Bon Jour & From Paris with Love...

Hi everyone! I have 2 cards to share with you today using some new goodies from Stampers Dream! And let me tell ya, after making these two cards, I have the sudden urge to take a trip to Paris!! hehe!

For my first card, do you spy the luscious and beautiful Prima Printery papers?! Love, love! And Michelle has these paper pads IN STOCK and ready for your creative enjoyment. I just love Prima paper... it feels so rich and like I said... luscious hehe!! The stamp collection that I used is the new Bon Jour cling mounted stamp set by JustRite Stampers. I stamped the flourish frame from the collection and cut it out using my Spellbinders Labels 6. The decorative layer underneath is cut out using the Spellbinders Floral Doily Accents Shapeabilities set. The flowers are by Kaisercraft and crystal leaf sprays from my friend Karla's Etsy.

Here are more pics...

For my second card, I used My Minds Eye Lost & Found paper and a few of the new JustRite cling stamp sets available on Stampers Dream: Shabby Chic Labels Four and Greetings from Paris.

The Shabby Chic Labels Four stamp set coordinates nicely with guess what... the Labels 4 Spellbinders Nestabilities set. :-) I love the postcard stamp. it allows you to customize the size of your postcard. :-) The white flower is a Kaiser Craft bloom (you will see the KC blooms on ALL my Stampers Dreams projects just 'cuz I love them so much! hehe!) The red roses are from I Am Roses, green leaves are punched out with a Martha Stewart punch. There's also a little Webster's Pages sparkler peeking out from under the white rose. The butterfly applique is from my scrappy friend Nancy -- I just LOVE it and had to add it in. :-) Bling is from Recollections.

Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my projects today. I'm outtie for now! :-) Have an awesome, awesome weekend!!

hugs! ❤
