Published in Papers and Pixels magazine!

Life has been moving at such a quick pace since the kids started back to school.  With all that's been going on, I forgot to post this card, which was published in the online magazine, Papers and Pixels, September 2012 issue.  My card was included in an article about Joanna Munster, owner of Inspired By Stamping.  Joanna kindly asked each of the IBS design team members to create something special for the issue.



I used the set Paris exclusively for this card.  I made my own background print from fleur de lis and laurel wreath stamps included in the set.


I stamped another fleur de lis very lightly behind the Eiffel Tower on the clock face.  The punched star is made from cereal box chipboard, edges inked, then coated in clear glitter (I have a whole bag of these...just sat and made 'em up one day).  The paper rose and the crochet lace are from IBS, too.


I stamped the decorative flourish from Paris with white craft ink on black cardstock, then topped it with two different-sized pearls.


Thanks so much for joining me today!  I always love when you visit.  :-)

Stunning card! Congrats on the publication! I love the touch of pearls on the fleur de lis jobbers! Well done. I had to laugh when I saw the puppy, I thought why is Ann Schach's Lexi on there as I thought you had a card in that issue! I guess I had Ann on my mind when I opened your E-mail. Goofy on my part. Love your card!
