Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Naturally Eclectic Suite

Welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop.
This fine Sunday we are showcasing the absolutely gorgeous 'Naturally Eclectic Suite'. This Suite is something you can't miss, because it is featured on the front cover of the Annual Catalogue and it's just so lovely!


Come and take a look at the 'Naturally Eclectic Suite' in action.

This image is featured within the Annual Catalogue - isn't everything just divine?
The colours. The patterns. Oh, it's delightful!

First up is a shaker card, and matchy-matchy gift box. 
The shaker card has a gold diamond window from the 'Naturally Eclectic Card Overlays' pack. The gems were added; fussy cut from the 'Naturally Eclectic DSP'. And a handful of the 'Gold Mini Sequins' to add some bling within the window.
I have subtly watercoloured the 'Shimmery White' background.

How sweet is the Gift box? You can find the tutorial here.
I have wrapped the box with 'Emerald Envy Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon' and embellished with a tag using the diamond die-cut in 'Gold Foil'.

 I have created a floral frenzy atop another 'Naturally Eclectic Card Overlay' with golden leaves. Using the divine colours; 'Peekaboo Peach', 'Lemon Lime Twist' & 'Berry Burst' with 'Gold Foil' die-cut to create my card front.

And that 'Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon'! It's just so beautiful you really do need it in your ribbon stash.

Thankyou for taking the time to visit, and don't forget to keep on hopping to check out more 'Oh So Eclectic' lovliness. Next up is Kelly - who always has something fabulous to share, and all the blog links are posted below.
Have a wonderful Sunday. D x

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - CASE the Catalogue

Tonight we are having the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop, organised by my talented and lovely friend, Jessie Holton.
And we are 'CASEing the Catalogue'.
CASE = Copy And Share Everything


https://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=145297
 My 'CASE the Catalogue' creation is from page 93 of the Annual Stampin' Up!® Catalogue  2017-2018 using the 'Beautiful Bouquet Bundle'.

 I have pretty much CASEd everything, yet there are some subtle changes I have made.
I have changed up the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Square focal point and sentiment.
The bouquet is the same, however, I have added a few die-cut leaves to change it ever so slightly. And the only embellishment I have used is the 'Linen Thread' bow.

'I couldn't have picked a better friend than you'
All the beautifully die-cut flowers for a beautiful bouquet.
Colours: Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz & Pool Party.
This Bundle is truly gorgeous, and I bought it because of this inspiration from the Annual Catalogue.

Thankyou so much for hopping on by. Don't miss a thing and make sure you click on the links below to take you on a wonderful journey of CASEing the Catalogue. Next up is Ellen, and she has a fabulous creation for you to see. D x

Global Design Project - 'CASE the Designer' #gdp096

It's CASE the Designer time for the Global Design Project #gdp096, and we are CASEing the lovely Tanja Kolar from Germany.
CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit


I have similar elements to Tanja's creation, however, there are differences too. Let's see what I have created based on Tanja's beautiful Dragonfly card.

I swapped Tanja's Dragonfly for a 'Soft Sky' die-cut Butterfly. 
I have also used the 'Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies' as the frame and placed the 'Delightful Daisy DSP' underneath the Vellum.

I painted 'Clear Wink of Stella' onto the die-cut Butterfly and it leaves a lovely glimmery effect. And a touch of 'Silver Metallic Thread' behind the Butterfly for some pretty.
The 'Thanks' sentiment is from the 'Weather Together' stampset, with such a gorgeous font. 

These are all of the products I used for my Butterfly creation.
 'Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes' - why make 1 card, when you can make up to 20! You can change up the sentiment, DSP, Cardstock colour or keep them all the same. Such a great way to get a whole stack of cards done at once.

Thankyou for paying me a visit, and I hope you get the opportunity to join in with this Challenge. See you next time. D x
