Touches of Texture searching for art. 

Sometimes I don’t feel so inclined to use any great layers or embellishments ie bling to make a card. Instead I just have a need to dig for my inner artist and just use inks and paper. This is done with a Whisper White sheet of card stock and sponged with Berry Blast, Tranquil Tide, and Lemon Lime Twist inks as well as Momento Tuxedo Black ink on a sponge dauber for the edges as well as to stamp all the images. Touches of Texture was my main stamp set but hello came from the Eastern Palace stamp set. It is matted in Berry Blast and Basic Black. 

Colourful Seasons with Repurposed Move Me Framlits 

I repurposed the Move me framlits on this Colourful Seasons Bundle card and did it in Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo and Chocolate Chip as the colours along with gold foil paper. I saw this weaving idea on Pinterest but always in blue on silver for Christmas but thought it a nice warm thought to try Calypso Coral with gold. And Colourful Seasons just seemed perfect to go with it. 

Climbing Orchids on Burlap 

I got the burlap background stamp and wanted to use it and my Climbing Orchids bundle just fit the bill for what to put on top of it. Card Stock colours are Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Sweet Sugarplum, and Rich Razzleberry. Ink colours are Crumb Cake, Old Olive, and Rich Razzleberry. I’ve really got to get on with my Christmas Cards but the holiday catalog is not too far away now. 

Naturally Eclectic card

Naturally Eclectic DSP and Eclectic Layers overlays on this one. I couldn’t find the sentiment I wanted so I used the Labeler Alphabet to make it myself. I also used Night of Navy card stock and ink as well as Soft Sky and Tranquil Tide card stock finishing with 1/2″ Finely woven ribbon in Tranquil Tide and a mini gift bow in silver.

Oh So Eclectic 

I’m truly in love with the Oh So Eclectic suite!!! This one uses the works! I’ve used the stamps, dies, DSP and overlays for this as well as Berry Blast, Peekaboo Peach and Lemon Lime Twist ink some which I applied with my blender pens. Night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide are the card stocks used finally its embellished with Rhinestone jewels and an Itty Bitty Bow. I’m planning some upcoming videos including how to cut these edge decorated overlays without cutting off the edge and just in case any newbie Stampin Up stampers might peek in I’m going to do a quick tutorial on just how do you open those crazy ink pads and just why they are actually beautifully designed once you actually can figure them out! I know I struggled with my first ones.
