Can you CASE it Friday - Oh So Eclectic

I've moved to a new house and a new town recently and my husband and I are loving it, but I have to say I've lost my mojo when it comes to stamping!  It's not that I don't have the supplies :) but when I come up to my craft studio, I don't seem to be able to figure out where to start.  Has that ever happened to you?  It's certainly not the first time for me.

I've decided to start CASE'ing the Stampin' Up! Annual catalogue and once a week I'll post a card that I've CASE'd from the catalogue.

CASE is when you copy a card almost exactly or you might change up the colors or even the stamp set.  If you make too many changes from the original, then you didn't CASE the card but were inspired by the card.

There are so many cards in the cattie to choose from that are created by the amazing concept artists at Stampin' Up!  Are you ready for my first CASE'd card?  Here we go...

I received the Oh So Eclectic stamp set (Item 143940) at the Stampin' Up! Onstage event in April.  I loved the stamp set when I saw it and was thrilled to get it as part of a prize patrol!  First, here's the card I CASE'd from page 132.

The card uses the Oh So Eclectic Bundle (Item 145355 (wood) and Item 145356 (clear) that includes the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and the Eclectic Thinlit Dies as well as the coordinating Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (Item 144185).

Now, here's my card.

I made some changes to the card - that's where your own creativity can come through. Here is my supply list for my card:
  • Oh So Eclectic stamp set  (Item 143940)
  • Eclectic Thinlit Dies (Item 143774)
  • Whisper White card stock (cut 5 1/2" x 11" and folder in half to make card base)
  • Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (Item 144185) - Emerald Envy ombre piece (cut 4" x 5 1/4")
  • Scraps of Whisper White to stamp images on
  • Scraps of Copper Foil 
  • Copper Metallic Thread
  • Emerald Envy stampin pad
  • Berry Burst stampin pad
  • Pretty Label Punch (Item 143715)
The Eclectic Thinlit Dies allow you to cut out lots of different shapes and also to emboss.  It's hard to see on my card, but I used the leaves embossing thinlet to emboss some leaves behind my main flower.
