Guest Stamper Showcasing The Eastern Palace Suite

When I went to Massachusetts for Easter I stayed with my sister Cindy.  She is a great cook, lots of fun to be around, and super talented!!! (She’s the one who made me the beautiful spring wreath for my front door.)  She has a beautiful home with a breathtaking view of the water and an awesome craft room! Needless to say I felt like I was at a resort being pampered.

My pre-order arrived just before I left so I packed the box with the new Eastern Palace Premier Bundle (and some other new product) and we had so much fun creating! Yesterday I shared 3 of the cards I made using the Eastern Palace Suite. (If you missed that post you can click HERE.) Today I am sharing 2 cards my sister made using this suite. Here is a photo of her creating her projects.

Here’s the first card she made.

img_1308

She started with the NEW Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock which will be in the new annual catalog June 1st (or you can get it for FREE with the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle in May). She used 2 different patterns of the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper cut at 2 x 5 1/4 each. We both agree that our favorite NEW In Color is Tranquil Tide…it is gorgeous!!  Unfortunately, I could not order the new ribbon just yet but that didn’t stop her…she used the White Organza Ribbon (which I am sad to say is retiring) and dyed it using the Tranquil Tide ink and a sponge dauber.  (You can click HERE to see one of my very first blog posts showcasing this technique.) She stamped the sentiment from the Eastern Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  (I love the way Stampin’ Up! designs products to work together!) She adhered the sentiment to the Eastern Medallion Thinlit Die using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I love this font and sentiment!

What a simple and elegant card!

img_1382

She stepped it up with her second card and made a fun gate fold card.

img_1383

The card base is Dapper Denim cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 2 1/8 on each end. The Designer Series Paper measures 2 x 5 3/8.  She cut several dies from the Eastern Medallion Thinlit Dies and layered then on a piece of Very Vanilla and Dapper Denim. She tied a simple knot with Very Vanilla Ribbon to hold the tassel and attached it to the center with a glue dot. It reminds me of a door knocker…perfect for a gate fold card!

img_1385

The center panel is adhered to the card base with Fast Fuse along the left side only to allow the card to open from the center.

img_1386

This card could be used for just about any occasion!

It’s High Tide


I have been on Spring Break for the past 11 days and it has been glorious!  After spending Easter in Massachusetts with family, I picked up my friend in Virginia and we drove to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a beach retreat vacation.

img_1504

What’s your “Happy Place”?

img_1559

img_1561

The sandpipers on the beach reminded me of this swap card created using the High Tide Stamp Set.

img_1587

Here’s a couple more swaps cards I received using this stamp set.

img_1588

img_1586

I am happy this stamp set will be in the new annual catalog.  I love the beach and lighthouses and the sentiments in this set are different.

Look what came on vacation with me! Beach + Paper Pumpkin = Double the Happy!

Here’s a photo of my friend, Laura.  We taught together for many years in Virginia. We live 4 hours apart now so it’s always a treat when we can get together.

A Sneak Peek at Birthday Memories

I have shared with you some of the fun times I had at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event.  In addition to getting the new catalog, receiving free gifts and prizes, seeing new product display boards, participating in card swaps, and sharing ideas with fellow demonstrators, we got to play with some new products and stamp sets. Previously I shared the adorable little crate we made.  You can see that post HERE. Today I have a card I made showcasing the new Birthday Memories Suite.

img_1676

The banner and fox were cut from the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper using the Birthday Friends Framelits Dies. The Birthday Delivery Stamp Set has 23 photopolymer stamps with great fonts and adorable vintage storybook characters. The teacher in me loves this set. The bundle includes the stamp set, Designer Series Paper, and Framelits and will be available in June. Here’s some more ideas from the display boards.



I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek.

Have a wonderful day!

Saying Good-Bye…Part 1

It’s hard to say good-bye to some of my favorite items from the current catalogs.  Here’s a list of 5 of my favorite (non stamp) items that are on the retiring list…

  1. The Designer Series Paper Stacks

This was probably the biggest shock to me!  I love the DSP in the In Colors and different color families (Brights, Regals, Neutrals, Subtles).  While I never mind when they change up the designs, I can not believe they are being retired.  I use these all the time (decorating envelope flaps, making bags and 3 D projects, card fronts, etc.)! As of today, the Brights, Neutrals, and In Color DSP Stacks are still available.  Get them while you can!

Favorites - DSP

Here’s a set of cards I made using the In Color DSP.  Click on the image to see the original post.

Happy Birthday Andrew!

I can not believe I am the mother of a 30 year old son! I can still remember the day he was born.  I was not prepared for the overwhelming love I felt the moment I held him. He recently moved to my home state of Massachusetts for his job.  I am so proud of him and happy that he is embracing this new adventure. We traveled to visit him (and my family) for Easter and celebrated his milestone birthday.  Here’s the card I made.

img_1499

Every year I  give him a package of E.L. Fudge cookies for his birthday. I craved them when I was pregnant. Do you know how many cookies come in a package?  The fact that I know this could account for the 50 pounds I gained during my pregnancy.  I joked that he was going to be born looking like the Keebler Elf.  The colors of this card reminded me of those cookies…chocolate and vanilla.  Yum!

My card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.  The Designer Series Paper is from Urban Underground Specialty DSP and measures 2 1/4 x 3 3/4.  I added a layer of Basic Black 1/8″ larger.  The sentiment is from Milestone Moments and stamped in Delightful Dijon and Basic Black on a piece of 2 x 3 3/8 Very Vanilla cardstock.  The Basic Black layer is 2 1/8 x 3 1/2.  I added some linen thread and adhered the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added three White Perfect Accents which I colored with a Black Sharpie marker.
