In case you haven't yet checked it out, please take a minute to click on the promo button to the left that says 15% Off Selected Stamp Sets (unless, of course, you're a demonstrator because you already know all about it!).

Eastern Blooms just happens to be one of those sets and it just happens to be one we received at Convention, so I am happily able to post a few projects with this set. Don't worry, I'll be making more, but here's what I've got so far...

Both of these cards have entirely different looks but are made with the same set. The first also includes 2 of the new In Colors, Riding Hood Red (stamped off for the center flower) and Pink Pirouette. Just to show how nicely our older In Colors can look with the new ones, I've also used Buckaroo Blue on this one. The chocolate dotted paper is from the new Bella Rose DSP which is just a gorgeous collection! And don't overlook the punched scallop border punch that is brand-spankin'-new!

The second card is a funky combination of colors, Elegant Eggplant, Taken with Teal and Kiwi Kiss. I've also used the Sale-a-Bration Happiness Rub-ons in case you still have some lying around, and the 5 petal punch as well as a rhinestone brad that are still available. (A complete list of supplies will be listed below.)

I also wanted to post this picture of all the make-n-takes we were able to complete at Convention! You may have seen them posted all over the net already, but hey... Four of these projects actually feature this Eastern Blooms stamp set as well. The turquoise card on the left is made with the Classy Brass that coordinates with this set called Floral Frenzy on page 191 of the new Idea Book & Catalog. Directly below that is a really cool bookmark we made with a chipboard frame and some of the new Filigree brads (p. 184- check it out, you gotta have those babies!) and then the little mini album to the right of the bookmark. It is adorable and simply to make using a few 3x3 envelopes. Finally, the card to the right of that is made using a rub-on that matches this set called Hidden Garden on p. 178.

If you have questions about any of these other projects feel free to post a comment or email me, I'd be glad to answer!
