Eastern Palace Suite!



The Eastern Palace Suite and NEW in-colors are AMAZING!

Get your hands on them before

the NEW catalog launches in June!

Contact me for details!

What are the NEW in-colors?

Every year Stampin’ Up! comes out with 5 NEW fresh, trendy, & vibrant colors, they stay for 2 years.

It’s so exciting, just like Christmas!

I am a kid at heart, aren’t I?!

I often gasp at the sight of the new colors & usually my mind wanders to how I can use them to create!

I LOVE COLOR, life is full of inspiring colors!


Do you want to see some more samples of the 3 out of 5 new colors I’ve been using?!

Here it goes… (I sound like my 3 year old boy as he lets his toy train drop down a steep slide)!


Tranquil Tide is the deep green found in the Peacock like patterned Designer series paper!


This card uses Fresh Fig as the paper and stamped flowers. Gorgeous color! So Regal, you’ll love it!


The Splashes of Gold are done with Embossing Powder.  No new colors here, but the Eastern Palace Stamp Set is featured.


These leaves are featuring Lemon Lime Twist! It’s such a “WOW” color isn’t it?!


I used the Fresh Fig tassel from the bundled suite and a splash of Lemon Lime Twist!


I used Lemon Lime Twist to water color inside the Flower.  It’s a perfect party and accent color.

I just love it! Beware, I will use this color often!!


I used my Aqua Painters to water color these cool flowers.  I blended the colors together.  This uses all 3 in-colors, just stunning!

All Done! I hope you liked my post.

I have more coming!
