Off to Paris with Stampendous!

Re-edited: Yaaay! My card is in the top picks of the Stamp Man Summer Colours challenge - woo hoo!!!


This glorious long awaited day has finally arrived - my first Stampendous BlogStar post! Yaaay!

Today I am taking you on a Stampendoulicious journey to Paris. I've been to Paris a few summers ago and I immediately fell in love with it. 



Nothing compares to the beauty and romance of this glorious city in Spring and I've always felt it was really difficult to "capture" it on paper. But friends, fear no more! With this gorgeous stamp and fantastic Fran-tage technique (that's got to be my fave crafty trick ever!) you can create a truly magical item.





To complete this card you will need:

US peeps:

UK peeps:



NB. This is me in the Musée du Louvre :)).




If you'd like to see the detailed directions you just need to hop over to the Stampendous blog and it will all be there! :). And if you need more inspiration - you will find 'bucket loads' on the Stampendous projects page :)).


I really love the way this card turned out, even if I say so myself lol. But that's mostly down to this gorgeous Parisienne stamp - Oh la la!!!




I hope you’ve enjoyed this little journey - I look forward to seeing you on top of the Eiffel Tower! And if you need a refreshing break from your travels, join in with this month's Citrus challenge at Stampendous! Think lemons, limes and oranges - sure to get your creative juices flowing - quite literally! :)

Such a pretty card!! Oh la la... Thanks for sharing with us at Frosted Designs!

Ellie said...

Beautiful colors you've used here!

I also LOE that stamp. It's just a pity that Stampendous doesn't do much for international stampers using their stamps, it doesn't really make me wanting their stamps.

Asia King (aka Joanna K) said...

Thanks Ellie. Yes, it's unfortunate that the monthly challenge prize is not open to international entries but sadly it's the 'bad guys' at customs who make it really difficult to receive the winning prizes from the US :((. x

BrendaB said...
