Eastern Palace Sunflower

There really is no end to what can be made with this awesome Suite.  Check out this  beautiful sunflower!


The base on this beauty is Early Espresso; the middle layer is Whisper White, and the base is Daffodil Delight.  I die cut the flower shape right into the card front and lightly sponged the petals to give it some dimension.  Then I stamped the curly circle in Early Espresso into the middle.  Net I stamped "thank you" in Early Espresso onto a scrap of Daffodil Delight and it out.  It was then layered onto another circle of Early Espresso.  A beautiful bow made with Early Espresso striped ribbon, and the card was complete.

Super cute, super quick, and super easy!

Please contact me if you have any questions about this project.

A Note for You with Eastern Palace

Here is another card made  using the awesome Eastern Palace Bundle.


The card base is made with the new Fresh Fig In Color.  Its color is so rich.  The card front is Very Vanilla die cut with one of the beautiful thinlits in the Eastern Palace Bundle.  The die cut was highlighted with a small stamp from the stamp set in Tranquil Tide.  The sentiment is also in Tranquil Tide.  I love how the sentiment is designed on a curve. It's perfect for this bundle because of many of the stamps and dies are circular.  The small strip of paper is from the coordinating DSP in the bundle.

Please contact me if you have any questions about this project or if you'd like to purchase any of the products used.

Stamped Background Thank You Card

This is another card made at last weekend's Eastern Palace Suite card class.  This was all stamping!  The background paper was stamped using different images from the stamp set, and the sentiment was also layered with stamps from the set.  The colors used are Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist.


First I stamped the "thank  you" in Fresh Fig; next I staped the decorateed circle around the sentiment using Lemon Lime Twist.  Finally, I added a larger circle using Fresh Fig.  Now that the sentiment, and the focal point of the card, were complete, I focused on the background.  I used the two images shown and randomly stamped then on the card front.  When I was happy with the design, I mounted the card front onto the Fresh Fig card base.  Super easy.  I love making my own background paper for cards.

I'm happy to answer any questions you have about this project or any other.  If you do not currently  have a Stampin' Up demonstrastor, I'd be happy to help you out!  Click on the "Contact Me" button to leave me a message.

Eastern Palace Vinyl Cards

I'm just loving the Eastern Palace Bundle --  especially the stickers.  When I first saw that stickers were included in the bundle, I was a bit skeptical because I'm so NOT a sticker person.  These stickers are actually vinyl stickers --thick and sturdy -- and beautiful! As a bonus, if they're used with window sheets, they can be either gold OR silver!  Watch the video below to see how one design was transformed into two different cards using these stickers.






Contact me with any questions about this project or if you'd  like to take advantage of the great Bundle Deal currently  underway.

To Think of You is to Smile

This is one of the cards we made at the Eastern Palace card class last weekend.  Of all the cards that were designed and made, this is my favorite!  It was so simple to make yet it looks like a piece of art!


I cut a small piece of  DSP from the bundle and attached it along the left.  Then I die cut the flower using two of the nesting dies and attached them on the card as shown.  I stamped the bursts in Lemon Lime Twist into the dips of the flower to make the circular design around it.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Fresh Fig in the bottom corner.

I used the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle to make this, but if you haven't gotten your bundle yet (available until May 31), all the items will be availabe individually when the new catalog goes live on June 1.

Waterfall Birthday Cards

These Waterfall Cards are just so much fun to make -- and to receive.  I recently needed two birthday cards so I decided to make each of the birthday ladies a waterfall card.  There is a video at the end of the post to show you how the lemonade card was made.

This card was made for a very "sweet" lady, so I thought lemonade was perfect for her!  I did use some retired products (Schoolhouse DSP and  Garden Gingham Washi Tape) for this project.


This  one was made for a wine lover so, of course, the glasses of wine were perfect for her!
