One Card Wonder Wednesday - January 8, 2020 - Parisian Beauty


Welcome to my blog and today's One Card Wonder Wednesday!  I wanted to make a romantic, soft, feminine card today.  I haven't made, what I consider, a card with a lot of fluff in a while.  That changes today.  I looked through my new stamp sets and chose the Parisian Beauty stamp set.  

Have you seen the Parisian Beauty stamp set yet?
If you haven't, scroll down to the product list at the end of the post and click the image to get a close up of it in my Stampin' UP!® store.
It is definitely a new favorite of mine.
It can be purchased alone, in a bundle with the coordinating dies, or in a bundle suite with the dies, Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper, Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder, Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Petal Pink Metallic-Edge Ribbon, and the 
Forever Blossoms Bundle.

The card I made today evokes romantic vibes with the copper, heat embossed Eiffel Tower and the sentiment "YOU'RE THE JOY OF MY LIFE".  I love that the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper has champagne foil accents.  It really makes this paper elegant.  I added some vellum to add some extra fluff.  You all know that I love vellum!  

In an effort to make this card even more feminine, I used two additional sets of dies.  Do you know which ones they are?   I know, this card has lots of layers, I couldn't help myself.  

I absolutely love the way the champagne accents in the DSP look with the Copper embossing.  The two just look seamless together.  

For the inside I just stamped the beautiful filigree from the stamp set in Pool Party ink at the top and bottom of the Whisper White Card Stock.  

Here is a close-up of the card.  You can see the detail of the Eiffel Tower stamp with the copper embossing.  I hope you have enjoyed today's blog post.  Don't forget to watch the video, buy your supplies from me, and make this card for yourself! 

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!
I live & love to inspire you!

Measurements & Instructions
  1. Cut a piece of Petal Pink Card Stock 4 1/4in. x 11 in., score at 5 1/2in. and fold on score line.
  2. Cut a piece of Vellum Cardstock 4in. x 5 1/4in. and emboss it with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.
  3. Cut a piece of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper 3in. x 4in.
  4. In Versamark Ink stamp the Eiffel Tower onto Pool Party Card Stock and sprinkle with Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Then heat set with the Heat Tool.
  5. Using the Parisian Dies, die cut the Eiffel Tower.
  6. Using the Lily Pad Dies, die cut the long Petal Pink row of "raindrops"...I wanted all of the little pieces to stay in the die cut so I layered a piece of vellum card stock over the petal pink before I die cut.  It kept the tiny little pieces in.
  7. Using the Painted Labels Dies, die cut the round, stitched vellum piece.  Also die cut a small piece of Champagne Foil Sheet with the lacy die.  
  8. Cut a piece of Petal Pink card stock 1/2in. x 3in. and stamp the sentiment "YOU'RE THE JOY OF MY LIFE" in Memento Ink.  Snip the right end of the card stock to make it a banner tail.
  9. Using Tombow Multipurpose glue, adhere the Designer Series Paper to the embossed Vellum Card Stock.  Then adhere the layered piece to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  10. Thread the top of the Eiffel Tower through the Vellum Painted Label Die Cut and adhere together with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.  
  11. Adhere the Champagne Foil Lace Die Cut to the back of the sentiment banner using Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
  12. Adhere the banner to the Eiffel Tower layered piece using Tombow Multipurpose Glue and then using Stampin' Dimensionals adhere the piece to the front of the card. 
  13. Put a Stampin' Dimensional at the right and left end of the Lily Pad Die Cut "Raindrops" piece, then put a thin strip of Tombow Multipurpose glue along the rest of the die cut piece.  Adhere it to the front of the card sliding it under the edge of the Champagne Foil lacy piece.
  14. Tie a bow with the Petal Pink Metallic Edged Ribbon.  Adhere to the left end of the sentiment banner using a Mini Glue Dot.
  15. Embellish the card with Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
  16. Cut a piece of Whisper White Card Stock 4in. x 5 1/4in. and stamp the long filigree image in Pool Party Ink on the top center and bottom center.  Adhere to the inside of the card using Snail Adhesive or Tombow Multipurpose Glue.  Voila!
