Istanbul

Here's a sweet and simple card using some gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress.  I am so excited that Paper Temptress will be handing out a prize this month.  The stamp I am using here was a gift from my husband this Christmas.  It's the Istanbul skyline on top of a heart filled with birds.

The bottom sheet of back is called Black Basis.  The wonderful mica metallic that is layered under the lace as well as under the stamped image is Silver Ore Glimmer .  The image is stamped in Black Memento ink onto Heavenly White paper and layered on some Black Ruche paper.
Paper Temptress is offering a wonderful set of paper as a prize this month!


Question of the day:  Which of Paper Temptress Paper variety packs is your favorite?  click here

I think my fav is the Valentine package, esp because I love the reds and pink papers right now; But the Jackie K's designer package is a close 2nd.

What a pretty card! The papers are amazing! In keeping with my fondness for holiday cards, and if I HAVE to choose 🤔, I’d pick the Patriotic or Spring packs.

Yay for thoughtful husbands who know what we like!! This is such an elegant card. I am loving the Christmas and the Valentine paper packs on the website because I love making cards for the holidays

I love that black and white color combo Holley! The lace and monochromatic design lets that stamp stand out in the best way! As for my favorite paper pack at Paper Temptress, I think it's the Valentine pack as well. Red is one of my favorite colors to craft with and I have a shortage of nice pink cardstocks...so this calls to me!
