Bonjour!!

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful Easter and that the Easter Bunny brought you lots of yummy goodies...or crafty supplies!! It was such a beautiful weekend here - sunny and high 70's. The sunsets were vibrant and gorgeous. The trees are budding, the grass is green...spring may finally be here to stay (knock on wood ;)


I have a springtime in Paris tag to share with you today :) The base is a Prima Mixed Media Tag Pad. The papers are from Prima's En Francais paper stack. The edges were distressed with a Zutter Distress-It-All and inked with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink. The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is from my sweet friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces.


I used a Julie Nutting Priscilla w/Top Hat Doll stamp. She was stamped on old book paper. Her black lace was created with heavyweight black cardstock and a stamp from Tim's Floral Tattoo stamp set that was heat embossed with white embossing powder. Tulle was used for her skirt. The sentiment banner is a Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Flag Die. Smooches is from JustRite's Ooh La La French Frills stamp set.


The adorable Poodle is a CottageCutz die. She was covered with Doodlebug Designs Sugar Coating Lily White Glitter and given a collar of crystal gems from Prima's Say It In Crystals.


The flowers are a mixture of Prima and The Paper Studio. Copper wire was twisted and added among the blooms.


The Eiffel Tower is a CottageCutz die and it was adorned with crystals. The larger butterfly is my favorite Memory Box Butterfly die, also covered in Doodlebug Designs Sugar Coating. The smaller butterfly is a punch. The banners are Taylored Expressions Banner Stacklets 1 dies, adorned with Prima Say It In Crystals. The side tag is a Spellbinders Address Book die. Ooh La La and Bonjour are from the JustRite Ooh La La French Frills Stamp set.

My sweetest friend, this is amazing! You squeezed in so many gorgeous elements into such a small space... it's just mind-boggling. :o) The doll looks AMAZING! I especially love the tulle and heat-embossed black lace. Just stunning. An Eiffel Tower die is high on my wish list and I just love this one. The poodle is precious and the flower arrangement is lovely. All of the sugar coating is so beautiful throughout! Brilliant and inspiring design, my dear Lisa! I hope you have a happy day. :o)

MaryH said...

Such a lot of Parisienne glamour on this beautifully detailed card. Love the French lady with her lace tights, frilly short skirt and that delightful top hat. Just like playing with paper dolls again, I'll bet. Loved the sugary butterflies, and the tower & poodle just added a bit more icing on the tag. Liked the idea of have the bookprint as the shaped form too. Those flowers were lovely, and what a beautiful detail to add the copper wiring. Great design, Miss Lisa. TFS & Hugs
