My new favourite Stampin' Up set!

Okay. Let's introduce you to my new all-time favourite stamp set from Stampin' Up! We need a drum roll here... and perhaps some trumpets as well! Heck, let's get a whole brass band out!

Yes, it's Kinda Eclectic and oh my goodness, you really do need this set right now! This card was made by stamping the sun in So Saffron ink, adding Old Olive leaves and layering with Crushed Curry background dots. Collage style has never been so easy!

The sentiment from Four You was stamped in Island Indigo to add a bit of an accent colour and underlined with Old Olive bakers twine tied in a simple bow. TIP: I 'nibbled' the edges of my panel with the ornament punch in the Merry Minis pack to make a recess for my bakers twine to sit neatly in.

Look how dynamic that sunburst is! And those beautiful leaves - you know what a weakness I have for leaves!

I can tell you right now that there will be many, many more projects made with this amazing set and it goes straight to the top of my Highly Recommended list. Now, just imagine what you could make with it!

I've probably told you before that brass bands make me cry - and bagpipes too. I don't know why. Maybe it's the sound of nostalgia? Perhaps it's the sight of grown men being cooperative with each other?! Whatever the reason, it's embarrassing at parade season when I always have to retire to the back and snivel into a hanky!

See you tomorrow.

  9. You are right, this is an awesome set. Our National Anthem is the Star Spangled Banner and I tear up each and every time I hear it or see it on TV. They play a recording at my grandsons baseball games and I cry every time! I think that's sweet that you do that for the brass bands and bagpipes.

  10. A stunning card Vicky, I love that pop of blue. Xx

  11. Another beautiful card, Vicky. Thanks so much for your comment on my award winner :)
