Panda Love

I have a warm and fuzzy Panda Love for you today.  These little guys are so cute and so easy to work with that I could not resist another quick card.

 

Stampin' Up! Party Pandas Jackie Beers, stampinup, party pandas, jackiebeers

Party Pandas, 147221

 

The Party Pandas set is a Sale-A-Bration set.  You can get it FREE, with the purchase of $50.00 from the Annual or Occasions Catalogs.  Besides the panda, the second star of the card is the Painted With Love Designer Series Paper.  I could use this paper every day!  It is beautiful on each side of every sheet.  I don’t think I have ever said that before.

The “Love” on the envelope is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.  There are a couple of small words from that set that fit perfectly on the little envelope.  Obviously the color inspiration came from the DSP.  I love Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo would not normally put the two together.  But WOW!!,  I love them together with this small piece of paper that combines both.

The other highlight of the card is the Glitter & Clear Shapes.  I used the small round ones for the Panda’s eyes.  It gives it a 3-D look and makes the stand out.  The hardest part of this card is cutting all the layers.  I have provided the measurements that I used below.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I appreciate the lovely comments and am happy to answer any questions you have.

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Rich Razzleberry base is cut to 11 X 4 1/4 and folded in half for a top fold card
  • The two larger pieces (Melon Mambo and DSP) are cut to 2 1/2 X 4 each
  • The two larger Basic Black pieces are cut to 2 5/8 X 4 1/8
  • The Whisper White piece is cut to 1 7/8 X 2 5/8
  • The small Basic Black piece is cut to 2 X 2 3/4

Birdy Love

The Bird Banter stamp set is such a fun set to use.  There are so many possibilities.  Today I made an unusual pairing that are young at heart.  I say that because of their funky hair colors !!  I took quite a bit of artistic license in my color choices.

Can you see the blue tipped hair on the cockatoo?  I say there are no rules in our color choices, or hair styles!!

The Painted With Love Designer Series Paper is still the star of the show.  It was also the color inspiration for the most part.  The Pool Party was an add on.  I colored with the Stampin’ Blends again.  I am so in love with these pens.  They are the easiest to color with.  I am definitely no expert, so this shows how forgiving they are to work with.

The balloon is stamped and cut from a small scrap of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  Never throw away your scraps, but especially DSP scraps.  They are perfect for small accents.

This is a 4 X 4 card that is very quick to complete.  It would be great to make a set with the different birds from this set. Hhhmmm……I may have to do that.  Stay tuned.

 

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Rich Razzleberry base cut 8 X 4 and folded in half
  • Very Vanilla layer 3 3/4 X 3 3/4
  • DSP layer 3 5/8 X 3 5/8
  • Rich Razzleberry center layer 2 5/8 X 2 5/8
  • Very Vanilla center layer 2 1/2 X 2 1/2

 

Thank you so much for visiting with me today!  I hope you enjoyed this card.  I would love to hear from you.  And if you do not have a current Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would be happy to get you the current catalogs.  I would also enjoy talking with you about becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  The next paragraph mentions some of the wonderful reasons to consider this.

January Pals Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals January 2018 Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “From the Heart” featuring heartfelt projects like Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Get Well and Sympathy. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

For today’s blog hop, I went with bright colors and gold embossing on a  Valentine’s Day card.  This Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is the star though.  It is even prettier in person.  Because the paper is so beautiful, I went with a fairly simple layout.

 

Stampin' Up! Sure Do Love You, Jackie Beers, stampinup, sure do love you, jackiebeers

Sure Do Love You, 145766

 

All of the stamps I used are in the new stamp set “Sure Do Love You”.  The floral heart did not catch my eye at first.  But when I started thinking of the card, I knew it was perfect to surround the sentiment.  And with the gold foil in the DSP I had to emboss the floral heart with gold as well.

 

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

I stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry.  The little “always” is stamped in Melon Mambo and die cut using the Lots To Love Box Framelit.  These are matching framelits for the stamp set.  Purchased as a bundle, you save 10% on this fabulous stamp set and extremely versatile set of framelits!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the post.

Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on February 14, 2018. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We really like that.

A Little Hedge Hug

The stamp set I used today is a playful set that is super cute.  I did not do it justice.  But the sentiments and characters are pure magic.  This is a super quick and easy card.

I should have masked the top of the stump, but I hope you can see how cute this little couple is.  I stamped them with Soft Suede and then colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  The little flower is colored with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Thank you for visiting today!  I very much appreciate you checking in.  I love to read your comments.

Reminder:  There are only two days left to place your reservation for the stamparatus.  You will receive it before it goes live in the 2018 Annual Catalog in June.
