Stampin’ Up! Eclectic Expressions Sneak Peek

I used two products from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration 2018 second release to create my cards to share with you today.  The sentiment is from the Eclectic Expressions stamp set and I used a little bit of the Springtime Foil Specialty DSP for the squares.

My card design was inspired by the Reverse Confetti Sketch #57.

I started by sprinkling Brilliant Red and Prussian Blue Brusho Colour Crystals on two panels of Glossy White Card Stock.  I spritzed the panels with water and a Stampin’ Spritzer and then set the panels aside to dry.

Once the panels were dry, I stamped the sentiment from the Eclectic Expressions stamp set (Sale-a-bration item available Feb 16) on the panels in VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with Gold (red panel) and Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder (blue panel) and then heat embossed them.

I adhered the Glossy Card Stock panels to panels of Gold and Copper Foil Sheets with SNAIL and then to Thick Whisper White card bases with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut panels from the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP (Sale-a-bration item available Feb 16) with one of the dies from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and then adhered them with SNAIL and Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card fronts.

I stamped the dot image from the Eclectic Expressions stamp set in Pacific Point ink (Real Red inside the Brilliant Red card) across a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.
