Oh So Eclectic Birthday – #TTTC012

It’s that time of the week for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  If you haven’t yet played, I would urge you to give it a try.  The challenge board is packed with fun elements to really spark your creativity.  These are some of the easiest cards I create because most of the inspiration is already on the board!  Here is this week’s…..

I chose the bottom row across:  die cut, sentiment, floral

My card features the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and coordinating Eclectic Layers thinlits.  I mentioned earlier in the week that I bought this set because of one thinlit….the one I used on this card HERE.  However, after seeing so many pretty samples, I am sold on the entire bundle now.

Here’s the details

  • The card base is Pear Pizzazz card stock.
  • The patterned background is from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.  As you can see here, this is more than just a Christmas paper.  The patterns in this collection are super versatile.  I used another on this card HERE.

  • The center panel is Pear Pizzazz card stock measuring 4″ x 3″ with a mat of Whisper White card stock cut 1/8″ smaller.

  • The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder stamp set and is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.
  • It’s all in the details! A pretty, yet very simple, detail is the Berry Burst 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon wrapped around the sentiment layer with a bow added.
  • The blooms are stamped in Berry Burst ink using the Oh So Eclectic stamp set.  Two step stamping created the color variation.  I first stamped off once for the main flower and then at full ink for the detailed stamp.
  • The leaves were created using a pattern from the Color Theory Designer Paper Stack and punched with the new Leaf punch that will be available in the Holiday Catalog on Sept. 1.
  • The flowers are arranged and layered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • The inside sentiment is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set.
  • A little added Designer Series Paper with a thin strip of Berry Burst card stock coordinates so nicely with the outside of the card.
  • And to tie the whole card together, the envelope flap is embellished with more Designer Series Paper.
