When I saw this stamp set in the new annual catalogue I thought it was so whimsical and I loved that, so of course it got added to my list of ‘must haves’.
As well as the cake I’ve used on these cards there’s also some presents that I’m keen to use, and a sprig of leaves which is lovely too. It’s the kind of stamp set that you could easily miss in the catalogue, but is actually very useful once you have it.
I made another card the same but different:
I used the Layered Leaves dynamic textured embossing folder on the pink card – I’ve been using it a lot. It has different layers to it which make it look great.
I also used one of the roses from the set on the pink card and fussy cut it to add it to the cake.
This is what Stampin’ Up! did with the same stamp set :
When I first saw the Oh So Eclectic set and bundle in the new cataglogue, I thought it was OK, but there were other things I liked more. Then I began to see other demos’ examples and thought I might have to have it after all.
I’m so glad I bought the bundle – 10% discount if you buy the stamp set and thinlits together – I love it! Not just the stamp set, but the thinlits too. There are three thinlits in the dies that emboss rather than cutting which is new for Stampin’ Up! I haven’t used those thinlits yet, but I will do in the near future.
For these cards I used the flowers and leaves, and the geometric die behind which I put some of the fabulous Wood Textures paper stack. I like that the flowers are not precise, they don’t fit and layer precisely which is great.
I’ve used Peekaboo Peach, Dapper Denim, Old Olive and Berry Burst inks which really make the cards pop.
Stampin’ Up! have a video showing how to make good use of the bundle:
By contrast the next post from me has a stamp set that I loved as soon as I saw it – the whimsical nature of it appealed to me.
Recently I made some cards using the Wood Words stamp set to send out to demonstrators around the world.
I wanted to use the new In Colors, and Crumb Cake snuck in there too! There’s a lovely flower stamp in the Wood Words set that I’ve used here. I heat embossed the cards in white and added the sentiment (which comes from the Lift Me Up stamp set).
I’m really pleased with the way they turned out – although I liked the matching framelits with the crate when I saw them in the catalogue, I hadn’t really considered using the stamp set on its own. The hears is also from the same set, and I added some linen thread to finish it off.
This stamp set is avaialable as a bundle with the framelits for a 10% discount.
