Well Friday is here at last and here also are my final 2 cards that I made with the lovely Eastern Parade Bundle.
Let me remind you of the 2 bundles that will be available in my shop HERE on 1st May for you to buy.
There will be 2 bundles for you to choose from
<~~~~ On the left is the Starter Bundle which includes the Eastern Beauty stamps, 3 NEW in color ink pads!, Designer Series Paper and Vinyl stickers + a free gift of Very Vanilla Notecards (NEW product)
~~~~> On the right is the Premier Bundle which includes the stamps, matching thinlit dies, the card stock pack, the NEW incolor ink pads, Designer Series Paper, tassel embellishments and Vinyl stickers + a free gift of Very Vanilla THICK card stock and envelopes (NEW Product too!!)
So on to my cards for today - which are both Happy Birthday cards and again in a less traditional way to use this bundle.
This card shows some of the papers in the bundle with Dapper Denim cardstock and also here you can see one of those little tassels that you get in Premier bundle. Now I did not have any ribbon in the new Tranquil Tide in-color... but I did have white grosgrain and I did have a lovely fresh new ink pad, so after getting really inky and heat setting with my heat gun, I got a bow that was not perfect but nearly there! The sentiment is from Big on Birthdays stamp set and I got out my daubers and firstly rainbowed the DSP and then carefully rainbowed the stamp :) I love a rainbow.
You can see the rainbow DSP here - I love using the resist technique with foiled or embossed papers.
So on to card number 2
Now you won't see much Eastern Parade in this one.... but the background papers was made with the final new in-color that I have Fresh Fig and Blushing Bride inks. The 2 circle stamps are from the Eastern Beauty set and the little stars, balloons and ribbon are from Balloon Celebrations. The lovely Happy Birthday is again from Big on Birthdays.
I added some shading to the balloons firstly with the stamp and then with Fresh Fig and a blender pen.
So here you have it ladies, my take on Eastern Parade - a lovely bundle with lots of elements that you can use to stay traditional or be adventurous!
Again, please let me know if you have any question and I look forward to seeing your makes
Have a lovely weekend and see you next week
