Sometimes I don’t feel so inclined to use any great layers or embellishments ie bling to make a card. Instead I just have a need to dig for my inner artist and just use inks and paper. This is done with a Whisper White sheet of card stock and sponged with Berry Blast, Tranquil Tide, and Lemon Lime Twist inks as well as Momento Tuxedo Black ink on a sponge dauber for the edges as well as to stamp all the images. Touches of Texture was my main stamp set but hello came from the Eastern Palace stamp set. It is matted in Berry Blast and Basic Black.
This time while using the Eastern Palace Suite I didn’t use any of the new in-colours instead I used Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Very Vanilla. Also this time I only used the stamp set from the suite. This was a lot of fun and the composition kinda fell in place as I went! I finished by embellishing with enamel shapes. Unfortunately these ones have retired.
Today the Eastern Palace Suite is available for customers. If you wish to have it let me know and I will contact you. This is a monotone style card made with that suite. The colours are Fresh Fig and Very Vanilla and I used the dies, stamps and a strip of the DSP. Simple but clean. And guess what? I didn’t use Lemon Lime Twist 😂
Another card with the Eastern Palace suite. I’m just loving this Suite it seems the possibilities are endless. It has Dapper Denim and Very Vanilla as Well as the new In Colours Tranquil Tide and of course Lemon Lime Twist. Believe it or not I have yet to have used all the dies in this set nor have I used all the stamps so yes there will be more!
Another example of the Eastern Palace suite. Used Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist with the blender pen and covered with one of the gold stickers. Stamped background with Lemon Lime Twist and sentiment with Fresh Fig on Very Vanilla card stock. Used Tranquil Tide card stock for the banner and wrapped with gold thread and tied a Fresh Fig tassel to it and mounted it with Stampin Dimensionals. Matted it with Fresh Fig card stock and Finished by mounting it all on a Very Vanilla Thick card base. I think it’s my favourite so far!!!
Another card made with the Eastern Palace Suite. This one has the new in colours Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide as well as Dapper Denim and Very Vanilla. I told you I would go insane on Lemon Lime Twist. I’m just keeping my word. 😂
I’ve been working all weekend playing with the Eastern Palace suite from the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual catalog. And this was my first creation. It uses the Eastern Beauty stamp set, Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies and a touch of the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers. There are 3 new in-colours in this Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist. I have a feeling I will spend the next two years going nuts with Lemon Lime Twist and no apologies!!!!
