HIMCR #133 - and here's another . . .

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!

As I mentioned yesterday, The Paper Temptress is our sponsor this week over at Hiding In My Craft Room.  And Patricia so generously let each of us pick out 6 different types of paper along with some Cyrogen White paper.  Cyrogen White paper is GREAT to use with stamping and Copics.  I was able to get six (6) different cards . . . well, it was actually seven (7) since I did a 7th for a blog hop yesterday with some of the scraps I had leftover.  So I am going to be posting them throughout the week when I don't have another blog post scheduled.

If you haven't seen the cards from yesterday, click HERE to see the one I did for HIMCR and click HERE to see the one I did for Get Inky! blog hop with some of the scraps I had leftover from the paper I received from The Paper Temptress.

For the following card, I used the Cryogen White paper to stamp my hearts and the Onyx Mica/Metallic paper for the rest.  I just love the mica/metallic paper . . . it gives a card the glittery look without the glitter.  It would be GREAT to use for an Operation Write Home card. :)  Here's how my card turned out:

I did a card similar to this a few years ago using pink and black paper, along with ribbon . . . plus, I colored my hearts with my Copics.  (If I can find a picture of it, I will post it.)  But after doing it in just black and white, I have decided I like the simplicity of the black and white. What do you think?

Remember, to check in each day this week to see the rest of the cards I was able to make with the wonderful paper.  Also, you still have six (6) days to get your project(s) in over at HIMCR to be eligible for a $25 gift certificate to The Paper Temptress . . . what an AMAZING prize!!! (I wish I could be eligible. )

Till the next time I'm up in the night.  Kathy

NOTE:  When I make my cards, I make the card fronts first, then add a card base when I am ready to give it to someone.  Not only does this help save on space, but it allows me to use a less expensive plain cardstock for the card base(s). Plus, it allows me to save my special papers for even more cards. :)

Super cute card, love the hearts and the sketch. Great idea to just make the fronts to save space.
