Today I am going to be explaining how to do the card on the bottom far right. I just love this stamp set Eastern Beauty! The measurements are 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. The Tranquil Tide piece of cs is 5 1/4″ x 4″. the Whisper White piece that I did the stamping on measures 5″ x 3 3/4″. First, I stamped the big circle in Lemon Lime Twist and built the card around it. Next using Tranquil Tide I stamped the first flower image to the left of the circle. Next, I stamped the flower to the bottom of the middle stamping off the paper. From there I continued building towards the top left corner. I then came in with Lemon Lime Twist and using the spritzing looking stamp I went around the whole flower over lapping each petal as I did this. I stamped the sentiment in Tranquil Tide Ink in the big circle. I adhered the Whisper White layer to the Tranquil Tide layer and then adhered them to the Whisper White card base. I completed the card by using a circle from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers and put it in the middle of each flower. This was a very easy card to make 🙂
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.
Today’s card is going to be the top right one using the new Daisy punch, This is a very quick and easy card to make especially for beginners to paper crafts.
Whisper White cardstock is used for the card base which is cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. Basic Black cardstock is used for the top layer which is cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere it to the base card using Stampin’ Up Snail tape runner. Punch out 3 daisies using the new Daisy punch in Whisper White and adhere them on the card. Using a scrap of Daffodil Delight punch out 3 centers for the daisies using a 3/4″ circle punch and adhere them to each daisy. Using a scrap of Whisper White stamp the sentiment “get well wishes” from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set using memento Black ink and punch out using the classic label punch. Next adhere to the back of the label the new Stampin’ Up Mini Dimensionals at both ends and put on the card. To complete the card put a clear Faceted Gem inside each daisy.

Had my Hostess Club gathering last night. I always have a lot of fun with those gals 🙂 Unfortunately we were missing some because of summertime and vacations.
Today I’m going to share the bottom left card. It was using the Color Theory Suite.
I love this stamp set Colorful Seasons as it has such versatility. You can do a summer at the beach because of the lounger chair. You can can do a fall card using the leaf stamps. There is a snowflake stamp for a winter card. This suite also has a Memories and More pack which you can use in photo album, scrapbook pages or to add that extra wow to a card!
The base of this card is Berry Burst cardstock which is 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. Next layer is Whisper White which is cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″. For the open house I had a choice of 4 different colors to choose from which included Berry Burst, Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive which was cut to the size 3 3/4″ x 5″ and was adhered to the Whisper White layer with stampin dimensionals. I cut the flowers out of the variegated side of the Color Theory DSP paper using the flower thinlit from the Seasonal Layers thinlits that go with the stamp set. The middle of the flower dots used the Glitter Enamel Dots that go this Suite.
I stamped the saying You make me Smile from the stamp set Colorful Seasons onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. This card used the Berry Burst ink and was then punched out using the new Pretty Label punch. Also, the Pretty Label punch was used with the DSP paper.
This suite can be found on pgs. 146 – 147 in the new annual catalog.

WOW!! I can’t believe it has been so long since I wrote on my blog. I’m sorry I have missing in action!!
I’m going to share with you the cards that were done at the make-n-take at the new catalog launch get together.
The first card today will be the top left one. I saw it on Pinterest and thought it was so cute and easy to do. It was from the Birthday Memories Suite found on pg. 68 – 69 in the new catalog.
It was your regular A2 size card using Blushing Bride cardstock. The first layer was paper from the DSP Birthday Memories paper. It was cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″. The Happy Birthday was stamped at the left side of the 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ Whisper White piece using Real Red ink. Blushing Bride cardstock was used to cut out the largest Stitched Oval shaped Framelit. The little girl is cut out from another Birthday Memories DSP paper along with the present. Blushing Bride 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon (retired) was used . Put the ribbon under the Whisper White piece and then tie a knot using a smaller piece of ribbon.
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.
Have a good day! Keep checking back for updates 🙂
This week I’m going to post the cards I did for my Cool Treats Class in March.
The first card top left I like to call “peek a-boo” card. It uses Chocolate Chip cs for the base. A piece of DSP from Tasty Treats is cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″. Fold it in half and just gently pinch it so as not to make an entire fold. Then using paper trimmer cut in 1 1/2″ and then fold each of those halves back to make the triangles. Using a small glue dot will help hold the edges down.
The largest stitched circle framelits was cut out using Watermelon Wonder cs. The ice cream cone was cut out using the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies. The cone used Chocolate Chip, the ice cream scoops used Peek-a-Boo Peach and Whisper White cs. The fudge topping was cut out in Chocolate Chip cs. The cherry was cut out in Whisper White and then colored using Real Red and Pear Pizazz markers.
The sentiment “Sweet” was stamped on a 1 3/4″ x 1″ piece of Watermelon Wonder cs using Chocolate Chip ink. Then rounded the corners using Project Life corner rounder. After that use a sponge dauber and go around the edges with Chocolate Chip ink.
Using Tombow glue on the DSP piece put it on the front of the base. Use Stampin Dimensionals to put the other pieces on the card.
You can purchase any of these products by going to either catalog to shop at the store.
