Paris, Anyone?

During the six years I spent growing up in Germany, we did a lot of traveling around Europe. We visited Italy, Holland, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, England and Luxembourg. Now, we may have driven through parts of France but Paris was never one of our stops. It is on my list of someday places.

Today I am showing you a sneak peak of a new set being released tomorrow by Cornish Heritage Farms. It is part of their ATC line and is called Haute Couture. It is hands down the most fun I have had with a stamp set in a loooong time! I just adore the Eiffel Tower stamp!

For this first one, I used several of the images to create a collage tag. There is some masking, sponging and distressing going on here. I got a bit inky on this one, lol. I also used an amber colored glitter gem from Making Memories behind the tag for a bit of bling.

The first one is more vintage/shabby, this next one is more clean and fresh.

The card base is 3.5 by 5.5 and the stamped image extends up just far enough that it will still fit into an A2 envie. I love the colors in the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper! Ignore my stitches pulling up in the corners, lol. I finally figured out that my bobbin wasn't wound around the right thingamabobbie.

What do you think? I have more samples to share tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by, have a fab Monday!

OH Tracy these are awesome! I can see you had fun. That tent topper card is my fav. Fabulous colors and I love how you've patterned the stamps!

I didn't remember that you'd lived in Europe. Can you speak some Deutsch? :)
