Finger Painting with Pearl Paint

Good morning,


Today I wanted to share another card I created with the Pemberley papers, stamps and our pearl paint. I first stamped the flower in black staz-on ink, and then colored it in using the water brush. Once the image was completely dry, I dabbed on pearl paint using nothing more than my fingers. It was fun, fast and easy.


Let me know if you have any questions. With a smile~ Tina

Pemberley Card #3

Good Morning~

Today I wanted to share this very creative card made by my sweet friend Wendy Coffman. She is a talented lady and we swap card ideas almost every month. If you look at this card, it almost appears that the sentiment is stamped on vellum and adhered to the front of the card. In reality, it is stamped on a tag, cut from Colonial White cardstock and then stamped in second generation to give the illusion of vellum. I don't know if Wendy planned it that way intentionally, but I think the effect is cool!

Be inspired! Tina

Family layout featuring the Pemberley kit

Good Morning everyone... just a quick post today before heading to my son's elementary school. More Pemberley artwork. I also used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge by CTMH! I never knew what I was missing out on before getting my Cricut! Have a great day everyone~ Tina

Scrapbooking with the Pemberley kit~

Good Morning~


As you all know, I teach both scrapbooking and card making classes, so to be fair to both sets of crafters I decided to share a layout I created with the New Pemberley papers and Stickease. This particular layout is great for those memories that have a lot of photos. This is from the IMAGINE "How-To" program and holds 12 photos! Perfect for this mom of four.  The colors I used are:

  • Outdoor Denim
  • Indian Corn Blue
  • Creme Brulee
  • Taffy (accented mainly in the Stickease) and
  • Vanilla cream.

I also used the new "Garden Wood Shapes" color ready accents. These are so cool! I added a little liquid glass to the back and stuck it right down. I then popped up a few of the Stickease for added dimension using foam tape. I applied a little foam tape, then dipped the back of the Stickease in baby powder to remove the stickiness from everywhere else, and then used it on the layout. It's a great trick for making a sticker unsticky!
I hope you enjoy it! With a smile, Tina

As promised... some new card samples featuring the 'Pemberley' papers...

Good afternoon everyone,


Boy did I have fun creating in my craft room yesterday. I have a bunch of card ideas to share with you over the next week or so featuring the brand new 'Pemberley' papers and stamps from the Spring/Summer CTMH Idea book. This first sample is one of the ideas my "Ladies Night Out" card club gals will be creating on February 15th. I  love it because it is so simple to create. 


In making this card, I used the butterfly Flutter Paper Shapes and the NEW Bitty Pearls. I simple sponged the butterfly first in Indian Corn Blue ink and then in Outdoor Denim.
 Enjoy! Tina 

Pemberley Card #2

Good Morning,


Here is another card I created for my "Ladies Night Out" card club featuring the Pemberley papers.  The colonial white cardstock was cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and the flower was colored with the blending pen and pearl paint. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
