Eastern Palace Sneak Peek - SU! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to another hop with the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team!  I'm so glad you stopped by today! We are a group of about 20 demonstrators from around the world that represent SU! and we hope that you are inspired by what we have to share with you today!

Here is a sneak peek of the Eastern Palace Suite!
Customers can begin to order May 1st. Exclusive for a limited time are the Starter and Premier Bundles, designed for both the beginning and avid crafters. 
Demonstrators can now preorder the Eastern Palace Suite Starter and Premier Bundles. Get your hands on these colorful and exotic products to prepare for customer launch May 1.

Sounds exciting right?

Here are the two cards I made for today's hop.  I was really tempted to share the other two cards that I made with one of the new in-colors - FRESH FIG - but decided on these two instead.  Plus, I may just share them later in the week - so make sure you check back.  For today, I really wanted to show you the intricate framelits and the vinyl stickers. I chose to pair both Copper and Gold with Dapper Denim.

For this card, I used 3 of the Eastern Medallions Framelits Dies to create this beautiful medallion.  You have a few options with the framelits and you can change them up to make different medallions each time.  Very cool!  I also stamped some dots around the medallion with Dapper Denim ink.

Behind the medallion is a piece of Copper Foil Sheets.  I love, love, love the way it shines through!

The sentiment was straightened out and stamped in the corner.  A simple 2-toned card - easy peasy!

For the second card that I made, I wanted to highlight these gorgeous Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers.  This card literally took me 5 minutes tops.  (I know this because my 6yo son asked me if I could just use the one card I had already finished and not make another... he was anxiously waiting to play hockey with me.)

These stickers made this card so simple and easy!

I added some coordinating Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper along the edge to tie in some more gold.  I finished the card off with some Dapper Denim 3/8" Ruched Ribbon. (My fave!)

The sentiment I bent a little to curve around the corner.  I love the photopolymer sets give you a little play to change things up a bit.  The sentiment comes curved, but as I posted on the first card, you can even straighten it out.

I cannot wait to see the other creations that my teammates have made!  Make sure to check out all of the blogs and pin your favorites!  We will be back again in May to show you even more Eastern Palace goodies, so be sure to come back!  If you're not a demonstrator and would like to know how you can get this bundle now - comment below!

Next up is the very talented Jennifer Sootkoos!  If you get lost along the way, you can always find our full blog roll of the ADT at the bottom.  Thanks again for stopping by!



  1. Your gorgeous medallion perfectly showcases how nicely these dies layer together and build on to one another. Just beautiful!

  2. These are so pretty and elegant Holly. My question for you is how did you get that perfect bow with the rouched ribbon? I feel like you must have a trick to share, as it is truly perfect! Awesome as usual!

  3. Oriental beauty!
    Both cards I like very much ❤️

  4. LOVE! The monochromatic look is perfect!

  5. So pretty! My set is on it's way! Yay!

  6. Beautiful cards one & all. Love, love, love.

  7. Love the tone on tone card with the pop of copper. Just shows this thinlit off perfectly! The stickers are a gorgeous addition on the Vanilla cardstock. Love both cards. Rochelle xo

  8. These are so pretty! Doesn't take much to make something beautiful with this stamp set, for sure! Also... how very Minnesota that your son was pushing you to finish for a hockey session! Ha!

  9. The presentation of the set is a very good idea Holly! I still lack time to do the same but it's so much more professional ...
    I like the second card and its mixing bands Gold and Denim Dandy. Simple and refined. Congratulations!
