Printing Digital Paper on Paper Temptress paper

Editors Note: I have this posted on Paper Temptress Lovers Group but I wanted to share with my readers too

I have heard a couple times that they wish Patrica carried designer papers. I have found a way to combine our love for designer papers and Paper Temptress papers. Warning reading this may result in a bigger addiction to PT paper. LOL!
Here is a card I did with the digital paper from My Grafico. I was surprised to learn that the sparkle on the sparkle cardstock shone through the images. The images are bright and crisp. When I printed on the paper, I set my printer for presentation paper and set my printer to advanced to print photos. I found this made much cleaner images. I have printed on Heavenly White Ultrasmooth and Vellum Bristol. Unfortunately, I couldn't capture a photo that showed the difference between Heavenly & Vellum. The Heavenly produced a much crisper brighter paper than the Vellum. I set my printer to the same settings as I did for Sparkle Cardstock. Now, Some may be asking about the price of printing your own. Melanie pointed out that you actually save money and space. I know I have buoghten paper packs and have paper sitting around that I don't like or can't figure out a way to use it. Also, if you are trying to make a set of cards, you will not run out of your designer paper.

My Grafico has some wonderful paper packs for sale at reasonable prices.
My Shabby Princess has some wonderful digital paper sets for free.
I hope next week to share what I have learned about which paper to use for digital images. I would love to see what you do with making your own Designer Paper on Paper Temptress paper.
