Eastern Palace Suite

Today I experimented with the stamps in this set. I tried different variations of color, altered the design a bit and of course had ink smudges and cutting errors. One way of correcting some ink smudges was to use the Circle Framelits to cut out the center part of the design. I can now use it on another card. I could not get the border of words to fit around the outside exactly, so I used some of the small design stamps as spacers and I ended up liking it. The first image below is some of the experiments that I can use on other projects. REMEMBER, you can order a bundle of these products featuring a discount beginning May 1. After the new catalog goes into effect on June first, these products will be available, but NOT with the bundled discount.

This is the most versatile product bundle! The stamp set gives you tons of combinations, and then when you add the thinlits, gold stickers, and tassels to mix the possibilities are endless!

Glimmery Dragonfly

I'm going to have to get another package of this designer series paper. It is soooo beautiful and I keep finding more and more uses for it!

Darling Lace Doilies

I love these doilies. One side is Whisper White and the other side is Very Vanilla, which makes them so versatile.  Do you want to see what else you can do to make them eve more versatile? Cut them up into different designs. If you look carefully you can find plenty of different designs. Below I've just cut a few to get you started.

Lovely Easter Card

This card makes me swoon, it's just so pretty. I didn't have any pink decorative dots left, so I got out my Copic markers and colored some pearls. Worked like a charm!
