A Fun Look for the Eastern Palace Suite

Bright Eastern Palace Suite

Today, I’m sharing a very simple card using the Eastern Palace Suite.  It’s a bit different from the other cards I’ve created so far, but I love the whimsical and bright look.  The colors I used for this card are Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, Lemon-Lime Twist, and Old Olive.

Bright Eastern Palace


To create the flowers, I had to stamp one of the medallion images twice, offsetting it slightly the second time.  The flowers were stamped on individual panels of Whisper White card stock.  I added the little spray image in Old Olive ink around the flowers to give it a leafy appearance.  The greeting is also from the Eastern Beauty Photopolymer stamp set and was stamped in Basic Black archival ink on the bottom panel.

Each panel was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  For an additional pop of color, I added some of the new Glitter Enamel Dots to the center of each flower.

This card can literally be created in less than 10 minutes.  What a perfect way to surprise a good friend!

Some of the products used on this card are available this month during a special preorder period.  You’ll be able to purchase the Berry Burst and Lemon-Lime Twist stamp pads on June 1st.  The Glitter Enamel Dots have been extremely popular with demonstrators during our preorder, so they may not be available when the catalog goes live.  I’ll keep you posted on their status because you are definitely going to want them for yourself!

New Powder Pink Paired with Eastern Palace Suite

One of my favorite color combinations is to pair a light pink with a shiny gold.  The new In Colors for 2017-2019 features a super soft and light pink shade called Powder Pink.  Since the Eastern Palace suite is now available for purchase, I wanted to show you some alternative color combinations and looks that can be created with these products.  I’ve got a few more cards to share later this week and you should definitely check out this card.

Powder Pink Eastern Palace

The layout from today’s card was inspired by my friends at Freshly Made Sketches.

It took 2 different dies from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits die to create the medallion on this card.  I stamped some ink splatters around the edges of the negative image in Powder Pink ink.  The greeting and the splatter image are both from the Eastern Beauty Photopolymer stamp set.  Another new product featured on this card is the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack.  I cut 2 small strips of the Powder Pink Floral patterned paper to accent the medallion.  This paper stack includes floral patterned paper in all 5 of the new In Colors.


Eastern Palace in Gold and Powder Pink


There are several touches of gold on this card.  First, I sandwiched the die cut top layer and card base with a Gold Foil Sheet so that it would show through the negative image.  I added a swirl of gold metallic thread behind the greeting.  And finally, I scattered a few Gold Vinyl stickers around the focal point.

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.

Eastern Palace Suite

It will be another month before the new Stampin’ UP! annual catalog is unveiled.  However, I’ve got a special sneak peek for you today that features a new suite of products called Eastern Palace.  You will have the opportunity to order this elegant suite for yourself beginning Monday, May 1, 2017.   The designers at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKSpiration are featuring cards made with this suite on the blog today, and be sure to check out this additional card I posted earlier.


Sneak Peek of Eastern Palace Suite

The base of this card is Thick Very Vanilla card stock, which is definitely one of my new favorites.  I layered a piece of Tranquil Tide card stock between the top and bottom layers of Very Vanilla card stock to give the card more dimension.  For the background, I stamped different circle images from the Eastern Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set in Dapper Denim, Lemon-Lime Twist, and Tranquil Tide inks.  Lemon-Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide are 2 of the new In-Colors for 2017-2019.  I think Lemon-Lime Twist is going to become an instant hit with stampers.  Love it!

Eastern Palace Hello Card

I added a few strips of the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper at the bottom of the card, as well as die-cut the flower image from a Lemon-Lime twist pattern.  A few Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers were scattered in the background, added as a border and used to accent the die-cut flower.  The greeting was stamped in Dapper Denim ink.  The Eastern Beauty stamp set features some great greetings in addition to the images, which makes it great for all stampers.
