Fold it, bake it, do something with it... paper that is.
Basically we want you do do something fancy with paper - special folds, fancy designs, different paper media - just do something fun with paper :)

Since the weather has been blistering hot here for the past week, I decided a winter card was in order. I decided to get a jump on my Christmas cards.
For the background, I used alcohol inks from Ranger (Stream, Lettuce, Silver mixative) on this beautiful glossy cardstock from Paper Temptress. I put a few drops of each color on a felt pad and sponged it around the glossy cardstock. I then took some colorless blender (Copic), added it to the felt and sponged it around to blend the colors. I really love the effect - there's a great video tutorial from Tim Holtz tutorial HERE. Then stamped a few poinsettias from Peaceful Poinsettia in versamark and gold embossed on top of the inked paper. The sentiment is a dimensional sticker from Anna Griffin. The beautiful gold, shiny ribbon is also from Paper Temptress.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please take some time to view the blogs of the other PIO gals and see there gorgeous creations - their links are in my side bar.
