Eastern Palace Suite: Forever Friends

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Back today to share another card using the new “Eastern Palace Suite”.  This is also one of the cards we did at our Stamping Club this month. 

Today’s card uses another of the dies (actually 2 of them) along with the Dapper Denim and the new Tranquil Tide from the 2017-19 In-color collection.

I also used a second die … but before we cut it out, we used one of the many vinyl stickers included in this suite. They were layered on top of each other to create a beautiful focal point to the card.

I also tucked in a bit of the Gold Glimmer paper which coordinates beautiful with the new embellishments.

Here are the Eastern Palace Suite bundles …

You can click on either of the bundles above to view the contents of each bundle. I love that you will get 3 of the 5 new In-colors!! Oh yes, and the free stuff. Please let me know if you have any questions on this product suite, or the bundles.

When I think of you I smile, so …

Enjoy your day my friend ~

Eastern Palace Suite: Forever Friends

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Back today to share another card using the new “Eastern Palace Suite”.  This is also one of the cards we did at our Stamping Retreat.  Yesterday I shared a simple card that was cut with just one of the many dies included in the set.

This is yesterday’s card … It also featured one of our new 2017-19 In-colors … Tranquil Tide, and I teamed it up with Dapper Denim.


Today’s card used the same die and the Dapper Denim, but instead of cutting into the cardstock, we actually cut it out! Just a few snips and you had a totally different look!

I also used a second die … but before we cut it out, we used one of the many vinyl stickers included in this suite. They were layered on top of each other to create a beautiful focal point to the card.

The card is anchored with the used one of the “specialty” sheets of Designer paper that coordinates with the Eastern Palace product suite. I slipped a piece of the Gold Foil paper underneath it to give it a more finished look.

This angle really shows the beautiful cuts using the Eastern Palace thinlits dies. See how the die actually cuts with the sticker … amazing! I love it.

The greeting comes in the coordinating stamp set … you can see that they really thought this product suite through. It has everything and more. I find it so fun to play with…. and easy!

Here are the Eastern Palace Suite “Sneak Peek” bundles …

You can click on either of the bundles above to view the contents of each bundle. I love that you will get 3 of the 5 new In-colors!! Oh yes, and the free stuff. Please let me know if you have any questions on this product suite, or the bundles.

Have a happy Monday my friend ~

Stampin’ Retreat: Birthday Blast

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have some more cards for your from our stamping retreat.  I wish you could all come … we have so much fun, and I really love our new stamping area! So bright and roomy!

OK … Hard to believe I started this post at 6:30 am, and now it’s after 6pm!! I’m going to quick finish before it kicks me off again!!

Here is a set of cards we did during our morning stamping session …

As you can see … we began where we left off at our last session, the Dragonfly Dreams! This card showcased the “Masking” and “Sponging” techniques.

Our next two cards featured the “Birthday Blast” stamp set.  This is on our retiring list and makes me a bit sad … but then I picture all the fun new stamp sets (wait till you see them!).

But before the new catalog comes out, here is one of the cards we made.  I cased this from Patty Bennett’s website …

 

Don’t forget … ALL BUNDLES in the Annual Catalog and Occasions catalog will be retiring!! Even if the stamp sets carry over – the chance to save 10% will be gone.

Thank you for checking back with me, I appreciate it.

Have yourself a wonderful day!

Stampin’ Retreat: Dragonfly Dreams

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share with you another sneak peek into our stamping retreat along with another card that our stampers made.

Here is our new stamping room, all set up and waiting for our stamping friends! Their bags are filled with all of their pre-cut projects … only a little cutting or BigShotting because this is a retreat … no stress zone!

There we go … doesn’t it look better when filled with all of these lovely ladies! I have been blessed over the past 10 retreats to have an array of wonderful stampers who join us.

Today’s project required some cutting as they learned how to do a “Step Card”.  This is one of my favorite folds because it’s so easy to do but very dramatic.

The card was created with the “Dragonfly Dreams” bundle and the “Falling in Love” Designer series paper. Our dragonfly is actually cut out of the beautiful Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.

Don’t forget … ALL BUNDLES in the Annual Catalog and Occasions catalog will be retiring!! Even if the stamp sets carry over – the chance to save 10% will be gone.

Thank you for checking back with me, I appreciate it.

Have yourself a wonderful day!
