Heavenly White and Clear Vellum

 Even though Christmas is over and we are already a week into the New Year,  I did want to share an elegant Christmas card that could easily translate to another occasion by changing the flower and sentiment, its all in the cardstock and vellum. To create the card I started with Heavenly White […]

Grape Jelly Christmas

Sometimes the most unusual can turn into wonderful results! For a nontraditional Christmas card I started with PaperTemptress’ gorgeous Pop Tone 54# Grape Jelly cardstock combined with a banner made from Heavenly White 100# Extended Archival cardstock, then added pretty snowflakes and a touch of bling, the results are surprising and striking!


Midnight Blue Christmas

This time of year we are all preparing to make holiday cards. My card today is an excellent example of cards to mass produce. The other option that would make it easier would be to use white ink instead of white embossing. My choice of RC 100# Midnight Blue cardstock from the PaperTemptress offers all the qualities you […]

Brown Bag

Today’s card is the result of playtime with PaperTemptress’ brown bag cardstock, with the exception of Desert Storm (kraft) cardstock that I used for the base of the card and tag. The colors I used to create my little town and its gigantic tree are Blueberry, Cranberry and Olive brown bag cardstock.


Gold Woodgrain and Green Crepe

Today’s card features PaperTemptress goodness! Using black I heat embossed a tree on Hambly Studio Gold Woodgrain and mounted it on gorgeous Green Crepe. I added another strip of the Gold Woodgrain then stamped a sentiment on Green Crepe. Easy to make with wonderful […]

Butterfly Inlay

After I watched Jennifer McGuire Ink’s video creating a die cut inlay card it occurred to me that it would be a wonderful way to showcase the rainbow of Pop Tones 65# colors available at the PaperTemptress! Each strip of cardstock is ¼ inch wide so it’s a great way to use up those […]

Deep Blue Crepe Ruche

My card today features the beautiful Deep Blue Crepe Ruche 80# cardstock from the PaperTemptress! The color is absolutely gorgeous and the texture begs to be touched! The card base is Laser White Glossy Lustre 80# cardstock and the fern and frame is embossed Heavenly White Premium Ultrasmooth cardstock, all available at PaperTemptress!

Heavenly White and Retro Gold Glossy Lustre

Besides featuring gorgeous cardstock from the PaperTempress, my card today also features my new favorite crafting “stuff” (strictly a technique term), Frantage by Stampendous! The base of my card is Retro Gold Glossy Lustre cardstock. I die cut Heavenly White 100# cardstock and embossed the cut and a strip with Aged Aqua Embossing Enamel (Frantage). After it cooled, I replaced the […]

Burgundy and Vellum

For my card today I printed the beautiful Dianthus from Janey’s Digi Designs on my all-time favorite, go-to Cryogen White cardstock from The PaperTemptress and colored it with watercolors! I cut out a window from RC 100# Burgundy cardstock that I used for the card base and replaced it with a piece of dry embossed Heavy Duty Clear Vellum.  Rather easy card to put together thanks […]

Berrylicious and Vellum

Today’s card is pretty simple to create using Pop Tones 65# Berrylicious cardstock and Heavy Duty Clear Vellum from The PaperTemptress! I first stamped the image onto the cardstock and then I stamped two pieces of vellum and adhered them all together. The sentiment and corners were added to complete the card. Easy as […]
