Inspired By Stamping Sneak Peek - Background Basics III & French Notes

Good morning everyone!  We're in the middle of our May Release Party for Inspired By Stamping, and today's featured stamps are Background Basics III & Big Notes in French.  The entire release will be available for purchase on May 10th at 7 p.m. Brisbane time (5 a.m. Eastern Standard Time).  See the end of this post for more details, including Blog Candy.

I decided to dress up a plain stationery set for my sister in law, who adores anything French with fleur de lis images.  Music notes are one of the background stamps in the Background Basics III set, which also includes an antique script and fun polka dot pattern.  I stamped the music notes in tan across the top of each page, then topped it with a sentiment from Big Notes In French in bold black.


I also used one of my all-time fave IBS sets, Paris, to help complete this set.  The  Eiffel Tower clock face and fleur de lis grace each page's bottom right corner, and the envelopes received some decoration, too.
