New Video: How I Store My Dies!

Dies, dies, dies ~ we love them, don’t we? And on May 1st you are going to be able to order the fabulous Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies as part of an early release bundle offered by Stampin’ Up! (yeah, yippee!)

So I made you a little video showing how I store my dies! It’s not a professional video, I’m just learning, so please bear with me 🙂

What do you think of the Eastern Medallion Thinlits?  Aren’t they cool? I wanted to give you a little sneak peek because they aren’t like any dies I’ve ever seen! We are going to have lots of fun with these!!

Look closely at the photo above. The large gold circular pattern is a new vinyl sticker that comes with the bundle. Then inside that is the die. See those neat “petals”? They pop up off the page!!

Please stop back by because I’m going to be showing you more cards using these dies. Actually, I have barely started playing with them!! 🙂

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my little video. I’m going to try to do more for you, and hope to get better!

Also, be sure to sign up for my FREE newsletter. Every newsletter comes with at least three FREE project tutorials ~ my gift to you for signing up!!

New Eastern Palace Suite Available May 1st!

Today’s card was created with some of the fabulous items from the new Eastern Palace Suite. I’m so loving this suite!  It’s going to take all of us quite a while to exhaust all of its possibilities!

The rich color I’m using is the new 2017-2018 In Color, Berry Burst. I’ve done a watercolor wash with my Aqua Pen to really show it off.  And, it blends beautifully with our bright yellow Daffodil Delight!

  • The card base is Whisper White with a panel of Daffodil Delight on top. The next layer of patterned paper is the new Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack.
  • Then we have a panel of watercolor paper with a little row of the fabulous Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers (love, love, love!!)
  • The “smile” sentiment and the circle are from the Eastern Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used the 2″ Circle Punch to punch that little guy out.
  • A bit of 1/4″ Gold Natural Trim is wrapped under the circle, along with some Gold Thread.

GET IT EARLY!  On May 1st, Stampin’ Up! is releasing to customers two bundles from this new suite. That’s one month prior to the release of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog!  You can buy these bundles early!!  And, each bundle has FREE GIFTS! Whee!  See the details below.

New: Eastern Palace Suite! (GDP082)

Just have to show you these beautiful new colors and an EARLY RELEASE bundle:  the Eastern Palace Suite! You can get your hands on this fabulous bundle on May 1st and you are going to love it!

The design of today’s card is from this week’s Global Design Challenge.  It’s such a nice sketch!

Let me describe all the new fun items on this card!

First:  You are looking at two NEW fabulous 2017-2019 In Colors:  Powder Pink and Berry Burst!  And don’t think this Powder Pink is any old pink ~ it’s really a neutral! It’s very light and soft. You can see in the photo below that it’s even lighter than my nail polish 🙂

Second: These new Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies are AH-MA-ZING!!  Do you see the Powder Pink piece in the center?  It’s so neat with the little “petals” coming out from around the circle! And there are even more intricate dies in this set.

Third: The sentiments in the Eastern Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set are great. Some of them are shaped in a semi-circle so they can go on the inside of this circle.

Fourth:  Gold Vinyl Stickers!!  Yes, stickers! Do you love this large sticker on today’s card?  All I can say is WOW!  I have plans for these stickers…on my planner, notebook, ….  🙂

So, are you excited?  I am!  I have just barely touched all the possibilities of this bundle.  Well I’m really excited for YOU to be able to order this on May 1st!  It’s a pretty big deal that Stampin’ Up! is releasing this set early, one month before the new annual catalog comes out!

Speaking of the annual catalog, you are going to love it! I send FREE catalogs to all my customers. If you have ordered from me in the past year, you will be getting your catalog in the mail before June 1st.
