Merry Christmas

Good morning, Steph here with a fun and quick Christmas card.  I know there aren’t too many days left, so go grab your favorite Papertemptress papers, some ink, stamps, embossing folder and twine.

The Red Pepper cardstock I used is sturdy and makes a great base for my card.  I scored it and […]

Don’t ease into it..

Seriously…I’ve got the “make something more than a card” bug! haha. And paper Temptress Papers are a great help to these 3 D Cards! 

This easel card, when closed measures 4.25 x 5.5 inches. (Why did I wait so long to make an easel card!?!)

Ooodles of great papers.  Magenta BASIS was […]


I inserted the Hands image in to a word doc, rotated the image and then positioned it at 4 1/4. I wanted the image to be part of my background paper. My background paper is Sparkle Blanc from Paper Temptress. The sentiment is also printed on Sparkle Blanc and layered on  Solar Yellow […]

It’s the little things…

I printed the image on Sparkle Blanc and thought I would try something new. I didn’t know what that something new was; I was just gonna try it.

I have these Derwent Metallic pencils that I have NEVER used so decided to color my image with the few colors available. It was like a green, […]

Beautiful Butterfly

I chose my beautiful little butterfly angel from Stampsmith.  She is stamped on Heavenly White with onyx versafine and clear embossed and distress inks sponged lightly over. She is layered on dp by Basic Grey “Euphoria” and Lunar Blue Pearlescent {GORGEOUS} !


gg Designs’ is having a Spray Starch Technique challenge and this is the most fun and most easy technique. You can see all the details here.

I used Black Basis as my cardstock  for a spray starch and pearl ex technique. The image is Bird of Paradise from […]


The “Jump Snowman” created by the talented artist Cheryl Alger. I stamped the image on Heavenly White and  colored with different colors of shimmerz. Why is it shimmer is so hard to photograph? I layered my snowman on Gamma Green and Solar Yellow Pearlescent papers. Love the pearlescent papers. Adds an elegance […]

Pearlescent Beauty

Many of you know I love embossing powder so lots of it here. I dabbed distress inks on to a craft sheet, misted with water then gently placed and twisted my Blanc Sparkle paper. (All papers are from Paper Temptress). Didn’t have to dry too long. Then I stamped my image […]

It’s a Snow Day!

All papers are from Paper Temptress. Of course!  The card base is Sparkle Blanc cardstock. I printed my background paper on Sparkle Blanc text and also printed “The Juggler” on Sparkle Blanc text. I colored my image with Copics and the sparkles of the paper still show through! The Juggler is layered on the gorgeous […]
