Simple Easy Card!

I love this card!!!

It was so easy to make!

Stampin'Up has bundled the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and Eclectic Layers Thinlits #145356 to save you 10%.
Oh So Eclectic Clear-Mount Bundle

I placed the die on a piece of 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card stock scored at 4-1/4" and ran it through the Big Twice.

I added a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" Naturally Eclectic Designer paper to the inside of my card. Isn't the ombre style paper gorgeous?

Next I wrapped some Berry Burst 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon #144191 around my card and added a bit of mini Gold Sequin trim #144128.

My flowers and leaves were stamped with Berry Burst and Emerald Envy ink, cut out with the coordinating dies and added to my card.

I placed a Gold Faceted Gem #144141 in the center of my flower.

What do you think?

Painted Harvest Sneak Peak!

I finally used my new stamp set Painted Harvest which is available Sept 1!
This fun stamp set has a coordinating Leaf Punch.

You will be able to buy these in a bundle #146021 giving you a 10% savings.

I'm not ready for Fall cards so I chose more summery colors. I used Daffodil Delight, Calypso Corals, Pear Pizzaz and Fresh Fig.

I created the fun background with Shimmery White card stock and my aqua painter.  I simply painted lines using a bit of water and ink from my ink pad. 

Tip:  If you squeeze a closed ink pad, it leaves a pool of ink on the top of the lid.  Add a tiny bit of water and you can color with it.

I also used the 2-1/4" circle punch and the Bow Builder punch to punch out the sentiment.

If you live in Canada, I would love to help you with your order.
