Stampin' Addicts New Catalog Blog Hop: Kinda Eclectic
OH, yeah! New catalog time! A bunch of us from Stampin' Addicts would like to highlight a few of the new sets and products from this catalog for you and give you some ideas on how to use them :) The hop is set up in a loop and you can start anywhere, but if you get lost you can always get reoriented here. You can also share your thoughts and chat with the blog owners on the chat thread!

If you are following the hop in order, you just came from Yapha Mason's blog where she featured Hot Diggity-Dog. Fun projects, right! I am stop #7 and I am featuring Kinda Eclectic. As soon as I saw it in the new catalog, I knew I had to have it!

How about a little ombre effect with the distressed dots stamp! I inked up once with Lost Lagoon and just kept stamping. I did have to breathe on the stamp for the last couple of impressions, but I think it worked out well :) And now I see that my middle Candy dot is crooked. I will have to fix that! And Friday Mashup! challenges us this Friday to make a card with a word bubble!

  • Ink: Lost Lagoon, Sahara Sand, Early Espresso
  • Paper: Sahara Sand, Lost Lagoon, Whisper White
  • Other: Big Shot with Project Life Cards and Labels framelits and Word Bubble framelits, Hello Honey ribbon, Candy Dots, Signo white gel pen , Dimensionals
I used a Mojo Monday sketch for this card. I was not lovin it at first, but It finally pulled together and now I am trying to figure out who I can send it to!

Tanya, love what you did with the Eclectic set. I really like the white lines around the border with the word bubble card. And your other card is fantastic as well. TFS with the Friday Mashup this week!

Wow! Great set of cards. I've had my eye on that wet, now I have to get it. lol Great job!

Great job showing off this set, Tanya!

Those are all brilliant. The designs are and the layouts are eye-catching. It's just about right to have those in as many platforms as possible, especially in online social media sites, where they can generate and find new reach. Good luck!

Wow! Great uses of the collage stamp set! When the catalogue came out I looked at that set and had no idea what I would do with it. Now that I see what you have created I am starting to get ideas. Great job!!!
