Oh So Eclectic!

These colors are amazing together. What do you think? I would never think to put them together, but Stampin’ Up! did and I LOVE it!

Here the colors come from the beautiful Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. I just played off that and used some of those colors! This card is made completely of items from the Naturally Eclectic Suite, the stamps, the dies, the paper and the ribbon. The ribbon, oh my gosh the ribbon!! This is my absolute favorite ribbon! I love seam binding, and when they came out with the crinkled seam binding I knew it would be my favorite! Have you tried it yet? You must!

A Rustic Hello!

Today’s fun card is for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge! These challenges are so much fun! There’s a lot of freedom in choosing three elements you want to use from the tic tac toe board. Here is the board for this challenge:

For my card today I chose the far right vertical row: wood, yellow, and embellishment. The wood was easy…the new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack is perfect! The sheet I’m using here looks like a piece of wood with white peeling paint, love it!

Ok, so I’m crazy about the Oh So Eclectic Bundle. There are so many possibilities! The leaves here are stamped with a cross-hatch leaf stamp and then die cut with coordinating dies. And I love these flowers! You use two dies to cut the lacy-looking flowers, and then just one of those dies to cut the Whisper White background of the flower.

One thing I really like about using this Wood Textures paper is that it’s a super quick way to make a rustic shabby card (and I really like shabby!).
