Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Lea Denton - Eastern Palace See Through Card

You know, one of the best things about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is all the wonderful people I've had the privilege to become friends with throughout the world. Sacha Van de Kerkhof aka Stampin' Sacha is now without a doubt my dearest and closest friend and I'm so pleased that she has agreed to be a guest on my blog again this week. Sacha has amazing talent and if you haven't already done so, you really should pop over to her blog and have a look around www.stampinsacha.com

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Stampin' Sacha - Eastern Palace See Through Card

These past few weeks Lea and I have been promoting the spectacular Eastern Palace Suite, which you can pre-order from the 1st of May! Today I've got another sneak peek for you, this wonderful See Through Card.

I've used a Very Vanilla Note Card with a Very Vanilla layer. I've cut a circle through both layers and adhered a bigger circle of Window Sheet in between. On top of the Window Sheet I stuck a gorgeous Gold Vinyl Sticker. Easypeasy!

I've used two different stickers. On the right photo you can see the sticker I've used during my video tutorial. Because of the colourful background you can see very well that you can see through the front of the card. Isn't that amazing?!

This card isn't hard to make at all, as you can see in my video tutorial. But the result is so pretty. The Eastern Palace Suite has got endless possibilities with the stamp set and the thinlits. You can combine and play with the thinlits for ages! You can read the last blog post about this suite here.

Eastern Palace Suite for the Global Design Project #GDP084

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Lea Denton - Eastern Palace Suite for the Global Design Project #GDP084
          

This week's Global Design Project is a great one... CASE the Designer!  Now usually, in the Stampin' Up! crafting world, CASE would mean 'Copy And Share Everything' however in this instance, it is 'Copy And Selectively Edit'.  And the Designer we've been asked to CASE?  Only the fabulous Michelle Last!  You can see Michelle's card above with mine next to it... I've changed the colours (obviously!) and gone for a opulent theme rather than naturalistic but other than that it's pretty much the same - oh except I moved the sentiment!


     

I've used some of the new suite of products that Stampin' Up! have released from the upcoming Annual Catalogue.  The suite is called Eastern Palace and you can order it as early as 1st May.  You can see more about it HERE and HERE.  Wondering why the Sharpie's are in the photo?  Scroll down a bit and I'll tell you :)

Included in the Eastern Palace Suite are some absolutely beautiful VINYL stickers.  Not the usual peel off stickers but actual super high quality vinyl stickers.  To make the flower you see in the frame I put one of these stickers on some Melon Mambo Cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot.  The die is a perfect match to the sticker shape and due to it's design, leaves a small tab at the bottom of each petal so you can lift the inner or outer to create petals.  I wanted to add a gem to the centre of the flower but a standard diamond one just didn't look right - Sharpie's to the rescue! Using bright green followed by yellow I was able to get a pretty close match to the yummy new In Color Lemon Lime Twist I'd used to back the flower with!
