Hello stampers! I am back from a wonderful visit with my parents. When I am with them I try to leave work behind. They are my number one priority especially at their age! Pap just turned 93 and Mom is 87. Sadly, Pap had shingles for his birthday so that did put a damper on the festivities. We are just so thankful to still have him with us and that they can still be happily married, together in their own home. Now is time for Parisian Blossoms to be continued!
Parisian Blossoms Cards
Have I told you yet how much I love this suite of products? The two stamp sets with their coordinating framelits work beautifully together, but they also stand well on their own. When I was given these products to create with I just let the creative juices flow and for the most part I ended up using them both on the same card. Let’s take a look at what I have made.
This card is a 5 1/2″ square card. I love how the stitched nested label dies go with this suite. Isn’t the Parisian Blossoms paper exquisite? In the background is the Parisian Flourish embossed vellum.
This frothy creation uses the Parisian Beauty stamp set, the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder, Forever Blossoms stamp set embossed with silver on vellum and the flourish framelit from the Parisian dies. Lots of love in this card perfect for any romantic occasion! Our champagne foil paper is the perfect pairing for this suite of products don’t you agree?
I especially created this card to fit into a regular business envelope. I also wanted a card that used all the flower dies from the Cherry Blossoms dies in a clean and simple way. These dies both cut and emboss at the same time for a stunning effect when you use champagne foil paper. The word “amour” and the branch are both cut from black foil paper. The scripty paper from the Parisian Blossoms specialty designer paper is the perfect backdrop for this card.
I thought I would end this post with a clean and simple card that is suitable for both genders. This card also shows how lovely it is to stamp on patterned paper. This is a 4 1/4″ square card. Be sure to get your shimmer black embossing powder now as it is NOT being carried over into the new year.
More Parisian Blossoms Tomorrow
Tomorrow I will be sharing some cards that I made with this suite using a special technique. What I liked most about these cards is their pop of colour! While the soft colours in this suite are exquisite, I wanted some bold drama with cherry cobbler! Stay tuned for more.
