Today I’m making some Quick Elegant Christmas cards. I also want to explain little about the different cards stocks that’s available, helping us to make the cards fast and nice 🙂 If you’re like me, I like to make as many nice cards as possible without spending too much time on them and sometimes the card stocks that you have makes this task a little easier. I hope this was helpful for your Holiday cards. Thank you so much for stopping by and see you guys soon 🙂
Today I’m making a Simple Scene using only Card stock from PaperTemptress and Gerda Steiner Designs Stamps. When I normally make scenery, I tend to use distress inks to create the scene, but today, I’ll be using the card stocks instead. The Stamp sets I’ll be using are Happy Fall and Monster Party. I’m using the Cordovan Leather as my frame, I cut it using the MFT’s Horizontal Stitched strips die. It created 2 panels which I’ll be using to make my scene. I’m using the Blue Parchment Card stock as my sky, it matches perfectly for the sky because of the color and the texture of it. I stamped out the small squirrel and colored him using my Copic markers, on Neenah solar white card stock. I also cut out a sun and some clouds using one of the Lawn fawn dies. The texture on the paper I used for the sun is amazing, it almost feels like fabric. It’s the Crepe paper and it comes in multiple colors, to meet your needs. I stamped out my kites on the sky I created and paper pieced them. I also embossed the sentiment on the Cordovan Leather card stock. I have a tutorial above for the step by step, on how I made this card. I hope you enjoyed this card and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Thanks again 🙂

Today I have another CAS (Clean and Simple) card for you using PaperTemptress card stocks. I have this image that I colored using the Heavenly White 120#, which I have a tutorial for. I’ll leave the link below if you want to check it out. I mentioned before that this card stock does not bleed though the back, so it’s perfect for those one layered cards, using your alcohol markers. I kept this card pretty simple, because I wanted to use the Pink Ice Parchment paper. I didn’t want to cover up too much of the card stock, since it has this unique design and color to it. I back it with the Hot fudge card stock, I love the pink and the fudge. I’m also using the Ski blue stripe vellum to emboss my sentiment. I thought the light blue matched perfectly with this color combination. I stamped the sentiment out with versa fine onyx, so I can emboss it using my clear embossing powder. This vellum has a great weight to it, so it didn’t even warp as I was heating up the sentiment. I added some details with some sequins, black belly roll pen and my Signo white gel pen. Pretty simple but I really liked how it turned out. I hope you enjoyed this card and there’s still a GIVEAWAY going on right now, so scroll down to check that out.

Today I made a card for the Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge and the theme for this challenge was Halloween. I don’t think I own any of the Newton’s Nook’s designs Halloween stamp set or if I have them, I forgot where I put them, lol. It’s crazy how things get lost in my craft room, lol.
Anyways, I needed to create a Halloween theme card so I decided to use this turtle from the In Slow Motion Stamp set and created my own Halloween theme. I don’t have a video for this card because I was really sick the whole last week. This just came about as I was sitting in bed, just coloring random stamps. Initially I wanted to create a Birthday card with this, since the turtle actually has a present tied to his shell. I came up with 2 cards, almost the same design. One is a birthday card and the other being this Halloween card. I’ll share the other card in another time.
I went ahead and stamped out 3 turtles onto Neenah Solar White card stock from Paper Temptress. One on top of the other, masking the present on his shell, except for the top turtle. He has a present on his back but I attached a velvet bat on the present instead. I wanted this to be a Halloween card so I went ahead and stamped out one of the party hats from the same stamp set. I stamped it out very lightly so that I can draw in the bottom of the hat, making it into a witches hat. I colored it black and it fit perfectly on the turtle. I then stamped out couple of the candy bags from the Lawn Fawn’s stamp sets, which also fit in the turtles mouth perfectly. I cut the mouth of the turtle with my exacto knife and also cut a slit on the top of the bags, so that it can fit inside the turtles mouth. Super cute, right? I stamped out the sentiment from the same In Slow Motion set that says Shell-abrate! Super cleaver sentiment! I also stamped out underneath of the Shell-abrate using a Stampin Up’s stamp. I colored all the turtles using my Shinhan Touch Twin alcohol markers, which I use pretty regularly and it blends beautifully on this Neenah card stock. I love these markers ❤ I also found some small candies, from another Lawn Fawn’s stamp set and attached it to the other 2 turtles.
I used Dusty concord and Black soot distress inks to ink up this panel and I used this K&C Halloween pattern paper, along with the Paper Temptress Mango card stock as well as Neenah Solar White. I LOVE the Paper Temptress card stocks, so I think that will be the only card stock I’ll be using from now on 🙂 I then attached the whole panel to an A2 size card front and added some sequins to match the orange card stock. I attached some velvet bat’s to give more interest to this card. I also used my Signo white gel pen as well as glossy accents on the turtle and the shells. I hope you like this card and if you do, please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Click the link below to participate in the Inky Paws Challenge, for a chance to win a prize!

