eP Friend


I was both honored and excited when Joy asked if I would be interested in being an eclectic friend! I have been shopping with Joy and Daisy at Eclectic Paperie for quite a while, and I can tell you...they are way more than just an online shopping store. Personal service is of utmost importance to them...which definitely keeps me coming back (that, and all of the wonderful products they carry...of course).

Thanks so much for this honor, ladies!!



My card uses an image (Boot Trio) that was included in one of my recent eP orders. It was stamped on white card stock, and that didn't work so well with my cream colored paper...so I just colored it with my Copic Sketch markers, and trimmed them out. The designer paper is Avenue, by Crate Paper.



I know a lot of you like to alter items, and these clear paint cans are a breeze! Instead of adhering to the outside of the can, I just measured and trimmed a couple of pieces, and inserted them inside. Easy peasy!! The Treat Topper stamp is from Stampendous, and the little die cut bats are from a Cuttlebug 3x3 Halloween die.

Congrats on being an eP friend! This is a wonderful little card and can - love those boots!

Dawn Easton said...

Love this set Rose Ann! You did a wonderful job! Those boots are a hoot! Awesome!
I have a question though...do you cut two pieces of paper to fit inside the can and then attach them so they don't shift? I have two of these cans but haven't done anything with them yet.

Thanks for sharing another WONDERFUL creation!

Hugs

Jane said...

Wow...these look great! I've never tried the clear paint cans because I had no idea what to do with them...but inserting paper...what a smart idea! (I'm over here hitting my own head..going "DUH!" :-) )

Thanks for sharing! And thanks for visiting MY blog and leaving comments. I feel honored.

RoseAnn ... This collection is ADORABLE! The paint can, especially caught my eye, as I have a couple that I need to alter. How on earth did you ever come up with the idea of the die cut bats on springs???? That is just so creative and adorable!

joslyn said...

congrats! these are both very cute. love the idea of putting the paper on the inside.

Leslie Miller said...

Rose Ann, you do such beautiful work--you're a wonderful showcase for their products. Congratulations on this honor! You know, I never thought about how these clear cans would be so much easier because you don't have to work around the handles. This is such an adorable set! I love those bats flying around on the springs!
