cards, Stampin' Up!, Techniques

USING THAT EASTERN PALACE SPECIALTY PAPER!

Are you like me? The Eastern Palace Bundle paper came out early a few months ago, you used it and then it got stored away to be overtaken by more pretty paper???? Yes?

I dragged it out the other week and thought I would play a little.  Although this paper is not one of the Designer Series Paper packs available as the BUY ONE, GET ONE FREE promotion for this month I thought it would be fun to share it anyway.  After all you can use any paper. 🙂

This first one has a strip of the Tranquil Tide pattern in the Eastern Palace paper.  Then how fun are the Eastern Medallions Thinlits.  I cut the fancy circular diecut straight from the Very Vanilla card and layered it on the Tranquil Tide card base.  The smaller flower shape from the Eastern Beauty stamp set is stamped in Tranquil Tide on that colour card and then cut with the matching die.  No scissors required! The curvy sentiment fits nicely around the diecut shape.  Finish it off with the Gold Faceted Gems and some Gold Ribbon.  I think this is a classic style card.

This next one is totally out of my comfort zone.  Really, mixing 3 different patterns of paper!! But I think it works and I have to say I am happy with it.  I think it works as there is just one strongly patterned paper and then the other 2 are simple patterns.   It helps that the colours co-ordinate which is always a special feature of Stampin’ Up! Products.

The sentiment is stamped on white adding the “spotty” circle surrounding.  Then stamping and cutting a couple of the “flowery” shapes.  They all layer nicely together.  What more could you need to add than some loops of the Gold Thread.

What do you think?  Ready to drag out some of that Eastern Palace paper again? Maybe try the one above with some of your other paper packs and dare to mix the patterns. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny
