SUO Challenge #101


Kinda Eclectic




I really am in love with the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set and for this card I paired it with another of my favorite stamp sets called Everything Elanor.  One of my favorite techniques is to stamp one image then overlap a few other stamps while stamping off the ink then I love to overlay various elements for a textured elemental look.  This weeks theme is about Bows, Bows & Bows so I really wanted my bow to be dramatic and a focal point of the card.  The Seam Binding is another of my favorite products and I just LOVE the new colors that are available especially this Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon.

SunnyGirlScraps Tips & Tricks:

  • Don't be afraid to expirement with Bold, Fun colors as seen in this card example.
  • A great way to create interest is to overlap stamped images.
  • Use the Seam Binding Ribbon for unique texture.  In this example, I crumpled up the Seam Binding Ribbon, wrapped it several times then attached the Antique Brad to create a multi-layered bow.
