Oh So Eclectic Bundle


Florals work for so many occasions! This bundle is crisp and UNIQUE! When I build a floral design, I pop up the central flower, then "tuck" the other elements around it in an asymmetrical layout!


This is the NEW 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. It makes a GREAT "messy bow" and easily flattens for mailing. It's FUN!


These colors are: NEW Powder Pink, NEW Lemon Lime Twist, New Berry Burst, Old Olive and Gold Foil Paper.

My NEXT post will use the same Bundle in an entirely different look! Stop back.

I enjoy creating 3X6" cards and coordinating envelopes. YES, this is a mailable size. These cards feature the NEW Lots of Love Stamp Set and Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. The square layers are made with the Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372.


You can see a little shine on the NEW Black 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon - so pretty. I wanted to repeat the black center of the flowers in the designer paper, so I punched a 1/2" Black Circle for the focal flower.

How to Make a Picket Fence using Colorful Seasons Bundle



The LITTLE WHITE PICKET FENCE!! You can create it using the Adirondack Chair thinlit. First, stamp a bush on the left and tree on the right. Next, start in the middle, centering 3 WHITE Adirondack Chair die cuts along the bottom edge of your card, lining up the "arm rests" with the bottom edge of the card stock. Next, place 4 WHITE Classic Label Punch "posts" between the chairs. Position and attached. Flip the card over to cut off the excess dies. VIOLA!!


The NEW Pretty Label Punch makes a perfect cloud. I LOVE this sweet summer card!!

You must TRY IT!!

Such a fun Gate Card with a little marker coloring!
