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.

Picture Perfect Party DSP

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).

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! Saleabration Catalogue Sneak Peek - Party Pandas

A little sneak peek for you today. The new 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue and Saleabration promotion kick off on January 3rd (get your paper copies HERE)

Panda

Doesn't he just scream 'happy'? To create the silver glimmer circle I just used two Layering Circle Framelit dies.  I chose my colour palette based on the Designer Paper I have used, which is the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper in the Saleabration catalogue. I love the bright happy colours in this paper - Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist. The cute bubble stamps come from the Bubble Over Stamp Set which is a new one in the Occasions Catafalque that coordinates with the Saleabration paper.

Panda 2

Stampin' Up! Just Add Color DSP with Stampin' Blends

 

A few weeks ago I had a play doing some colouring with the new Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Instead of colouring stamped images, I used some 6x6 pieces of Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper. his is a heavy weight paper already printed with lots of great images, and the Stampin' Blends work beautifully with it.

I recently turned the colouring into cards, and here's what I came up with.

Colours in this one are Smokey Slate base card, with Pool Party and Calypso Coral. I used the Pool Party, Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends, and finished off with some Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon (just LOVING this ribbon recently).

This one was Smoky Slate base, with Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. My greeting is from Window Shopping stamp set.

For the label, I extended the length of the Everyday Label punch, and popped an embossed circle behind for some balance. Like how that turned out. I think this one migt be a good card for a male family member or friend.

I love succulents and was happy how this one turned out. Base card is Old Olive embossed with Petal Burst embossing folder. I have used Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party and Smoky Slate Stampin' Write Markers.

Art with Heart October Team Blog Hop: Patterned Paper

Today it's time for out Art with Heart team monthly blog hop.

Tonight the Art with Heart team girls are sharing some wonderful ideas to inspire you with our Designer Series Papers. This month is the start of the new Stampin’ Up! year and we have a special promotion on our Designer Series Paper, buy 3 get 1 FREE for the month of October and there is no limit!

Today I am showcasing the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, which is just beautiful. I have made a card and a double page scrapbook layout using the papers. Lets start with the card.

The sunflower paper is probably my favourite sheet in the 12 double sided paper pack. I love the colours in it, and it coordinates well with the Painted Harvest stamp set. I have used the three leaf stamp (coordinates with the new Leaf Punch too) for some extra foliage. My other flower is just cut from the patterned paper. My greeting is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set and is stamped on Early Espresso onto a Very Vanilla circle cut from the Stitched Shape Framelit.

This picture shows some additional texture I added with the burlap ribbon and gold mini sequin trim.

Next up we have the double 12x12 traditional scrapbook page. This paper is amazing for nature photos and as it has the colours of the sky and plants and flowers in it. Some of the papers in this pack are definitely great for base pages as well, then you have all the other coordinating papers to embellish (I just used a total of three of the patterns in this page).

This was a memory I definitely wanted to record. Our first visit back to Marysville since the town was wiped out and many people died in the 2009 bushfires. It was great to see the town was rebuilding and to see the beautiful statue in the park about new beginnings.
