Paris in the Spring

parisan beautyDoesn’t this card just make you think of what Paris in the Spring must look like?  The stamp set featured here is the brand new Parisian Beauty stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Jan-June Mini Catalogue (you can view that Catalogue here).

Parisian beauty stamp set

This card was created by one of my very talented team members, Laurie Alexander, from Burlington, ON.  I love how she made a “window” and then had the die-cut leaves peek thru the window showing a view of the Eiffel Tower (see more about how it is made below).  I think this card would be perfect for someone who is about to go travelling.  Also, this card could be a romantic way to say “Happy Anniversary” or “Happy Valentines” day because life and marriage really is an adventure!   Paris in the Spring card with the Eiffel Tower

The stamp set, Parisian Beauty and the matching dies, Parisian dies, can be purchased as a bundle from Stampin’ Up! and is called, of course, the Parisian Beauty Bundle.  The bundle amount is $59.25, which is almost at the $60 amount that gets you a free item during Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration promotion.

The Sale-a-bration promotion runs from January-March 31st, 2020 and gets you a free item (ranging from stamp sets to embellishments) with every $60 increment ordered.  Check out the brochure with all the Sale-a-bration options in it here.

If the Parisian Beauty Bundle interests you, I would suggest adding in the stunning Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper to bring you up to the $60 mark.  The Designer Series Paper has shiny champagne foil accents on it and soft colours and it pairs well with the whole romantic theme of “Paris in the spring”.

The background piece of Petal Pink cardstock has been die cut with the Stitched Nested dies (see all the supplies listed below).  And then the images from the Parisian Beauty stamp set have been stamped around the edges of the card using Smoky Slate ink.  The Eiffel Tower is stamped and then there is a soft blue watercolour wash around the tower.

The colours on this card are soft and pretty and suit the romantic them of the card.  The watercolouring and the soft colours also give almost a vintage vibe to the card.

Colour combo 200106The word “adventure” is die-cut and the other words are stamped and embossed on cardstock and then cut out.  Before attaching the top layer, Laurie wrapped some simple white twine around the frame.  The frame is popped up with dimensionals.  A tip for attaching the words, is to be sure to only place adhesive where the words will touch the frame.  The last step was to add a few clear rhinestones to the front of the card (because isn’t bling romantic?).
