Eastern Promise by Stampin’ Up!

Eastern Promise by Stampin’ Up!

I finally had the chance to play with Eastern Promise by Stampin’ Up! As a demonstrator we get some perks. The option to pre-order from new catalogues being one of them. So, I bought the whole Eastern Promise bundle, which will be available in the new annual catalogue. And I can tell you it’s lovely! I had fun playing around with options for this week’s colour challenge from Create with Connie & Mary. I was surprised that a few of my options turned out quite well with these colours. In the end though I stuck with my favourite which is as usual clean and simple.

I’ve been trying out my hand drawing mandalas on notebooks. I’m not confident enough to try out my own designs from scratch,  but I find ones I like on Pinterest and then follow them loosely, so this suite of products is perfect for me. The Eastern Medallions Thinlits dies used to cut the shapes above are beautiful. Some of the dies (like the one above) only partially cut out the shapes, whilst others cut out the shapes completely and can be layered with one another. Theco-ordinating Eastern Beauty stamp set contains simple shapes that can be used to decorate the die cuts.

I used Flirty Flamingo and Island Indigo for the stamping in the mandala and then used Tempting Turquoise underneath. I also added a strip of Island Indigo down the side as I wasn’t sure it was obvious enough I had used all 3 colours.

Well I hope you like my card! Please do pop over and see what the rest of the talented design team have come up with this week at Create with Connie & Mary!

  2. This is beautiful! I love this clean and simple look. I just ordered my stuff and am excited to play around it! The suite didn’t really appeal to me at first but the more I’ve seen done with it the more it grew on me. I love your project using the dies!

  3. So beautiful and I love the colors. It is amazing how a change of colora changes the whole effect of a stamp set from how we saw it originally. Just gorgeous.
