Oh So Eclectic #SSINKCS46 Sketch Challenge

Oh So Eclectic
By now you’ve had the chance to drool over the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog and I’m sure you were blown away by the colorful designs on the front cover.  Today’s card features several products from the catalog cover, including the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and the coordinating Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.  I used this week’s sketch from Stylin’ Stampin’ INKSpiration for my layout.  Be sure to visit the SSINK blog and play along with us this week.

At first glance, this card probably looks fairly simple.  However, it took some work to line everything up properly.  I had to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig and a little masking technique to create the layered flowers.  It is rare for me to dust off the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  I’m very much an “eyeball it” kind-of girl, but I could not line these flowers up correctly without it.  Perhaps, you’ll have better luck!  If you are interested in seeing a video on how I stamped these images, just leave me a comment on this post.  I’m hoping to get some video time in this week.

You’ll notice that there is a bit of texture to these images.  It really adds a watercolor look to the card.  I did stamp off the ink one time for each of the “solid” flower stamps to create a lighter color, before stamping the line-art stamp over it at full-strength.

If you’d like to add the Oh So Eclectic stamp set to your collection, you’ll find a complete list of supplies at the end of this post.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I combined the color challenge with the Mojo Monday Sketch to create this cute birthday card.  The full card measures 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  When I mail this size of a card, I simply add a piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ to my standard envelope.  Unless there is a lot of bulk, this will save you on postage.

I created my own background paper by 2-step stamping the floral images from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set in Peekaboo Peach and Bermuda Bay inks.  For the first image, I stamped off.  Then the detailed image, I stamped at full strength.  The greeting was stamped in Basic Black archival ink, then die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  You’ll also see a new ribbon:  the 3/8″ mini chevron ribbon in Bermuda Bay.  I love the casual feel of it!

Now that the Annual Catalog is LIVE, I’ll be adding recipes for each card at the end of my posts.  There are certainly a lot of new items in this catalog, but I highly recommend the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  It is definitely one of my favorites!
