Today over at SSI, our designers are sharing our favorite suite from the new catalog. The catalog was released to everyone yesterday...and I placed a huge order. I am so very excited about getting my goodies. We were only allowed to pre-order a select few items. So in selecting my favorite suite, I decided on going back to the Eastern Palace Suite. There is just so much to do with these fabulous products and I have 5 projects to share with you! First up is a thank you card highlighting some great DSP and the awesome thinlits:
The color combination here is so pretty, I just love Tranquil Tide with Dapper Denim. And those thinlits make the COOLEST die-cuts. I added a strip of the gold vinyl stickers for a touch of shine.
Up next is probably my favorite:
So these thinlits really do create amazing things. This card was so simple but I just love it. I did cheat and use the Gold Faceted Gems which are amazing!
Here is a card using a pop of the fun Lemon Lime Twist:
I love Lemon Lime Twist! And I love it paired with Dapper Denim with the gold accents. I let the DSP be the focus but did add some tone on tone stamping with the little fan element (which makes me think of mermaids). I decided to use my layering circle framelits and added some of the gold vinyl stickers to finish it off!
Here is a gift tag or bookmark:
I just wanted to have fun way to use those tassels! And again, those thinlits are so fun to play with!
And finally this card is me trying to creatively stretch a bit:
I love these two colors together. You will see me pair them up a lot I am sure! I made my own background by randomly stamping all the circle in the stamp set on Lemon Lime Twist in Fresh Fig ink. I used a scallop circle to cut out the intricate doily-like die cut. I added some of the Fresh Fig 1/2 inch cotton ribbon.
So have I convinced you to get these products yet? I swear I could spend all day in my craft room and create so many different projects with this suite. Right now I will say its my favorite. However when I receive my first order, that will change. Head over to SSI to see what the other designers picked for their favorite suite!
