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 […]

Welcome Autumn

Where I live in St. Louis, we have had the most amazing summer, weather wise. It’s been unseasonably beautiful with cooler than normal temperatures as well as lower than normal humidity. Normally by late August the temperatures are so unbearable that I’m hoping autumn arrives quickly…but since the weather has been almost fall like […]

Simply Floral

I wanted to do a simple card so that I could highlight how wonderfully all of these papers emboss with embossing folders and texture plates. The embossing is so defined and crisp. I HAVE to learn to take better photos, as these do not do justice to any of these fabulous papers. I […]
