cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


I am sad that these colours are leaving us.  I have to say I have really liked working with most of these colours.  Especially Lemon Lime Twist.  I thought I would share a few photos of projects I have made over the last 2 years as we send off these colours.

At the beginning of the 2017 Catalogue when these colours launched I had to show them all together with a flower display using the Daisy Punch.

I like to create a group of cards using the Incolors.  These ones use the Detailed Floral Thinlits.

I think Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist has been a popular colour combination I have used over the last 2 years.

Lemon Lime Twist is just as nice on it’s own. It does seem a lot more intense though.

Tranquil Tide.  I used it a little bit.  It was a nice shade of green.  This one was using the Eastern Beauty stamp set.

Fresh Fig and Powder Pink I haven’t used all that much.  But here they are together with Berry Burst.

So we farewell the 2017-2019 Incolors.  What colour are you saddest to see going?

Inkpads and some of these colours of cardstock are still available to order.  Be sure to stock up if you like them.  The Reinkers have all sold out though so you are a little late with those.

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.


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.

cards, Stampin' Up!


While I am waiting for my new Incolors to arrive I thought I would play with some different colours with the Eastern Palace suite.  This time I have gone for a softer colour combination of Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Island Indigo.

This card was inspired by a home decor framed piece by Kerstin HERE.

This suite is SO versatile! I can’t believe how many different ways you can use this.  I have mainly used the Eastern Beauty stamp set here and just the “flowery” shape die and the small centre piece using the Eastern Medallions Thinlits.  After I cut the “flowery” pieces, I curled them a little with my Bone Folder and then raised them up with the Dimensionals.

So something a little different with them.

cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


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,
