Oh So Eclectic

Oh So Eclectic is one of those stamp sets that is part of a Suite that Stampin’ Up! puts together to make it easier to match things up for you.  The Suite is called Naturally Eclectic and includes this stamp set, the matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies, Designer Series Paper (Naturally Eclectic), three colors of matching cardstock, Ribbon and Card Overlays.

I used the stamp set, Oh So Eclectic with the matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies to make this card.  By the way, if you buy these in a Bundle, you can save 10%.  I love that Stampin’ Up! makes dies to cut out the shapes in the stamp set but the best part is they include other dies that do more.  The cut out background is an example of this.  There is also a die in there that just embosses.  It is very cool!

The cardstock colors I used are Whisper White, Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate.  The ink colors are Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral and Old Olive.

The sentiment is from Heartfelt Blooms which is a stamp set you can get for free during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order.  If you buy the Bundle in wood mount, you will be eligible with that alone.  If you buy the Bundle in clear mount you just need to add something small to your order to qualify.

Heartfelt Blooms From A Friend

I had the most wonderful surprise in the mail the other day from Buffy Cooper.  She had made a beautiful card and posted it on her blog and I commented about how gorgeous it was.  The next thing I know, I am getting it in the mail.  Isn’t it beautiful?!?

Buffy used the Sale-a-bration stamp set called Heartfelt Blooms.  You can get this stamp set for free with a $50 order.  She stamped it with Blushing Bride ink on Very Vanilla cardstock twice.  She cut out one piece using the Layering Circles Dies and used the other piece for the background.  She then embossed a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and cut a the scalloped piece with the same dies.  She used Gold 1/8″ Ribbon, 1/4″ Copper Trim and Metallic Thread in Copper behind the circle.  Lastly she added three little Pearl Basic Jewels on the bottom right corner.  My description does not do this card justice.  It really is so beautiful in real life.

Thank you Buffy for sending me this card.  It is my favorite of all the cards I have seen with the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set.
