This is such a cute card that was originally designed by my demo friend Darla Olson, so I had to case it for my workshop. She also added Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes to her card. Party Pandas is a FREE set with a $50 SAB order and it was one of the first stamp sets I fell in love with in the 2018 Sale-a-Bration catalog to earn free. The base of the card is the Sugarplum 2016-2018 In-Color that will retire in May of this year. It is such a beautiful color that I will miss it for sure. The designer series in the background is from the 6" x 6" Picture Perfect Party DSP on page 5 of the Occasions Catalog. It is such beautiful paper that I'm going to order more of it because I've used a lot of it already. The "celebrate" is die cut from the Celebrate You Thinlets Dies that can be earned FREE with a $100 purchase during SAB, but it will also appear in the next annual catalog that comes out in June. I didn't want to wait until June when I could earn it FREE. It comes with 3 dies. The other two dies are "amazing" and "you" and I know I'll be using those dies a lot on my cards. The other dies I used to create the heart was using the Sweet and Sassy Heart Framelits. The panda bear was stamped in the Memento Ink pad and fussy cut with the Paper Snips and attached with Dimensionals. I colored in his party hat with the new Stampin' Blends and then added a small piece of the Love Mini Tinsel Trim Combo pack on page 19 of the Occasions with a Glue Dot. Fray it out at the top of his hat. I think I'll try making another one with Bermuda Bay and one in Berry Burst.
February is half way through, and I haven't posted anything that I've created recently. However, I have been stamping a lot this month and last. This calendar was a big hit in January for my club members. It was inspired by Janet Wakeland, but I changed it up a bit. The stamp set is called Bubble Over and it comes with a Bundle to also get the Bottle and Bubbles Framelit Dies. The colors I used are Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, and Calypso Coral which are the colors in the Bottle and Bubbles DSP that can be earned from the Sale-a-Bration catalog if you place a $50 order. The little bottle cap was die cut out of the Silver Foil cardstock using the die. The Bermuda Bay Shimmer Ribbon is also from a pack in the SAB catalog that can be earned free. The self-stick calendars were ordered from www.vippies.com
This was a card we made at my club workshop on Sunday. I wanted my club members to make a Valentine and I thought the Bird Banters set would be a great idea. I also used Bubbles and Fizz DSP that I earned FREE with a $50 order. The cardstocks I used are Calypso Coral and Whisper White. The birds were stamped with Black Stazon and I used the Stampin' Blends to color them. I used both light and dark of Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie. The ribbon is the 3/8" Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon that is part of a package that I also earned FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration. The hearts are cut out from the Sweet and Sassy Framelits and the little heart is from the stamp set Heart Happiness. The banner is stamped in Calypso Coral and die cut from the Lots To Love Box Framelit Dies and attached with Dimensionals. My customers loved this card.
