My blog is sandwiched nicely in the middle of this blog hop, so you may have just visited the blog of the extremely talented, Debbie Henderson. She’s always got such wonderful ideas and I love her work. Be sure to scroll to the end of this post to follow along to your next stop.
It’s been many years since I have had a Monthly Stamping Club, but this month marks its return. I wanted to create a project that would delight my newly committed club members, most of whom are card makers. I’ve been working on this project for the last month and it has finally come together just the way I envisioned it. The project begins with a simple card holder tied together with some beautiful Crushed Curry 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon.
When you untie the ribbon, the holder opens to expose two inserts holding 2 cards and 2 envelopes each. All of the cards feature the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set, Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, Color Theory Designer Series Paper, and the Glitter Enamel Dots.
I created a card for each season by choosing a different color scheme for each one. The colors in the Color Theory Suite are Crushed Curry, Dapper Denim, Old Olive, and Berry Burst. As you can see, there is a lot of variety in this product line.
If you’d like to get a closer look at the individual cards, I’ll be sharing them all this week on my Instagram account, thestampdoc. I’ll also be sharing information in my weekly newsletter on how you can get the tutorial and card supplies as a gift with purchase through July 31st. You will also be able to purchase just the tutorial if you would like to use it for personal use. Don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter to learn more about this project.
Your next stop on this blog tour is to the other Melissa……Melissa Davies! I’m sure she’ll be blowing us away with another amazing project this month.
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.
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.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
