New Catalog Sneak Peek with Oh So Eclectic!

Last Saturday I spent the day in downtown Minneapolis with my mother, her downline, my mother-in-law and my ADT friend Tanya (along with 750+) demonstrators for Stampin' Up!'s OnStage convention.  We had a blast!  We were able to get our hands on the new upcoming catalog, see many new products and demonstrations, make a few cards and of course - win some new stamps!!

Since my mother and her downline were able to stay an extra 3 days, we stamped a few times to ink up each other's new sets.  Here is one that my mom's downline Traci won.  (My MIL also won it, so I will be inking her copy up some more this week!)  The set is called Oh So Eclectic.  If you've seen a glimpse at the catalog cover, you might recognize the set.  It's pretty and I'm looking forward to making some more samples.

For the background I used Lemon Lime Twist (one of the new in-colors!), Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo.  I loved the look of the background and hesitated before adding the stamps.  I think it turned out great though.

This set does have a coordinating framelits set, but this was simple enough to fussy cut.
You may notice 2 new ribbons - one is the Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon and the other is Gold MINI sequin trim!  LOVE IT!

Here's a closer look at the watercolor background.  Tanya Boser from the Artisan Team stayed at my house and gave us all a technique class on how to get this look.  Thanks Tanya!

So there's a little sneak peek at a new set coming out.  I would love to hear what you think about the set and the new Lemon Lime Twist color!  I personally love it and didn't think I would even like it!

Have a wonderful Easter!



  1. Love it! I can't wait to get that set :) Can you share the technique to do the background? I can never get mine to turn out so nicely! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Such a Beautiful Card and you have captured that new set perfectly on it.. Kim x
