This is Monica here with my first post for THE PAPER TEMPTRESS. I'm so excited to be working with these fabulous papers! I'm not a normal cardmaker but thought I would give it a try. I'm starting to fall in love with dies, well when I can get them to work. Here is a close up of the card. Products used Basis cardstock, Vellum, Silver Lustre Collection (my favorite). I took this picture in direct sunlight so you could see the awesome shimmer of the Silver Lustre Collection. I'm including a little mini tut. I hope you like it and that it makes sense. I used my brand NEW Memory Box Dies, and Marianne Designs Creations. Check out Paper Temptress for your cardstock and ribbon needs.
Here are the papers I used:
and now a close up of the Vellum that has a special sheen to it.
This next shot is using a technique where you ink the top of the embossing folder and then running my paper thru it. Anna Griffin Embossing Folder Foliard was a joy to work with.
Getting the die cuts assembled and prepped for the final step.

I loved these new dies that I found at my local scrapbook store.. R U Stampin and Scrapping! Thank you Joyce.
I also used a new Platform System called The Genius. This is thanks to Joyce as well. I only have the Cuttlebug and had bought some new spellbinders and I could not get them to cut for anything!! Well she explained to me how The Genius only has 3 plates.. The base plate is MAGNETIC.. no more sliding around. The top plates are self healing and made of some material that doesn't let it warp. So I only needed two plates to get my stuff to work! How amazing is that!!! I will probably be getting the Big Shot this year. I need something a bit more reliable. I used The Genius with my new dies and they just came out perfectly.
I also have to give a shout out to TRESORS DE LUXE!! I got my flowers today and I just love them. I highly recommend her store for the most fabulous laces and flowers!!
