Creative Inking- What Goes Around

Hello friends,

Welcome to the May Blog Hop of the Creative Inking Crew. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from the US and Canada, and we bring you inspiration each month.

This month, our theme is “What Goes Around”, and I have decided to feature the cards from the new Eastern Palace Suite that Stampin’ Up! launched on May 1st for customers (demonstrators were able to pre-order it in April).  I advertised the special bundles at my stamp camp and to my customers last month and had a group jump at the chance to have this gorgeous bundle with FREE products as well! As a reward, for everyone who ordered this bundle from me by May 4th, I offered a special class on Wednesday night. Here are the cards we made and I’m throwing in some recent club cards I made so you can see that the possibilities are endless with this suite.

First up is a card featuring our new very vanilla note cards!

This card features our gorgeous Designer Series Paper (DSP) and right under the word “thank you” is one of the gorgeous new gold metallic stickers-yes, that’s right, I said stickers! They are so fun!

This card includes our fun new tassels, some gold foil specialty paper under the die-cut out shape, and more gold stickers! I love the new In-Colors included in this bundle, here on this card I’ve used Lemon Lime Twist with Fresh Fig.

This card was a “wow” card- with some “fussy cutting around the edges of the largest medallion gold sticker. This new color is called Tranquil Tide. A complimentary color to this suite is Dapper Denim from our returning In-Color collection.

Everyone loved making these cards, what do you think?

 

Let me also share with you two cards I featured at my clubs this month, this first one is my own design- featuring the new gorgeous In-Color Lemon Lime Twist! I LOVE it!!

 

This card was inspired by Patty Bennett- when I saw that she had created a sunflower card out of the Eastern Palace Suite, I wanted to see if any other demonstrators had done any sunflowers too. I found a simple card made by Julie D (the paper pixie) and I decided to CASE (copy and share everything) her design for my club members. They loved it and some of them even stepped it up and added some die cut words, and embellishments. (I wish I had thought to take photos of all of them- they were great!).

HERE’S MORE INFORMATION on the two bundles Stampin’ Up! released from the Eastern Palace suite for EARLY customer purchase – these offers are good only until May 31. Get these bundles now- before the products become available in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, (which begins June 1.) *Note that these items will not be offered as a bundle with free product after May 31st (everything will be available individually).


 

Don’t you just love the font? It’s gorgeous!

Here’s a FREE pdf to create three beautiful card ideas using the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle.

You can print a flyer here of what is included in the two bundles.

 

The starter bundle (147196, $60.50) includes FREE Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes. (Does NOT include the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies.)

 

The premier bundle (147207, $103.50) includes FREE Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes & NEW Very Vanilla Thick Card Stock (8.5 x 11). It does include the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies.

Stampin Friends May Blog Hop

 

Hello Stampin Friends!

Welcome to our May Blog Hop- our theme this month is Flowers or Sympathy cards… I’m sure you will receive lots of inspiration from all of the talented stampers!

If you came to me from Raquelle’s blog- welcome! Isn’t she fabulous? Love her creations! Also, I’d like to give a shout out to Lori Mueller, our guest hopper this month! (we are in another hop together on the 20th of each month, you will love Lori’s projects, she is very inspiring!)

 

This is a card I created to incorporate both elements from this month’s theme, flowers and sympathy. Sadly, I’ve need far too many sympathy cards in the past few weeks and I depleted my stock in my own card rack. So I made up a bunch of these.

This card features the new Daisy Delight punch, stamp set (yes- it’s a bundle!) and the gorgeous Designer Series Paper. I used the greeting from Heartfelt Sympathy and used the smallest flower punch from the Tree builder punch to make the little yellow flowers (daffodil delight card stock) and then the small white centers are from the small hole punch.

Here it is without a sentiment so you can see the gorgeous DSP.


I totally ran out of time to make a new 3D project… my apologies. I thought I would share the two 3D projects I featured for my last WTGD (Way to Go Day) for my top 4 ladies on my team. This is a new quarterly rewards program I have started for this Stampin’ Up! year, the first one was in January after the first quarter was over. The second one was in April and featured these projects featured here, and we will have two more this year. Here is the original Blog Hop: http://wp.me/p3eRQX-1Y9

What do you think?

Well thank you so much for visiting me today, are you ready to go half to the next stamper?

CentreStage, Toronto by Stampin’ Up!

Well my friends- you are not going to believe ALL the fabulous goodies Stampin’ Up! treated us to Friday night at CentreStage! This is a reward for Silver Elite and above- a nice leadership evening with dinner, presentations, guest speakers and give-aways, and the new 2017-18 Annual Catalog!! 

This is my friend Angela- we live near each other and she was the first person I ran into when I arrived!

Yummy appetizer platter!


 

Delicious dinner and dessert!


Wonderful sitting with the Glad Heart Stampers! 


Once again I had no time to make swaps- but luckily Angela and Missy let me snap photos of theirs! Aren’t these awesome!! 

This event was Friday night, after my 8 hour long trip I was afraid I was going to be late to the event. Luckily I made it in time. 


What a beautiful city! 

Well, that’s it for now! Thanks for stopping by today!
