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!

Gang’s All Meer Double Slider Easel Card

Hey Guys,

I’m sure that you have seen around the Double Slider Easel Cards, I saw them too, and tried my hand at it! Using The Gang’s All Meer Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! was a no brainer for me. They are so stinkin’ cute! Plus, the sentiment says “Happy Birthday to a STAND-UP friend”, thought it would be perfect to have a stand up card! LOL

Also I used the SU! set Mountain Air, because I thought they would make a great backdrop for those adorable MeerKats! The Belly band is stamped with the cactus and colored with Blends. I tried so hard to find a fitting Designer Series Paper (DSP) that would fit with these cuties, but alas I couldn’t! So, what is a crafter to do? Make their own DSP! 🙂

Here is my card, you’ll see a few pics since I want to show you all the angles:

This can open fuller, the sentiment is on the pull out. Can you see that this is open on it’s own?

Cute right? I like it, depending on what everyone says at my classes is whether or not we make this in a class. It’s a little over the top, meaning it takes some time to get all the pieces together and put in the right place. BUT, it was super fun once I got the gist of it! Thanks go to Frenchie for her video! I may make a video if you would like to see it, just let me know!
