Wow it has been a long time since I posted….sorry I will try to do more posting because I am really trying to make more designs…so this is one of my favorite cards I have designed…I am obsessed these days with Concord & 9th.  They are soooo creative and design products that you can use in so many ways…if I was a rich person I would own everything they sell but since I am not I still buy more than I should.

The cover of this card is NOT designer paper.  I used my absolute go too cardstock which is Heavenly White 120# since it is heavy and really takes ink beautifully.  The stamp that I used from Concord & 9th is their Blooms fill in stamp….they leave the flower portion of the stamp empty and includes stamps so you can fill it the flowers any color you want…I LOVE THIS STAMP…in fact I have probably used it more than any other for quite some time now…it never looks the same which is why I think it is soooo versatile…so here it is…as I said I used Heavenly White 120# with MOMENTO’S DANUBE BLUE…I was making an anniversary card for my best online friend LOL..doesn’t that sound funny but it is sooo true…we have been really good friends for several years now and we have never actually met YET…I sooo hope the day comes…but back to the card..I LOVE LOVE LOVE using the HEAVENLY WHITE to stamp on.  I am always sooo impressed and how it actually looks like colored cardstock since the cardstock just LOVES ink and it never blotches or has any imperfections…I added some Nuvo drops and a few die cuts that coordinate with the Blooms fill in stamp set..
Then I had to have a little fun on the inside and I succeeded LOL, she said she cracked up when she read it…they are celebrating TWENTY SEVEN YEARS…That is almost unheard of these days so really happy for them!   Added a die cut from the dies that coordinate with the stamp set…thought it was just the perfect touch…I added the front cover to an 11 x 4.25 sheet of the Balboa Blue Felt Grandee…you can really see the texture in the below photo…heck why not add a touch of interest by using the right cardstock?

Paper wedding cakes



Stopping in today to show you a couple cakes I made from paper.  I have some cool cake slice dies that when u do  a bunch of them you can make a layer cake – 3 different sizes..

Mostly I used paper from the mica metallic line  – the first cake, top layer is  crystal  and the second layer is from the basics line and is teal. On the second cake both the top layers are from the mica metallic line – crystal and lagoon. The bottom layers of both cakes were done with some wall paper that I had big rolls of.

I decorated with  ribbons, silk flowers and pearl drops in copper, teal and pearl colors. I think we will be using the top one on the guest book table at my daughters wedding 🙂

All for today!!!

Take  Care

Summer Thank You

Hi all, this is Vickie.  I just got a new Stampin’ Up bundle.  The stamp set is called Petal Palette.  The die set is called Petals and More.

The base for this card is from Neenah Solar White.  The pretty light purple is Grapesicle Pop Tones.  The pop tones embossed beautifully.

The sentiment and die cut pink piece are from Pink Basis.  I was going for the pretty pastel summery look.

The yellow die cut is from Banana Split Pop Tones.  The background piece with the polka dots is Light Green Basis (sorry but this is no longer available). The cryogen with the little bit of shimmer would work well here.   The  accent leaves are from Limeade Pop Tones.

Finally the colored image is done on Cryogen White.  The cryogen is always the cardstock I go to for coloring an image. I colored the image with Ranger distress crayons and then used a water brush to spread color.

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!

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!
