Eiffel Tower all lit up!

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a light up card! I love these! They are so much fun! Next year, I am planning on going to see the Eiffel Tower (thank God it’s not THIS year!). I saw this card where someone made a bridge with water under it, and the Tower is in the background. I am not sure that they used Stampin’ Up! stamps, so decided to make one using Parisian Beauty. Here is my card lit up:

Not only did I use the Parisian Beauty stamp set, but I used the punch Label Me Fancy! This is what I used to make the bridge. I tried so hard to make them evenly spaced, this is as close as I could get. Also, I used Wink of Stella to highlight the water to give it that bit of sparkle!! If you lay the Smoky Slate piece of cardstock onto a grid sheet or against a ruler, make marks at these spots: 5/8″, 2″ and 3 5/16, then put the punch into these spots and only go part way up (look at picture to see how far) making the marks in the middle of the punch. This way it will make your waterway!

In the light of sharing with you the lit up version, I HAD to show you the card (a little more professional pic) when it’s NOT lit up:

Of course, I used a lot of bling by using Champagne Rhinestones, because you are not always going to have it turned on! The tree came from the die Sweet Silhouettes. Sponging the So Saffron cardstock after it was die-cut with Soft Suede and Garden Green, really makes this ‘tree’ look like the sun is hitting it in spots! Make sure you leave some yellow to give it that sun kissed look!

Furthermore, I also sponged the Eiffel Tower with Soft Suede and then ran the Memento Black pad itself over parts of the sides. This was to make it look like it was antiqued. What do you think? Did I hit it, or is it a miss? For those of you who love light up cards, we are going to be making this card next week! Let me know if you want to attend!

Who doesn’t love a Palm Tree!?

Hey Guys,

First off, I want to thank you for sticking with me. I haven’t always been consistent with my blogging, but I HAVE been consistent with my classes. If you would like to do any of my classes let me know, I love to make cards and decorations and would love to have you join me!

Second, the card I am going to show you today is one that I somewhat cased (which means that I saw a card, loved it but changed it up just a little), this one was inspired by Michele Zindorf. She is very awesome but not everyone can do what she does, so I try to bring it down to what I would hope with some guidance anyone can do! Here is her card:

My card is one that fits in a regular envelope, that was my main objective……make this card, but have it fit into an envelope I have.

What I love about her card is that you really get to see the basket weave background, since I had to make mine smaller you get a hint of that!

Here is my card:

Not sure if I have told you this in the past, but my husband has a virtual tropical paradise in our yards, here in North Carolina! I grew up in SoCal, we and go to Disney World all the time and we both love how tropical it is. So, of course I naturally gravitate towards tropical stamps…..this one REALLY called to me! I hope you love how this came out as much as I do!

Here is the inside of this card:
