I came across this lovely patterned paper in my stash - undoubtedly it isn't available anymore [in other words: don't ask about THAT either!] I fell in love with the colors and fun way they've colored the images … had to give it a go, stamped on a natural cardstock, colored with Copics [below].
warning: for those CAS-loving crafters, these may not be your tasse de thê but it was so fun! and Frenchie loves it! [is it me, or does he look a bit intimidated by that little poodle?]
Another one? ... Oui! = wheeeeee!

I do hope you'll look at your supplies through a different lens … one never knows how you'll see them today!
Michele, two wonderful cards. I love the DP with the stamps :)
LOVE how you built your cards with these patterned background papers! And, I'm bummed that the papers were from your stash because holy moly everything just meshes together so delightfully!
how absolutely perfect! Super love both of your projects!
What joyful cards, Michele! Looks like you had so much fun with them and your playfulness and delight shines through. Thanks for sharing!
Ok, so now I have this uncontrollable urge to go through my paper tower and find papers that are as cool as these are. I'm pretty sure I have some fun ones in there (or at least with the thousands of sheets in that darn tower, I SHOULD have...lol). Never been much of a scooter stamp lover until seeing this one. It's adorable. And so is Frenchie and his snooty pootie! Great card in a great shape. Rockin' it. Hope there wasn't perfume in those boxes! Wouldn't it be fun to scoot around Paris and just shop?! That's what this card says to me. Maybe some day... Great cards today babe. Love 'em! xo Sending warmer weather across the Lake. Bev
What fun and a perfect way to use that designer paper! Love the sense of movement on the second card! At first I thought Frenchie was falling off, but I'm wondering if he's off to follow that poodle and make friends?
Oh my...absolutely LOVING both these cards Michele!! That scooter is wonderful and I love that Tom calls you that...too funny!! Your use of DSP in both of these cards is FABULOUS too...both of these cards just totally make me smile!! :0)
Such a pretty combination!
What's not to love about these little French dishes??? They are over the top adorable! I love the patterned papers you found in your stash and that poodles and scooter.... They are just perfect... oui!
I'm with the Frenchies...love both these two, too. The colors are so frech and soothing. Think the Vespa must feel very at home on these card, as do the pups.
Magnifique! C'est Bon! Ooh La La! Eclair! ...I was running out of French words that I know lol.
Ohhhh gosh, I LOVE these, Michele! What a fab inspo on using Copics in a different way..It scares me to try, but that's why I love it! A little bit of fear is good, right? Love both these papers AND your cute little name ;) Sending biggest hugs!
Both cards are so fun, Michele! You found the perfect patterned paper to create this delightful scene. I especially love the adorable dog wearing the sunglasses, yelling "Oui!"
Look at you getting all patterned paper-y and working your coloring moves!! FABULOUSNESS my friend!!
Wow there is so much to see here....poodles and perfume and scooters and sweet splashes of color! Adorable cards!
I'm so glad you had that paper, Michele, because it inspired you to make these fabulous scooter cards. Love the colors and that camo scooter adorable.
Sooooooo cool, Michele ... doesn't surprise me that you had these stunning stylish papers in your stash, they're gorgeous ... and they're so perfect with your soft colouring of that fabulous scooter on each card! A touch of French sophistication with your lovely humour, my friend ... les merveilles! Hugs, Anita :)
Love these, Michele! That is such cool paper and I adore your fun designs. The scooters and your impressionistic coloring create a perfect scene. Bet you and Frenchie would enjoy toddling around Paris!
Gosh! Your cards are perfect, but you're an even better enabler! You just MADE me go buy the scooter stamp set!!! Thanks, enjoying your cards while mine's enroute!
Every time you take your scooter out for a ride, I am so inspired, Michele! I may be a CAS fan, but I am really LOVING your cards today!!!
