I think the two favorite things of everyone in the Eastern Palace Suite of products, an early catalog release from Stampin’ Up! during the month of May, are the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies and the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers. Instead of hoarding them (tempting!), I used the largest Gold Vinyl Sticker for the background of this medallion on this Eastern Palace Suite Card With Gold Stickers & Medallion Thinlits.
The card base is the new Tranquil Tide Cardstock, one of the new Stampin’ Up! In Colors. It is one of three new In Colors you can get in one of the Suite Bundles, both in the ink pads and cardstock. For the card layer, I used a piece of Very Vanilla, but you could also use Whisper White. These vinyl stickers are high quality! They are not flimsy, they are sturdy and easy to handle…and sticky, so you want to make sure you get them in the right place! Next I cut a piece of Gold Foil to go in the center underneath the medallion die cut.
The Eastern Medallion Thinlits Dies are some of the prettiest you could have and offer so many possibilities the way they are designed. Some cut the shape all the way out, some do not, so you have so many creative ways to use them. And you can mix and match a lot of the pieces. The Layering Circles Framelits Dies work great with this set.
The greeting is from another set and die cut with the Layering Oval Framelits Dies. The greeting is stamped with the Tranquil Tide Ink and the scalloped layer is a die cut piece of Gold Foil.
This was really an easy card for looking so elegant and fancy! Remember, you can choose from two bundles of new products in the Eastern Palace Suite during May, before the new catalog comes out June 1st. You also get a Very Vanilla FREE GIFT in each one! If you are a new stamper or do not own a Big Shot (yet!), just choose the Eastern Palace Starter Bundle that comes with the NEW Very Vanilla Notecards and Envelopes as your free gift! If you have a Big Shot, then you will surely want the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle that has the Eastern Medallion Thinlits Dies.
Be the first kid on the block to own some new Stampin’ Up! products ahead of everyone else!
