Creation Station Blog Hop #8 - Kinda Eclectic

Sunday, August 17, 2014


The Kinda Eclectic stamp set was one of those that really jumped out at me when I first browsed the new 2014/15 annual catalogue earlier this year.  I'm so glad for the excuse to play with it for this round of the Creation Station Blog Hop!  I set myself the extra challenge to also play with the brand new green in-colour, Mossy Meadow.  In this first project, I've combined this tone with greys and purples.


Notice the spotty background?  I've taken a page from Teneale's book and pulled out my Stamp-a-ma-jig to create some interest in the background, repeating the dotty stamp several times using this great tool to help position the next set of rows exactly where I wanted them.

The sentiment is from the 'A Happy Hooray' set.  I wanted to create a type of 'winners ribbon' to pin to the top corner there and loved this circle sentiment as the centre piece for this.


For my second project I've gone with Mossy Meadow again but this time combining it with warmer tones of hello honey yellow and crumb cake light brown tones.


The sentiment this time is from the 'And many more...' set.

Be sure to visit my Creation Station team mates for more inspiration with this fabulous set.

  1. I think you've given me some encouragement to put my Mossy Meadow paper to use! I love the pairing of colors in both of your projects!
