Eastern Palace: From Simple to Sublime!

Oh my, I'm having SO much fun with the new Eastern Palace Bundle from Stampin' Up! In my last blog post, I posted several samples using a stamp from that set flipped over on the other side. Yes, I inked the side that normally adheres to the block! See that blog post here

I'm at it again. I woke up this morning with the idea of using a few of the circle-type stamps from that set in a similar fashion. I wanted to show how you could make a very simple card with those stamps and a stepped up version with a bit of watercolor. Both versions of each card were surprisingly quick to make!



For both cards above, I stamped the backside of the larger circle stamp with the new Lemon Lime Twist ink color. Then stamped right on top of that image with the reverse or intended image using Basic Black Archival Ink. I used Whisper White cardstock on the left card and watercolor paper on the right card. I used a bit of Lemon Lime Twist reinker thinned with water to color in the circles and add splatters to the card on the right. 


Used my favorite Classic Label Punch with a sentiment from the new set called Happy Birthday Gorgeous, which will be available in June from the new catalog. I using Lemon Lime Twist cardstock for the sentiment. It seemed to  keep the card clean and simple as intended. 


I wanted a bigger impact with the sentiment on this card, so I embossed the same image on Basic Black cardstock and embossed it with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. I love how both cards turned out!



I used the medium sized circle stamp for the next two cards. 



I used the Crumb Cake ink & reinkers for this project. Sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set (available in June). 



Clean and simple. Took about 5 minutes to make. 



The one above is probably my favorite out of all of these cards. It took about 12 minutes to make. I love how these circles look with the haphazard watercoloring. 



I hope I have inspired you to look at your photopolymer stamps a bit differently. 




I know how hard it is to wait for the new Stampin' Up! catalog to be released in June so you can order the all the new goodies. That's why I was so excited to find out that all of us, EVEN YOU can order new items early!
