jensen and I’m a new member of the Paper Temptress Design Team and I’m super-excited to be here!

My project today  is Asian inspired and I have a little tutorial for you.  This is my first post here so I hope you like it!

First up I used a Sheri Baldy digital stamp for my focal point image , isn’t she cute?  I printed her onto Cryogen White cardstock which has a bit of a shine to it.  Here’s a photo I took of the Cryogen White to show the sparkles and then a photo of the image after I colored her with copics as I was cutting her out.  I hope you can see the sparkles!  The Cryogen White is super smooth which makes it an excellent cardstock for using copics on.

I used Whip Cream cardstock for the base and cut it out using Spellbinder’s Grand Labels One.  I used #3 for the outside and #1 for the cut-out on the inside.

 Next I took a 6×6 piece of Bamboo Forest Screenprint and also cut it out using Spellbinder’s Grand Labels One.  This paper is GORGEOUS!  Notice how it shimmers and changes color in the light!  It’s also somewhat transparent as the last photo shows with the dark brown paper behind it.

I layered the card as such:  First the Whip Cream base with cut-out, next the Bamboo Forest, then on top I used Brown cardstock also cut with the Spellbinder’s Grand Labels One.

 Here is my card once I put it all together.

 The  reason I cut out a window in the base of the card behind the Bamboo Forest is because of how cool it looks with the light behind the top of the card.
