Kinda Eclectic

I like a couple things…I like bright happy rainbow colors and I like stamping images in colors that are not always the ‘natural’ color for that image.

Take leaves for example…I don’t always feel like I have to keep leaves in the greens or even pretty fall colors.  I think leaves can be any color in the rainbow and I decided to do that with the really cool leaf image in the Kinda Eclectic set.  One of the best things about this card is just how quick and easy it is!

Here’s the details…

  • Peek-a-boo Peach – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Shimmery White – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 (okay used this because didn’t notice that it was the Shimmery White…you can use regular Whisper White), stamp leaf image in Flirty Flamingo, Peek-a-boo Peach, So Saffron, Cucumber Crush, Pool Party, greeting in Memento Black and little dots (from Cool Treats set) in Smoky Slate
  • Tide piece of Flirty Flamingo around top, add panel to card front

Yep…that about covers it, quick, bright, and happy!

Set(s): Kinda Eclectic, Tin of Cards, Cool Treats
Paper: Shimmery White, Peek-a-boo Peach
Ink: Memento Black, Smoky Slate, Flirty Flamingo, Peek-a-boo Peach, So Saffron, Cucumber Crush, Pool Party
Other: Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!
