December Flurries

Oh how I'm beyond excited to be back on the Paper Temptress Design Team. Ever since I received my first order of Patricia's paper heaven goodness, I've been hooked!!! With all that sparkle, texture and color, how could I not be!!!???!!!

Hello everyone, I'm here today with my first project as a returning Design Team member for Paper Temptress. With the holiday season starting, there are cards to be made and today I created a card using a few of my absolute FAVORITE papers from Paper Temptress. For the card base, I've used this fantastic Violet Mica Metallic paper. The weight on this stuff is perfect for all the layering I do. It'll hold up for certain!!! I also used Canvas Silver Lustre Text weight and the stunning Vintage Silver Lustre. See the Aqua colored paper? That is the Silver Lustre painted with Faber Castell Gelatos. This is my first time using the Gelatos and I'm already hooked!!!

I embossed the Vintage Silver Lustre paper then applied Distress ink in Broken China, Dusty Concord and Chipped Sapphire, finishing it off with a sprinkle of Antiquities Frosted Crystal embossing powder. I also colored the 25(cut out of some Pink Paislee Daily Junque goodness) with a Faber Castell Blue Metallic Pitt Artist pen. You can really see the sparkle that these wonderful papers have in the next photos.

I used a bunch of my favorite adhesive on the card. First some Premium Craft Glue for the paper to paper, some 450 Quick dry for the Velvet ricrac and a dollop of Liquid Scrap Dots for that very pretty FabScraps star.

Holy Doodles, does that Violet Mica Metallic have a wonderful gold glitter to it. Can you see to pretty texture the Vintage Silver Lustre has? And that amazing color the Gelatos create?

Now you can for sure hehe. It is so wonderful to be back on Patricia's team and I hope that you are all going to love the projects that I share. Make sure you leave me a comment today, for I'd love to hear from you.
Until next time
