Paris Flair

I have a little Paris Flair to share with you tonight. This card was inspired by little girls' new Paris themed bedroom. She's my little 7 year old Diva and loves all things Paris, but especially the Eiffel Tower. She been sick with the stomach flu the past few days and she actually asks me to make her get well cards, so this one is for her. This project measures 5" x 7" and it's my plan to get a nice frame for it and add it as a decoration in her newly decorated room as it uses all the same colours as her room.

I used the Eiffel Tower photostamp and the word, 'Paris' both from the Paris plate by The Stampsmith. I love this plate, as I'm sure you can tell as I use it quite a bit. It's no wonder my daughter likes the theme, too! lol

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

TSC14: Starring Role

I'm back...sorry for being a little MIA lately. Sometimes life just gets in the way of the fun things we'd rather be doing.

I have a Marilyn card to share with you tonight. I love this image and decided to use it for the current challenge over at The Stampsmith Challenge blog. I'm rather late with my design team submission, but I figured better late than never! :)

Our challenge this time around is Starring Role - The Stampsmith is known for it's images of actresses and famous films. We want to see your Starring Role Artwork. I hope you decide to play along in the fun. I look forward to seeing all your creations!

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

TSC13: Mother's Day

It's challenge time again over at The Stampsmith Challenge blog and this time around is my turn to come up with a challenge theme. So, with Mother's Day coming up, let's celebrate our Mom's in paying our tributes, expressing our love and thanking them for all they do. Get out your stamps of beautiful women, children or simply a beautiful floral card as a gesture of love.

For my sample project, I decided to create a Matchbox Easel Jewelry Box. This is a view of it from the front. I used Butterfly Kiss as my main focal image. This is a precious stamp from The Stampsmith. I thought it seemed appropriate for this project since I call my girls my little angels. This is the larger size of two sizes available for this stamp.

I don't think you can see in the photo above, but I also added little antique finish decorative feet to the bottom to lift it up and give it a more decorative look. Here's a clip of the little feet I used.
Here's another view from the top, with the easel card folded down and the drawers pulled open.

I created a tutorial for this chipboard matchbox jewelry box a few years ago. You can find it here in case you'd like to make one for yourself. They're great for gifts and you can put most anything in the little drawers.

I hope you decide to come over and join us for the current challenge. Remember, since this is the first challenge of the month it's open to any stamp company, so get creating and submit your card or project to us for a chance to win some new rubber from The Stampsmith! I look forward to seeing what you all come up with!

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
