Eastern Palace showcase... suite and samples




So we are being given a new suite to play with as an early release from the new June Annual catalogue. I can only say I ADORE this suite. Its opulent, luxurious, rich, ..ok I ran out of descriptive words I need a Thesaurus. But I really love this new suite. The new in colours Fresh fig, Tranquil tide and Lemon lime twist really are shown to their best with this suite. They go together perfectly and marry well with other already standing Stampin' Up! colours, chiefly Dapper Denim. The foiled papers allow a splash of gold to complement the other colours and just serves for a genuine Eastern feel.

To celebrate the early release of this Suite available from May 1st my Stampin' Up! team and I created some samples for you to look at for inspiration on using the suite. So here are the inspiration cards for you I do hope you like them. Don't forget to check my stampin shop come May 1st to get your hands on this Suite.


Stunning card showcasing the Eastern Palace Suite and especially the dies. Sandra Riley has created the ultimate in luxury with this card its just beautiful. You can find Sandra who is a very talented card maker via her blog link on her watermark. Her blog  name is The Cotswold Crafter.


This very simple idea was created by Barbara Tindle one of my fantastic team members. Barbara has gone for the simple look in order to show off the papers in their full glory. Very cleverly designed to highlight you don't need a heap of supplies to make a very stunning card. Again Barbara has made use of the dies and used simply for her sentiment. Outstanding card. Barbara does not at this time have a blog but I think you will agree she should !!! 


This outstanding card was created by Stacey Donaldson. Using the dies to create a fantastic border and the small tiny detail stamps to create her own custom patterned back ground. A most fantastic card and shows the suite of in a totally different way to the previous two cards. Stacey also has her own blog her blog name is stampinwithstazzy.


This card was created using snippets of the gold foiled sheets to add that extra pop of Eastern luxury. These are my samples from playing with this awesome suite.



Again here I used the gol foil sheet to create a fancy cut border, Paired with a gold embossed sentiment on plain white card just looks fantastic and a very simple card.


Here I wanted to highlight the Fresh fig colour and wow doesn't it just pop backed against the very vanilla card stock. I just love this suite and how whatever you do everything just marries perfectly.

    1. I think the key is to use the stronger colours as accents karen then they don't over bare but indeed help the other colours pop... They really do work well together x Amanda
