Paris Calling

My oh my, the new rubber keeps calling me!  Here's another new stamp set, coming January3rd (that's only a few days away!), but one I couldn't wait to get inky:

Sigh...so lovely!

The Parisian Beauty stamps are ooh la la!  Stamps that evoke love and the city for which it is named. And buying it as a bundle, you also get some fabulous dies to make your crafting easy.  Let's see what is here:

I started by stamping the Eiffel Tower with Smoky Slate ink, then cutting it with the Parisian dies.  I cut out the "merci" (I need a thank you card) using Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  And see those lovely flourishes?  Also a die in the set, cut with Pool Party paper.

And that frame...LOVE!  That's the Heirloom dies and embossing folders that create gorgeous rectangle or oval frames that are embossed.

I used some of the new Tropical Oasis designer series paper for the background.  I adhered the oval frame using Dimensionals, and wove some Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon through and over the frame, tying it in a luscious little bow.  Then the elements (Eiffel Tower, greeting and flourishes) were adhered.

I love how this came out - feminine, pretty, and sophisticated!

The Parisian Blossoms Suite, which includes the Parisian Beauty Bundle (seen here) AND the Forever Blossoms Bundle will be available on January 3rd.  Don't have a catalog?  Contact me to find out how you can get one for FREE.

And before I go, I want to wish all my family, friends and blog followers a very Happy, Healthy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year!  Thanks for your support!

It's All About the Shoes!

I have a niece who works as an influencer for a fashion company.  I have no idea what that means 😆 but I do know that she loves the fashion world.  So with her birthday coming soon, I decided to pull out my new Dressed To Impress stamps.

How fun is this card?

And look at all the new products here:

1.  Dressed to Impress stamps - the shoes and the flower were stamped with Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Stampin' Blends
2.  The sentiment is also from the stamp set, and was stamped in Shaded Spruce ink
3.  The shoes, flower and sentiment were all cut with the All Dressed Up dies
4.  The designer paper is part of the Best Dressed 6" x 6" paper pack

See that border?  Cut with the Painted Labels dies.


My shoes were "polished" with Wink of Stella; don't they have that "no place like home" feel?

The Whisper White square was cut with the Stitched Shapes dies and then embossed with the Tufted embossing folder.

And it's all finished off with a touch of bling - some Mint Macaron ribbon and a few Frosted Epoxy Droplets.

I think I'll have to send her a purse card too...that'll be my next Stampin' adventure!

All of these products will be available when the new January-June Mini Catalog goes live on January 3rd.  Need a catalog?  Contact me to find out how you can get one for FREE!

One More Poppy Moments Cards

Can you stand another card featuring the poppies?  I'm in love and am having trouble stopping...

So here is one more card with more of the pigment sprinkled-flowers that I showed you here:

I have a lot of family birthdays to celebrate in January, so I made another birthday card.  This white-on-white card with a bright splash of color will certainly brighten someone's day!

I started with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the greeting on a smaller piece of Whisper White and then ran it through an embossing machine with the new Stone Embossing Folder.  This is a FREE folder coming in January for Sale-A-Bration, and you won't want to miss it!

The flowers were cut from Watercolor paper that was spritzed with water and splashed with Pigment Sprinkles in Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green.  I cut them out with the Painted Labels dies, adding some Lovely Lipstick and Shaded Spruce cardstock.

The layout is very simple and can easily be duplicated with any flower die.

For the inside - I had another flower - and I just stamped the leaves and colored them with a Blender Pen and Shaded Spruce ink:

The Peaceful Poppies suite of products is coming January 3rd.  Need a new January-June Mini Catalog?  Contact me to see how you can get a copy FREE.
