Eastern Palace - Experience the Opulence! Stampin' Up! ADT Blog Hop

Hello friends!  I'm so glad you're joining me in Canada - I'm Shannon, if it's your first time here!  Welcome to a very special blog hop by the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team - we are launching the Eastern Palace Suite to our customers today!

We want you to experience Eastern-inspired opulence - plus get a FREE gift and three of the new 2017-2019 In Colours included in your exclusive bundle!

Stampin' Up! has done something amazing with this product release - the Eastern Palace Suite is available in two different bundles, designed for the beginner and the advanced paper crafter.  Let's take a peek!

The Starter Bundle ($77.75) includes the gorgeous Eastern Beauty stamp set, Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper, Eastern Gold vinyl stickers, Very Vanilla notecards and envelopes, and THREE brand-new In Colour Ink Pads, in Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, and Tranquil Tide.  You'll be all set to create beautiful cards as soon as you open the box.

Want to up the ante?  Check out the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle.  You will receive everything listed above, plus two big extras - the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies and the Mini Tassels Assortment.  They've also replaced the notecards with the new Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock.  This bundle has a major wow factor - those intricate dies will send your creations over the top!

I've been fortunate enough to have this bundle in my hot little hands for about a month now, and let me tell you - it's stunning.  The photos don't do it justice.

We did a sneak peek release of this bundle last month in which I focused on the richer, jewel-tone colours found in the bundle and a lot of gold.  This month, I wanted to brighten things up to show how versatile this bundle can be.  I started with the Lemon Lime Twist ink pad and built around that, adding an old favourite colour - Bermuda Bay - and a new favourite - Berry Burst.

The beautiful stamps and the fabulous foil DSP just shine in this bright and cheery combo, and the intricate dies will make your jaw drop.  They're just unreal!

I wanted to let the dies shine for my next card.  Because many of the dies cut into the paper instead of cutting out of it, I wanted to create a fun peek-a-boo card using a multi-coloured medallion.

This otherwise clean and simple card gets a major "oomph" with that cut-out, doesn't it?!

And lastly - another bright and cheery design.  The stamps layer beautifully as well, as shown in the background of this card.  Pretty neat, right?!

Do you love this bundle like I do?  You won't want to miss out - hop over to my Online Canadian Stampin' Up! store to get it now - it's only available for a limited time, until May 31, 2017!

I was asked on Instagram how to create these ombre sentiments, so I've created a video to share this technique with you.  The original format was Facebook Live, so pardon my rambling and the length!  

During the month of May, be sure to use my host code on your online order - JX26H4GM - to receive a gift bag of my favourite DSP, embellishments, and ribbon from the Stampin' Up! 2016-2017 Catalogue!  

I hope you love this bundle like I do - this blog hop should provide no shortage of inspiration to use your new stamps, paper, dies, and embellishments!

Let's hop over to Sylwia now and see what's going on in Germany...

Thanks so much for stopping by - have a fantastic day!
