Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop - Eastern Beauty

Hello, and welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Blog Hop featuring the stamp set Eastern Beauty.  I am so excited to see everyone's creations using this set.   The possibilities are endless!  The thing I love most about the hops with the "Crew" is that you can always go to the "Home" link and look up all the creations at a later date.
This stamp set also has a set of matching Thinlit Dies which makes cutting out the shapes a breeze.
If you are following the hop in order then you have just arrived from the very talented Holly's Blog: Rubber Redneck .  I loved her take on this set, didn't you?
Let's take a look at my creations.
My first project I created was a simple "hello" card.  Using the new Blendability Markers  I had a lot of fun coloring the flower centerpiece.  I then cut it out using the matching Thinlit.  I backed it onto a circle stamped in the fun black outline circle stamp.  Card color choices included Pumpkin Pie and Peekaboo Peach with Whisper White to stamp my images on.  I added a Black Rhinestone to the middle of the flower to finish it off.  Simple and sweet.
My second card was a bit stepped up as I embossed the Pumpkin Pie cardstock with the Garden Trellis Emboss Folder.  I used our Stitched framlits to help draw attention to the phrase.  I again added the 6 sided flower but this time added a fun curly "q" heart to each petal, making it a bit more fancy.  I then added a few mini Gold Sequins to my phrase circle to add a little glimmer.
Here's a close up of the flowers.
I do have to admit to you that at first glance I really didn't think much of this set except for a couple of the sayings.  So that's why I bought the set.  But then I saw all the beautiful things people were creating with it and went ahead and purchased the Thinlits after the fact. 
I want to thank you for stoppping by and checking out my creations and hope that you will continue on the hop by visiting ever so creative Lou's Blog: With A Bow On Top By Lou .  I can't wait to see what she has created for us!  Have a great day everyone!
