OMG, these pandas are super cute. I can’t believe I didn’t like them when I first saw them in the Sale-a-bration (SAB) Catalog. What was I thinking? This is a project that Wendy Cranford designed for us to do at the meeting on Saturday. I just love the Glimmer Balloon, and now I finally have a reason to use those In Color Bows.
Our card base is Berry Burst and you can see peeking on top of that is a piece of the Picture Perfect Party Designer Paper. I used the ones with balloons. Then we stamped the panda in black on Whisper White cardstock, added the 2″ Glimmer Paper from the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper and topped it off with a Lemon Lime Twist Bow. Finished it off with the sentiment (comes in the Party Pandas stamp set) punched from the Classic Label Punch.
4 1/4″ x 11″ Berry Burst cardstock, scored at 5 1/2″
4″ x 5 1/4″ Picture Perfect Party Designer Paper
3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ Whisper White cardstock

This is a fun challenge! And the second project we did at the Luv 2 Stamp Meeting on Saturday. Have you seen the Silver Mini Gable Boxes on page 13 of the Occasions Catalog? They are thick and easy to put together. Plus they are soooooo easy to decorate. Take a look.
You can easily wrap a 1 7/8″ x 12″ piece of any Designer Paper around the box. We used the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. I added Fast Fuse to one section of the box at a time, then stuck the paper down, and moved on to the next section. This way you can make sure its going on straight. Also, its much easier to add the dsp & ribbon while the box is flat. The Shimmer Ribbon from Sale-a-bration (SAB) comes next. I used Calypso Coral. Next we stamped the heart from Heart Happiness and the sentiment from Sure Do Love You Bundle, both in Calypso Coral. Die cut the hearts & sentiment with the matching Lots to Love Box Framelits. The heart on the right is from the SAB catalog, Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper, on page 13 of the Sale-a-bration Catalog. You can get that paper for FREE when you place a $50. The striped Heart and Sentiment were added with Dimensionals.
Saturday I attended Patty Bennett’s Luv 2 Stamp Meeting in Richmond Ca. We all had such a great time. We did 7 projects all together and Patty did a demo using the Stamparatus. OMG! learned a few more things you can do with that awesome tool. Unless you reserved yours, you will have to wait until the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog comes out. Its worth the wait. Anyway, I was honored that Patty asked me to design one of the projects for our group. You can view my video at the end of this post.
I used the Bubble Over Bundle, Scattered Sequins Dynamic Embossing Folder, Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series paper, (SAB) Shimmer Ribbon Pack, (SAB), Tutti-fruitti Cards & Envelopes, (SAB), & the Tutti-fruitti Adhesive Backed Sequins. All new products from the 2018 Occasions & Sale-a-bration catalogs.
Doesn’t the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Embossing folder make the sequins look real? The first card I put the card base in upside down and my sequins were debossed, but it still looked great. I bet you want to know how I stamped the bottles……right? Check out my tutorial. Its easy!
Here is the video I did.
