Merci Mon Amie

Mar 23, 2016 Hero Arts Info

Hello, or rather, Bonjour! Ernest Hemingway famously said, "There are only two places in the world where we can live happy: at home and in Paris." Although I've never been to Paris, I imagine myself traveling there every time that I use the beautiful [hero_product_link sku="H5984" text="Eiffel Tower"] stamp. Today, I'm sharing a French inspired thank-you card that I made featuring this iconic Paris monument.

First, I stamped the [hero_product_link sku="H5984" text="Eiffel Tower"] stamp on a piece of [hero_product_link sku="PS610" text="white layering paper"] with [hero_product_link sku="AF345" text="Intense Black Ink"]. I applied a quick, yellow watercolor wash over the stamped image and then fussy-cut around the tower shape.

To create a subtle and feminine background with a splash of sunny color, I started by stenciling a faint, floral pattern onto white paper. Using a foam applicator, I gently "pounced" [hero_product_link sku="AF257" text="Silver Ink"] over the [hero_product_link sku="SA067" text="Bold Floral Stencil"]. The result is a soft, elegant, and shimmery pattern. To add a pop-of-color to the black, white and gray design, I applied some yellow watercolors to the center of the stenciled panel. When the paper completely dried, I adhered the Eiffel Tower image.

I added a custom sentiment strip, Merci Mon Amie, or Thank You My Friend, that I created with [hero_product_link sku="DC181" text="Kelly's Alpha Tabs Stamp & Cut"] clear alphabet set. I love how easily these letters align for perfect sentiments every time. I sewed some stitching along the lower edge, mounted the panel to a [hero_product_link sku="PS697" text="gray"] card base, added a silver satin bow, and finally, placed a few scattered, [hero_product_link sku="CH215" text="black gems"] for extra interest.

Au revoir, wishing you another wonderful and crafty week!

I recently bought Hero Arts die-cut D1379. Does this stamp H5984 coordinate with it? Is it still available, and where can I get it?
