Heartfelt Thoughts

I have had this stamp for a while.  I just did not know what I wanted to do with it.  I finally decided to stamp it and cut it out.  I am in love with the Misti stamp positioner!  It gives  me the opportunity to stamp the image  as many times as I want until I get the definition I am looking for.

The base and dark layer in this card is Emerald Green Classic Linen.   The Linen has a beautiful texture to it.

The embossed layer is Serpentine Mica/ Metallic.  On the Serpentine layer I embossed the music.  I then added some distress ink to highlight the image.

The white layer and stamped image are Cryogen White.  Cryogen is always my go to to stamp my images on.

Love and Blessings

These are cards for a friend that was having their little girls baptized.  I wanted the cards similar but different.

I will talk about the love, hope, faith card first.  The base for the card is Cotton Candy Pop Tones.  It seems like I always turn to Cryogen white for the main image.  The rays of sun were a stencil that I had.  It seemed to be perfect for a baptism.  I sponged the edge for some contrast.

The cross was cut on a cricut out of Magenta Basis and the center cross is Monterey Sand Linen.

Now for the second card.  The base for this card is Emerald Green Classic Linen.

The image was stamped again on Cryogen White. I colored the image with copic markers.   The image was placed on Baronial Ivory classic linen.  Again the stencil of rays was used.  I sponged around the edge for some highlight. Blessings was stamped in the corner in a dark pink.

Making a mini notepade cover with Paper Temptress papers

Here’s a quick and cute little project I did with a Sweet Pea stamps and some great Paper Temptress Papers.  I do so miss Sweet Pea stamps, but having worked with them for several years, I have a wonderful collection of their amazing rubber!  Also, let me tell you that Paper Temptress is getting ready to close down and start putting papers on sale, so go get what you want!!  It’s going, going, gone…..so go grab those papers you need before they are unavailable.

This cute project is using some gorgeous Mica/Metallic as the card base, it’s called Flame.  The image is printed on Neenah Solar white classic crest.  The image is layered on a beautiful yellow which matches the dress perfectly called and has a wonderful mica sparkle is called Mangue Sparkle.  I added a wonderful Hambly Studio Overlay on top of the while project called Lime Mini Graphs.

So what is this project, you ask?  it’s a fold around for a note pad!, you can see the cute hole/ribbon (that’s also available at Paper Temptress it’s HERE);  It hides a wonderful notepad.


Cheers, Holley

Wishing you the best

This is a card I made for a girl that was leaving work.  I decided to dig into my dies for this one.  Love this background die but just don’t use it much.

The base of the card is a beautiful ivory.  The cardstock is Barronial Ivory Classic Linen.  The darker purple is Amythyst Mica Metallic.  I just can’t seem to get away from the Mica Metallic line.  Just love that sheen.  Finally the lighter purple is Kunzite Mica Metallic.  The main image is on Cryogen White.

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!
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…)
