My grandson was over Wednesday and made a card he wanted posted on my blog.  His card is below.  He used the retired Gold and Silver Encore inks, the Lucky Stars embossing folder, and the You’re So Sweet stamp set.  This is the first card he has made since December.
Here is the next card he made.  This is my favorite of the two.  He used Powder Pink ink with Berry Burst and Powder Pink Markers and the Bloomin’ Heart stamp set.  The word at the top is Mama (which he calls me).  I do love the detailed outlining of the stamped images.

Eastern Beauty Stamped Background Card

This card features a Stamped Background using the Eastern Beauty stamp set available May 1st as part of the Eastern Palace Starter and Premier Bundles.  You can choose any two or three stamps and the same number of ink colors to make your Stamped Background.  You can stamp in a pattern as shown.  Or stamp randomly with stamped images overlapping.
Eastern Beauty Stamped Background CardThe next few weeks will feature cards made with the Premier Bundle and a few other supplies I could fit in my suitcase as I am at my parents’ house helping out.  My Dad has been in the hospital and was moved to rehab last night.  Yes, I actually made this card this morning with not nearly enough sleep.  I think it turned out pretty well.

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Eastern Beauty Photopolymer #143675
Inks:  Fresh Fig
Tranquil Tide
Lemon Lime Twist
Card Stock:  Thick Whisper White card base
Tranquil Tide from the Eastern Palace Card Stock Pack #144148
Whisper White
Punch:  Classic Label #141491
Other:  Stamping Sponge
Fast Fuse or SNAIL
Stampin’ Dimensionals

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  I used Thick Whisper White to conserve my colored card stock.
2.  Cut your Tranquil Tide card front layer at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Attach to card base.
3.  Cut your Whisper White at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Choose your Three stamps and three ink colors.  I used Tranquil Tide ink for the curvy square stamp, Fresh Fig for the larger flower stamp, and Lemon Lime Twist for the small center flower.
~Stamp your center stamp first-Curvy Square
~Now stamp your large Flower stamp on each side of the Curvy Square.
~Stamp the Curvy Square in the corners.
~Stamp the small flower in the center of the Curvy Squares and the large Flowers.
NOTE:  You can stamp your greeting in the center Curvy Square if desired.  I didn’t think about doing that until after I was finished stamping.
Your Background is finished.
4.  The stamp I used comes curved.  Straighten it out on a clear block, then stamp.  I used Tranquil Tide ink.
~Punch out with the Classic Label Punch.
~Sponge around the edges with Fresh Fig ink.
~Attach to card front with half Stampin’ Dimensionals.
NOTE:  I did not bring any sponges with me so I used some Kleenex wrapped around my finger to sponge the edges.  While this may seem cheaper, using a Kleenex instead of a sponge is harder to get the sponging effect I want.  The Kleenex also crumbles and removing the crumbles leaves ink smears.  Just so you know.  At least I remembered my Stamp Blocks this time.

You can get the Eastern Palace Bundles starting May 1st.
