Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Party 6x6" paper pack meets Party Pandas stamp set

There are some beautiful bright happy paper packs in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue, but I think this Picture Perfect Party 6x6" pack of 48 sheets might be my favourite. There are 12 great 6x6" double sided designs, one side photo-realistic designs (doughnuts anyone?) and the other side more bright coordinating patterns. As with all our papers, they coordinate perfectly with our ink and cardstock. Each paper pack has the coordinating colours on the back wrapper (and it's also listed in the catalogue). 

The coordinating colours for the Picture Perfect Party DSP are: Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party and Whisper White.

I've used the paper in the bottom row, third from left in this card, as well as two of this years free Saleabration items, Party Pandas stamp set, and Celebrate You thinlits.

My coordinating cardstock is Pool Party, and my embellishments the silver trim Berry Burst ribbon from the Occasions Catalogue (so yummmyyy). I've also added in some of the Tutti Frutti adhesive backed sequins, and a die cut word from the Celebrate You thinlits. There's also a few bits of the Silver Bakers Twine tied around the knot in the ribbon.

For the Party Pandas, I have stamped in Memento Black, and then coloured in parts of the hat in Dark Pink Pirouette and Light Pool Party. I also water-coloured the bodies a little with Smokey Slate (making sure not to go too close to the stamped image or it would have smudged).

Stampin' Up! Party Pandas stamp set and Celebrate You Thinlits for Saleabration 2018 - Earn them FREE

Today I have a super fun card to show you using two products from the Saleabration 2018 catalogue. You can earn both the Party Panda stamp set and Celebrate You Thinlits die for FREE during Saleabration (along with lots of other choices). Read how HERE.

Isn't the panda the cutest? For the panda body, I added a teeny bot of colour with an aqua-painter picking up some of the ink inside the lid of my Smokey Slate ink pad. I then coloured parts of the party hat with the Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends marker. I then cut this shape out with my 2" circle punch.

My main card base is Bermuda Bay, and I have used one of the Petal Pair Embossing Folders (I used the other one in the set in my last blog post). I really like tis one as it kind of looks like the panda is up a tree! To get the window, I cut a 1 and 3/4" circle in the top half of the card, towards the left side. I positioned the panda piece beneath this window and adhered with snail adhesive.

To make the window border, I cut a circle from a scrap of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and then used the Starburst punch around the outside (it's much easier to get it the right shape if you cut the inside circle first like this). I then adhered this around the outside of the circle.

To finish the card, I added the word from the Celebrate You Thinlits (earn them as a level 2 choice during Saleabration), and some adhesive rhinestones. A pretty simple card, but I like how it turned out.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Congratulations from Occasions 2018.

Today I am showcasing the new Stampin' Up! Amazing Congratulations stamp set from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue which started today.

This set is perfect for a range of different congratulations cards - a new baby, a wedding, pregnancy news, work promotion, sporting or community achievement and much more. My cards are to congratulate some team members on their promotions and achievements - I need lots of these as a leader of a big active team.

I love the double and triple stamping options with this card, and the many different sentiments. This will be a great set to use with the Stamparatus, although I made these cards before mine arrived.

They are very simple, but the two tone word adds a little wow to the card. I have used a combination of Berry Burst and Calypso Coral for the first card, and Lemon Lime Twist with Tranquil Tide for the second card.
