The title of this post should be Oh So Eclectic bundle, why did it take me so long to order you? I have been on the fence about this bundle. I wanted the thinlit dies especially the large die with the diamond shapes. I was ambivalent about the stamp set and I think I even told someone that I wasn't going to order it. I should know by now never to say that and instead say I am not going to order it today. Finally, I decided to order the bundle and I am SO happy that I did. I just love the big borderish stamp and now that I understand how the dies and stamps work I am a big fan. Here is the first thing that I made using the bundle.
I am so happy how this turned out. Don't you love the watercolor look of the leaves and flowers? That is how the stamp was made, all I had to do is ink it up and stamp! Here's a little tip on how to cut out the flower outlines.
Isn't that so easy? I will tell you that it took me a few flowers before I realized that I could do this, simply put the detail thinlit inside of the larger flower and run them through the Big Shot together! When you are done you have a perfect outline, so much easier than doing them seperately. The smaller flower also can be cut the same way.
Since the Oh So Eclectic bundle is brand new to me so I thought I would play along with the SUO Challenge #SUO179. The theme appropriately is New Fun from Stampin' Up! and this new bundle definitely qualifies.
Did you notice that this is the only stamp set I used to make this card? This set not only has great images but 4 sentiments too! One more thing about the dies. There are 3 dies that do not cut out an image but instead emboss. I love this twist. I think this will make really fun textured backgrounds. I will try it out and will of course share it when I do.
