Newtons’ Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge with Paper Temptress-Halloween





Aloha Guys!

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!

Easy Shaker Card Using Vellum and Faber Castell Pencils-Gerda Steiner Designs and Paper Temptress





Aloha Guys!

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.

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m doing some Copic Coloring on Cryogen Iridescent card stock from Paper Temptress.   I’ve heard some great things about this card stock so I was really excited to try it out.  It has a slight shimmer, not too over powering but very slightly.  I stamped out this La La land crafts Lil’ Devil Marci using MFT’s Hybrid licorice black ink, which is my favorite ink for Copic coloring.  I don’t know if you can tell by the pictures but the colors are super bright and shows the depth of this image, but also has a slight shimmer.  I feel that the ink stays on the top of the paper a little longer, making the blending really easy.  If you have trouble getting a smooth blend, this card stock is perfect.  I only recorded the coloring portion but I will make something with this image and I’ll share that with you later.  Paper Temptress offers variety of Copic friendly card stocks and it can be purchased individually as well as sets.  They carry Luxury card stocks, which are excellent quality, you will definitely fall in love with them as I have.  There are tons of different card stocks as well as Hambly screen prints, all types of vellum, textured card stocks, and more.  Go ahead and check out all the different types of card stocks she carries.  I hope you enjoyed this coloring video, showing how this card stocks behave with Copic markers.  I’ll list the colors I used below and please leave me a comment if you ‘d like to see more coloring videos like this.  Please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll catch you next time.  Thanks again!

Gerda Steiner Designs Brand New Stamp Monster Party and Paper Temptress Card Stock




Aloha Guys!

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

Through The Craft Room Door’s DT Card Using Paper Temptress Card Stock




Aloha Guys!

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.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll catch you guys next time.  Thanks again
