Oh, So Eclectic

Hi Stampers,

I have two grown sons who live on opposite ends of the country from their dear old mom, so I send a lot of cards to them.  Today I'm sharing one that I created using something totally new to me - embossing paste!

I've had the embossing paste & tools in my craft room for a few weeks now...I have to admit that I was feeling a little intimidated about using them.  I shouldn't have's so easy!  And I love the results.  The diamond pattern on the background of this card is one of 4 designs you get in the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.

The stamps and die-cuts are from the Oh So Eclectic Bundle.  The colors are Early Espresso (card base), Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist, & Whisper White.  The sentiment on the banner is stamped in Versamark & heat embossed using White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  All of the die-cut pieces are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue except for the largest Pool Party flower, which is attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Three little sprigs of foliage cut from Gold Glimmer Paper make this card sparkle!  I don't usually make floral card designs for the men in my life, but I think these colors make this card work for the guys or gals!

I did some stamping on the inside but left space to write a mushy little love note from mom.  :)

I'm sending a book along with the card, so I made a matching bookmark.  "Love You" is part of the Bloomin' Love stamp set.  The bookmark is made from Thick Whisper White so it's nice & sturdy, and punched with the Tag Topper Punch.  The ribbon is Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon.

I love the watercolor look in the Oh So Eclectic stamp set.  I'll be using this bundle a lot - there are so many different ways to combine the stamps & die-cuts!
