Party Panda from Sale-A-Bration

Here's my take on the little balloon Party Panda from the Sale-A-Bration catalog 2018.  I used the wood paper dsp and the stitched framelets to build the boxes.  I did use the Birthday Delivery banner and the It's Your Big Day stamp.  I thought he needed to hold a sign along with his balloon.  Real Red seemed like the perfect pop of color. I thought the simple black and white combo for the Pandas needed a simple but striking arrangement and color scheme.

The 3D balloon honeycomb embellishment came from the 2017-2018 big catalog.  I still have some of the circles from the Honeycomb set with the little chick holding the balloon.  A cute variation that my daughter came up with for this card would be to use the "Hang In There" stamp from that Honeycomb set with the balloon Panda

I have a few other ideas for these adorable little Party Pandas that I will work on this week and share with you.  If you have created anything with this set I would love to see your work too!  Please feel free to message me pics or questions.  

Happy Crafting!



Beautiful Peacock Stamp Set Sale-A-Bration 2018

I always look the through the new catalogs from Stampin Up! and mark my favorite new products.  I'm sure many of you are the same way.  This stamp set, Beautiful Peacock, caught my eye but I wasn't really sure how to use it.  It wasn't sparking my creative side until I saw some samples of how others brought it to life.  Here are two samples of how to use it on a 3D project and on a card.  The use of color and the embossing really bring out this stamp set and I can't wait to get it!

This is one of the sets from Sale-A-Bration and is FREE with the purchase of a $50.00 order.  If you'd like to make a purchase you can visit the Shop Now section of my site.  And if you're in need of a demonstrator I am very happy to be of service!  I love what I do and I love sharing with you!

Happy Crafting!

Valentine's Day Frame

Ok so I've been doing Stampin Up! for a couple of years now and I have just discovered framing a stamping project.  I know I know I must not have been looking in the right places on Pinterest to find these beautiful examples of works of art but I stumbled upon them eventually and I have created my own.  I used the Sealed with Love Stamps set and die set from last years Occasions catalog.  I absolutely love that set and I don't think you can get it anywhere now so I apologize for it being a little out of date but I'm sure with your creative skills you will be able to make something equally as beautiful!  

I will try some different sets and see what I can come up with and I will share them soon!

BTW 2"x 2" square with 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" square inserts worked out perfectly for an 8 1/2" x 11" frame

Happy Crafting!
