Eclectic Paperie


Aaaack what a night. I've had chaos going on around me; the last hour has been crazy. I got home, changed my clothes, and went face-first into a series of catastrophes, all within a 15 minute time frame. The lawn mower died, my cell phone died, the timer for the laundry I was doing went off, and the smelly-cat had problems in the litter box. Lets just say the chicken I fed him at lunch did not go over well.


I'm amazed that I got these cards made tonite. They are lacking in quality but what can I say, I was trying to do 4 things at once. I did come up with a few fun tips. These Prima 'bubble' flowers are large enough that you can take the flower centers from the create-a-flower set and stamp them in the middle. If you look closely under the glitter, I've created centers with ink on top of the flowers.



The other fun thing is the asymmetrical flower on the card to the right. I screwed up and didn't cut the flower image straight, so it's top heavy. I think on my next batch of cards I may exaggerate it more, and make the top wider than the bottom. We'll see how it turns out! Yippie for new flower stamps!

Everything is from Eclectic Paperie: Paper by Paper Salon, "Pristine" collection, stamps by Paper Salon, Create-a-flower.

Both are great. Really love the one with stripes. That striped border looks great with the flowers. Wonderful layout.
