Everything Eleanor Marigolds

Hmmm, maybe I'll go thru all the flowers making them with Everyday Eleanor stamp set!  Yesterday was Poppies, today is Marigolds using the new In Color Summer Starfruit!  One of my customers last night (hi Cindy!), thought Summer Starfruit and Basic Gray would look good together.  I have to agree!  I've always wanted a bedroom done in these colors!



I said it yesterday and I'll say it again today…I can't believe it took me this long to play with this set!  I've had it since January and Leadership!


The base card is Summer Starfruit and I layered on Basic Gray.  On the Whisper White layer, I stamped the medallion in Summer Starfruit.  I stamped the flowers twice each with Basic Gray on Summer Starfruit cardstock, then cut them out, crumpled them up and layered together with Stampin' Dimensionals for some depth.  They were placed on the Postage Punch of Basic Gray with Stampin' Dimensionals, too. Finally, I added tiny pearls to the centers and pearls on the medallion.  And I added a greeting from Petite Pairs in Basic Gray.  This is two cards in a row without ribbon!!!


WOOHOO!!!  My expedited order of NEW stuff just arrived, so I'm planning on playing with them ALL DAY LONG!  I can't wait!  I have several projects to work on for the next session of Create with Connie and Mary, including my PREVIEW tutorial coming soon!  Here are more details!

Again- Wow!- like I said for the card you posted before this – I would pass right by this set – not really sure why – but now you've peaked my interest!  I love, love, love how you've used it here!  You are always such an inspiration!
