Paris Bonjour

Bonjour! Have you seen the new Parisian themed stamps from Stampendous? The team and I will be featuring them all week, so I hope you'll check in frequently. Today, my card features the Paris Bonjour stamp set (and it's accompanying free stencil!). The full instructions are below.

Supplies:
Stampendous:
CRS5105: Paris Bonjour
DCS5105: Paris Bonjour Die Cuts
SSC1282: Big Words Happy
MPW811: Mixed Media Paper
FREG050: Ice Pink Embossing Enamel
DWNHB-12: 1/2" Stencil Brush

Other:
Imagine: Delicata Ink in Rose Gold, VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne, VersaMark Ink
My Colors Cardstock: Grasshopper
Scrapbook Adhesives: E-Z Runner


Directions:
1. On a piece of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Mixed Media Paper, stencil the fleur de lis stencil with Rose Gold Delicata ink and a stencil brush. Use a circular motion to apply the ink.

2. Cut an angled piece off of the bottom of the stenciled paper. Save the removed piece for another card.

3. Create the card base out of Grasshopper cardstock, cut to the size of 4 1/4" x 11."

4. On another piece of Mixed Media Paper, stamp the Eiffel Tower with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink.

5. Die cut the Eiffel Tower with the coordinating die.

6. Place the stenciled layer and the Eiffel Tower on to the card base to determine where your sentiment will go. A stamp positioner is helpful for this, but not required.

7. Stamp the sentiment (from the Big Words Happy set) with VersaMark ink.

8. Sprinkle Ice Pink embossing powder on to the sentiment and heat set.

9. Adhere the stenciled layer and the Eiffel Tower to the card base.

This was a pretty quick card to pull together. I wish you could see the stunning shine from the Rose Gold Delicata ink and the Ice Pink Embossing Enamel in real life. Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more lovely Parisian projects. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Love the fleur de lies with
the Eiffel Tower. I live
across the river from St. Louis,
MO, and it's origins are French
so the fleur de lies is one of
their symbols. Great card.
thanks for sharing

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
