Eastern Palace Suite Now Available

May 1, 2017

Isn’t it exciting, today is the first day of a product pre-order from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.  From today until the end of the month you can purchase one of two different bundles.  If you haven’t seen what you can pre-order then download the PDF and check it out.

Today I am going to share the first card I created using these products.  I attached a length of  Very Vanilla Ribbon behind one long edge of a piece of the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The panel is attached to Melon Mambo card and then to Thick A4 Very Vanilla card (a very exciting addition to the new Annual Catalogue).  To create the medallion I selected three dies which nest one inside the other from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies and cut them from Very Vanilla card.  I like to do this all at the same time and I use Washi Tape to hold everything in place.  Once I had die cut all the pieces, I cut out the medallion using the largest of the circles in the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  I cut another large circle from Rose Red card and attached them together.  The medallion is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the circle and the greeting from the Eastern Beauty stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Fresh Fig ink (you will get this fantasitic new In-Colour ink in either of the bundles).  I punched the greeting out using the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch and attached it to the card front using dimensionals.  I attached Basic Rhinestones around the medallion to add a little bling.

Inside the card I combined several of the stamps in the Eastern Beauty Stamp set to create a medallion shape.  I actually used one of the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies as a template and attached it to the card using Washi Tape.  I stamped the Melon Mambo image around the shape and when I removed the thinlit, I stamped the dotted circle and the small flower/star image using Fresh Fig ink inside the shape I had created.

I found the colour combination online (Pinterest I am pretty sure) and used that as a jump point to start my design process.  I think the colours all tone together nicely, with the Melon Mambo giving it a real pop.  What do you think?

I bet you can’t wait to place an order and start creating with this fantastic Product Suite.  Don’t forget if you want a gift from me to use this month’s Hostess Code when you place an order online (you will find it on the right hand side-bar).

Bye for now
