Copic Creations Challenge with Paper Temptress

>> Friday, April 15, 2011

Well, today is another challenge from Copic Creations!
In this bi-weekly challenge, we are sponsored by Paper Temptress! Now I must admit, I had not used their paper line before, though i've been tempted to buy many times. Um... they have some GREAT paper! First i'll show you my card, made entirely by Paper Temptress paper!

I feel like my card is a little lack luster. I just dont think I had enough energy for this one today, but the paper was definitely fun to work with. For my white base, I used the heavenly white. I felt like this was the closest to the XPress It cardstock that I normally use for cards. It's a bit thinner than the PTI, Neenah, etc. If you like the thicker stuff, Paper Temptress also carries a line called Cryogen and it might be right up your alley!
I also used Blue Ice Sorbet text weight (which means on the thinner side, would run great thru a printer, hence the text weight! But is still thicker than standard printer paper), Cappuchino Mico (OMG, the picture does not do it justice! shimmery and beautiful! also a text weight), Purple Basis (which is stronger, sort of like Stampin Up in weight) and then last but not least... Canyon Brown Skinny Coloums and i am totally in love with that one! SUPER thick, like thicker than pti thick! GREAT for card cases or templates!
I got other fun cardstocks to play with as well, so I'll fill ya in as I use them!

A few more details on my card... Yes that is a Paper Makeup Stamp and in case you missed my post A WEEK AGO (it's shameful, i know!) PMS is having a huge inventory reduction sale.
It's not a liquidation and it's not a retirement sale. These are just stamps that for some reason or another (some due to being on multiple plates, others due to being on a plate with another popular design, etc) there is overstock. A certain number of stamps is put on sale just to help even the levels of inventory. When a stamps qty put on sale is reached, it will return to regular price. BUT, this sale is good thru April! So check it out now while you can!!!!

And be sure to check out the Copic Creations team challenge blog! You need to read more about our sponsor and the fabulous prize you can win as well as check out samples from the rest of the design team!

Great card, Love it! Just to let you know the Heavenly White comes in 4 different weights, the 80# which you used, 100#, 120# and 180# which is a chipboard weight that is perfect for designing your own Book and journal covers! I also love the Canyon Brown Skinny Columns, adding an amazing Deep Purple to the Skinny Columns paperline! Glad you enjoyed using PaperTemptress's Cardstock! Loved seeing what you did with PT's cardstock.
