I did say last week I had a couple more cards made with the Eastern Palace Suite to share – the stamp set, dies, designer paper and embellishments are just too pretty not to use again and again ~ the lovely jewel tones keep drawing me back, so much so I had to buy another pack of the paper and those gold stickers.
You can check out all of the products in this suite on page 19 of the 2017 – 2018 catalog ~ don’t have a copy? Just leave me a comment and I will get right back to you. Continue reading
Birthday cards are probably the most type of card we make and send, yes well Thank You cards are right up there as well – I do send a lot of those! ………..
………Back to birthday cards…… I like to make a batch of about half a dozen so that I have a few in my stash in case I need one in a hurry. In the 2017 – 2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual catalog there is a single die, tucked away on page 213 (and pictures on page 76) which makes a lovely center piece for my card. I used it as a single layer – which was fine, but felt it needed a little something more so I doubled it up to form a ‘shadow’ effect, and here I have a video to share the technique with you 🙂 Continue reading
Earlier in the week I shared a couple of cards featuring the Happy Birthday, Gorgeous stamp set. Those cards showed the balloons, today I am sharing cards using the flower stamps, perfect for birthdays or maybe ‘just because’
As I said in my earlier post, this set has 32 pieces, flowers, leaves and balloons plus 13 different greetings! If you are looking for a set that covers most occasions this is the one for you! Continue reading
Today I have two cards to share, both made with the Happy Birthday, Gorgeous Stamp Set. This set has 32 pieces, flowers, leaves and balloons plus 13 different greetings! If you are looking for a set that covers most occasions this is the one for you! Oh…. and there is even a ‘BELATED’ stamp – just to cover us for those little ‘whoopsies’ when dates escape us!
Both cards feature balloons and one the ‘Happy Birthday’ thinlet die that is available as a bundle with this set (saving a whopping 10% if you buy them together) Continue reading
The two cards I decided to share today shows of even more of the Eastern Palace suite of products. The opportunities are practically endless and it is so difficult to just pick one or two examples – so I am going to run with some today and then a couple more next week.
Earlier this week I posted a card made with the Eastern Beauty stamp set and promised to share some more cards to show how versatile this stamp set is. I have used most of the products from the Eastern Palace Suite (which can be found on pages 18 and 19 of the 2017 – 2018 Annual Catalog; and also showcased 4 of the 5 new ‘in-colors’ Continue reading
Back in early May, Stampin’ Up! did an early release on one of the new bundles from the 2017 – 2018 Annual catalog. The Eastern Beauty Bundle included the stamp set, coordinating thinlet dies, card and ink pads in three of the new in-colors. Needless to say I, like many other demonstrators fell on this set – it is beautiful and so very versatile and the rich tones of the new colors were a perfect foil for the stamps. I have some I will be sharing in the coming days.
I was planning to make some cards for July 4th and the stamp set was sitting on my workbench so I picked it up with some Real Red and Night of Navy ink and this was the result!
Yesterday was our 16th Wedding Anniversary – it seems incredible ~ those years have flown by so fast. I made a card for my husband and tried very hard to give it a bit of a masculine twist, I think I captured it in the colors but perhaps the bow was a little too ‘girly’ – but he took it very well.
