CCMC465 Oh So Eclectic

It’s Thursday…time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  We have a fun color challenge using one of the new In Colors for you to try this week!


Oh So Eclectic has some random shapes and images in the Bundle, but I love the star shaped cutout thinlit.  I decided to further cut it out from the surrounding cardstock and use it as a little accent on my card.



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Tranquil Tide cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • The diamond shape background accent piece was cut from Night of Navy cardstock and added to the front.
  • The little flower image from Oh So Eclectic was stamped several times with Tranquil Tide Ink in the background on a diagonal.
  • The two flowers were stamped with Night of Navy Ink on Peekaboo Peach, then cut with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  The centers were sponged with Peekaboo Peach Ink for a little shading.  They were popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Three leaves were stamped with Tranquil Tide Ink and cut with the Thinlits, then tucked and adhered under the flowers.
  • A bow was made from Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon and added with Mini Glue Dots.
  • The Missing You greeting from Oh So Eclectic was stamped with Night of Navy Ink on scrap Whisper White, trimmed and tucked under the flower on the front.


I love this little bouquet of flowers!  Check out the fun with the rest of the Challenge Team over on Create with Connie and Mary this week! Then play along!  And…we are now taking signups for our JULY MINI SESSION!  Don’t miss out!
