Eastern Palace Suite

We were able to pre-order some products from the catalog so I’ve had some time to play with them.  I hope you enjoy these samples.  They also feature some of the new in-colors.

Here’s some samples that I’ve created with my pre-order and I’m having a difficult time trying to decided what I want to order first now that I can order anything from the new catalog.  I would love to hear what your favorite new items are from the catalog.  All of these samples were created using the new Eastern Palace Suite on pages 18-19 of the new catalog.

This first one is my own creation.  I was struggling with this set so I spent time on-line to get other ideas.  A big thanks to everyone who is willing to share.

If you want to create any of these cards

Colors – Dapper Denim – Fresh Fig – Tranquil Tide – Lemon Lime Twist –Whisper White

The next two were cases from other talented demonstrators.  I’m grateful for all the wonderful samples that others are willing to share for all of us.  I hope you will enjoy my twist on these fun projects.  Sorry I don’t have there names to give them credit, but I do thank them.   For this card I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to create the circles in the center project.

This last card is created by using the aqua painter to brush ink on watercolor paper.  This is then allowed to show through the intricate designs of the Easter Palace Suites dies.  These dies are fun because there are so many different designs you can make from the few designs just by mixing and matching them.

Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit Fun

I had a wonderful time at Stampin’ Up! Convention and I will be posting fun news and pictures about it soon.  But first I wanted to share with you the project I’ve been working on today.  At Convention I attended a specialty class where we were able to play with the new Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit. I loved this class and getting to work with the watercolor projects.  I came home and just had to finish all the cute cards.  Now while I can’t show you the cute Card Kit or Stamp set yet I can share with you the finished project which is way better anyway right?

So here’s what I came with.  The kit comes with enough stuff to make 5 each of 4 different designs, however I didn’t want the same cards so I decided to see what else I could make with it.  As you can see there is so much you can do with this kit and I still have stuff left over.

Water Color Winter Cards

 

So I thought I would showcase up close one of my favorites.  It’s kind of hard to see but the white has a fun would texture background.  Just so you know all these cards were created using just what comes in the kit along with adhesive and ink.  The stamp set is sold separately as well it’s called Watercolor Winter Too.  I’m entering this one in Stampin’ Up!’s contest.  Please do me a favor and help me win by going here and liking and pining my card.

Thrifty Thursday 3-12-09

We really had fun at club last night doing these great projects using the Circle Cutter.  I decided that it was a good one for Thrifty Thursday because the circle cutter can really save you a lot of money.  I cuts circles from I think one inch up to 6″ and anywhere in-between.  I also love that it cuts rings.  I have seen fun papers made with circles and I love that now I can create my own in any color combination that I want.  I also love the texture that it adds.

march-09-club-pagesNow I will be honest the circle cutter does take a little practice as they quickly found out at club.  However once you get it down I think you will love it as much as I do.  It is so smooth and fast.  I’ve really enjoyed playing with it and I’m sure I will enjoy it for many years to come.  Right now is the perfect time to get this great product because when you by the cutter and the mat plus replacement blades it puts you over $50.00 so you can get a sale-a-bration set.  This item has been on back order so you may not be able to order it on-line, however you can place an order through me.  Be sure to get your orders in early as I leave on the 20th and won’t be back until the 30th.

congrats-march-club-1I really love how I could use the punches to work with the circle cutter.  On this card I punched out the Congratulations (from the new spring mini).  I also punched the Chocolate Chip and Old Olive back ground papers.  Then I used the circle cutter for the larger Cameo Coral circle.

We also focused on texture on the projects.  The Old Olive papers are all textured card-stock.  On many of the Chocolate Chip papers we ran them through the big shot using the circle texture plates.  It’s hard to see but it really adds to the pages and card.

Swapping Saturday 3-7-09

sparkling-flowerI received this card in a swap as well and have always loved it.  Sorry I don’t know who created it. 

I really wish that you could see it better but the flower in the center is covered with glitter and it just really sparkles.  I am really drawn to the effect that is created by cutting apart the paper after is was stamped.  I just really like the look of this card.

I think the flowers were colored in with a blender pen since two of them are in-colors I belive.  You could also use a Aqua painter.  The yellow was probably colored with a marker.
