Naturally Eclectic Use Your Scraps Card using Stampin Up Products.

Hello Everyone,

So, I'm on a Mission!!! As we  only have 9 days left of the current catalogue I'm trying to use all my DSP and stamp sets that will be retiring.

Today's card combines the use of scraps and helps how off the wonderful So Eclectic DSP, which coordinates with the stamp set I used yesterday. I did want to mix it up and use a stamp from Five for All, a great stamp set that which is one the retiring list as well.

Using pool party for the card base, I layered up several pieces of card stock with coordinating pieces of DSP. Then took the fresh fig ink and stamped the sentiment from the five for all on a scrap of whisper white, which fit snuggly into one of my layered pieces.

Once I decided where to place my pieces, I used both snail and dimensionals to add some depth.

I added a layer of whisper white to the inside, and inked up the happy birthday sentiment in the fresh fig again,and stamped that in the middle.

Told you it was easy peasy!! Below is a list of the measurements I used to create the card, but you can tailor yours to suit whatever size scraps you have.


Naturally Eclectic DSP
1pc - 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
1pc - 2 5/8" x 2"
1pc - 3 5/8" x 3/4"

Lemon Lime Twist
1pc - 2" x 4 1/8"
1pc - 3 x 2 1/8"

Whisper White
1pc - 2 3/4" x 1 7/8"
1pc - 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"

Night of Navy
1pc - 3 7/8" x 1"

I hope you all had a brilliant weekend... but it goes by so so quick... I can't believe it is Monday already!!

Today's project is a simple card, to help show off the beautiful new in colors for 2018-2020. I think this collection has to be my favourite yet. They are so bold and bright and beautiful!!!

Take a piece of whisper white that measure 5 5/8" x 3 7/8" and randomly stamp the outline flower image from the So Eclectic Stamp Set to create your own DSP. Stick this down to an Old Olive card base and you're half way there.

Onto a scrap of whisper white stamp out the embellished outline from the  LAbel Me Pretty stamp set in Call Me Clover and cut out using the Pretty Label punch. Bring in the thanks a bunch from Beautiful Bouquet and stamp that into the centre using Blueberry Bushel. Ink the edges with old olive and place on dimensionals. Before adding this to the card add a few loops of gold metallic thread to the back.

Real Red Daisy Delight Quick & Easy Thank You Card Using Stampin Up Products

Hey Everyone,

Its a beautiful Saturday here again and I have a few hours pencilled in for crafty, but after lunch I have housework and some gardening to do... then I'm thinking if we get all our jobs done , we can have a BBQ for tea and a few cheeky drinks in the sun.

Todays project is super quick and easy to make, which little effort and product you can create a beautiful Thank you card.

If I'm honest I don't use real red very much, so I challenged myself. I took out a sheet of Real Red cardstock and my ink pad and made myself use it! I'm so glad I did as I love the results.

Take a piece of scrap paper and stamp the daisy image twice in real red and cut out using the Daisy punch. Add a centre to one of the flower with Daffodil Delight. Taking your bone folder, very gently curl the edges to give the flower dimension. Taking the flower with the centre, add a glue dot and adhere to the other flower, make sure you offset them so you end up with a full flower.

Real red cardstock measuring 4 1/8" x 11 3/4 scored a 5 7/8" creates the card base, layer a piece of whisper white which is 1/4" smaller on both sides to the front and on the inside. On a scrap of real red, stamp the tiny three flower image in a long line so it will measure 5 5/8" in length. Trim it down so that there is a small edging of red. place this onto the card to the right hand side.

Ink up the thank you sentiment from the same stamp set a position it towards the bottom. Come in with the leaf stamp and old olive and stamp three leaves just above half way up. Put a dimensional on the back of you flower and stick to the card over the leaves, making sure that they show through.

Here's a list of the products I used, you can click on the links to head over to my online store - don't forget until the end of May you can save 10% with the delightful daisy bundle! Both the stamps and punch will carry over into the new catalogue, but available seperately. 
Thank you very much for stopping by today

See you soon
