Great news

Hi All PaperTemptress.com has become a retailer for Heartfelt Creations so will be selling some of my favorite collections that Heartfelt Creations is selling… I am purchasing items that other retailers don’t carry which is basically Heartfelt Creations  I want it all collections which is the whole collection that comes in an adorable clear zipper bag.  Right now I do have their latest GORGEOUS Butterfly Dreams Collection at a very discounted rate of $135 which does include shipping so a great value, if purchased thru Heartfelt Creations the whole collection would be $179 and this is WITHOUT the adorable clear zippered bag…

The Butterfly Dreams Collection includes 3 stamp sets with 3 die sets that coordinate plus the paper pad which is STUNNING…the most gorgeous paper pad I have seen in my many years….so here are some pictures of the collection . If you are interested please contact me @ orders@papertemptress.com…thanks and if you see something on the Heartfelt Creations website please let me know since I don’t plan on carrying all of their products.  A card I designed with the Butterfly Dreams collection…soooo easy! I cut these butterflies out of the butterfly and die stamp sets…the dies has 3 different dies, 2 outline dies which cut out both butterflies and then one that only cuts out the inside of the butterfly on the left, as you can see you can cut the larger butterfly with just the outline in case you want to color the butterfly or you can cut it out like the middle one which makes it more ornate and then there is the last butterfly…their measurements are:  the butterfly that is on the left is 3 x 4 and the butterfly on the right is 4 x 3.5.The top die does not actually cut out the stamped butterfly as shown but you can easily cut it out with scissors or there is a die that was released earlier so let me know if you would be interested in that die…the bottom butterfly does cut out completely as shown here

This is the last stamp and die set….amazing sentiments, another butterfly, and some very ornate cut outs including a Thank you die cut….and now the absolutely STUNNING PAPER PAD..
There paper pads come with different sizes of the pages so you can design greeting card and other designs easily.  And here is the whole collection in the very cute clear zippered bag that it will come in..

I am selling this whole amazing collection for $135 which does include shipping…if you purchased this thru Heartfelt Creations you would pay $179 and would NOT receive the very cute bag…I only have 2 of these so if you want one DO NOT HESITATE to contact me at orders@papertemptress.com.

Thanks (so much)

This is a card I made for a dear friend.  All the cardstock from this card came from the Spring Speciality Package. For a limited time shipping is free.

The base for the card is Aqua Basis.  The Silver Lustre (cardstock that has the stripe to it) is accented with Teal Basis.  Actually all the layers are accented by Teal Basis.  All the patterned cardstock is Cryogen White.  This cardstock is so versatile.  On two of the pieces I put ink on the embossing folder and ran it through my big shot.  The other piece I just stamped on.  This cardstock also has a nice sheen to it which is awesome also.

Beary Cute!

Here’s a sweet and simple girl with her teddy bear (and the cutest little hat) from Dilly Beans. I paired that with some gorgeous papers from the Spring Premium Package at Paper Temptress for this cute and simple little card.

This awesome package is currently on sale and you get free shipping!!  Every sheet is amazing specialty papers.  I am using some of the beautiful Amethyst Mica/Metallic paper, printed my image on the cryogen white.  Then I surrounded the image with some gorgeous ribbon, I wish you could see the wonderful detailing on this ribbon, check it out HERE, it’s called Plum Splitz Ribbon, it has two stunning textures on the same ribbon!  I glued the sheer side under the image and have the beautiful textured side creating a frame around the image.  I also added a small piece of Silver Mica/Metallic to the card (not in the Spring Premium Pack);

I hope you will just LOVE the Spring Premium Pack on sale now and free shipping!

Cheers, Holley

One Stamp, Two styles, Part Two

Hi Everyone, Ginny here.  Today’s card is the second card of my one stamps two style cards. The first post is here along with the process.  Today’s card is also very dramatic and completely different!

Here is the card:

The first card – I even placed the stamps in the same areas.

The stamping paper I used for this card is Vintage Silver  Luster by Paper Temptress.

For today’s card, I used Paper Temptress Eclipse Black

I stamped my images and heat embossed in gold

Picked a few colors of metallic  colored pencils

I use a scrap piece to swatch out my colors

and then simply color- a hint keep your stroke all going the same way.

this works up really fast – I also added a little glitter

The Eclipse Black really hold and showcases the colored pencil beautifully!

