LEMON LIME LABEL ME PRETTY!

I have been busy all week getting things ready for my Open House this weekend showcasing some lovely new products.  I will share some of these after the weekend but I shared this card on Instagram this afternoon so thought I would quickly post it here for you. (BTW: If you are on Instagram you can follow me.  Just do a search for Jenny Hayward). 🙂

I needed to make some cards using the new Label Me Pretty Bundle.  Now when I get a new stamp set I do a little searching online for samples using sets that are very similar.  So in this case I was looking at the old Chalk Talk set and a few “tags” type sets.  I couldn’t believe how many stamp sets that Stampin’  Up! have released with the word “tags” in the name.  Anyway, I came across a few older cards that inspired me through Google searches and on Splitcoaststampers.

I had this small strip from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I just LOVE this Lemon Lime Twist paper in the pack and I couldn’t bare to throw this strip out. I sometimes keep small pieces but end up throwing them out at the end of the catalogue as I hadn’t got around to using them.   Not this time though … 🙂

This was the finished card I created.

I stamped one of the “label” sideways on white card to create a flourish effect in Lemon Lime. The strip was adhered to the card and then I tied around some Thick Black Baker’s Twine.  This was adhered to the Lemon Lime base card. Another label was stamped in Berry Burst on to the Berry Burst card and punched out with the Pretty Label Punch.   The sentiment is stamped in black on to white card and cut with a Layering Circles Framelit.   They were both raised up off the card with Dimensionals.  I added some Rhinestones to the card but still felt it was a bit plain so after a day of looking at it I very nervously stamped some leaves from the Colorful Seasons set.  I was so worried of messing it all up and getting ink everywhere at this point BUT it worked!! Phew!  I think it might have been good to sponge the edge of the card with Lemon Lime ink but I wasn’t going to bother with that at this point.

So a simple card but funny that the whole card was designed around this little strip of paper!

Thanks for stopping by,

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.

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….

ESAD BLOG HOP WITH THE EASTERN PALACE SUITE!

Thank you for joining us on the ESAD Eastern Palace Suite Blog Hop.  I have already been sharing some cool projects with this suite this past week and I am excited to share this one with you too.

This project is a cute Tag and matching Envelope.  I will share the details on how to make it further below. It’s a bit hard to photograph with the shiny Gold Foil.  Sorry for the shine.

CREATING THE MINI TAG AND ENVELOPE.

THE ENVELOPE

1. Cut the envelope from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits with the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Before you assemble the envelope be sure to cut the circle window in the front panel with the Layering Circles Framelits.

2. Cut the circled strip in Gold Foil using the Thinlits in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set.  The little flower on the front strip is cut from one of the small Thinlits in the Eastern Medallion Thinlits set in Gold Foil and Dapper Denim.  

3. The “flowery” diecut in the centre is from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits set.  It comes out attached to your card with the diecut outline. You can snip off the tiny sections where it is attached.  I then used one of the Layering Circle Framelits to cut out the centre of this piece and also cut the circle in the Treat Bag BEFORE  it is assembled as mentioned further above.

THE TAG

When you pull the tag out it reveals the stamped piece that you could see through the window of the bag.

1. On a piece of Very Vanilla card [measurements are 8.4cm x 12cm – (3 3/8″ x 4 3/4″)] stamp the smaller images from the ‘Eastern Beauty’ stamp set in Dapper Denim. At the bottom heat emboss in gold the “flourishy” image. Add a matching strip of DSP along the bottom.

2.Heat emboss the circle image from the ‘Eastern Beauty’ stamp set in gold onto  a small piece of Very Vanilla card. Then heat embossed the sentiment in the centre.  To do this first ink the stamp in Versamark and then ink in Dapper Denim ink before stamping on the card. Pour over your Clear Embossing Powder and heat.

3. Cut the stamped circle with the Layering Circle Framelits.  Layer this circle on to a Gold Foil Scallop Circle which is a larger size of Scallop than the circle in the Layering Circle Framelits. Raise them up off the card with Dimensionals.  Layer this Very Vanilla tag on to a piece of Dapper Denim card [measurements are 8.8cm x 12.4cm – (3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″)]  Then add a piece of Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon at the top and a small Gold “flowery” diecut over it. To finish add an Adhesive pearl to the centre of the flower and one on the circle sentiment.

4. For the reverse of the tag cut a piece of Very Vanilla card the same size as the piece on the front of the tag. (measurements above).  Stamp the corner images again and repeat the DSP strip at the bottom and the Gold Embossed “flourish”.

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.
