Something exciting is coming! Who wants a sneak peek at the Eastern Palace Suite from StampinUp!???
Today my postman delivered a parcel to my doorstep bright and early, and in that particular box was a bunch of NEW STUFF! I have to tell you, there is nothing like getting exciting new products delivered to your door! I had an hour or so to spare so of course the very first thing I did was sit down to have a play. As we are officially in the demonstrator "pre-order" period (when Demonstrators are allowed to purchase new products before they are released) I am also allowed to show off what I am making with the new products. Even though customers cant order them until May 2017 (next month) its fun to show you what you will be able to make with these gorgeous new items when they are released!
Introducing the Eastern Palace Suite! StampinUp will be releasing these as special bundles for next month... there will be two bundles you can take advantage of.... a "starter" bundle (with the basics) and a "premier" bundle (with the lot!). Alternatively, you'll be able to purchase the individual items too... I'll have more details for you when it gets closer to May. But I really need to introduce you to my FAVOURITE part of this suite.. and thats the Eastern Medallions Thinlit dies. OMG... these are just beautiful! I love that there are co-ordinating shapes to match the stamp set, but most of all I love that this is a range of Mendala-like dies, some of which do partial cuts. By that I mean, that they don't cut all the way through your cardstock so that you can pop up parts of the image. You can see this in the picture below:
See how just the outside of the petals has cut through, but it's still attached at the base of the petals. This allowed me to flip the ends of the petals up so that they sit out from the card... I think its really effective! I've also used the new Gold Vinyl stickers along the bottom edge of the card. I added a little piece of gold foil behind the flower motif to make it stand out. The sentiment is from the co-ordinating "Eastern Beauty" stamp set... isn't the font lovely??
One other thing on this card is new.... I've featured one of the BRAND NEW IN COLOURS from the 2017-2019 In color range! Introducing Fresh Fig!
I hope you've enjoyed this sneak peek today! I will be featuring these products at my May classes, both in person and Online. So if you would like to be part of that, stay tuned for Class dates and details. :-) The new StampinUp Annual catalogue will be out on June 1st, so if you are one of my Online customers OR a stamp club member you will receive one automatically from me.
So much excitement is coming your way! I cant wait to share it all with you!
