May Flowers

Here's a fun image from Tiddly Inks on some stunning papers from Paper Temptress.  The base of this card is the Sorbet cardstock called Watermelon.  It's a heavy cardstock and a very bright pink color.  Just lovely and a wonderful base for cards.  It makes your work very professional looking and feeling.  The black cardstock is actually an amazing glossy cardstock with texture and pizazz.  It's called Retro Black Glossy Lustre.  It shimmers in the light and has a beautiful feel to it.  I used a punch on it to make a unique set of borders as well as a centerpiece.
The stamp image comes from artist Christy Croll from digi-stamp store Tiddly Inks.  She also has images sold through a rubber stamp store called Stamping Bella.  For this image, since it was a digi stamp, I printed it out on my computer, so I used 80lb Copic friendly paper.  The paper I chose for this project was Neenah Solar White.  I tend to use this brand when I am using my laser printer.  When stamping, I like to use the Heavenly white paper that is a little thicker, 100lb or even the 120lb.

Hope this adorable card made you smile today.  Go grab some paper and make yourself a beautiful card.

Cheers, Holley
