Colour INKspiration – CI08 – Eastern palace Sneak Peek



Welcome to another Colour INKspiration Blog Hop and Challenge – where every second and fourth Wednesday of the month, a new Pinterest Inspired colour swatch will be uploaded to the Colour INKspiration Facebook Group, and the Colour INKspiration Design Team will get the ball rolling with a blog hop. You can join the challenge with your own creation – or just enjoy all the fab projects that are being shared!
I’ve been absent from the Blog Hop for a few weeks – life gets busy sometimes and the last couple of months have been for me. I’m excited to be back onboard this week!

You may be starting here – or you might have hopped on over from the talented Kelly Kent at  My Papercraft Journey  (wasn’t that pattern incredible!) – either way – WELCOME! Enjoy the Hop!

Our Pinterest Inspired Colour Swatch for Challenge #8 is:

I loved the picture and the colours for this challenge so really wanted to create something to share.

You’ve probably heard by now that there’s a new suite from the yet-to-be-released 2017/2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue that is going to be available for pre-launch purchase as a special pre-release bundle. The Eastern Palace Suite – stunning and it’s not until ou start playing with the stamps and dies that you realise how versatile this set is.


Trust me – you are going to want the bundle – so don’t miss out on the FREE gift you’ll get with the pre-release bundle. If you live in New Zealand and wish to order the bundle – please contact me (

Here’s Eastern Palace meets Colour INKspiration 08!


I loved making a random pattern with several of the stamp images and using this as a vertical band on my card that my diecut could overlap.

And look at that diecut! Woah – I’m loving this set already – and it’s only had one outing!

I love negative space  – and there are so many options for that with this set of thinlits!

I carried the random stamping through to the inside of the card too!
I’m looking forward to using this bundle heaps – both in card-making and memory keeping.

I will be doing a Classes-to-Go with the Eastern Palace Bundle – details will be available when early next week!

    Jackie I see you are loving the bundle as much as I am! I wouldn’t have thought to use the little images to make the insert panel or decorate the inside like you have … thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Wow, I love it!! I think I’m going to love all the cards made with these framelits!!

  3. Wow! Love every little detail you have added Jackie. Great way to show off your new goodies.

  4. A gorgeous project with the Eastern Elegance Bundle, Jackie. Love! D ♡
