Eastern Palace Week: No 3


Hello Crafters, 

Love this card, says it all and truly elegant.

I have featured the new In Colour, Fresh Fig. I used this to stampt the circle and sentiment ongo Very Vanilla card stock. I cut this out with a Layering Circle framelit, but a punch would also do the job.

I then cut some Fresh Fig card stock using one of the Eastern Medallion dies. The sentiment was adhered to this with dimensionals. 

A large vinyl sticker was adhered to the card base. I added a small stamp image around the edge, then added the medallion with dimensionals.

Beautiful and easy to make!

Eastern Palace Week: No 2


Welcome to project number 2 featuring the Eastern Palace bundle.
On the background I have used Lemon Lime Twist to stamp this tiny motif.
I then stamped the 6 pointed flower in Fresh Fig and die cut with the coordinating framelits. I added a gold vinyl sticker to the centres.
The flowers were shaped using a foam pad add a ball tool, and adhered to the card.
The sentiment was added in Dapper Denim ink.
This took minutes to make, and I think it is really stunning. I hope you give it a go too.

Eastern Palace Week: No 1

Hi there everyone,
Yesterday I told you all about the new Eastern Palace bundles available as a early release.
Today I have a card project using this suite to show you. As a demonstrator, I have the added perk of ordering new products in advance, and I have been playing with this bundle already to show how it can be used. I will be showing a different project everyday this week.
On the background I have used the circular images in Dapper Denim, Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist.
I wanted to use all the featured colours, so I selected a piece of designer paper that was predominantly Tranquil Tide. I added a 2 inch strip to the bottom and topped it with a 1/2 inch strip of Dapper Denim.
I then used the framelits to cut Fresh Fig and Very Vanilla card stock to create the sentiment medallion. The card was finished by adding a vinyl sticker border.
I hope you like this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Hello Crafters,

One of the first stamp sets I bought from Stampin’ Up! was Papillon Potpourri. Sadly, this is retiring at the end of May.

So in honour of this set here is a really simple card.

Using a rainbow of colours, I stamped out one of the butterflies and punched them out with the coordinating punch. 

These were adhered to white 1 inch circles, wings bent up for a bit of realism.

The background was stamped with Gorgeous Grunge in Sahara Sand and Smoky Slate.

Arrange the butterflies as desired. The sentiment is from That’s the Tag.

I hope you like this card. Retiring supplies are only available while stocks last. There is a link to the shop in the menu.

Happy Crafting!


Sunburst Balloons

Good Morning Everyone,

Lift Me Up is my favourite set in the Occasions catalogue… I am so happy it will be staying with us.

This sunburst design in the Cupcakes & Carousels paper stack is the perfect accompaniment. 

Four balloons were stamped and die cut. The larger balloon was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Hope you like this project. Shop for the supplies used by clicking on the links in the menu.

Hi there crafters,

There is something magical about heat embossing…using clear powder gives a great tone on tone tone look.

I have used the Love Sparkles stamp set. 

The card stock was prepared with an embossing buddy. This prevents excess powder sticking where it isn’t wanted.

The star image was then stamped with clear versamark embossing ink. Add the embossing powder and tip off the excess. Heat the powder until it melts and turns glossy.

The sentiment was embossed in gold and then die cut with a Stitched Shape framelit. 

The card was finished with some ribbon and rhinestones.

I hope you have enjoyed this project. 

Thanks for stopping by.
