eclectic Friend

Good Morning and TGIF!!! I have the honor of being this week's "eclectic Friend" for Eclectic Paperie...YIPPEE!!! I had the pleasure of meeting and spending the day with Daisy and Joy (the owners of eP) at CHA Chicago in 2007. WHAT A BLAST!!! Daisy and Joy are two of the sweetest and most generous people you will ever meet. Their store is STOCKED with all the latest paper crafting goodies. They have all the supplies you need (and want) and have super quick shipping. You can check out all of their "Brand Spankin' New" products here. You can also sign up for their newsletter (if you haven't done so already) on the front page of their site down on the left hand side. With Halloween right around the corner, I thought I would post something "halloweeny" today using products you can find at Eclectic Paperie. The card uses the products from the Imaginisce Hallowhimsy Collection. I stamped the haunted house on Whisper White using Palette Noir ink. I colored it in with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with Gamsol and a stump. I sponged around the image with Pumpkin Pie ink and added some StarDust Stickles to the windows. The cardstock colors are Bazzill Blackbird, Bazzill Sweet Lacy, and Bazzill Carrot Cake which is embossed with the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder. I used the Lollipop Lizzy and Pixie Sticks patterned paper and added some black and white gingham ribbon to finish it off. I also decorated the inside of the card with the Imaginisce Happy Halloween sentiment and a piece of patterned paper. To go along with the card, I made a cute little 2-5-7-10 treat box using this tutorial from SCS; super easy!!!

Thank you so much Daisy and Joy for making me this week's eclectic Friend; what an honor!!!

And, thank you all for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
