Paris Amour

I have this lotion lying around the house from Bath and Body works called Paris Amour. I borrowed a picture of it from the Internet.

Cool, right?  It has the Eiffel Tower, some flowers (I think they are tulips) and a bit of bokeh in the background.  That Eiffel Tower looks a lot like the one in the Stampin Up valentine set, Follow my Heart. I have that set, but I just couldn't use it.  I didn't like the Eiffel Tower with the heart in it.  So I turned to an oldie-but-goodie stamp set, Artistic Etchings.  That Eiffel Tower fit the bill nicely.  I used my Gorgeous Grunge set to put a little bokeh on the card as well.  I really love the way it turned out.  Finally an idea comes to paper correctly! - Heidi

Also uses Fifth Avenue Floral.  Rose Red and Baja Breeze cardstock.

October Afternoon

I have two retro-ish cards to share with you using products from October Afternoon.

I will post more info on them later - Heidi

World Card Making Day Thank You Blog Hop!

As a winner of Papercrafts magazine's World Card Making Day contest we are doing a Thank You blog hop. I am not sure how to do this and I worked third shift last night (YAWN), so bear with me.

The original Hop starts at Papercrafts Magazine just click HERE 

Hopefully you came here via Erin Lee Schreiner's blog.

Below is the card that I made for World Card Making Day

My "thank you card" is made with the stamp set and die combination I received from Lil Inker.  I am a tool junkie and I love a good stamp and die combo.  This card uses the Spot On set and the connected circles dies from Lil Inker.

Someone wrote in my comments that the above card was a nice CAS.  It may very well be and I apologize if it is.  I looked through my Lil Inker Pinterest board and found cards similar to the above card, but not the exact same thing.  Either way I would like to share two more cards that I made using products that I won in the World Card Making Day Contest.

I told you previously that I am a tool freak.  I love the
Sizzix Framelits Triple Circle Flip-its die.  
On the above card I used:
Spot On stamp set from Lil Inker (WCMD prize)
Daphne's Closet 6 X 6 paper pad from Lawn Fawn (WCMD prize).

For this card I also used the Sizzix Framelits Triple Circle Flip-its die.
The paper is Wonderful Day 6 X 6 paper pad from Fancy Pants (WCMD prize)
The stamps are from Tim Holtz and called Phrases 2.
Now onto Ilina Crouse's blog to see her beautiful cards.  Thank you for visiting and please come again!
Have a great day - Heidi

Golden Heart

I came across this image on Pintrest and thought it would make a nice card. 

Once I saw the Hardwood stamp from Stampin' Up I knew I could make the card perfectly.

The leaf stamp is Aspen from Rubber Stampede. - Heidi
