Eiffel Tower in the Sunshine

Hey Stampers,

I am still on a Happy High from last night's Stamp Club. Me and my ladies had an AWESOME time making some fun projects and just having a blast in general. I used a bunch of retiring products last night, and I will continue to show you guys as many projects as possible using these going away products for the rest of the month ! There is not much time left now for some of these awesome items - so make sure you get in your order before its too late !!

The fun card I am sharing today was made out of a bunch of stuff that was sitting on my desk. I was playing with the awesome Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP, Wishes your Way stamp set and Brights Brads when I made this card, and before I put them away I wanted to play with them again ! I had seen an AMAZING card by Julie Ramos over on her blog using the Artistic Etchings stamp set, and I loved her design so much I wanted to make one of my own !! She used some new colors, stamps and DSP for hers but I wanted to keep enjoying my retiring stuff for a while longer ! I love this fun way to use the Apothecary Accents and Ovals Collection Framelits. What do you think !?!


Isn't that SO awesome !?! I love, love, LOVE that fun frame !! Heres how I created it. I die cut the label shape from the Apothecary Accents framelits with the striped DSP, Then I cut out the centre with one of the Ovals Collection framelits. I then cut a larger Oval out of Whisper White to layer underneath it. I stamped the beautiful Eiffel Tower stamp with Basic Gray ink, and layered the frame over it with Dimensionals. I added some punched Melon Mambo flowers I created using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack to the stamped piece and the frame with some Brights Brads in Daffodil Delight. For my sentiment piece, I stamped the polka dotted frame image from the Four Frames set in Melon Mambo and put the happy birthday from Wishes Your Way inside it with Lucky Limeade ink. I punched this out with the matching Decorative Label Punch. A couple more of those sweet flowers (this time in Daffodil Delight with Old Olive brads) really make this sentiment pop !! Love it !!

My main layer is a piece of Daffodil Delight that I embossed with the Stripes embossing folder. I added some of the fun 3/8" Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon to it, and then added everything to a Basic Gray card base. These bright colors and fun designs are sure to make anyones birthday a happy one !!

Thanks for coming by today. I am going to squeeze in as many posts as I can between now and when stuff retires on June 3rd, but they wont all be retiring products !! I have some more Sneak Peeks in store for you from the new Annual Catalogue as well !! So make sure you come back soon. Have a great day and Happy Stamping !!
