The Naturally Eclectic Suite on pages 132 – 133 of the Annual Catalogue is so pretty. I love the colors that are shown from the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon – Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach, Berry and Emerald Envy to the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and the Naturally Eclictic Card Overlays! Oh, and I haven’t mentioned the Naturally Eclectic DSP!
While the images are very bright, I went the opposite route for my card share today – subtle tones.
I chose Peekaboo Peach for the card base and one of the soft sheets of the DSP to build my card. A panel of the DSP is layered with one last year’s doilies then a panel of Whisper White stamped with the petal image In Pear Pizzazz, Peekaboo Peach and Soft Sky. I stamped off the Peach and Pear Pizzazz and used the Soft Sky at full strength as it is a very light color. I then stamped the flower image using Berry Burst. I used Soft Sky to stamp the background with one of the little flower centres available in the stamp set.
The stamped image is popped up with dimensionals and the sentiment is also popped up with dimensionals. Thank you Kathleen for the layout!
Next on my list to do with the set is to cut a mask with the thinlit and use it with some of the embossing paste. Looking forward to trying that!
Thanks for stopping by and have a happy stamping day!
There are only two stamps in Floral Statements but I think that they pack such a statement with just those two.
I needed some thank you cards and this is one that I made using the Thanks stamp from the set. The card base is Pink Pirouette with a mat of Pear Pizzazz. Each time I use the Black Archival ink I am awestruck with the crispness of the black and always let out a “wow” when I pull the stamp away from the card stock. I colored the flowers with Pink Pirouette and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz markers and added a few of the retired dots.
When I first started with SU, one of the color combinations that I used a lot was Mossy Meadow and Pretty in Pink and I still think it’s a great combination with today’s shades of pink and green.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful stamping weekend.
A window card is a pretty and easy card to make and today’s card uses the Artistically Asian stamp set.
You only need two pieces of card stock cut 4 1/4″ x 5″ and score at 1/2″, 1″, 4 1/2″ and 5″ on both pieces. I stamped the bamboo image using Versamark on the Peekaboo Peach card stock piece to give it a subtle background.
Use the 2 1/2″ Circle punch and centre it on the Peekabook Peach piece and put the card stock right to the bottom of the circle. The reason for putting right to the edge of the circle is that I wanted to stamp the sentiment towards the bottom. (You could just centre the punch in the centre of the card stock).
I flipped the piece over so that there was more space at the bottom of the card stock to stamp the sentiment.
Position the Peach card stock over the Whisper White card stock and gently mark the outer rim of the circle to give you a visual to stamp your image. After stamping the image, erase the pencil marks.
I inked up the image with Peekaboo Peach and Old Olive markers and huffed on it before stamping on the card stock. The sentiment is stamped with Old Olive classic ink and pearls were added to complete the card.
Fold on the score marks on both pieces of card stock and adhere the edges with Tear and Tape. Bend the score lines to create a window effect.
Thanks for stopping by today and happy stamping!
At our stamping event, my friend, Janet, demonstrated two fantastic cards. For the first one she showed us the basket weave technique and used the Graceful Garden stamp set and co-ordinating Petal Garden Designers Series Paper Stack.
With the return of the Glossy White card stock, Janet’s second card featured the polished stone technique. The card base is Fresh Fig. The reinkers she used to create the polished stone effect was Pink Pirouette and Fresh Fig with the gold metallic. She finished the card with the dragonfly and a Swirly Scribbles thinlit.
Thanks so much Janet for two wonderful demonstrations!
We had a lot of mom and daughter attendees and here they are.
and Maxine, one of my team members.
Thanks for stopping by on this beautiful day before the long Canada Day weekend. Happy stamping!
My team and I held our Step into Summer stamping event on Saturday. What a great time we had and the weather was very summery in Metro Vancouver as it was a hot, hot, hot day. How appropriate was that for our event.
Along with the projects, we had prize patrol, wow demonstrations, lots of displays (of which I totally forgot to take pictures!), refreshments, prize baskets, table treats and a card swap. Everyone had a great time and left with 6 projects.
This was one of the favourites and I’ll be sharing some of the others in the next few days but I need to put the finishing touches to the projects for Stamp Club today.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping.
Tabs for Everything was one of the sets we received at OnStage earlier this year. I really didn’t see how I would use it until I received the current issue of Stampin’ Success that featured this set. It comes as a bundle with the new Circle Tab Punch.
I made this mini pizza box with the set for my Open House last weekend.
And I cased the note cards that were in the magazine.
The punch is just too cute.
Some great uses for the Circle Tab punch are:
- Make tabs for the catalogue for the different categories
- Punch out the color of card stock you use on a section of the stamping sponges and staple it to the sponge so it identifies the ink color you are using. We used to have the tab punch that served the same purpose.
- Use it as a pull tab on your various projects
- Stamps: Tabs for Everything (Bundle with Circle Tab Punch #145364 – $40)
- Paper: Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Subtles DSP
- Ink: Pool Party, Powder Pink, Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder,Black Archival
- Accessories: Circle Tab Punch, Layering Circles Framelits, Dimensionals, Retired Twine

This Birthday Delivery stamp set has so many adorable images and this is one of the sweetest.
She’s so cute with the surprise package behind her. I started with the Lemon Lime Twist card stock and layered a piece of Whisper White card stock cut 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ on the top and cut a piece of the Lemon Lime Twist Fresh Florals DSP cut 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ for the bottom.
The image is stamped with Black Archival ink and color added with a Blender pen. I cut her out using the Oval Layering framelits and matted it to a piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock cut with the oval Stitched Shapes framelits.
I wrapped a length of retired Whisper White ribbon over the middle of the layer and attached to the card front. I popped up the art image with dimensionals and finished the card with the sentiment stamped with Black Archival ink.

This stamp set is definitely a Floral Statement and one of my top 10 picks from this year Annual Catalogue.
The stamp set just jumped out at me when I was going through the catalogue and knew it was a must have!
The card base is Rich Razzleberry with a layer of Old Olive. I stamped the image on Whisper White using Black Archival ink. I brought out the Watercolor pencils and colored the flowers with Rich Razzleberry and the leaves with Old Olive. I used a blender pen to spread out the color and finished the card front with some sequins from the Frosted Sequins package.

Everything old is new again, right? It’s been sometime since I made a card using the Cracked Glass technique and at our last club class, we decided to use this technique and this is the result.
Stampin’ Up! used to carry a product called Glassy Glaze that you need for this technique but it was discontinued. We used the UTEE that you can get from your local hobby store to produce the cracked glass effect.
For the cracked technique, we stamped the images on the Whisper White card stock. Then cover the entire piece with Versamark and then sprinkle the UTEE over it and heat with the heat tool. While it is still warm, add another layer of UTEE and heat again. Repeat this process for a total of 3 runs. Place in the freezer for a few minutes and gently “crack” the image that provided a cracked glass effect. You can add more texture to your art piece by sponging one of the colors used for the stamped images into the cracked grooves.
We used the new Oh My Stars embossing folder for the background layer. The stamp set is Touches of Texture and the ink colors are Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight.
