Eiffel Tower Amour Card

How would you like to have this Eiffel Tower Amour Card sitting on your desk? All the elements from the Parisian Beauty Suite in the January to June 2020 Mini Catalogue are beautiful compliments to each other! In this card, you can see Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP (Designer Series Paper) and die cuts using the Parisian Dies with the Big Shot.

We used Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (retired) on the back of the “swirl” before cutting with the Big Shot and the dies. By doing this, we eliminated the need for applying liquid glue to these thin, delicate pieces because the sheets have double-sided adhesive and cover the entire image!

Timeless Tulips Wishing You Happy Birthday

Timeless Tulips Wishing You Happy Birthday

When tulips start showing up through the dirt and/or the snow, we know that spring will soon be arriving!  And I was thinking of spring when I decided to make the birthday card using the Timeless Tulips stamp set.  These are Distinktive Stamps so, when used, the images look like they’re shaded – an easy way to get shaded flowers!   And photopolymer stamps make it easy to place the images exactly where you want them.
