Stampin’ Up has a new suite of products available called Eastern Palace, and from May 1st through 31st you can purchase them in two great bundles; a Starter Bundle and the Premiere Bundle.
Stampin’ Up was kind enough to send me a Premiere Bundle to play with. Here is a peek at what is included.
I’m loving the rich colors and patterns and found them perfect for a couple of masculine layouts I wanted to create about my son. I thought I would share those with you today!
I had so much fun using the papers stamps and dies on this page!
My favorite part of creating this layout was definitely working on this panel of accents. I used the dies and stamps to create multiple medallions and then arranged them in a diamond pattern above my title. I used foam squares to pop up the embellishments for lots of dimension and then added a few pearls from my stash to accent the center of each one.
The title was created with another set by Stampin’ Up called Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp Set. I used the Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide inks to create the letters.
I also added a few leafy branches from the Crazy About You Stamp Set. I used the Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist inks. The script words come from the Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set.
Here is one more angled look at the layout so you can see all of the delicious dimension on this one! 😀
OWEN’S BAPTISM DAY
For this second page, I cut the background paper in a classic artisan label shape.
I used the dies and stamps with the Tranquil Tide ink to create the medallion accents. I simply used a 3″ circle punch to punch around the circular die shape and then added them to my page.
I used the Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp Set again on this page to create my title. This time, I used the circular shape randomly behind the letters to add interest, and then cut around the title with a pair of fine-tipped scissors.
At the bottom right of my photos, I used the stamps and dies to create two more page accents. I loved layering the pieces up on one another using foam squares to give it lots of dimension, like I did on the previous page.
If you are always on the look out for papers with a rich or masculine feel to them, this may very well be the set for you! I think it would be perfect to use for Father’s Day projects, or even something for a wedding! Be sure to check it out!
