Kinda Eclectic

Hi there! I sure haven't posted much this week. I have made a few projects, but kept forgetting to take pics of them!! Anyway, today's card uses the stamp set called Kinda Eclectic. I used every stamp in this set, and the name says it all. A fun mix of images that all look wonderful together.

I'm not that good with collage work, but I'm proud of myself for pulling this one off! :) I didn't have any plan when starting to stamp, I just went here and there with the images. The two butterflies match the punches, so super easy to do.

I also ended up using six different colors as well! They are Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Pear Pizzazz(two greens I'm counting as one), So Saffron, Crumb Cake, Tangelo Twist, and Marina Mist. I'm starting to take quite a liking to the blue of Marina Mist. So you will more than likely see more of it! :)

I did emboss the yellow panel with the Perfect Polka Dots folder, just to add more interest, and the paper doily added a girly flair.

That's it for me today, thank you for visiting!!

Feeling Girly with Blushing Bride and Lace

Hello, and Happy Friday!! I was in a girly, girly mood the other day while crafting, and this card came to life. It uses soft, pretty colors, and of course the pink Blushing Bride for the flower and card base. The flower is from the Crazy About You stamp set, and I fussy cut it out, and added a matching candy dot to the center.

The Dictionary background stamp added a bit of vintage to it by stamping it in Sahara Sand, then I stamped a small strip with the I Love Lace background stamp in Soft Sky. I did punch the edge to make it look like a real lace border.

The leaves were punched out with the Bird Builder punch, and the sentiment is from the Peace, Love and Cupcakes set and layered with more punches. A few pearls added the last girly touch. 

Today is the last day for the free shipping offer!! I got my order in the other day! :)

Better Than Email

Today I have a card tutorial that focuses on the Better Than Email stamp set. This is one of the stamp sets that is on the monthly photopolymer releases that Stampin' Up! offers. There are lots of cute images that can be used on envelopes, backs of cards, but I used one as the postage stamp on my card. The snail mail is so fun!

Hope you enjoy the video, I of course make mistakes and almost lose my main image, but that's the way the film rolls for me!! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

In The Eye of The Beholder

I love this quote from the Moon Lake stamp set. What you may look at and see, another may see something completely different.

That's why I chose this tree image from the Festival of Trees stamp set, and inked it with Perfect Plum. Goes along with the quote I think. Wouldn't it be pretty to have a few purple trees around?!

The grassy area and the clouds are from the Sheltering Tree stamp set. I love to mix and match stamp sets together. I also added tiny pearls to the flowers of the tree, may be hard to see.
