Oh So Eclectic




Smiley from Millan.Net

This is me doing a happy dance because the Man in Brown brought a big box of NEW GOODIES for me to play with! Of course, as soon as I opened the box I had to stop dancing....kinda hard to stamp straight if you're wiggling, ya know.


The first thing I wanted to play with was the Oh So Eclectic bundle, because I LOVE the flowers, and I LOVE the coordinating die set! The stamp sets are available in either clear-mount, or wood-mount. You can purchase the stamps and dies separately or bundle them and save 10%!


I had a 2" x 6" scrap piece of Color Theory DSP, and found the 2" width fits perfectly behind the die cut! I think the Crushed Curry ombre is just lovely, and is the perfect background for the Fresh Fig flowers (say that five times fast!).


I really should be getting the rest of my garden planted, but I can't drag myself out of the craft room! Maybe I'll wait until it cools off later today. Meanwhile, I'll play a bit more. If I do a load of laundry, perhaps I can convince my hubby that I'm being productive.

Here's the "How To"
 Flowers/leaves: Shimmery White scraps
 Die cut background: Shimmery White 3" x 4-1/4"
 Mat: Fresh Fig 3-1/8" x 4-3/8"
 DSP: Color Theory 2" x 4-1/4"
 Card base: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored & folded at 4-1/4"
  1. Stamp plus signs in Crushed Curry ink on card base, as shown.
  2. Cut Shimmery White background with the diamond die, having die centered. Use dots of liquid glue to attach DSP behind it. Adhere to Fresh Fig mat.
  3. Stamp vertical greeting in black as shown. Attach to card base with dimensionals.
  4. Stamp leaves in Garden Green on a scrap of Shimmery White. Stamp large flower in Fresh Fig and color with a Blender Pen and Fresh Fig ink. Color flower center with Crushed Curry. Use corresponding dies to cut them out.
  5. Color smaller flower with Fresh Fig Stampin' Write Marker and the stem with Garden Green marker, using the marker to stamp technique. Huff on the stamp to re-moisten ink and stamp. Color flower and stem with Blender Pen in ink. Use corresponding die to cut it out.
  6. Attach flowers and leaves to background with dimensionals. Add Glitter Enamel dots.
