Hey friends! How the heck are ya?! I don't know about you, but I am very excited about Onstage coming up in just a day or two. I mean, really. Who wouldn't be?! We are going to get to see a bunch of our stamping friends, craft with new stuff, and see the new catalog!! 😍😍😍😍 And find out what is retiring 😞
Well, there was just an announcement on Tuesday stating that there is a special opportunity to get one of the suites from the new catalog early! The Artisan Design Team gets to show you the suite in action TODAY! It's kind of like a preview to the preview 😊
“Here is a sneak peek of the Eastern Palace Suite. Exclusive for a limited time are the Starter and Premier Bundles, designed for both the beginning and avid crafters.”
“Preorder the Eastern Palace Suite Starter and Premier Bundles April 4-30. Get your hands on these colorful and exotic products to prepare for customer launch May 1.”
Are you ready to see some goodies? Here we go!
If you are following the hop along in order, you have just arrived from the wonderful Sylwia Schreck's blog, and I am certain that she has made some delightful things with this set.
It's my turn to try to dazzle you!
I used the stamps (Eastern Beauty #143675) and dies (Eastern Medallions #143725) from the Eastern Palace Premier bundle (#147207) They are so fun to play with! I love to make coordinating projects to give with gifts. This could be used for all kinds of things, but I had birthday in mind.
I was playing with the stamps, and Gold embossed the images on a 4"x5¼"panel of Kraft, then used the watercolor pencils and a Clear Wink of Stella brush pen that I have refilled with water about 3 times. It acts like an Aqua-painter with some shimmer.
Then I thought, what would this look like if I diecut the centers? Well, it looked great!! So I did them all! And some of the pieces fell out.. oops. So I went with it and trimmed the panel down to 3¾"x5", then stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso.
A little more stamping on the inside with Soft Sky and Early Espresso, and this card is done!
This Curvy Keepsake box was done is a similar fashion, but I Clear embossed the little flower-like image repeatedly on the Soft Sky parts. And I adhered vellum behind the cut outs so no goodies would stick out 😉
Here you can see the Clear embossed parts. I kinda love it 😁
Last up is the gift tag. There is plenty of space to write the recipient's name on the tag. I used Versamark ink to create this watermark look. And the Kraft flower with so easy to make, and then die cut with the dies! I could play with this bundle for a long time!
That is it for me, and if you started with Allison Okamitsu, then I am the last stop. If not, then be sure to head over to see what Allison has created!
