Picture Perfect Party Suite Day 1

Monday, January 22, 2018
Today I wanted to start a week long post featuring the PICTURE PERFECT PARTY SUITE.
You will see how quickly you can put your cards together using the very cool 6x6 PICTURE PERFECT PARTY Designer Series Paper Stack and the PICTURE PERFECT BIRTHDAY Stamp Set.
Here is a video for you to watch and see all the amazing products in this this product suite.
Then scroll down to see some cute cards that I made AND an important message
Click HERE to go directly to my blog post (if you are getting this through your email feed) to view the video.

This first card is so so cute (inspired by  ) because everything is cuter with a little panda on it!
I had to tease you with cute little Boa Boa the panda. We bought him at the National Zoo in Texas on one of our Stampin' Up! trips
 Inside
How adorable! The prints are so vibrant, and what a fun card! Sometimes it can be hard coming up with kids or teen cards and this would be perfect!!
A second card combining the Panda Party Stamp Set from Sale a bration that you can get for FREE with a qualifying purchase. Inspired by Patty Bennett. This card features more of the stamps instead of the Designer Paper.  What cute noise makers!! - and of course, everything is cuter with a little panda on it.
The 6x6 Designer paper comes with the  bolder prints on one side with more subtle on the flip side like these stripes.
Card Inspired by Mary Fish
Now I will share with you an important message...
I was really looking forward to the Paper Ribbon but this is what Stampin' Up! has told us...
At the end of November, we (Stampin' Up!) posted a current update about Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon (145502) being unavailable for preorder due to environmental audits halting production of thousands of factories across China. Unfortunately, we—along with many other businesses worldwide—have continued to experience delays in production. As a result, we've decided the best course of action for you, your customers, and our company is to remove this item from our product offering.

Janell also loves the LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL Stamp Set.
After watching several youtube videos she has declared this to not be as difficult as it may first appear.

Team Make 'n Takes

Thursday, January 18, 2018
Today's share is the 2 cards that I prepared for the team Make 'n Takes
I was blessed to be on the design team for the STAMPARATUS so I was able to get mine early and show the gals how to use it.  I know that they are excited to get one of their own too.
I chose to feature this card (inspired by Kelly Acheson) because it also features my favorite little Party Panda!! One of the stamp sets that you can get for FREE with a qualifying purchase
 They could choose to make it in Berry Burst or Lemon Lime Twist
 Inside:
The little "Happy Valentines Day" is from TEENY TINY WISHES
This stamp set is chuck full of little sentiments for all occasions like this, and a must-have for your card making.
On the front of the card the sentiment comes from the stamp set LOVELY INSIDE AND OUT

We went over several tips on the Stamparatus that I have learned along the way.
1. The Stamparatus is perfect for these pandas because if I don't get the panda black enough all I need to do is re-ink my stamp and it is already lined up and I get a perfectly crisp image.
2. Sometimes (many times) I stamp my Sentiment crooked and I always blame it on my astigmatism, but... my sentiments are still crooked.  I can lay out my stamp where I want it and by protecting my card stock with a sheet of acetate I can stamp and make sure everything is straight before committing the ink to my card.
These are my 2 favorite tips, but also...
3. This tool is super perfect for when you are making multiple cards.  Every card will turn out exactly the same!!
4. Also perfect for your 2, 3 or 4 step stamping, like the BABY BEAR , the new SWEET LITTLE SOMEONE , and the WATERCOLOR WINGS Stamp Sets.


Our second Make 'n Take was playing with the NEW Brusho Color Crystals
This layout was cased form Patty Bennett
What a fun new product! so many tips out there as well.
Every image will look different depending on the technique or colors that you choose.
1. add water to your area then sprinkle on the Brusho
2. sprinkle on brusho then spritz with water... this is what we did with the butterfly (after stamping with Versamark and heat embossing with White Embossing Powder).
3. you can let your image dry naturally, dab off with a paper towel or heat it to dry it with your Heat Tool.
4. add some Brusho to a silicone mat (or clear block) then use an Aquapainter and brush your color on.
5. Brusho comes in a set of 5 colors: Blue, yellow, green, orange and red.
So much fun!  I spent a full day one day just playing with the Brusho Color Crystals!!

Guest Stampers Inez & Shirley

Wednesday, January 17, 2018
Inez featured the TRANQUIL TULIPS Hostess exclusive stamp set at her stamping classes this month so both she and Shirley brought a sample of cards that were made.  
 Both cards feature the knotted ribbon instead of a bow making your card less bulky for the mail.
Then Shirley brought one for me as a thank you for the Christmas gift.
It is so hard to show up in this photo, but Shirley used her stylus to "cup" the tulips giving them a realistic look. Very stunning!

I simply love this stamp set and you can get one with a qualifying purchase. For every $150.00 purchase you become your own hostess, therefore getting Hostess Rewards.  Using those rewards you can choose from the Hostess Exclusive sets.  This one, of course, is my favorite!
If your order reaches $150.00 you will NOT use the Hostess Code and therefore getting all the hostess benefits. (10% of sales). At $150 you would also qualify for either 3 - $50 price point Sale a bration items OR 1 $100 price point AD 1 - $50 price point items from the Sale a bration brochure.

Guest stamper Janell

Monday, January 15, 2018
This week I will be bragging on my Stampin' Up! team members...
Sharing with you what they shared with our team at our meeting last week.
Up first is Janell.
Janell loves the new BARN DOOR Stamp Set which she purchased as a bundle saving her 10%.
Look at these adorable cards that she made...
Janell tied a bit of twine on the barn door handle to make it easy to slide.
I love these! She made sure that she made a Christmas one too.

And a Valentine One using the I SURE DO LOVE YOU stamp set which is also available as a BUNDLE

These barn doors are all the rage in home decor now so this is a perfect time to add this bundle to your stamping line up.
Janell also shared with us the little box that can be made using the die included with the SURE DO LOVE YOU Bundle.
Christmas version:
And the Valentine ones she made with her grandson for his class at school

Petal Palette

Friday, January 12, 2018
One of the new stamp sets/bundles in the Occasions Catalog is called PETAL PALETTE
I just love the water-color feel to the stamps and all the great sentiments.
You can purchase this stamp set as a BUNDLE with the PETALS AND MORE Dies and save 10%
I was a little leary about cutting out the intricate pieces, but I was pleasantly surprised when they cut out perfectly! I cut the lattice and the leaves from THICK WHISPER WHITE Card Stock and used the new PETAL PAIR Embossing Folder(s)
So very very elegant (inspired by Ann Schach)
I used the new Stampin' Blends to color in the flowers and leaves.
I am still on the quest to earn my first Stampin' Up! trip. I really appreciate your business which helps me to achieve this amazing goal.
