ROYAL BLOG TOUR

I am so excited to be showcasing the stamp set Asian Artistry on this tour. This stamp set is a Level 2 hostess set and can be found in the new Stampin' UP! Idea Book and Catalog 2009-2010.I just love this set and I know that you will just love it too! It has such a peaceful and serene feel to it. The samples made with this set include the use of the new In Colors along with some old favorites.

This first card could be used for any occasion. I used Bermuda Bay, Green Galore and Whisper White cardstock. Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry Markers (yes, that is right. Stampin' UP now has markers for their In Colors), and Green Galore classic ink. This card also features the new Crushed Curry Polka-Dot Ribbon (this ribbon has polka dots on one side and is plain on the other. It is like having two different ribbon choices). The technique used is Faux Silk.


This next card uses Taken with Teal and Whisper White cardstock. Inks used were Taken with Teal, Basic Gray, and Basic Black. I used the scallop punch, Basic Black 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon and a Filigree Designer Brad. Don't you just love the brad? It really adds a special touch to the card. The technique used is called Depth of Field.

This next card can also be used for all occasions. I used Dusty Durango and Very Vanilla cardstock. Soft Suede, Dusty Durango and Bermuda Bay Markers were used to color the stamps. Once again, I used the new Polka Dot ribbon but this time I used it in Soft Suede. I used a Silver Jumbo Grommet to accent the ribbon.I can tell that Soft Suede is going to be a favorite color of mine and will get used often!
Remember at the beginning when I said that you would love this set? Here is another reason for you. Not only can you use this set for cards, you can also use this set for a present too. Who wouldn't love to have a set of these?






These tile coasters definitely have the WOW factor. Each coaster features a different stamp from this set. Just imagine wrapping some of that gorgeous ribbon around them and giving them as a hostess gift or a birthday gift. The list can go on and on.

Please be sure to bookmark my blog or sign up for the feed. I would also love for you to sign up for my newsletter. Each month you can read about specials, techniques and projects. Don't forget to come back on July 29th for more details on these projects.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you enjoy the tour.
