Magnolia Dreams and Paper Temptress

Hi all.  Welcome to the blog hop.  If you are following the hop you should have arrived here from Ginny's blog.  Design team members from Paper Temptress and Graciellie Design will be showcasing some great cardstock from Paper Temptress and some gorgeous  digital images, paper and cut files from Graciellie Design. Graciellie Design is where the blog hop begins.

The base for my card is Cotton Candy Pop Tones.  I wanted a nice light base to show off the other beautiful colors.  The flower and the patterned cardstock(which is a digital paper design from Graciellie Design) are both done from Cryogen White.  To say the least the design printed out perfectly and the cardstock has a little shimmer to it.  I colored the flower with copic markers.  Finally the teal frame was cut from Teal Basis.  I felt like this dark cardstock really set off the nice flower.

Just loving the cardstock and designs being showcased so I decided to add another card.
It is very difficult to photograph silver cardstock.  That is exactly what the base of this card is.  It is called Silver Metallic Glossy

Another thing that the previous post did not show was the cut files from Graciellie Design.  I used a Cricut and cut the fancy piece in the middle from Teal Basis.  Middle oval is also  Teal Basis.
The flower was again printed on Cryogen White  and colored with distress ink and a little water on a brush.   Pink layer in the middle is Azalea Mica Metallic  and has a sheen to it.  Both ovals were cut from dies from Stampn' Up.

Sorry for the long post, but I just have the need to show as much of this cardstock and designs as possible.  Just one more. I did use one of the sentiments from Graciellie Design in this card.   Base for this card is Kraft Treasures.

The flowers are printed on Cryogen White and the spots are printed on White Pearl Linen.  Both worked perfectly but if you want a little sheen and a little texture the Linen is the answer.

The light blue in the layers is Aqua Basis.  The accent on the sentiment is Teal Basis

There is a special cardstock pack available from Paper Temptress that was put together just for this blog hop.  The colors  showcased in the hop are to die for.

The next stop on the hop is Holley.  Have fun!
