Woodgrain Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Did Mother’s Day sneak up on you, like it did on me?  I think Father’s Day is going to do the same thing!  As I was creating my project for tonight’s blog hop, I decided to use the sketch below as my inspiration and feature the Nailed It stamp set.  Nailed It will be retiring at the end of this month and is still (as of this writing) available.  However, many of the other items on my Father’s Day card for tonight have already sold out.  I’ll still share it at the end of this post, but I wanted to create something that would get you excited about the upcoming new catalog!

As you may know from my previous post, I am very fond of the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  I love all of the greetings and the 2-stamp flowers are adorable.  Using the sketch, I paired the stamp set with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to give the card a rustic feel.  I really like how it turned out, don’t you?

 

I stamped the greeting in Basic Black Archival ink onto Whisper White card stock, then die-cut it with the Layering Circles Framelits.  Next, I created a frame from Lemon Lime Twist card stock by die-cutting the same circle and an outer circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The flowers were stamped in Powder Pink, Berry Burst, and Crushed Curry inks.  Unfortunately, there isn’t a coordinating set of framelits for these flowers, so I had to fussy cut them.  It may look complicated, but it only took a few minutes.

 

I finished off the card by adding some Glitter Enamel Dots.  This product has been SO VERY POPULAR with demonstrators during the preorder.  I know you’ll want them, but there may be a slight delay for them to be back in stock.  Don’t worry!  I’ll keep you posted.  I definitely want more for myself, too.

Monday Montage 92

Welcome back to the Monday Montage blog hop!  Every other Monday, my friends and I share inspiring paper craft projects.  Be sure to visit all the stops….you don’t want to miss anything!

 

On Monday, you’ll be able to order select products from the Eastern Palace suite that is featured in the upcoming 2017-2018 Stampin’ UP! Annual Catalog.  The suite includes a stamp set, dies, designer series paper, stickers, and mini tassels.  I’ve shared several cards that I’ve created with this set over the last week, but today’s card is my favorite so far.

Eastern Palace MOJO494

I love the simplicity of using the Dapper Denim and Lemon-Lime twist color combo with the new Thick Very Vanilla card stock.  The patterns in the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper are so fun to mix and match.  I used the sketch below from Mojo Monday for the layout.

The larger piece of the Designer Series Paper measures 3″ x 4″ and the smaller piece is 3″ x 3″.  I like to keep my measurements even, so that I can get quite a few pieces from the 12″ x 12″ sheets.  It also prevents me from wasting a lot of paper.  You can get 12 pieces of 3″ x 4″ from a 12″ x 12″ piece of Designer Series Paper.   You can get 16 pieces of 3″ x 3″ squares from a full sheet of Designer Series Paper.  .  I die-cut a large a circle from the Lemon-Lime Twist pattern and added a  1″ wide banner to the back of the layers.  The Layering Circles Framelits complement the Eastern Medallion Framelits dies perfectly.

The Eastern Beauty Photopolymer stamp set includes images that accent the various medallions.  You can see the little floral fans stamped in Dapper Denim ink on the medallion below.  Also, the stamp set includes some great greetings that are perfect for many occasions.

You’ll finally be able to begin purchasing the products from the Eastern Palace Suite on Monday, May 1st.  Are you starting to get excited?

And here is an additional little fact about the Eastern Palace Suite:  it was designed by our very own Kaitlyn.  She works at Stampin’ UP! and she’s been on this hop with us since it started.