I used The Best Glue Ever to keep it all together, including the ribbon!

There you have it one stamp, two styles

Thanks for stopping by and stop by the Paper Temptress, you never know what special she’s running till you get there!

Been busy making cards!

I actually spent the weekend making cards…I can only show a couple here since I did send a couple of them out so will show them once they have been received but had a lot of fun making these….

First one….I stamped one of my favorite stamps from Concord & 9th (soooo in love with this company now) called Blooms fill in where you fill in the openings with stamps that are included in the set (just found out it is on sale..ugh just spent $40 LOL…true..but bought the dies that go with this stamp set)…on  Heavenly White 120# which is becoming my go to cardstock these days since it truly inks beautifully…after done stamping or using a stencil it looks more like it was printed then ink added..love love love. So I kept it fairly simple with just adding the sentiment (MFT) with an older Spellbinder die that was also cut out of Heavenly White and actually sprayed with Heidi Swapp’s Color shine in the color Primrose…that is why there is a spot just a little darker than the rest but I thought it added interest. of course I had to add a little bling….and then placed it on another of my favorite cardstocks the Teal BASIS 80# . I am OBSESSED with Teal and have been for a long long time so this Teal cardstock is used a lot these days!And now for the 2nd card….this one just started out of no where LOL..I was actually going thru some of my stamps and came across a round one with a variety of flowers on it…I had also been watching Theresa Momber’s video on using mask to create a partial scene so I wanted to try that technique.  Of course I had to use my absolute favorite technique of resist stamping where you heat emboss with clear embossing powder (mine had a little sparkle in it which you can see a bit of and then inked over the embossing powder, and once again used the Heavenly White 120# ..now my card didn’t turn out anything like Theresa’s video but it did give me ideas.  While I am working on this card I came across the pink circle that I had cut out who knows when LOL and it just happened to fit perfectly and looked good…then I used the circle mask that was leftover from the mask I had created to create the resist area and covered up the center and took a 6×6 polka dot stamp and stamped over the full sheet….and again placed the front on the gorgeous Teal BASIS 80# cardstock….then added a simple sentiment to a die cut from a PaperTrey Ink die and all done!

Spring Collage

First off I want to say that all the cardstock for this card came from the Spring Premium Package.  The colors in this package are to die for.

The base of this card and the tag are both from Pink Basis.  I needed to use a contrast for the second layer and I needed to be thick enough that I could distress the edges.  Amethyst Mica Metallic did the trick and added a little sheen also.

The main layer is  Silver Laser Lustre.  I used a stencil and non smear chalk for the designs, some stamping and also some glitter stickles.  This cardstock has stripes of sheen and with the colors added gave me the collage look I was looking for.

I am totally intrigued with the collage look right now.  So until next time go to Paper Temptress and check out the Spring Premium Package.

Peacock Die Cut Layers

This is a gorgeous example of what you can do with the Mica/Metallic line of cardstock. It is heavyweight cardstock that cuts like a dream, even with the most intricate designs.

 

This card is backed on the gorgeous Black Pearl Glossy cardstock.  I chose it because it really offsets the Mica/Metallic paper line well.  For the peacock, I used some extremely detailed dies.  They are designed to work together, and they produced this beautiful peacock image.  I used the cardstock from the Mica/Metallic package.  I used the following colors: Aquamarine, Gold, Amethyst, and Lapis Lazuli.

One Stamp, Two styles, Part One, plus a freebie.

Hi everyone, Ginny M here, today I wanted to show you how I have used one stamp and two very different papers to create dramatic cards.  One way to achieve a really pretty card – heat embossing, glitter plus a fancy cardstock to showcase your art.  Here is my card with Details to follow:

The real beauty of this card is not my artwork, it is the paper I stamped it on.

This is Vintage Silver  Luster by Paper Temptress

This paper loves ink, It allows it to move freely in the swirls – you never know exactly how it will come out!

Looks like beautiful vintage plasterwork with high-intensity shimmer!

I heat embossed using a gold powder in my stash

For coloring, I used only 3 alcohol markers. Instead of using a blender pen, I use 91% rubbing alcohol and a brush!  No more stain transferring from one color to another!

Add a bit of ribbon, distress glitter and a sentiment and my card was done in 15 minutes!

 

My next post  on 4/14 will show you how I made the second card using Eclipse Black paper… Stay tuned!

and for you today:

Thanks for stopping by!
