Introducing Big Notes in French II and French Country Backgrounds…

Hello crafty friends! And welcome to Day 3 of our Release! I hope you are enjoying all the inspirations! Today, we are introducing two new sets, Big Notes in French II and French Country Backgrounds. They coordinate beautifully with our French Country set that we will be introducing tomorrow!





First up today is our Big Notes in French II stamp set. I love these French sentiments! Je pense a toi means I am thinking of you! It sounds so romantic and works beautifully with my shabby chic card today!

For the background of my sentiment, I stamped some flowers from our Summer Flowers set that we introduced yesterday! I then added some IBS Cream Crochet Tape and IBS Seam Binding Ribbon.

For my 2nd card, I created this anniversary card. My parents anniversary was on June 1st and this is their card. Smile

Inspired by Stamping Whimiscal Banners

I used the Whimiscal Banners, Background Basics III and the Big Notes in French II stamp sets. I love this great big flower! After rolling it, I then added a little filigree bead to the center and punched out some leaves.

For my 3rd card, I focused on the French Country Backgrounds. This great set comes with 3 different backgrounds. I love the distress feel of the checkerboard in the set! So fun!

I randomly stamped my flowers from the Summer Flowers stamp set and then added the other background layers.

“Merci Beaucoup” means Thank You Very Much in French! I stitched around the entire card for a little more details.

My last card highlights the French Country Background set with the Chicken Wire in the background of my card.

Inspired by Stamping Words of Inspiration

I used the Words of Inspiration sentiment for my card. My die cut out is from last week’s WHW tutorial. I love all the different shapes that you can create with the dies! My rolled flowers are from the Silhouette store.

I hope that you enjoyed today’s cards! Please take a moment and let us know what you think about our new sets today! We love hearing from you!
