Eastern Medallions

Eastern Palace….Eastern Beauty…Eastern Medallions!  Today I want to share a project with you that showcases the versatility of the die set in the Eastern Palace product suite.  While the Stampin’ Up! catalog showcases projects using the coordinating colors in the suite, I like to play around with other color combos to create something just a little bit different. The Eastern Palace product suite has a stamp set with coordinating thinlits called Eastern Medallions. These die cuts (thinlits) are absolutely stunning and, in my opinion, are the best part of the product suite. The die cuts can be layered together to create a variety of different medallions…and each one is absolutely gorgeous!

For this particular card, I decided to use a purple and white color combo. Elegant Eggplant cardstock was used for the base of the card. I loved how that deep purple color seemed to really accent the white medallion. The medallion was created with 3 different die cuts, each one nesting within the other. I simply laid the three die cuts, nested within each other, on a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot embossing machine. And…voila…I ended up with a gorgeous medallion that is the focal point of the card. Then I simply used the images from the Eastern Beauty stamp set to add color and accent to the card.  My color choices were Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant but you could certainly recreate this with any color combo. For the finishing touch, I embellished it with some twine and rhinestones.

Got Stickers?

This week I am sharing a few fun projects I created with products from the Eastern Palace suite. One of the products in this suite is a package of gold stickers…yes, stickers.  I have to say that I was not too excited about stickers, that is, until I saw them.  These stickers are gold and they are absolutely stunning. They also have a great adhesive that doesn’t peel or lift up. I typically don’t use stickers but these are so elegant and a great accent for any project! Let’s take a closer look at a project I created with a variety of stickers that came in the bundle.

To make this card, start with a piece of the new Fresh Fig cardstock as the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock. I placed the large circular sticker on the right hand side of the white cardstock before cutting out the beautiful medallion image on my big shot. By doing this, I ended up with a pretty gold outline for the die cut image plus a little bit of gold within the image. I also used some of the stickers on the left hand side of the cardstock to create a pretty gold border. And, of course, for the finishing touch, I used a gold flower sticker on a piece of Dapper Denim cardstock to create the flowery embellishment for the card.  The rest of the card contains all different stamped images from the Eastern Beauty stamp set.

The Eastern Palace bundle is quite fun to play with!  There are soooo many different ways you can use the stamp images to create absolutely stunning cards.  This bundle of products is available at a special price until May 31st!  Plus you get a free gift! Take advantage of one of these special bundle options! You will be glad you did!

Eastern Beauty

The month of May seems to be flying by! Which is very exciting because it brings us that much closer to June 1st and the start of the new Stampin’ Up! catalog! WooHoo! This year, Stampin Up gave us a sneak peek of one of the fabulous product suites that will be in the new catalog….plus, they gave us the opportunity to purchase a bundle of products from the new this suite before it launches in June! The product suite is called Eastern Palace and it’s absolutely stunning! Here’s one of the very first projects that I created with it!

The card not only showcases the new Eastern Palace products but it also showcases two of the brand new In Colors:  Lemon Lime Twist and Fresh Fig.  The card is quite simple to create! I started with a piece of Dapper Denim cardstock for the base of the card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock. Using one of the new Eastern Palace die cuts, from the bundle, I cut out the fancy little circle on the right hand side of the card. Then simply stamped a variety of small images around the intricate die cut.  The die cuts the image right into the cardstock so the Dapper Denim color cardstock, that I used for the base of the card, shows right through. How fun, hey? Then I cut a few 1 x4 inch pieces of the new design paper from and adhered it to the left side of the card.  For the finishing touch, I placed a gold flower sticker on a piece of Fresh Fig cardstock and cut it out with the coordinating framelit. Simply beautiful and so much fun to play with!
