LEMON LIME MEDALLION!

I know I have been showing you cards with retiring products BUT I just wanted to interrupt that to show you this card with the Eastern Palace suite.  I kind of liked how it turned out.  🙂

I started out to Case a card by Connie Babbert. You can see that card HERE. 

Here is my version.

CREATE YOUR OWN

1. Cut card base is Tidal Tide.  On a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock just slightly smaller than your base adhere a strip of the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP with the Tidal Tide pattern. IT measures about 5cm wide (2″). Add a little strip of the DSP in the Lemon Lime Twist colour across the middle. Don’t you love that new Lemon Lime Twist colour?? It’s so bright and fresh.

2. Add a sticker strip from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers just above the DSP.  Stamp 2 of the “sprays” in the top left and top right in the Lemon Lime Twist colour.

3, Cut a medallion with the Eastern Medallion Thinlits from the Lemon Lime Twist card and a smaller one from the Tidal Tide card.  Raise that smaller one up off the Lemon Lime Twist one with Dimensionals. Stamp the sentiment on Very Vanilla card and cut it with a small circle die from the Layering Circles Thinlits. Add some loops of Gold Thread behind the sentiment and adhere that on top of the other 2 medallions with Dimensionals.   

4. Adhere this to your card with Dimensionals.  Then add two of the flower stickers from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers to finish.

PARTY POP-UPS ARE GOING!

The Party Pop-Up Thinlits have only been around for a short time – and now they are going!  I thought I would show you a few cards I have made with them over the months.

The Thinlits make cool Pop-ups inside the card.  It’s such a WOW!

But you could add them to the front of the card.

The other Pop Up Die in the pack is the Happy Birthday.

For this one I cut the words out from Watercolor Paper and then coloured them with the Aquapainter and Inkpads.  I did add the Wink of Stella to the “flames” although that is hard to tell.

This card below is a Flap Fold.  I hadn’t shown you this one yet.  I made this last year for our nephew’s 40th birthday.

To make this cut your card vertically in half on the short side so you have a long card strip.  On an A4 sheet that would be at the 10.5cm mark.  Then score on the long side at 7.4cm and then at 14.8cm (ie at 1/4 of the card and half way). Fold on the score lines at the half way score line and then back on itself at the first score line.

This is the inside for you to see it.

I cut a circle in the Crushed Curry and placed adhesive on half of the circle at the back and adhere that half on the front flap.  The Designer Series Paper is the Moroccan DSP and the card base is Dapper Denim.

It needed something on the birthday and without making it to bling-y I added a strip of Silver Foil and just one Adhesive Rhinestone in the centre.

You can see the Thinlits set in my store HERE.  Now these are reduced down to $40.  I think they will be a useful addition to your cardmaking not just to make the WOW cards but to add them to card fronts as well.  Grab them now.

DIFFERENT WAYS WITH THE EASTERN MEDALLIONS THINLITS!

I have been working on this project for a few days.  Really! It’s not like it’s even a card but it seemed to take some time.  Maybe I was getting a little too fussy but anyway … I wanted to show ideas of how you can use the Eastern Medallions Thinlits.  I have seen a few Demonstrators show these ideas but thought it would be a good reference for myself – and to share with you.  🙂

These Thinlits would have to be the most versatile ones Stampin’ Up! have produced I think.  There are so many ways of layering them together or using one just by itself.  Don’t be limited to the ideas I have shown you here.

I hope this is  helpful for you.  See what you can put together.

Did you check out the great value in the Eastern Palace Suite Bundle that is available at the moment? There is only just over a week to grab this bundle.  If you want to refresh your memory just head back to this Blog Post -> HERE.   or see below. 

Have a great day,

Jenny

EASTERN PALACE MINI CARDS!

We had our team meeting last night.  I decided that I might get some swap cards made – like decided in the middle of the day!!  So these cards had to be quick – and they were!  A little die-cutting, only a little amount of stamping and then sticking them all together.

I have just started playing with this new suite, the Eastern Palace bundle, which will be available to order from next Monday.  I really like how fancy the dies cut and there are so many ways to put them together.  I will show you more about that another day but for now here is the card.

These are little 10cm x 10cm cards (4″x 4″).  I cut a smaller piece of the new Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper and adhered that to the base and then cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock just a little smaller again.  From this piece of Very Vanilla I cut the circular shape using a Thinlit and then the flower petals using a different Thinlit from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits set. Voila! A fancy card with little trouble at all. 🙂

I stamped one of the sentiments at the bottom from the Eastern Beauty stamp set.  I love how the sentiment curves around. Then I stamped the small flourish in both top corners.  From a different piece of the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper I punched a circle with the 1/2″ circle punch and raised that up with Dimensionals in the centre of the petals and then added an Adhesive Pearl.

I hope you like them.  I think they were well received.  Would you like your own?  I would love to send you some Happy Mail in the post to wherever you are.  Just send me an email/comment.

Stay tuned for some more Eastern Palace projects next week including a Blog Hop.

Have a happy day,

Jenny.

ANOTHER LADY IN RED!

A few weeks ago I shared a number of projects with the ‘Beautiful You’ ladies. I showed how to change the dress line of one of the ladies.  If you missed that post you can see that HERE.

I started making a video but I didn’t come to share that.  We won’t worry about the video now, but during the process I made a couple of these ladies so thought I would finish the cards off. I have the card to show you today.  It is similar to the original card.

Once I coloured the stamped lady with the Aquapainter and Watercolor Pencils, I cut the piece with the Layering Oval Framelits. Then I adhered a Paper Lace Doily behind it with a few loops of Gold Thread.  I actually had a white card piece already embossed with the ‘Fluttering’ Embossing Folder.  This piece was adhered on to a Red card mat and then a Thick Whisper White card base.  The sentiment “Celebrate” was stamped in black on to Real Red card and punched out with the Duet Banner Punch.

If you want to see the rest of the ‘Beautiful You’ cards I have shared recently then be sure to click on the tag below of “Beautiful You” and it will take you to all the posts.
