Welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan blog hop. You have probably just arrived from Miriam van Eyden's beautiful blog. Isn't she amazingly talented? Such a tough act for me to follow! If you are just starting here, hit the "Next" button at the end of this post to continue on the hop. You won't want to miss a thing! The Artisan Design Team are sharing a sneak peek of the Eastern Palace Suite on this hop, two months before it goes live in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue!
For customers, exclusive for a limited time, May 1-31, are the Starter and Premier Bundles, designed for both the beginning and avid crafters. As a Demonstrator, you can preorder the Eastern Palace Suite Starter and Premier Bundles between April 4-30. Get your hands on these colorful and exotic products to prepare for customer launch May 1.
I love the three new In colours on this card. I have used Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist inks and they work wonderfully together to create a card reminiscent of a mosaic tile. I am a Regals/Neutrals girl, and I can't believe I am saying this - Lemon Lime Twist is my new favourite colour! The Eastern Beauty stamp set has so many images you can use to build many different designs that have such a beautiful middle eastern feel to them.
There are so many fun new products in the Eastern Palace Suite, such as the Mini Tassels Assortment on the mosaic card and the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers I have used to decorate the sides of the Clear Tiny Treat Box.
I have used the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) as my card front on a card base of Fresh Fig and inserted a peekaboo window using a Window Sheet. Once again, I used the Vinyl stickers to create a design over the window. I love the play of light through the window when the card stands open.
I heat embossed a small sentiment on Fresh Fig card and punched out a banner using the Classic Label Punch, trimming one end square with the edge of the card. I had hoped to add a Gold Enamel dot to the angled end of the banner only to discover I had run out!! You will just have to imagine it there, lol.
