Paris in Springtime

Hello, I hope you are all keeping warm this snowy winters day and yes it is still snowing, well at least where I am. This week I have made two cards using I love Paris by Stampendous and Travel to Paris by Crafty Individuals, same theme but both very different as you can see from the photo's....

 The first card has been made using the
Crafty Individuals stamp.
The background paper is from a set by Craftwork Cards and the Eiffel tower die is by Marianne Craftables and this tower was cut from 300gsm white card stock. The border has been cut using the Woodware crafty edger ribbon die and the stamped image has been stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured with Victorian Velvet D Ink pad, a little gold embossing has been added and the ribbon is seam binding .
I have also used a Memento Desert   Sand ink pad and a Martha Stewart border punch and two daisy punches and a corner rounder.

 The second card as you will of guessed is made with the Paris stamp by Stampendous. Stamped in black Archival onto tag then stamped and embossed in gold powder onto white card, cut out and layered over the top of first image. The background of the tag has been distressed with Stormy Sky and the flowers I have painted with Festive Berries (any of the red shades will do) both of these are Distress Ink pads. The little corner stamp is from my stash.
Both of the base cards I used are 6x6 square
Hope everyone has a good week, stay warm, see you all soon......
