A Summer card Using Dimension

Hi Everyone, Ginny Here and today I’ve made a card with a traditional card using the Magenta’s Daisy Pair stamp, and a Butterfly stencil and my Favorite Heavenly White Papers


I’ve used part of the stencil with pigment inks and clear heat embossing powder on the Heavenly White 80# paper – so awesome for any type of coloring or printing
I’ve colored these flowers using alcohol markers, added a little glitter on the flower petals and microbeads in the centers.



I stamped two images to create a larger “field” of flowers for my card


I deckel cut this sentiment, edged with purple pigment ink and black marker also on Heavenly White 80#


My Base card is heavenly white 120# – Perfect for bases!
I hope you take the opportunity to try these papers, you will be so glad you did!
Thanks for stopping by,

Wedding season – gift box and memory book


Well wedding season is upon us, a friend of mine recently got married and this is the box and memory book that I made for her. The memory book fits inside the box and has all the pages covered in pretty papers. I matched the colors and style to her wedding.

I used several Paper Temptress papers – the first being ‘cryogen white’ to color the digital images onto. I layered that onto some pretty sparkly gold from the mica/metallic line and the leaves of the flowers were also die cut from ‘fairway’ from the mica metallic line.

The sides of the box and several pages of the memory book were covered with ‘vintage silver luster’ which I love using for wedding cards – so pretty and shimmery!!!

I used lots of do dads on this one too – beaded stickers, several ribbons, viva décor pearl drops, 2 little rings with doves on them and a charm that says ‘To love and cherish’

All for today – Have a great week(its been a really rainy week here as Alberto came to visit…)

Flowers for your birthday

This is a card I made for my Mom’s birthday.  I wanted something bright for the base so Orange Fizz Pop Tones did the trick.

I decided to dig into my dies.  The Aquamarine Mica Metallic is nice and thick and has a sheen to it.  It cut beautifully.  The sentiment and the flower center are cryogen white.  Cryogen is my go to whenever I want to color an image.  It is also good for stamping sentiment.   I added a little bit of color around the edge of the oval with a stipple brush.  The ribbon and sparkly corners were from my stash.

Copper Pearl


I have a copper themed card for you today. I really love the copper from the metallic line at Paper Temptress, such a pretty color and such a great metallic shine!!! Also for this card I used  cryogen white from Paper Temptress, to print the digital image on. The cryogen white is my favorite coloring paper for both pencils and copics – so smooth and everything blends so well.

The digital image is from Julia Burgess and is called ‘Pearl’ and I colored her with polychrome pencils. I added a turquoise ribbon and some pearl dots from viva décor and some matching patterned paper also.

All for now – Have a great day!!!

How to Use Textured Paper with Graphic Image Printing

Hello everyone, Ginny M here and today I am bringing you a beautiful digital card with texture enhancements!

Here is my  card:

I have printed this beautiful Image from Geck Galz on Heavenly White 80# paper, and edged the image with black and mounted on mirror board

This really printed up so beautifully!

For my base, I Cricut cut an Anna Griffin lace card.  My paper of choice is a beautiful Ivory 80# felt finish paper.  Because I used a backing paper the 80# weight was just right.

I also added a little bling to her Bon’netto.

This felt finish paper cuts beautifully on the electronic cutting machine and I am sure it would with die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you try some of Paper temptresses luscious paper in your printer and cutting machines!

Best wishes on your retirement


This is a card for a girl at work that is retiring.

The base is Pink Basis .  I wanted a contrast so I went with Violet  Mica Metallic.  This cardstock is nice and heavy and did great with the embossing.

I decided that Cryogen White would be great for the tag sentiment.  The green I chose for the leaves is Spring Larch Glimmer.  The flower is Pink Basis and Azelia Mica Metallic.

Finished the tag off with beautiful two sided ribbon

Woo freakin’ Hoo!

Here’s a funny stamp from Taylored Expressions stamp line, Grumplings paired with some gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress as well as some stunning lace that I got in Istanbul Turkiye.  I just love the attitude of this stamp paired with something as opposite as a beautiful set of papers in a lovely layout, you expect something sweet but the image just makes you break into laughter!

The base of the card is a wonderful mica cardstock called Rose Quartz.  I paired that color with some beautiful silver Mica.  The image is printed on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest cardstock which runs beautifully through my printer.  I added some little bling as the final touch on this card.  Hope you like it!

Pink Pearls



Dropping by to show you a card I finished off today. I haven’t had much time in the craft room lately due to having a knee replacement surgery, but recovery is going well and I am back creating again.

This image is by Julia Burgess and is called ‘Pearl’ I colored her with polychrome pencils. I used my favorite paper to print her on – ‘cryogen white’ from Paper Temptress and the layered her to another favorite from the metallic line called ‘lagoon’ It is a pretty turquoise and has such a pretty sparkle also.

I edged the main image with gold metallic pen, added some gold corner stickers and lastly some salmon colored pearls .

All for today – Have a great week!!!

How to Make a Bold Masculine Birthday Card.

Hi everyone, Ginny Here, I wanted to show you a card I made with a freebie I received!  Because I own several Cricut products, I get a lot of emails to sell me more Cricut products.  I also get notification of freebies for my machines, and like that!  I’m always making birthday cards and recently I got a great  Freebie for birthday cards.  Today I am going to show you how I made a super fast masculine Birthday card.

I’ll show you the card and then the process:

I really wanted to use this Beautiful Nero Incandescent paper by paper temptress as a special focal paper, it is black with a gold shimmer`it is really beautiful! This is a #76cover weight paper and cuts perfectly on the electronic cutting machine and hand cutting dye machine ( I use both!).  Due to my lighting this looks browner than black in this picture. But It is blck with gold shimmer, and just a touch of texture!

I selected a card baselayering, and focal papers

I stamped a watermark image using my Misti and a TH stamp

This was the first time I have used this ink pad, it is a dye base white, I wasn’t sure how well it would work.

It worked great!

I die cut my Happy Birthdays ( this was the Cricut freebie)

And using my Best Glue Ever  I was able to easily dot on the right amount of glue- here I am using the no-clog cap, I keep several bottles on hand one with this fine line no-clog cap and one with the regular tip

 It goes on perfect! and one thing I love using Best Glue Ever, it something is not straight the first time, I have a few seconds to fix it – unlike using  ATG tape!

this fine cut lays perfectly flat

Along with all the layers – no rumpling!

The SVG cut is part of Cricut Access, so if you are a member you can find it over on the Cricut Design Studio.  when I am making masculine cards, they tend to have darker stronger colors on a trick to keep them from looking dismal is to keep your color contrasting high.  This high contrast will draw the eye and have an overall pleasing look.  dark colors can easily look muddy and dismal if the contrast isn’t high.

I hope you found this post helpful to your card making,

thanks for stopping by, Ginny M
