Stampin’ Up! Eastern Palace Sneak Peek Thank You Card!

Good Monday morning to y’all!  Didn’t go to the movie yesterday – we’d forgotten about the obedience class at 3!  No way to make it happen.  So we stayed home and did some chores – we’ll go next weekend!

Today is the last day of my Eastern Palace Ordering Special!  Order the Premium Eastern Palace Bundle before the end of the day and you’re going to get a few extra bonuses!  You can read on down the way a bit for all the details.  But the most important one is that time is almost up!

To help you decide that you need to get this set soon, I made another card using several of the goodies included.  Take a look-see:

The layout is inspired by the Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

I started by SNAILing a piece of the Fresh Fig paper from the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP onto a piece of Tranquil Tide card stock mat.  I SNAILd a smaller, different, design on Tranquil Tide and SNAILd it to the card front.

The art work is cut from Very Vanilla card stock (regular weight).  I used three of the nesting dies from the Eastern Medallion Thinlits and then I cut the medallion out with the largest of the scalloped dies in the Circles Layering Framelits.

Using the little three-dot image in the Eastern Beauty stamp set, I added the little embellishments in Lemon-Lime Twist.  And I added the little dotted circle image, too, also in Lemon-Lime Twist.

I made a mat for the medallion by cutting another of the largest scallop circles in the Circles Layering Framelits from a piece of Fresh Fig card stock.  When I glued the medallion to the mat, I offset the scallops so that the mat would be visible.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals (on the right side) and Liquid Glue (on the left side) and adhered it over the card front.

My sentiment, from Eastern Beauty, is stamped in Fresh Fig on Very Vanilla.  I inked one word at a time and stamped them in a single line (the actual image has the sentiment on two lines).  I covered the other word with a sticky note.

I cut the sentiment out with the small banner die from the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  Then I cut a second banner from Lemon-Lime Twist card stock and used the “frame” portion for my sentiment.  I adhered both the sentiment and the frame to a piece of scrap Very Vanilla card stock with Liquid Glue – that gave them something to hold the two pieces together.  Then I popped it over the medallion with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the three-dot image in Lemon-Lime Twist in the corners of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped it three times in each corner.

I matted the panel on a piece of Tranquil Tide card stock and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base (this is new – and available as a freebie in the Eastern Palace Premim Bundle!!).  Then I popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done! 🙂

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Eastern Beauty three-dot images in the corners…

…and some more of the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Eastern Palace is such a versatile Suite – I love all the combinations you can put together with the Eastern Medallion Thinlits!  You can even make a doily with them!  I hope you like – and will be grabbing up the Eastern Palace Premium Bundle today!  Remember – these special bundles will NOT be available again when the catalog goes live on 1 June.  So…if you don’t get it today, be SURE to get it before the end of the month, okay??  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Well, as I said first off, we didn’t go to the movie cuz we remembered obedience class was at 3 – no way to do the noon movie and get back.

So – Wayne and Finn did a little yard work!

Actually, as I look at the picture, I’m not really sure that Finn is DOing yard work as much as he is UNdoing yard work!  But – it looked like they were having fun!

Later he and I went to obedience class.  He was – once again – the teacher’s pet.  The one that did everything first.  Including a new game!

These are practice weave poles – the dogs are supposed to wind their way thru the poles.

We taught this using a treat in one hand.

Guess who’s mom was the only one with treats in her pocket??

I was pretty popular!  

And – now Wayne has another thing on his to-build list!! 😉

  1. Just beautiful, Mary. You really did this set justice with your lovely creation! 🙂

    Great card, Mary! I have yet to play with this set – need to get on it😳 So next you’ll have to make a video of Finn flying through those poles!!

    • Get on it, girl!! You’ll have a blast with it, I know. Flying Finnster. Just as soon as his mom gets her act together! I was all over the place with the leash and the treats and and and…but. I did get all excited and happy when he got thru, and so the teacher was happy with me! I was the kid who wanted to sit in the front row in school. So…I like the teacher to be happy with me!! Thanks, Elisha! 🙂

  3. Stunning! I’m so glad I have my set already!! You are a smart mom and a fantastic card maker. I love the feel of your card(s) in my hand. You’re right…it’s worth the extra postage.

    Well, once again you did a beautiful card, even though this suite is not my favorite. I fail to see why SU dropped the Special Reason bundle in favor of this one. Good to see Wayne able to do a little yard work…with ‘help’ of course!

    • Thanks, Julie. I really like this set – but I loved Special Reason, too! I’m greedy – I wish we had them BOTH!! I’m sure Wayne wouldn’t have been able to work without his helper… 🙂

  5. Very pretty Mary! Love the touch of Lemon Lime Twist and your designer paper mix is perfect! Cute picture of Finn and Wayne…can’t wait to see him racing through those poles. 🙂

  6. sweet card and design! I am so glad you played along with us at
    sunday stamps!
