Eastern Beauty Week - Card 2

Who remembers Spirograph?  Or am I just getting old ha ha.  I swear this new stamp set, Eastern Beauty reminds me so much of that.  The designs you can make, the colour combinations...just look at this one for example.


I used several colours, Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim, Fresh Fig, Emerald Envy and Tempting Turquoise stamping on Whisper White card stock, layered with Lemon Lime Twist card stock and Whisper White thick card base.  It was so much fun, twisting and turning the stamps coming up with this design......no wait....what about that tube you could look through and twist while holding up to the light to see the colourful images. What was that called??  Kaleidoscope!! Oh I am going to have so much fun with this stamp set, and so will you.

Have a great weekend,
Cheers

Eastern Beauty Week - Card 1

My new blog schedule of Tuesdays and Thursdays is here, which must mean summer is right around the corner.  At lunch time today, hubby and I were picking up new plants for our back garden, lots more pretty perennials.  Funny thing, I keep thinking of plant colours in Stampin' Up! names....Wisteria Wonder, Tangerine Tango, Pink Pirouette.   My garden will look so colourful this year.

Talking about colourful, just look at this sweet card.


I used one of our notecards in Whisper White and first stamped the circle in Dapper Denim. Then using the Layering Circle Framelits, cut out a hole in the card front, inside the Dapper Denim circle. The sweet little stamps in new colours Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist I scattered around. The sentiment was stamped on the inside of the card, through the circle. To finish off this project, I stamped the front of the envelope in one corner to match the card front. This lovely card design I found on Pinterest and is demonstrator Caroline van der Straatten's masterpiece.  Hope you liked my version.  

Stop by on Thursday for another Eastern Beauty sample.

Eastern Palace Suite Week - Card #1

So as you know, you can pre-order the Eastern Palace suite a month early....yes, right now, you can purchase two bundles.  So I thought this week, I would showcase this beautiful suite. Here is my first card:



Isn't this beautiful?  Just to tempt your tastebuds, this card is actually one I have CASED from the new annual catalogue.  Want your own copy??  Live in Canada??   Contact me at baashunt@gmail.com and I will send you one.



Here is some information on the two bundles you can purchase from my store. Eastern Palace Pre-Order Bundles.   The die's alone are amazing and you can do so much with them making so many different designs.  Reminds me of Spirograph...anyone remember that?  Or am I just too old ha ha.

Here is what I used to make this card.

Have a great week and make sure to stop by on Wednesday for another great card and video tutorial.

Paper Pumpkin Week - Card #3

While we are still all wondering what the May Paper Pumpkin kit will be....and hoping like mad its a Father's Day card kit....I thought it would be fun to see what last May's kit was.  Better yet, to show you the video that Stampin' Up! released.  




Yes, Paper Pumpkin has its own YouTube page!!  Each month, after the kits have been mailed, a new video appears showing us all how to make the kit.

Sometimes it goes quite quickly....no idea how they speed up the video like that...so that was one of the reasons I wanted to offer my Paper Pumpkin subscribers an exclusive Facebook group where I will post my own longer version of how to put together the contents of the kit...plus any alternative ideas.  Drop me a quick email after you have subscribed, and I will add you to the group.

Here is a photo of my card from last year...plus an alternative I turned into a birthday card. So much creativity in one little box!!  






If you are interested in subscribing to Paper Pumpkin...here is some great news!!  Sign up for a monthly subscription before June 10th and get 25% off June, July and August's Paper Pumpkin kit!!! First time subscribers only.



Looking forward to "kitting with you", have a great weekend!!

Cheers
Anne

Paper Pumpkin Week - Card #2

Hubby and I, were thrilled to be invited to a wedding this past weekend. Which meant, I needed a card!   Last months Paper Pumpkin box was still sitting on my desk, half the cards made...the other half waiting to be assembled. So I thought, hey let's see if we can make this eye popping, fun card kit into a wedding card.   What do you think??



I used the base card and inside layered piece from the kit...a layer of blushing bride card stock (thought that was fitting) and added another piece of whisper white card stock to stamp on.   I used Petite Petals stamp and punch and added the embellishments from the kit...and some glitter paper.  The sentiment was from Rose Wonder, embossed in silver.  I thought it turned out great, especially when you see below, what the card was suppose to look like.


Love the fact that you can make alternative designs with the contents of the kit. So much fun...hours of entertainment in one little orange box.  Great way to occupy teenagers over the summer too.

Still not sure about Paper Pumpkin?? Come to my Paper Pumpkin Open House on Saturday May 20th. See what you get in the little orange box as I open May's kit and put it together. Join in and help me... or sit back and relax over a cuppa tea/coffee and some sweet treats.  Hope you can make it??

Cheers
Anne
