Parisian Beauty Birthday Card

Parisian Beauty Birthday Card

I love the look of my Parisian Beauty Birthday Card.  I had such a fun time putting all the parts together to form a beautiful but elegant card.

Repetition stamping can sometimes be quite tricky.  However, the Parisian Beauty sentiment easily lines up; don’t be afraid to try it.  Did you notice the beautiful embossed background?  I used the Country Floral 3D embossing folder.  One of my very favorites!

I find it helps to repeat a color three times on my cards.  In particular, the gold-edged ribbon, the gold on the Golden Honey DSP, and the gold embossed Eiffel tower.  Consequently, the color repetition helps your eye travel across the card and adds continuity to the design.

Did you notice the fleur-de-lis stamped in Blushing Bride?  It adds just that touch of color to tie everything together.  I love my simple, elegant card.  Hopefully, you are inspired to stamp your own Parisian Beauty Birthday card.

Parisian Beauty Amour Card

Parisian Beauty Amour Card

I’ve always wanted to travel to Paris. Visit the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, walk down the Champs-Elysées, and as might be expected, eat french pastries. Well, a girl can dream. However, my Parisian Beauty Amour card does put me in mind of all things french.

Parisian Beauty Amour Card

Simple little touches, like the die-cut “Amour,” the Parisian Flourish embossed background, and lots of Clear Wink of Stella on the Eiffel Tower combine to make this beautiful card.

You can add visual interest on the inside of your card by tapping off the ink before stamping your cardstock. This technique not only makes your card interesting, but it also adds a subtle reminder of your main focal image.  Why not make your own Parisian Beauty Amour card?

Beautiful Friendship — Birthday Card

Birthday Card using Beautiful Friendship stamp set from Stampin' Up! by Kathleen Wingerson

I absolutely love the new Beautiful Friendship stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and combining it with the Country Floral 3D embossing folder makes a perfect birthday card.

I have always loved hydrangeas.  My grandmother always had the most beautiful purple/blue hydrangeas in front of her home in Southern California. Every time I look at a plant, a photograph, or a stamped image I think of her and her beautiful garden.  I hope my card with the embossed and stamped flowers will bring back a lovely memory for you too.

Unfortunately, the Clear Wink of Stella does not show up in the photo. But, believe me, it is there and very sparkly.

Daisy Lane — Friendship Card

Daisy Lane Friendship Card

I am so pleased that Stampin’ Up! decided to add the Daisy Lane stamp set with the smaller daisy and the beautiful fern.  They made it so simple to create this beautiful Daisy Lane Friendship Card.  It is also wonderful to have both the large and medium daisy punches. 

You can find the bundle on page 23 of the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! annual catalog.  If you would like to purchase the products used to create this card or anything else you might want or “need” click HERE or on the links below this post.

Daisy Lane Friendship Card

I have always loved having a fern stamp and think this one is particularly beautiful and it fills the background with just the right touch to showcase the daisies.

Daisy Lane Friendship Card

I thought the “white space” was just a bit much.  So, I toned it down with the spatter stamp from the Waterfront stamp set. I wanted a very light touch to the “splatter,” so the stamp was tapped off twice before stamping.  Love the results!  The Clear Faceted Gems filled the centers of the daisies adding that all-important touch of glam and of course, the petals are colored with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

 

Cutting Instructions:

  • Mossy Meadow cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″ (card base)
  • Merry Merlot cardstock 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Whisper White cardstock 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Whisper White cardstock 3″ x 11″ (stamp and punch 3 large daisies and 4 medium daisies)
  • Whisper White cardstock 3-3/4″ x 5″ (inside of card)
