Oh So Eclectic

Oh So Eclectic

Hello Friends,

What's your style?  Mine would definitely be eclectic.  Don't box me in.  I love to shake up conventions and bridge the gap between other looks.   So when I saw the Oh So Eclectic Bundle, I knew that I just had to have it.  Just look at all the fun elements.  A wide array of cool dies and oodles of stamps.  Just look at those patterns on the leaves.

What is Eclectic?

Eclectic reshuffles the rule book.  It mixes and matches old and new.  It gives you the freedom to fill spaces with things that you love and unique things that strike your fancy.

Here's Some Tips To Make Eclectic Look Good

These tips can apply to card making and home decorating

Hint: Go for contrast, not chaos.

Find common ground.  For my card it was my soothing color palette of blues, neutrals and just a hint of soft yellow.

Pick your must haves and work out from there.

Anchor it or have a focal point.  For today's card, I used random elements, but they work together in a unifying theme.  Don't be afraid to move things around until you find balance.


Card Inspiration

Inspiration is all around us.  The pillows on my sofa served as inspiration for today's card.

Daisy Delight Birthday Card


 Hello Friends,

Believe it or not, today's handmade card can be put together in about 10 minutes.  It's just stamping and punching with just a pinch of accessories.  The Daisy Delight stamp set and coordinating Daisy punch make it that easy.

Baker's Man Birthday Card

Hello Friends,

The Baker's waiting.  Who's having a Birthday?  If you like quick and easy cards, you'll like this card and there's even a surprise inside.  It's made with the Birthday Delivery Bundle which includes a coordinating stamp set, dies and designer paper.   The little Baker's Man reminds me of the Pat-a-Cake, Pat-a-Cake, Baker's Man Rhyme.
