Hello, Oh So Eclectic stamp set! It’s been a while since I played with you. It’s time to stamp with one of your fabulous flowers.
Oh So Eclectic Thank You Card
Oh So Eclectic happens to be the designated stamp set for today’s What Will You Stamp challenge. Since I’m one of the designers, I get to create a project, using a different Stampin’ Up! stamp set, every Monday morning. I sure hope you’ll play along.
I first stamped three flowers using Versamark, the Embossing Buddy, White Embossing Powder, and the Heat Tool.
Next, I colored the flowers using a Real Red Watercolor Pencil, Aqua Painter, and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. And, I added two Whisper White sprigs that were cut with a die from the Eclectic Layers die set.
I decided on a Gray Granite base card with Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to surround my Whisper White, floral, art piece.
And, then I took suggestions from the challenge at TGIF. The right, row, down is: flowers-negative space-thread.
I used a label die from the Merry Christmas die set to make my negative space, leaving Wood Textures peeking through. I stamped it with “thank you” in Black ink, using the Stamparatus for positioning. The sentiment is from the Vertical Greetings stamp set.
The final detail of Silver Thread and a Silver Foil sprig were added to complete TGIF’s TIC Tac Toe challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope to see your project in the What Will You Stamp Gallery. The more the merrier!
All of the supplies are available at my store, and listed below.
Welcome to the What Will You Stamp Challenge, and today’s featured stamp set, Blended Seasons. My favorite part of the Color Your Seasons bundle is the die set, Stitched Seasons. I’m using three of its dies in today’s project.
Stitched Seasons Dies Frame Dashing Deer
The Stitched Seasons die set has 10 dies, which I’ve pictured in my product list below, for you to see. I used the largest die to cut the stitched frame beneath Rudolf (he likes being called by name) in Crumb Cake cardstock. Don’t you love the stitched edging? Then, I used the medium die to cut the frame in Very Vanilla, and emboss it with the Subtle Textured embossing folder. Because Rudolf wanted to fly, I raised it on Stampin’ Dimensionals for elevation.
Rudolf (Detailed Deer die) was made wooden by using Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, and layering him three times for thickness. His pretty Gold Foil collar is from a die in the same Detailed Deer die set.
I chose a wonderful plaid from Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper to layer on the Crumb Cake card base.
The inside of the card shows off the third die I used from Stitched Seasons, a fabulous, little bow. I made it plaid by cutting it from the plaid Festive Farmhouse DSP. Don’t you like how the Very Vanilla, Stitched Seams die cut completes the card and provides the perfect place for a sentiment?
The sentiment is from the Dashing Deer stamp set, which I stamped in Cherry Cobbler.
Another piece of Festive Farmhouse DSP caught my eye, and I HAD to cut into the 12″X12″ piece to decorate the Very Vanilla envelope.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you were inspired by my design, and I’d love for you to play along with the WWYS challenge.
The Color Your Seasons bundle was a special offer, so the last day to order the Stitched Seasons dies and Blended Seasons stamp set will be August 31st, or until supplies last. Hurry, so you don’t miss out. The Dashing Deer bundle and Festive Farmhouse DSP will be available Sept. 5th. Happy stamping!
I’m so excited to be joining the “What Will You Stamp” design team! Each week we get to design a project using a current Stampin’ Up! stamp set. Then, we ask everyone who has the stamp set to join us in posting their creations. For my very first week, it’s A Little Wild!
I may have gone “a little wild” with A Little Wild. It started off as a simple scene, but I soon decided to cut it up into a jigsaw puzzle. I began with a piece of Whisper White cardstock, 3 1/2″ X 3 1/2″, stamping images (bear, bees, hive, grass, flower) and sentiment (“hello there, honey bear”) in Memento Black ink.
A Little Wild What Will You Stamp Challenge
It was fun adding a little color with Stampin’ Blends.
Isn’t Honey Bear adorable! I thought this scene would make a cute jigsaw puzzle, so I got out my die from the Puzzle Pieces die set, and ran it through the Big Shot.
My cute jigsaw puzzle now needed a background, and I’d been anxious to use the new Corrugated embossing folder from the Holiday catalog. It gave wonderful texture, and the straight lines made it easy to glue the puzzle pieces down.
I decided to add a little more interest by having a few missing puzzle pieces, and leaving Honey Bear in one piece. This time, I stamped Honey Bear on Shimmery White cardstock, colored him with Stampin’ Blends, and used his Little Loves die for cutting.
The inside of the card ties it all together. I stamped the two puzzle pieces (“Love You” and “To Pieces”) from the Puzzle Pieces stamp set in Crumb Cake and Pear Pizzazz. The corners were decorated by using the Detailed Trio Punch.
Lastly, the envelope flap was decorated by stamping grass and the flower from A Little Wild.
