Eastern Beauty

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.
