It took me a little bit to figure out what I wanted to do with this set. It's probably not something I would normally order but once I started playing with it, I realized there were a ton of cool things you could make with the stamps and dies. The options really are endless with this set!
For my first card I used one of the Eastern Medallion thinlits dies as the focus. Now I thought this die was supposed to cut all the way through the paper and I thought I was having problems cutting it out because I was using the glimmer paper. Um nope, it's actually meant to pop out of the card like the picture below. BUT now you can see that you can cut it out as well and use it as the focal point. So 2 great uses for this die. Also, be sure to be gentle when pulling the dies off of the sheet as they are delicate and can bend easily.
This is how the die is supposed to look with the edges cut out. To separate it, cut between each point to make a medallion.
When you look at the close up, you can see that I used the Eastern Gold Vinyl stickers that will be available. There are many different stickers but I chose to use the strips. I then cut up one of the tassels from the Mini Tassels assortment and used the twine from that to layer in between the stickers. Then the bottom of the Fresh Fig cardstock was stamped with one of the images from the set in Fresh Fig ink. As usual I added sequins and dazzling details. I never thought I would use the dazzling details so much! HA!
For my next card I used this really pretty gold paper from the Eastern Palace DSP. I layered it on Tranquil Tide card stock. This color is sooooo pretty. For the sentiment I used the new Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide inks to make the ombre effect. First I stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist, then I used the sponge dauber to add the Traquil Tide ink. How pretty!
The medallion behind the sentiment is also from the new thinlits. There is a large circle thinlit to cut that fancy outside border, then I used a circle layering die to make it a circle shape. The finishing touches are sequins and a bow with the gold thread.
My final card is based on the ombre effect I did on the last card. I loved how the Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide looked together so I wanted to watercolor with them. I stamped 2 of the circles from the stamp set on watercolor paper in versamark and embossed with clear powder. Then I used my aqua painter to watercolor the background with Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim and Tranquil Tide. I used my aqua painter and Tranquil Tide ink to get the splatters.
So this time I cut a square out of black cardstock and used another of the thinlits to get the fun cut out look. See I told you the possibilities are endless with these dies and stamps!! The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder and I just die cut it with a circle layering die so I could pop it up on dimensionals. And more sequins were added!
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek! You will get lots of other fun ideas from the team, so make sure you go all the way through the hop!
