A DAPPER DENIM/TIDAL TIDE MIX WITH THE EASTERN PALACE BUNDLE!

I have another Eastern Palace Suite card to show you today.  I created this card after I made the project for the Blog Hop while I still had everything out.  BTW: Have you checked the Blog Hop out yet with the Eastern Palace Suite?  If not head back 2 posts and start the Hop around to see some great projects with this suite. 

The card base is Dapper Denim and then a piece of the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper is matted on to a Tidal Tide card mat.  I added one of the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers along the bottom edge.   For the flower I cut 2 of the shapes from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits in Tidal Tide and then 1 in Gold Foil.  I was still waiting on my Tidal Tide inkpad so I sponged the edges of the flowers with Versamark to add some depths of colour.  The flowers were layered together and then some stickers were placed on the top one.  Before adhering it to the card base I curled up the edges a little with my Bone Folder and then added some loops of the Gold Thread.  The sentiment is from the Eastern Beauty set and embossed in Gold and I added a little Gold embossed swirl as well.  This was punched out with the Classic Label punch and then adhered together with a Gold Foil one.   An adhesive Pearl was added to finish it off.

There you have it.  I hope you like it.  Until next time….

PINWHEEL TAGS TEAM SWAPS!

I have been on a roll with the Pinwheels lately using the Swirly Bird set.  I needed to make some swaps for our team meeting last night so I decided to make up some quick tags with them.  WELL….. That was the plan.  These tags took hours.  Nothing was going right yesterday.  I was getting ink everywhere, I was cutting things wrong!!! Do you have days like that?  Anyway, I got them done.

I made a few variations of them and a number of each. For the colours on the Pinwheels they are from left: Wild Wasabi and Emerald Envy; Sweet Sugarplum and Peekaboo Peach; Blushing Bride and Peekaboo Peach; Sweet Sugarplum and Elegant Eggplant.  I used some scraps of the Playful Palette DSP stack too.  (I am on a mission to use all of my DSP!).

The white card measures 13cm x 5cm (5 1/8″ x 2″) but you can make them any size you like.  These will fit on a card front to make a full card.  I rounded the tops with the Corner Punch.

The sentiments are from ‘Thoughtful Banners’.  I punched them out using the Classic Label Punch.  It’s cool that you can punch them different ways to create different effects. I coloured the Rhinestones with a black sharpie.

I got there in the end.  I hope you like them.  🙂
