Over the past couple of weeks my crafting ‘mojo’ has been off on holiday somewhere – but I’m pleased to say it returned over the weekend and I was busy making cards using the new Eastern Palace suite. Over this coming week I hope to tempt you with this wonderful suite that will be in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue. Stampin’ Up! have a special promotion on till the 31st of May that includes two different bundles of products from the Eastern Palace Suite – check out the promotion on my website here for the Starter Bundle or the Premier Bundle
Now on with my first card. The Eastern Palace Suite contains a stamp set, thinlits, designer series paper, vinyl stickers and mini tassels. For this card I’ve used the stamp set and thinlits along with two of the new In Colours for 2017-2019.
These thinlits are so versatile. There are 14 dies in the set but the combinations well and truly exceed this. I have yet to add up all the combinations. To make this card I cut a square out of Whisper White (I think I used the biggest Square die) then out of this cut one two sizes smaller and then out of that cut out the six pointed star (best description I could think of) and then out of that the die with the six petals. Hope you got all of that :). The last piece that got cut out then needs a bit of snipping to create the centre piece. Stamp the centre, layer up the different colours with the top one being adhered with dimensionals and your card front is sorted. One of my favourite embossing folders is Petal Burst – I’ve gone with the indented side face up.
I’ve also used some Tranquil Tide ribbon – it’s lovely and soft. I really like the combination of Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist – I’m sure these colours are going to be winners come 1 June.
