Oh, Hello Friend

I have been playing lots with the Embossing Paste the last few weeks – loving this stuff &Oh-So-Eclectic-inside also working on a couple of Creative Card Classes.  One of the classes will be using the Paste, so be sure to book your spot.

I teamed the paste up with my new Oh, So Eclectic Bundle which only come in the post last week & has been sitting on my desk waiting & waiting.

Creative Cards are held the 1st & 2nd Tuesday of the month or the 1st & 3rd Saturday of the month…..  You can find all the details on the Classes/Workshop Page.

My card today is so way out of my comfort zone with all the oranges of Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, So Saffaron & Garden Green.  I am so happy with the card that I have actually decided to include it in one of the classes in the next Oh,-So-Eclectic---close-upmonth or so.  Mind you, it doesn’t look much but it has taken me hours to finally create it what with all the playing & changing of colours, but hey that is the fun part of creating.

The flowers have been coloured & blended with my good ol’ Blender Pen.  I don’t know what I would do without it.  I then highlighted the flowers with a little Clear Wink of Stella.  It brings out he colours so much more.

The leaves were stamped using the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & again coloured with Old Olive Ink & Blender Pen.  The Old Olive is a nice contrast against the Garden Green background.

I will let you in on a little secret, the circle was not originally on the card which meant the flowers were sort of lost in the background, so I sponged a die cut circle in So Saffron, popped them on & then onto the card.  Made all the difference as it now looks like a completely different card.

I’m not gonna be mean & not share the tutorial today, so don’t forget to click on the link below to grab it so you, too can create a card.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Happy Birthday

A couple of weeks ago I created 2 cards using the fun “Bike Ride” Bundle.  Well today I amBike-Ride---Iside showing you the 3rd card created using basically the same supplies, colours & layout.  The differences being I’ve used Chocolate Chip as my Base Card, Embossing Paste & Crumb Cake & Chocolate Chip Ink Re-Fills along with Sunshine Sayings for my greeting.

To achieve my “footpath”,  I added a 3 small amounts of Embossing Paste onto the Silicone Craft Sheet, added a very tiny drop of Crumb Cake & Chocolate Chip Ink Refills to 2 of the amounts but not really mixing them.

I placed the “Brick” Decorative Mask to the bottom part of a piece of Whisper White Card, Bike-Ride---Embossing-Pasteapplied the White Embossing Paste followed by the Crumb Cake & then the Chocolate Chip to the Mask.  I found doing it this way, I had a more of a distinctive look with the colours.

The “Happy Birthday” was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS, punched with the Classic Label Punch & adhered behind the bike to look like a “flag”.

I’m finding this Bundle lots of fun with lots of ideas popping into my head as I create my cards.
