I had a fun day yesterday at my friend Ann Hillery’s home. She hosted a shoebox swap for demonstrators to share ideas. We each brought a finished card and kits for others to make the same card. We went from one table seat to another table seat working on the cards. Everything was die cut for us- we just stamp, color, assemble. It is always a great time, and the three soups made by Ann and Linda Briel along with salad and pumpkin bundlt cake and raspberry crumb bars for lunch were delicious! My friend Patti Sharkey had this Parisian Beauty for us to make:
I love all the patterns in the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper
but the script is especially striking in the champagne metallic against the Petal Pink background. Tip: Using a 3″ x 4″ piece of the luxurious paper not only makes a statement but also stretches your paper to get 12 pieces from a 12″ x 12″ piece.
The black Eiffel Tower really pops off the card. There is not a die for the flower so I did have to fussy cut the flowers but I did it with minimal whining…
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
