Pretty Label Me Pretty

Stampin' Up!, BJ PEters, Whole Lot of Lovely, Label Me Pretty

Do you need a soft, feminine birthday card?   I have the answer!   This lovely card is VERY simple but I think you’ll agree that it is stunning!   The Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series paper is the key to this card. . . the Lovely papers in this pack strike me as a little unique in the patterns and colors.

I love that there are 2 complimentary designs in the same Powder Pink and Whisper White color scheme.  This layout is simple and easy to replicate.   You can do it!

Stampin' UP!, Whole Lot of Lovely, BJ Peters

Check these papers out!   I truly love the unique patterns and prints.  Did you see what I did with the Peach Patterned paper here?  Hint: – it’s so sweet!

Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Stampin BJ, Label Me Pretty, Whole Lot of Lovely

I added the greeting from the Label Me Pretty stamp set.  I softened it by stamping the outline in Basic Gray and then colored selectively with the Powder Pink Stampin’ Write marker.  I had the greeting stand out by adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.

The Label Me Pretty stamp set comes bundled with the Pretty Label punch.  Remember when you purchase as a bundle, you get a 10% savings!  Got to love a deal!

Graceful Garden

One of the stamp sets that caught my eye in the new catalog is called Graceful Garden.   It was the large flower that really caught my eye.

Graceful Garden, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Stampin BJ

This stamp set has the great feature of having the texture and shading built right into the stamp.  This feature then creates the illusion that I am a better creator and artist than what I really am – love that!   For this card, I inked up the top part of the stamp in Berry Burst ink and the leaf part of the stamp in Old Olive ink.  Then I used the Powder Pink and Old Olive Stampin’ Write markers to simply color in the flower and leaves.  Easy Peasy!

I wish that you could feel this card because of the ribbon.  When I made my bow from the 5/8″ Berry Burst Crinkled Seam binding, I had long tails that I needed to trim. . . but I saw the beautiful texture and the gorgeous soft feel.  Then I made a decision that I needed to put the bow up higher on the card and leave the beautiful long tails.

Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Graceful Garden, Stampin BJ

Do you see what I mean with the flower shading?  This is on page 57 in the Stampin’ Up! catalog.  It is shown with that gorgeous Petal Garden Designer Series Paper pack that I featured here.

As always, I would love it if you let me know what you think and most of all, I appreciate your orders and your business!

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!
