Just leave a comment and you can win a 20 piece hand chosen package of my favorite card stock assortment from the Paper Temptress.
The first card is made with the Silver Laser Lustre line and I used Cryogen White (my most absolute favorite!!) to stamp the image on. The image is from Hearts in Touch. Frances has the most gorgeous Asian images. Truly they are the best around! I also wanted to show you how beautifully these papers emboss.

The second card was made with Silver Laser Lustre, Eclipse Black and Silver Sizzle Glossy. You will notice there are some text weight papers in the package. I use these for my mats as they keep the card light and therefore less postage. You may recognize the stamp I used but may be wondering what I did with it. Well I came across some fabric paint in my studio. It is the kind with the very thin nozzle. I stamped my image and then used the fabric paint as an outline to add dimension. It was fun and quite effective on the Silver Laser Lustre background paper.

So all you have to do is leave a comment. You have until June 30th. Exactly one week from today, I will pick a winner by random drawing.

Every Month Something Different

I used this months embellishment package from Hearts in Touch to create this card. Every month Frances has a package of assorted papers, bellies, ribbon and more in various themes. This month theme was Victorian and the assortment was fabulous. The price is right at 15-20 dollars per month and they are really fun to work with. I embossed the vellum sheet with a Quikcuts embossing folder and got just the look I wanted to finish the card off.

A Blast From the Past!

My niece Donna just purchased this VW bug. When we were both younger, I had one and we used to tool all around in it. Can you believe this car is 40 years old? It's really fabulous and we had our first ride in it together this morning. BTW, this photo was taken in my front yard. Peace out!

Once again..Great Paper & Great Techniques

The new Technique Junkie newsletter is out and has some fabulous techniques. The above cards are examples of 3 of them. The first card is the Patchwork technique. The second card is a combination of the Pulled Glimmers and Up and Over techniques. You must believe me when I tell you...these would not look nearly as good on just any old paper. All paper is from The Paper Temptress and is of the very best quality around. There is no need to worry about the quality of the paper when it comes from The Paper Temptress, rest assured you will get the best paper that is out there!
Stay tuned !!!! In the next couple of days I will announce a giveaway of 20 pieces of Paper Temptress paper, hand chosen by me. I call it "A Few of My Favorite Things." You can also ALWAYS get a 15% discount on paper at PT by using the code jk15.
