Naturally Eclectic Beauty

Naturally Eclectic, Oh So Eclectic, Stitched Shapes, BJ Peters, Stampin' Up!

Oh boy – I think I need to hide the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and the bundled Eclectic Layers Thinlts – I’m feeling VERY addicted to them!  But, isn’t this card GORGEOUS!   Honestly, if I haven’t convinced you to check out the Naturally Eclectic product suite yet – you are late to the party!   I’ve done 2 videos. .. this one uses a technique I did on this card.  And this one has been very popular on Pinterest.

As you can see, I pulled the colors for this card right out the of Naturally Eclectic designer series paper.  I love how the Fresh Fig ribbon creates some horizontal interest while the main focal point still stands out.

As you can see, I used the template I created previously – did you check that video?   Then I just added the Fresh Fig flower and Lemon Lime Twist leaves.  The tone on tone Fresh Fig flower is perfect!!!!  Truly I love how this stamp has some variegation.

If I’ve peaked your interest. . . you can find this product suite on page 132 and 133 in the Stampin’ Up! catalog.  Be sure and use a Hostess Code when you order for a free gift!

Creative Inking Blog Hop – Favorite New Bundle

Stampin' Up!, Blog Hop, BJ Peters, Stampin BJ

Welcome to this month’s Creative Inking Blog Hop featuring our favorite bundles from the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  My customers tell me they love purchasing Stampin’ Up!’s bundles – not just for the 10% savings but for the coordination and additional value they bring.

I am showcasing the Oh So Eclectic Bundle from the Naturally Eclectic product suite.  This bundle includes the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Oh So Eclectic, Eclectic Layers Thinlits

I love that this bundle includes a background thinlit!  The background thinlit just highlights the beauty of the stamps and other thinlits.  The unique feature of this flower in this stamp set is that it is created to give you areas of deeper color and contrasting areas of lighter color.  When you add the detailing stamp over the top, you have a flower that just pops off the page!

The texture on this card is amazing and it just wants to make you touch it.  The background, multi-colored flower and textured leaves together create the “I want to touch it” look.

I found a little trick to line up the flower base with the detailed top image.  Take a look. . . .

 

Be sure and check out the Naturally Eclectic Product Suite on page 132 and 133!

Now, head on through the rest of the blog hop and enjoy everyone’s favorite bundles!

Colorful Seasons at the Beach

Stampin' UP!, Colorful Seasons, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, BJ Peters, High Tide

I live in Minnesota and it’s summer time here.   We Minnesotans try to take full advantage of our summer months.  And as you know, I have an avid fisherman husband who believes that any good day involves some kind of fishing!

For this card I combined a couple of favorites – the High Tide stamp set which carried over from the Occasions 2017  catalog and the Colorful Seasons bundle featured in the new annual catalog.  They go together perfectly!

I used the Layering Ovals framelits to create the oval opening that I stamped through to get the water and sky image.  It’s a masking technique and if you haven’t ever tried it, you should.  I did a similar technique on this video.

Can you just imagine yourself sitting in that chair relaxing listening to the waves and birds while enjoying the sunshine?   “Just Breathe” is a perfect sentiment for that feeling of warmth, sunshine, waves, sand and water!  Man, I could go for some of that right now!

Oh So Eclectic Love

The Naturally Eclectic Product Suite on pages 132 and 133 caught my eye early on.   I think it was the beautiful jewel tone colors in the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series paper.

Stampin' Up!, Oh So Eclectic, Naturally Eclectic

What a beauty this card turned out to be.  The 3″ x 1/2″ strips of the Naturally Eclectic designer series paper highlighted by the Emerald Envy 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon just pop off the card!   Speaking of the cardbase, the Lemon Lime Twist was the perfect color choice!  I love the texture accent of the Layered Leaves dynamic textured embossing folder.

Stampin' Up!, Oh So Eclectic, Naturally Eclectic

This product suite comes with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.   These dies have a unique feature – the flower pieces nestle together to create the 2 layered look.  Love that feature allowing you to use just 1 flower image or use the 2 together.

While this product suite features a unique color palette, this card certainly highlights superbly several of the colors in the suite!

 

Lots of Love

Yippee!! if you were in the first group of designer series paper and In Color shares, your packages of yumminess are in the mail!  While I was prepping the shares, I found that I LOVED the Whole Lot of Lovely designer series paper!

Lots of Love, Whole Lot of Lovely, BJ Peters, Stampin' BJ

This rich and colorful DSP really caught my eye.  It coordinates well with the Whole Lot of Lovely product suite on page 86 and 87 in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.   I used the Lots of Love stamp set to create the flower and leaves which highlight the greeting.

Check out the Pool Party cardstock that has been texturized with the Layered Leaves dynamic textured embossing folder.  I really like the dynamic folder and the deep texture it creates.

Stay tuned for more loveliness from this product suite!

Exciting Delivery!

I’m excited to announce that my daughter Mandy and I will be heading to Thailand on an all expenses paid trip compliments of Stampin’ Up!  Our travel documents arrived this week!

Stampin’ Up! always treats us well and our travel documents are always packaged beautifully!   This time was no exception!   The elephant luggage tags are adorable!!!   Possibly the cutest of my 13 trips ever!

Stampin’ Up! always pays for 2 people and Jim can’t go this time because of prior commitments – fishing related of course! So, Mandy and I will enjoy this adventure!   I think it will be absolutely amazing – minus the long flights of course!

I would be remiss if I didn’t say Thank you to my wonderful customers and team for this amazing opportunity!  I am sooooo blessed!  I love sharing my passion of crafting with you!  THANK YOU everyone!   #extremelyblessed!
