PARTY PANDAS PAIR!

OK, I promise this will be the last Party Pandas card for a little while.  I’m sorry.  I really love these guys.  I wanted to show you this card and then I will move on.

The stamped pandas were left overs with trying to get my Peekaboo Panda card right.  You can see that card if you head back 2 posts.  Not wanting to waste them I cut the white stamped card down.  Layered it on a Silver Glimmer Paper scalloped Square mat.  This was cut with the Layering Square Framelits.  The Old Olive card was embossed with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.  The paper strip is from the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  The sentiment is punched with the Duet Banner Punch.  I wasn’t completely happy with how the sentiment looked but hey! I am trying not to dwell on things too much.  What do you think about it?

I hope you can get some Panda Action.  Don’t forget they are a free choice during Sale-A-Bration.

Have an awesome weekend.  I hope you get in some creating time for you.

NOW FOR MORE PARTY PANDAS!

I showed the Peekaboo Pandas in last post.  Let me say first, they have had a huge response over on Pinterest.  Lots seems to love those cute guys.  As I was making that card I was lining up the inside pandas in the wrong place.  I didn’t want to waste them as they were still OK.  Just not for the projects I was making.  So I have made up a couple more cards.  I will show you this one and then stop by again next post and I will show you the other one.

I coloured the balloon and the envelope with the Stampin’ Blends and the hat was coloured with the Stampin’ Write markers.  

I added some Calypso Coral Sheer Ribbon and the sentiment was stamped on Daffodil Delight and punched with the Classic Label Punch and also punched in Calypso Coral and Basic Black card and layered together.  Haha! I think it is the cute expressions on these guys that melt the heart do you think?

Enough from me today.  Thanks for the visit.  Enjoy the rest of your day.

PEEKABOO PANDA WITH PARTY PANDAS!

So have you checked out the new Occasions Catalogue yet?  What do you think??  What is your favourite?

What about Sale-A-Bration?? I couldn’t go past the adorable Party Pandas set.  So cute!!  I think it is going to be a very popular choice this year.  Of course, I had to use this set first.  This is one card I made.  I just have to show you it.

I call this my Peekaboo Panda card.

This is a Panel card.  I will explain how to make it further below.

This is the inside of the card.  Not just one Panda! Too cute. 🙂

To create the Panel Card:

1. On the front of the card base cut off at 3cm (approximately 1 1/4″) from the bottom edge.  Put that strip aside.

2. Again on the front of the card base cut off at 3cm (approximately 1 1/4″) down from the score line.

3. Cut 2 strips of Designer Series Paper (this one is the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper), just slightly smaller 2.6cm (approximately 1″) wide and 14.4cm long (In imperial make it slightly smaller the the width of your card base).  Adhere these one to the top section of the front of the card base and then one on the small strip that was cut off.

4. The panel stamped section is cut to your desired width you like.  I think this piece measured 6 or 7cm (3″).  Once stamped I matted this piece on a piece of Daffodil Delight and then on a piece of Marina Mist.

5. To assemble the card: Lay your bottom strip in place on the  bottom edge of the card base.  Place adhesive on the back of your panel piece ONLY at the top and at the bottom.  Adhere this on to the front of your card.

6.  To stamp the Panda in the right position on the inside, lay your Whisper White card mat in place inside.  Then mark where the right hand side edge of the panel is in either pencil or just by noting the placement, then open the card base and stamp your Panda in the right place.  I will be honest it did take a couple of attempts to get it right as I wanted the Panda to be peeking in the right place.  Don’t worry I used those “duds” for other cards which I will share at a later date.

7.  Colour your images with markers and add additional stamping where required.  For the balloon, I stamped it separately on Daffodil Delight scrap card.  Then I cut the balloon and raised it up off the card with Dimensionals.

This is the stamp set Party Pandas if you hadn’t seen it.  Isn’t it just the cutest?? AND you can get it for Free with a qualifying order – which is a minimum order of $90.

 

If you are in Australia and don’t have a current Demonstrator you can order in my store now -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code: 3CH4MBHU   

Thanks for stopping by.  I still have more Panda cards to come.

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

It is an exciting time on the Stampin’ Up! Calendar! The 2018 Occasions Catalogue starts today along with Sale-A-Bration.  So many wonderful, gorgeous new products.  I am still having trouble deciding on what some of my favourite products are but I will share a few with you.

In no particular order:

– Petal Passion Suite: This is an absolutely gorgeous suite.  (It might even be my Number 1!).

The Designer Series Paper is gorgeous.  It might be all black and white prints but it is all very striking – and you can colour it with sponges and ink or with the markers if you get bored with that.

