Paris Flair

I have a little Paris Flair to share with you tonight. This card was inspired by little girls' new Paris themed bedroom. She's my little 7 year old Diva and loves all things Paris, but especially the Eiffel Tower. She been sick with the stomach flu the past few days and she actually asks me to make her get well cards, so this one is for her. This project measures 5" x 7" and it's my plan to get a nice frame for it and add it as a decoration in her newly decorated room as it uses all the same colours as her room.

I used the Eiffel Tower photostamp and the word, 'Paris' both from the Paris plate by The Stampsmith. I love this plate, as I'm sure you can tell as I use it quite a bit. It's no wonder my daughter likes the theme, too! lol

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Marilyn, Pretty in Pink

I have a Marilyn creation to share with you tonight of her in her gorgeous dress. I absolutely love this image! The Stampsmith has so many great famous faces stamps and I always have so much fun playing with them.

More Birthday Cards

Hi Smithies!
I have a few more Birthday cards to share with you today. The first two use the Paris Eiffel Dress individual stamp. I used lots of bright colors so you may need your shades. For the first card, I stamped on green velum.
I stamped on a light yellow paper for this card.
The last card uses an image from the Paris Full Sheet stamped in black on glossy white CS. I tied tulle around the main image and the sentiment.

On my blog, I have a few close ups and more details if you would like more info. Have a great day!

A Few More RAK's

Hi Smithies!

I have a few more RAK's today. I have been making lots of these to send out to those on the Birthday list. I was getting low on glossy white cardstock and thought it would be fun to try the photo stamps on other types of papers. On the first card, I stamped on a glossy finish marbled paper. I think it is an interesting effect. The stamped used is from the Paris Full Sheet.

On the second card, the image was stamped on a white CS with a rough surface. This image is from the Those Were The Days Full Sheet.

Thanks for looking! Try out some of your papers and see what kind of results you get. It's fun!! Have a great day. Take a stroll over to my blog for more info.
