4 little bits of kindness using Kinda Eclectic




I absolutely love Pinterest, its a great source of inspiration and if you are ever having one of those creativity blocks, you can search away and find lots of cards that you can CASE (copy and share everything). 


If you search for Color Throwdown in Pinterest, you will get lots of suggestions for colour combinations which usually consist of 3 - 4 colours. Why don't you try a combination today that you wouldn't normally go for?


I wanted to show you today how you can really mix up the colour combinations and layouts using this stamp set and I have 4 examples for you that could be packaged as a set of 4 as a gift.

I've used Blackberry Bliss, Melon Mambo and Smokey Slate for this card. I love this version and I just couldn't bring myself to add the glittery butterfly that I made as I think its perfect as it is.



   

This is a colour combination that I really like but haven't used very much - its Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride & Pear Pizazz.


The next version is very similar to a design by Michelle Last and uses Black Memento Ink, Crumb Cake & Sahara Sand. Click here to see Michelle's stunning version.




The final card uses Night of Navy and Pool Party ink. I also used Crumb Cake and Island Indigo for the card base and layer.




To make the glittery butterflies I stamped the image onto Whisper White cardstock. I used my versamark stamp pad directly over the image to ensure the surface area covering the butterfly was sticky. I then coated this area with heat and stick powder and heated it with my Heat Tool. Once this had glazed over I then covered the area again with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I used my heat gun again to set the glitter. To finish it off, I punched out the image using the Elegant Butterfly Punch and used Stampin’ Dimensionals® to pop the image up on the card.


I would love to see any designs you have come up with using this stamp set - please post a link to your pictures in the comments section.
