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

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….

EASTERN PALACE IN FRESH FIG!

I have been playing around with this brand new bundle coming soon,  the Eastern Palace suite.  I am liking all the different ways you can use this bundle.  I love how differently the Eastern Medallions Thinlits cut  to others we already had.

This  card I actually made before I made the one I showed in the last post and I have just realised I didn’t post this card.  Oops!  I CASED this card from Lyssa Zwolanek from songofmyheartstampers.com. You can see the original card HERE. 

The base is Sahara Sand.  What about the mat colour.  What do you think?? This is one of the new Incolors Fresh Fig.  It’s a little deeper than Rich Razzleberry.  You can see the difference further below.

I like how the circle diecuts in the centre.  It’s a cool pattern.  Then I have cut 2 different centre die pieces.  I added a Gold Vinyl sticker on the top one.  The sentiment is really nice.  I like that font.

I added a thin strip of the Gold sticker down the bottom edge and then some of the gorgeous Gold Foil Designer Series Paper from the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper.

I finished it off with some Adhesive Pearls.

Here is the Fresh Fig colour in comparison to Rich Razzleberry and Perfect Plum.  This is from Brian King’s blog HERE.  Head there and check out some of the other colour comparisons too.

Thanks for visiting.  I am going to go and play with this bundle some more so stay tuned.

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.
