Embossed Elegance

I made this card for the Paper Temptress blog to show how perfectly her paper embosses in embossing folders or with texture plates. It is a simple card, that is fast and easy. The embossing of these fabulous papers makes it look elegant I think. I wish I were a better photographer.

My Second Project for the Guest Designer party!

So here is my second project for this event. I decided to make a note card box. It contains note cards with matching lined envelopes, and would make a lovely gift. For this project I used stamps from Hearts In Touch In The Garden sheet. It is a beautiful sheet of stamps and very versatile.I used Paper Temptress' Teal Felt Grandee paper, White Felt Grandee, Starburst Lichen, and Cryogen White. I cannot tell you how beautiful a combination Hearts in Touch stamps and The Paper Temptress' paper is. You will just have to try it for yourself. So don't forget to leave a comment on both of these blogs: The Paper Temptress. and Hearts in Touch .
Enjoy and Good Luck!

Paper Temptress is August Guest Designer for Hearts in Touch

I used Hearts in Touch Flourishes sheet for this card. I adore this dragon. It is accented with red crystals as well as the medallion on the top of the card. I used Paper Temptress Columns Epic Black and Retro Gold Glossy Lustre. It is a striking combination IRL! I have more to post from these two marvelous companies, and will do so later today.So here is the really good news...at the end of the month a wonderful prize will be given away. A Fabulous paper package from The Paper Temptress AND a full sheet of stamps from Hearts In Touch!! All you have to do is go to the Paper Temptress blog and the Hearts in Touch blog and leave a comment. A winner will be randomly chosen. What could be better than free stuff? Especially when it's such good quality stuff. Oh I forgot to mention; you get to choose the stamp sheet you would like! Now what company does that? You usually have to take whatever they send you. That alone makes leaving a comment even more worthwhile. So stop by the blogs and leave a comment.

It's a Pear Thing again

So once again I will say, "I have no earthly idea why I love pears so much." Perhaps it's a body image thing, LOL! No real stamping talent shown on these cards, as I used my Cricut Joys of the Season cartridge to cut out the card. I am so happy it has a pear in the cartridge! So I hope you enjoy them anyway. I had a great time coloring the pears.

Paper Temptress is Guest Designer for Hearts in Touch

This is like a dream come true, LOL! I get to use my favorite stamps :Hearts in Touch, along with my favorite papers from The Paper Temptress.
This card is a gate fold card and I used stamps from In my Garden sheet, along with Starburst Lichen and Canyon Brown Columns paper from PT. Can you believe how beautifully the Starburst Lichen embosses? It is picture perfect and so textural.
I know I have not posted in a very long time and I have much catching up to do. I have so many cards to post using PT paper and HIT stamps. I am hoping to find time very soon.
