ECLECTIC HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

This card I am sharing today was my first play with the Oh! So Eclectic set last week.  I finally get to share it with you.

I have used Stylized Birthday with it for the sentiment.  I really don’t use this sentiment enough. It’s a great size without being overwhelming and I love the font.

I love this Oh So! Eclectic set too as you can stamp with the first stamp, overstamp it with the next one and if it is not lined up properly it doesn’t matter.  That’s the style.  🙂

The detailed flowers were first stamped with Berry Burst and then the solid image with Powder Pink.  Isn’t the washed out look nice?

The leaves are stamped with Lemon Lime Twist for the solid leaf and then Emerald Envy for the “hatched” leaf pattern.  I added some of the little “crossed” pattern in Powder Pink as a background filler.

It’s a very quick card to make a number of Birthday cards in a hurry.

Thanks for looking.  I will be back with some more cards with this set.

BELLA IN PEEKABOO PEACH!

I have another card to show you from our stamping weekend.  I don’t have this set ‘Bella and Friends’ but when I saw Leonie’s card I had to CASE it. I made mine in Peekaboo Peach.  It is very cute. 🙂

It is a very simple card.  The ‘Stylized Birthday’ stamp was stamped directly on to the Peekaboo Peach card base.  You can be very nervous doing that in case it doesn’t stamp right but hey! it is only card right.  Just do it again!  Which I ended up doing anyway but this was the first one I stamped and it was better.

I cut a strip of the ‘Playful Palette’ DSP Paper Stack and punched it with the Banner Punch on the end.  Then I cut a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits from Watercolor paper after I stamped Miss Bella on it.  This cute puppy was coloured with the Aquapainters and inkpads and I coloured the small sections with the markers.

When I was colouring the background I placed the Scalloped Circle Framelit back on the piece. Then I coloured the area with a light wash using the Aquapainters and inkpads again. I had seen this around my blog travels and was keen to try it.  I was pleased with the look and it seems like it is layered but it isn’t.

The piece was then adhered to the card with Dimensionals and all finished with a White Baker’s Twine bow and a little bling with a Rhinestone on her collar.

What do you think of Miss Bella??

Thanks for visiting me.  See you soon with some more projects.
