So welcome to another ESAD Blog hop. Make sure you visit all the blogs in the hop to see the wonderful inspirational projects which can be made with this suite.

My project is a box using the Eastern Palace Suite products. The box measures 4″ x 4″ and is 1 1/2″ deep or 10cm x 10cm and 3.8cm deep. The instructions are below:

 

Here’s another view which shows the centre embellishment a bit clearer:

I have added Eastern Palace Suite DSP to the inside of the box, so it not only looks beautiful on the outside but on the inside as well.

Measurements

  • Box Top – cut card at 7″ x 7″ or 17.8cm x 17.8cm
  • Box Bottom cut card 6 15/16″ x 6 15/16″ or 17.7cm x 17.7cm
  • Designer Series Paper – cut 2 of 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ or 9.5cm x 9.5cm
  • Designer Series Paper – cut 4 of 3 3/4″ x 1 1/4″ or 9.5cm x 3.2cm

Instructions for the Eastern Palace Suite Blog Hop box

  • Score top and bottom of box at 1 1/2″ or 3.8cm on all four sides and burnish score lines with bone folder
  • Adhere 1 of the 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ or 9.5cm x 9.5cm pieces to what will be the inside base of the box so you see DSP on the inside when you open the box.
  • Adhere 1 of the 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ or 9.5cm x 9.5cm pieces on top of the box lid
  • Place one of the 3 3/4″ x 1 1/4″ or 9.5cm x 3.2cm pieces on each side of the box top with Multipurpose Liquid Glue
  • Snip corners along score lines to the score line (see template below)

  • Use 3/4″ Circle Punch to punch a half circle in 2 opposite sides of the lid for ease of opening and closing
  • Adhere Box corners together to form the box lid and bottom
  • Die cut the large ‘flower’ thinlit with gold foil and use snips to cut the parts which don’t cut
  • Die cut the circle framelit with Fresh Fig Card stock, then die cut again with a Layering Circle
  • Adhere one of the Gold Foil motifs to Fresh Fig card stock and then die cut with a Layering Circle. Place Dimensionals under this piece and adhere a tassel to one of the Dimensionals then adhere this piece to the next largest piece and continue adhering pieces with Dimensionals until all pieces are together then adhere to box top

Technique Class Sneak Peek

Technique Class Sneak Peek On Saturday I’ll be having another monthly Technique Class where the ladies will be learning a few ways to use the Stamp-A-Ma-Gig tool to make cards. I thought I’d share one of the cards with you today as a bit of a Technique Class Sneak Peek.

We used some Designer Series Paper from the Serene Scenery DSP Stack as the basis for our card and we all need ‘Thank You” cards from time to time.

It’s a bit hard to see in the photo, however we used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to give our sentiment a shadow with the Whisper White Craft Ink. The Stamp-A-Ma-Jig is an invaluable tool for all stampers.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.

Freshly Brewed Projects Retired Stamps

Freshly Brewed Projects Retired Stamps “All good things must come to an end”, penned by Geoffrey Chaucer in his poem Troilus and Criseyde. This time every year Stampin’ Up! are about ready to release a new catalogue, so many products become retired. Today the Latte Girls are focusing on Retired Stamps and whilst you need to buy products while stocks last, many are still available at bargain prices.

Make sure you visit the other blogs in the hop:

I decided to use one of my favourites from the Occasions Catalogue called Carousel Birthdays. Here’s my card:

I have loved this set and used it for many cards. It’s easy to create a bit of a carnival scene; water colour; use Watercolor Pencils with; birthday cards; 3D projects and much more. I’ve used the Carousel Horse on a piece of Very Vanilla card which I used for the inside of the card. I also stamped it a couple of times on the envelope.

Carousel Birthdays Stamp Set

Freshly Brewed Projects Retired Stamps aims to give you some inspiration to use some of these retiring products. Here’s a closer look at the sentiment piece:

I stamped the Carousel Horse in Sahara Sand ink, randomly on the Very Vanilla card stock. The sentiment from the set is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies. The Designer Series Paper comes from the Cupcakes & Casrousels DSP Stack plus a strip of Bermuda Bay. A Lace Doily (white side showing) is adhered to the sentiment piece and those two pieces adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

High Tide Again

High Tide Again. When you make one card using a set, why not make a second while you have the set out? Right? So, that’s what I did here. I made one yesterday for the Latte Girls Freshly Brewed Blog Hop yesterday. Here’s a close up view of the Lighthouse.

I’ve stamped the Lighthouse in Marina Mist using both the shadow and whole image stamps available in the set and then hand cut the Lighthouse and mounted it on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Oval piece is die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

I’ve used two pieces of the Serene Scenery Designer Series paper Stack which retires at the end of May (and is only available while stocks last). I’ve matted the lager piece on Basic Black and adhered the second smaller piece with liquid glue.

I built the ‘scene’ on the oval, once it had been die cut. I’ve used Crushed Curry, Crumb Cake, Island Indigo and Early Espresso to do this.

Global Design Project 084 Case the Designer

Global Design Project 084 Case the Designer. This week’s challenge is CASE the designer, the wonderful Michelle Last.

Such a beautiful card with gorgeous colouring of the bird. Make sure you stop by the Global Design Project to see the inspiration of the Design Team and see all the challenge entries.

I decided to use the Lift Me Up bundle along with the Woodland Textured Impressions Folder for my entry into the challenge.

 

I stamped the images first before running the card stock through the Big Shot with the Woodland TIEF. I’ve die cut the large balloon with Copper Foil. Here’s a closer look:

I stamped the sentiment on Very Vanilla and used the Layering Circle Framelit Dies to die cut it and die cut the ‘frame’ in Bermuda Bay.

Now don’t forget to pop on over to the Global Design Project Blog to see all the inspiration there.

Baby Wipe Technique Video

Baby Wipe Technique Video. This is my version of how to do this technique which has been around for a long time. Although the photo of my project doesn’t show the differences in colours much, the actual project looks amazing using this technique.

Don’t miss another of my technique videos
Thank you for subscribing. I appreciate your support.
Did you like my version of this technique? I think I’ll try it again with some varying colours next time instead of mostly greens where it is hard to see in the photograph how well it turned out. Here’s the card I made with the sample I made in the video:
So, make sure you give this technique a try and let me know how you go. I’m going to do another card and will feature it in a future post.
