SU Oh So Eclectic for Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #72

June 26, 2017

Hey there! I finally got around to playing with Monika’s sketch at

Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #72 at Craft Project Central.

I have to say it has a lot of elements but in the end, it all came together:)

 

I used the SU Oh So Eclectic Bundle to create the focal point and used up some scraps of Color Theory DSP.

I loved how the solid flower stamp goes beyond the lined image stamp of the flower –

no white outline when die cut. See what I mean? Nice touch, I think.

I only used a simple stamp and die on this card but there are some other REALLY cool things in the bundle!!!

Take a few minutes hear what Shannon West from the SU office has to say about the Oh So Eclectic Bundle:

Happy Birthday, Gorgeous Bundle

June 14, 2017

We had our Annual Catalog Kick-Off Luncheon/Dinner last Saturday and Sunday. We made three cards, fueled up with some food, and made three more cards. It just blows me away how blessed I am to have all these crafty ladies in my life! Thank you, Stampin’ Up for bringing us all together!!!

Here is one of the cards we made using the delicious new Berry Burst and Lemon Lime colors:)


It is hard to see in the photo, but I embossed the white panel with the retired Polka Dots EF. Any embossing folder would add texture to the card, though. I just could not get my paws on my new OH MY STARS embossing folder at the time…lol. Isn’t that new self adhesive In Color Itty Bitty Bow just too cute?!?! And, we tried out the new adhesive sheets on the Happy Birthday thinlit which was easy peasy!

Look at these cute little images on the inside, too!

I love that the Happy Birthday thinlit is a stand alone item, but the stamp set it is bundled with at a 10% discount is awesome! I love the variety of sentiments, the balloons, flowers/leaves/stems, and the little tassel and bow:) I say it’s a little bit of everything! And, of course, many of us need that “belated” sentiment from time to time…

As always, if you have any questions,

send me an email at CindyLeeBee@gmail.com,

Thanks for buzzing by, friends….
