Let There Be Peace

I had such a wonderful time making this Christmas card. I just love the microbeads from Stamp La Jolla, but I often forget to use them. They add such elegant touch to a simple card layout. I used Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Pendant die for the two die cuts behind the main image and […]


Hi everyone!  How are your holiday preparations going??  Well, I can say that I am still pretty far behind lol.  I am still plugging away on my Christmas cards and that is what I have to show you today.  This also happens to fit our theme for Paper Temptress’ 1st challenge as well.  Take […]

Thinking outside of the box!

Thinking outside of the box…..That is what Diana from Diana’s Designs was doing when she created these great pictures for her wall. WOW, is all I can say. Then on top of that they fit perfectly into the Gingersnap Creations challenge GC32: Random Redhead Challenge – Photo Frames. Well it at least meets […]


When you have a lot of Christmas cards to make sometimes a simple one is the best way to go.  However, simple can be stunning when you use some of Paper Temptress’ fabulous papers.  Take a peek:

I embossed my white diamonds CS with my snowflakes cb folder , cut it in half […]

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

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 […]
