sparkly shimmering snowflakes

I think that white diamonds cardstock is the perfect canvas for wintery cards.  I ran the cardstock through my snowflakes cuttlebug folder.  I stamped the snowflakes and sentiment with navy ink and accented with rhinestones.  I matted all the layers with Lapis Lazuli Mica/Metallic cardstock.  I love the sparkle in this […]

Another calendar page

Another calendar page. The base is Basis Blue. I used Parchment White Vellum as a touch of texture.  The anchors and bird image were stamped on White Ruche. I just love this texture and always amazed how well it takes stamps. The picture and bird image is framed by Sapphire Mica/Metallic. I colored […]


First I made a rough sketch of 2 ghosts and then I cut them out to use as a template.  PaperTemptress’  White Diamond cardstock is just sparkley enough for any ghost to glimmer and glean!  By sponging yellow around the edges, I have given this twosome an eery glow and some definition.  The sentiment was cut out […]

Lazy days fishing

This design was submitted to me by Esther, a PaperTemptress PaperLover to share with all.  She used Navy Blue Leather for the frame; Silver Mica/Metallic Text for the sky; Sky Blue Crepe Ruche for the water (and of course, Stickles for the waves); and Black Felt Grandee for the fishermen silhouette, which is a […]

Autumn Blessings

Today I have an autumn card to show you today.  When back to school time comes around I start to get in the mood for fall.  I just love fall- the colors, the leaves, and the weather in the northeast where I live.  So, some of my favorite cards to make are fall themed.


The Amen of Nature!!!!!



I am very impressionable I think, or else at times things go straight to my subconscious. I was online the other day and saw some glitter or heard someone mention it and so out it came, LOL! Of course you all know about glitter…it is everywhere. My hair is quite sparkly which […]

Gardening in Pearls

Yellow Rose of Texas

I used some papers from Paper Temptress for this card.  The base is a single 5.5 x 4.25.  The white layer with the rose is a trifold using 4.25 x 11 inch Heavenly White Premium US CS folded into thirds (after the flower is stamped and cut).  I used a corner punch on the […]

Making your cards shimmer

Yesterday, my birthday set of nesties arrived in the mail.  It’s amazing how a little thing can inspire the style of the card.  Since the shapes were so “Eastern-looking” to me, I had to go with  my Asian fairy again.  And then, of course, the papers needed to be shimmery and rich.  Paper […]