The Stamp set and dies are beautiful.  Really.  I think a must have! Whether it’s the whole suite or pick out the stamps and dies bundle or the paper.

– Beautiful Day set.  Ok maybe this is Number #2.  I LOVE THIS! I can’t wait to play with it.  It has a striking butterfly stamp and flower stamp. Plus, you can team it with the new Brusho Crystal Colour powders for some fun colouring effects.

   

– Charming Cafe Bundle.  The stamps and dies work together to make some fun cards.  They work great to make Tri-fold cards.  I have been playing with this bundle lately so I will show you them soon.

– Cake Soiree  So many Options with this bundle for weddings or birthdays.  I love the intricate dies.

– Birthday Wit. What a fun set this is.

  

– Berry Burst Metallic Edge ribbon

– Whisper White Organza Ribbon.  So soft and easy to tie bows with.

You can now view the catalogues online – and order!!!

FAREWELL AVANT GARDEN!

I have my last Sale-A-Bration class on tonight.  I needed 3 cards.  Two of them I already had from past classes but I needed one more card.  I have been a little time poor this week with a few things going on so I headed to Pinterest – and that’s OK. 🙂

I wanted to showcase Avant Garden one more time and found THIS card by Lyssa on songofmyheartstampers.com  It is such a pretty card.  I think I am loving Sweet Sugarplum lately.

So I CASED this for the class tonight.

So farewell Sale-A-Bration 2017.  You have been fun!

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

ANY OCCASION SITTING HERE!

Last day for Sale-A-Bration tomorrow.  Unbelievable!  I can’t believe that we are 1/4 of the way through the year either.  Crazy!

I have had in mind for a few weeks to do this card but I wasn’t sure how it was going to work.  I managed to grab a little time yesterday to put it together.

I wanted to hang the banners from the Sale-A-bration set Any Occasion across the “ropes” of the bench on the Sitting Here set.  I was pleased that they actually fit.

Colours are Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe.  Three colours that will be leaving us at the end of May.  😦  You better stock up on these colours now.

I coloured the bench seat with the Inkpad and the Blender Pen. The cushion was stamped separately and coloured, then raised up off the card with Dimensionals.  The card layout is based on a Freshly Made Sketches #179 sketch.  I added some Silver Glimmer Paper down the side but thought it still needed something.  I then added a Baker’s Twine bow and a Rhinestone on the cushion.

Hope you like it?

Last orders will go in tomorrow night for Sale-A-Bration so don’t delay.

Keep dry if you are on the East coast of Australia.  It is a little wet around these parts.

THE VERSATILE AVANT GARDEN!

The Sale-A-Bration set ‘Avant Garden’ was one of my early choices.  I loved how versatile it was and I have seen so many different ways with it over the last few months.

Here are just a few more that was shared by Stampin’ Up! this morning.  I thought I would share them with you.

Create a wreath, or clear emboss them and give the card a wash with watercolour, or what about some Palm Trees?  I have been wanting to give that a go for a few weeks but time has been a bit short.

Only 3 days left for Sale-A-Bration.  Don’t miss out on getting your free choices.  If Avant Garden is not your choice there are so many other options and even some catalogue products.

Check them all out HERE.

Order Online HERE for those last minute orders.

HEY CHICK IS A WINNER!

The Hey Chick has been a popular choice for Sale-A-Bration.  Everyone loves these chicks with personality!

I haven’t got a chance to play with this fun set but I thought I would show you the great cards from Stampin’ Up!.

What do you think of these chicks??

They are a great set to colour with the Watercolor Pencils or your inkpads.

You still have a chance to get this set with your $90 order but don’t leave it too long.  Friday is the end. That’s it and these chicks then head home. 😉

MINI SCALLOP SQUARE CARDS WITH ANY OCCASION!

I have been making these mini Thank You cards recently for all my lovely customers who have placed orders with me during Sale-A-Bration.   I used one of the Sale-A-Bration sets ‘Any Occasion’ which I think is overlooked in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

The cards are about 7.5cm square (about 3″). They are quite simple cards cut with the largest Layering Squares Framelits.  I will show you how to do that below.

The left one is Watermelon Wonder with a little Blushing Bride for some banners. The right one is Bermuda Bay with a little Mint Macaron.  I added a bow with White Baker’s Twine.  I really should have added some bling I think???

To create your own Mini Scallop Square Cards:

Place the largest Scallop Square of the Layering Square Framelits on your folded card base so as the top edge of the framelit is just off the edge of the fold of the card. This will mean that the top won’t be cut through. See the photo above.

Run the card and Framelit through your Big Shot as you would normally.  Below shows how the card looks after cutting it.

Decorate the card as you like.  I also added a piece of card inside to write on.  They make quick little cards to give with a gift.
