The Eastern Beauty stamp set and the whole Eastern Palace Suite is so full of possibilities! I know you have seen lots of ideas using the Eastern Beauty stamp set and framelits. Here's the first card I made using this bundle.
The only slightly tricky thing I did was to "straighten" out the sentiment. Since this is a photopolymer stamp set, you can manipulate the stamp a bit which is how I got a straighter sentiment. The stamp is actually shaped to go along the curve of a circle. Manipulating the stamp doesn't hurt the stamp and once the stamp is off the block it will return to its original shape. I really like the font used for the sentiments in this stamp set.
I used the color combination of Bermuda Bay and Berry Burst( a 2017-19 In Color). The ribbon is in the new catalog and is the 3/8" Mini Chevron ribbon. This new ribbon is available in Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive. It is a very easy ribbon to tie and is not bulky. The Berry Burst DSP you see is from the Color Theory DSP Stack. I also used a Berry Burst Glitter Enamel Dot for the center.
If you are interested in the Eastern Palace Suite there are 2 special bundles available only in May. Both of the bundles have free gifts available with your purchase. You can see all the details here.
