Hello and welcome!  
Marie here with a card to share with you today at Paper Temptress!    I am using one of the new releases by Sherri Baldy and some super  gorgeous paper from Paper Temptress.     I hope you like this!
pt061515b

I printed this super cute  digi image - Big Eye, Big Head Besties img613 on my new favorite paper - X-Press It.   This paper loves alcohol ink markers.  The markers just guide on super smooth and it makes blending a breeze!     If you haven't tried it - you are in for a big treat.  Check it out!  I used pink and blue colored pencils to add a little interest to my background.   Hum -   Colored pencils work great too on  X-Press It!    :D

My image was colored used Copic Sketch Markers.
Skin Tones:  E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Clothing:  BV 0000, BV000, BV000, BV01, BV04, BV14
Hearts:   R20, R22, R24

Mushrooms:  E40, E42, E44, E46
Grass: G40, G43, G46, Colorless Blender

pt061515c

The flowers were cut using Neenah Solar White paper.
It is smooth and I used the lighter weight - The 65# paper is perfect for molding  the flowers.
The flowers were cut from "Small Gardenia Die" from Cheery Lynn Designs die and
sponged the with Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber Distress Ink.

I used Spearmint by Pop Tones  for the leaves.
They  were stamped with the Open Leaves stamp set  and cut with Classic Leaf Die from Heartfelt Creations.
I sponged the edges with Bundled Sage and Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I gave the flowers and leaves a quick spray of Glitter Dust.   (This is in an aerosol can.)

I used Sherri Baldy's My Besties Vintage Violet for my designer paper.

The mat layer is a gorgeous deep blue violet   color from BASIS 80# called "Purple".   

The card base was created from my all time favorite - Heavenly White 120#. 
It is firm and hold up perfectly for a card base :)

TIP
I just adore this paper - BoBunny Zip-A-Dee-Doodle Collection.
I wanted to make sure I showcased the gorgeous paper to I cut a flower from the paper using my designer layer.    I did this in an area that would not show when I applied my focal image.
I then shaped the flower with my moving tools and mat.
Faber Castell Gel Medium was applied to help keep the shape.
The great thing is...   It was a great embellishment and I didn't have to use another piece of paper!

Spring, Blossoms and Butterflies

pt050415a

Hi everyone, and welcome!

It's Marie here with another designer card for you.

pt050415b

I wanted to share a card I created using paper from our very own Paper Temptress and some flower die from Cherry Lynn Dies.
  1. My card base is Heavenly White 110# cardstock.  I love the weight of this for my card base and it is super smooth and feels wonderful to touch.
  2. The base layer is a beautiful pink called Cotton Candy.
  3. The Top layer is Neenah Solar White.   I used the light 65# so I was able to get a deep impression with my embossing folder.    The edges were sponged using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  4. The flowers and butterfly were cut from Neenah Solar White paper.   The flowers were sponged with Tim Holtz Milled Lavender  and Spun Sugar Distress Ink.
  5. Pearls were used for embellishment.
I hope you enjoyed this card.  Treat ourself and stop by Paper Temptress and check out all the wonderful paper, ribbon/bows and flowers!   !

Have a wonderful, crafty week!