Today I’m making a Quick and easy vellum shaker card using Paper Temptess Card stock/Vellum and Gerda Steiner Designs Rubber stamp called Monster Kid. I’ll be using several different products today, and I’ll explain a little about these products as I go. First off, I’m using Gerda’s Rubber stamp today, and she has Digital stamps, Clear stamps and Rubber stamps available in her store. I use her Digital and Clear stamps all the time, but I think this is the first time I’m sharing her Rubber stamps. Just to explain a little about her rubber stamps, her rubber stamps come in Rubber only form. Which means, it doesn’t have the cling cushion that you normally use to stick the stamp on to your acrylic block. You have the option to mount them onto a cling foam mount if you choose to do so. I like to use my bare rubber stamps with the Aileen’s tack it over and over glue, which I explain in the video. Her rubber stamps are excellent quality and it’s very thick and deeply etched, which will give you a really great impression. I decide to use watercolor pencils to color in this image and I’m using the Faber Castell’s Art grip watercolor pencils. These watercolor pencils are highly pigmented, great quality pencils which blend really easily, as you can see in the video. They’re available in color family sets as well as different quantity sets. I have a few of the color family sets, and I didn’t have all the color pallet available to me, so I implemented the Peerless watercolor as well. These are fantastic pencils, and I love them dearly.
I also made a simple shaker portion, using some of Paper Temptress’s yummy colored vellum. I love making this simple shaker, which is simple to make yet very fun. Her vellum is perfect for things like this, because they are very thick and high quality. I love these purple and orange card stocks, which also has some texture to them, which will add some more interest to this card. Her card stocks are very thick and sturdy, making them very easy to work with. I hope you like this card and please check out the video for the step by step tutorial. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspiration and ideas. Thanks again.
Today I’m making a card using the Brand New Release of Gerda Steiner Designs Monster Party, Now Available for purchase in Gerda Steiner Designs Store. I’m also using some of the Paper Temptress Card stocks, couple of my Favorite Vellum that the store carries. I’ll have all the links to the supplies I used in the descriptions below.
I absolutely Love this new stamp set, it has the most cutest Monsters ever, which I’m sure you’ll agree. I fell in love with this stamp set as soon as I saw them and I could not wait to start playing with them. This week was not a good week for me, I am sick and I still am but I could not resist the temptation to make something with this so I made something very clean and simple. I went ahead and used some of my Favorite vellums from Paper Temptress as well as her Crystal Mica Metallic card stocks. I personally Love Vellum and I have a hard time finding patterned vellum so I’ll continue to use these vellums, until I use them all up, lol. These vellums are not your ordinary vellum. They are textured but it’s also a Heavy duty vellum so your adhesive doesn’t even show up, unlike your ordinary vellum. I LOVE them ❤
I cut 2 of the vellum piece, with a MFT’s stitched bubble die and stamped out the sentiment that says, Do I smell Cake? I curved the sentiment slightly, so that it’ll line up with the thought bubble. I also stamped out the monster using MFT’s Hybrid black licorice ink on some Neenah solar white card stock. I colored the monster with my Shinhan Touch Twin Alcohol markers and attached it onto some Crystal Mica Metallic card stock from Paper Temptress. I hope you like this card and please check out the video for a full step by step tutorial. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Also, check out both Gerda Steiner Designs Blog as well as the Paper Temptress Blog for more inspirations from the Design Team. I’ll leave the links below. Thanks again
Today is my very first DT project for Paper Temptress and I’m super excited and a little nervous at the same time. I’ll be posting for Paper Temptress every other Monday so please check back often to see all the projects. I’ve made a very Clean and Simple card to showcase the texture and shimmer, on these card stocks. I’m using the Coral Mica Metallic and Cordovan Leather card stocks today. The shimmer that this card stock gives is truly amazing and the leather like card stock is something I’ve never seen before. I used a inlayed die technique today to make this simple card. I have a full tutorial up above if you want to see a step by step on how I made this card. Also, please check out the paper temptress blog for more inspirations from the Fantastic DT members. I hope you like this card and I’ll leave all the links below if you’d like to check them out. I thank you guys so much for stopping by and I’ll catch you guys next time. Thanks again 🙂
Today I made a card for Through The Craft Room Door’s Anything goes Challenge of the week of August 4th, sponsored by Paper Temptress. Paper Temptress carries the most Beautiful, High quality paper for all your paper crafting needs. I was very impressed with the Quality and the card stocks, and I had a hard time choosing which ones I was going to use for this card. I’ve worked with many different Types and brands of card stocks but these card stocks blew me away. The beauty of the shimmer and shine is absolutely Gorgeous!!
I kind of go over and share some of these card stocks, just so that you can get a visual of the shimmer and shine. I chose out 2 vellum pieces, which by the way are very thick and I chose 2 of the Screenprint design papers. This is the first time I’ve seen these Hambly Screenprint paper. I used a Hexagon punch from Stampin Up and punched out hexagons. I’m using them to make my own pattern paper so I can use several designs at the same time. I finish off with a gold thread and some gold translucent sequins, just to give a little more interest. I have a full tutorial of the process up above if you’re interested. For all the supplies I used on this card and for more information, please visit the link below. Join us in this Awesome challenge to win some fabulous prizes by the Paper Temptress.
