Card received, cards made!

A huge thank you to Franziska, who sent me this beautiful card and a couple of stamps. This card looks like a French village..


Isn't it beautiful. The tree is the Classic Evergreen stamp from Hero Arts. The background is made with 'A Village' stamp from Hero Arts - S5432.
Wouldn't it be great if there were card samples we could see with a stamp before we buy it. I don't mean on the screen but in real life. Its like when you see a cake. If you can just taste a sample and you like it, you usually end up  buying it. Its a great technique that markets and shops employ. They sell a lot of wine this way :)
Having this beautiful card in my own hands, I saw the beauty of decorating this beautiful tree and now I am looking out for it! Just think of using up all the stray little strass and pearls one has and how their value is pronounced.
Well, with the stamps she sent me, which were a rose and several different leaves, I made three different cards:


I used the Simple Frame stamp from Hero Arts S5324 to outline the flowers and leaves. The thank you sentiment is Hero Arts as well.


I used the Village stamp as background from Hero Arts S5432.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts on this last card. The roses and leaves are from Cart-Us - never heard of them before.
Have a lovely Sunday!

  6. Oh Jacqueline, your work is so beautiful and inspiring. What is the frame you used for the second card, the Thank you one with the roses. Is it a stamp? From which company, it is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for sharing. Bonne année 2015!
