Stampin Friends Blog Hop Oh So Eclectic
For my base, I used Calypso Coral layered with Flirty Flamingo.
Then, I stamped the Marbled background in Flirty Flamingo and
sprinkled on some gold embossing powder for texture.
To stamp the flowers, I used the Stamparatus.
To make it even easier for the next step, I moved the plate over one hinge slot for each flower.
Then, I lined up the detail stamp and moved the plate back the other direction for each flower.
Easy super duper peasy!!
I stamped the Oh So Eclectic flowers in Calypso Coral.
Then, I stamped the detail in Versamark and heat embossed in gold.
Next, I die cut the flowers, Vellum leaves and Gold Glimmer Paper flowers
using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.
As you can see, I left some of the detail pieces of the Gold Glimmer Paper die cuts in place.
To add a final note of texture, I tucked in pieces of Gold 1/8″ Ribbon.
Stampin Friends Blog Hop Oh So Eclectic Project 2
For my second project, I created a favor or treat holder.
After punching and scoring the Calypso Coral strip, I die cut the flower.
Then, I cut a second flower from Gold Glimmer Paper and inlaid it.
To hold it in place, I added a piece of Window Sheet on the inside.
Next, I cut the Vellum accents and added sequins.
Using Teeny Tiny Wishes, I stamped the sentiment.
Inside, I added a little platform that is punched so it will hold a Lindt truffle ball.
Then, I tied the favor closed with Gold 1/8″ Ribbon.
