I’m back from Kansas City!! I had a wonderful time soaking up the Holy Spirit in the International House of Prayer KC, otherwise known as IHOPKC Prayer Room. I enjoyed my time with my younger daughter Amy and her friends and going to her school to help her get her room ready for the new school year!!
My next few blog posts will be the cards I did in my Eastern Palace class.
I did 3 of the ones Stampin’ Up put out for us to use for a class. I love this Suite of stamps, thinlits, and embellishments! This Suite can be found on pages 18 – 19 in the Annual Catalog.
Today’s card will be the top left one. It uses the new Tranquil Tide cs for the base and also the Designer Series paper which is cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″ being careful the wave pattern faces the right way. The Very Vanilla piece is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″. You then run it through your big shot putting the thinlit close to the left side of the paper. You will use the large circle thinlit. Next you will use a stamp from the Eastern Beauty set. Using Lemon Lime Twist ink you will use the small circle and stamp a few times on the Very Vanilla piece. Then using Tranquil Tide Ink you will stamp the sentiment “let’s be friends forever”, the swirly “s” at the bottom, and then the three little leave clusters and stamp in between the wishbone shapes. You then adhere it on the card using snail (tape runner). Next you will cut the flower out using a 3″x 3″ square of Fresh Fig cs, where you will need to use both of the star thinlits, fitting the smaller one into the larger one and running it through the big shot. Then use a circle from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers and put it in the center of the flower. Adhere the flower using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

We had a fun pleasant drive to Shreveport, Louisiana, yesterday! One of my downline and I arrived early evening ahead of the On Stage SU event on Saturday. We are going to be tourists today and explore the sights and also work on some of the cards for my upcoming craft fair I am doing April 29th.

Welcome back to Designs By Penny. Last Friday I had my friend Cyndi over and she helped me get my creative juices flowing again which had been missing for awhile.
Ever since the Occasions came out I had been wanting to make this Window Box using Window Box Thinlit Dies.
I started with Whisper White and cut two boxes. I then cut squares from the Sending Love DSP series using the Stitched square framelits. Next using Read Red cardstock I cut the Succulent out using Succulent Framelit dies. I then used the heart stamp with whisper white craft ink from the Oh So Succulent set. I had to let the white ink dry for a while longer than other inks. Then I cut out the leaves in Cucumber Crush cs and used Garden Green ink to stamp the vines on them. Finally I added a pearl embellishment to comple the succulent.
One hint I can tell you, is that on one of the boxes you can cut off both side tabs as it otherwise makes it to bulky and doesn’t want to stay together as easily.
Here are the products I used to make this adorable window box.
A few more days left of the Designer Series Paper sale. You buy 3 and get the 4th one free!!
If you are interested in ordering any of these papers go to my Stampin’ Up site and use hostess code 6QUDRAAG for any order up to $150.00. If it is more than $150.00 you are the hostess and get stampin rewards!
I’ve started my classes again. Had fun Thursday making 4 Fall/Autumn cards using Vintage Leaves and Leaflet Framelits, A Corny stamps and Acorn builder punch along others.
Setting up for class Thursday!
Everyone concentrating on making their cards 🙂
Till next time 🙂
