I used the Stampin’ Up! Eclectic Expressions stamp set to create my card for the Stamp Ink Paper color challenge this week.
Here are the colors for Stamp Ink Paper #142. Hope that you’ll stop by and play along with the challenge too!
My card design was inspired by My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge 376.
I started by stamping the images from the Eclectic Expressions stamp set (Sale-a-bration item) in Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Smoky Slate and Basic Gray inks across a Whisper White card stock panel. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Bermuda Bay card stock with SNAIL and then to a Smoky Slate card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered a strip of the Bubbles & Fizz DSP (Sale-a-bration item) across the front of the card with SNAIL and then stamped the sentiment from the Eclectic Expressions stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink on a panel of Smoky Slate card stock. I cut around the sentiment with a Stitched Shapes Framelits Die and then adhered the die cut to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I cut the butterfly from Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper (Sale-a-bration item and regular catalog item) with the Move Me Thinlits Dies and then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the Smoky Slate oval to finish the card front.
I stamped the images from the Eclectic Expressions stamp set in Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Smoky Slate and Basic Gray inks across a Whisper White card stock panel to finish the inside of the card.
