Stampin Up Party Pandas Celebrate card idea for birthday or St. Patrick's Day - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I just know she is going to enjoy the chocolate balloon Mr. Panda is delivering! I used The Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper and the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper (both from the Occasions catalog). Here’s my card details:

Card Base: 4 1/4 x 11 Whisper White scored at 5 1/2

Layer: 4 x 5 1/4 Tranquil Tide (embossed with Celebrations Duo Embossing Folder)

DSP Layer: 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper

Glimmer Strip: 1/4 x 5 1/4

I stamped the Party Panda on the DSP layer and Whisper White cardstock with Basic Black Ink.  I fussy cut the Whisper White one and adhered on top of the DSP. (Oops!  I noticed I need to clean up my glue before I send this!)  I used the 1 1/2 Circle Punch to punch the balloon through both layers.

I adhered the layer to my card base then attached the candy with a glue dot. I will send this is a bubble wrap envelope but I still decorated the card envelope to match.

O is for Organza Ribbon

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m showcasing the Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon found in the Occasions Catalog on page 23.  Stampin’ Up! used to carry Organza Ribbon and if you follow my blog, you know it was my absolute favorite ribbon. Do you know why? Well,  for starters it is classic; however, what makes it even better is that you can sponge it to be any color you want!!! My very first blog post on July 4, 2016 featured Organza ribbon that I colored to go with my party favors.  My second blog post was a Tuesday Tip on Ribbon Dying. You can Click HERE to view that post and see how easy it is to dye the organza ribbon. (I am happy to see my photography skills have improved since then.) I chose to keep my ribbon white for today’s Clean & Simple card. It is quick & easy to create and uses minimal supplies.

I am thrilled we have Organza ribbon again! Today’s card is a remake of one I shared during my first alphabet series, ABC’s of Stampin’.  *If you are new to stamping, this is a great series which focuses on the basics of stamping. There’s lots of tips and tutorials showcasing our products and tools. Here’s the card that was my inspiration for today. You can click on the image to get the card measurements and details as well as find out all about the different adhesives and what to use for different projects.

Here are some more projects showing ways I’ve used organza ribbon in the past.  *Our new Organza ribbon is 1/4″ but you can still use it in the same ways shown!

N is for Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes

Welcome back to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m showcasing the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes found on page 19 in the Occasions Catalog.  These are easy to overlook but you don’t want to miss out on these little gems!  I have been on a roll making a bunch of these note cards. They are small and narrow and perfect for little notes to put in your child’s lunchbox, husband’s briefcase, or to give with homemade baked goods to a friend or neighbor.

My husband does most of the cooking in our house but I enjoying baking.  A few of my favorites are homemade strawberry bread, apple bread, and banana nut bread. Many friends brought us meals during my recovery and I thought I would bake some breads to show my appreciation. The Tutti-frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper is perfect for these adorable thank you cards to go with my loaves of bread.  The 2 1/4″ Circle Punch makes a quick envelope liner to coordinate with the card!

The sentiment from the Fruit Basket Stamp Set is perfect for the inside. There’s still plenty of room to add a personal message.

I also made some note cards to tuck in with customer orders. The leaves on the thank you stamp from A Good Day coordinates nicely with Petal Garden Designer Series Paper. I colored the leaves with my Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.

You get 20 Thick Whisper White cards and 20 envelopes for just $8.  They are really quick & easy to decorate. You can get 4 card fronts from just 1 piece of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper! Stampin’ Up!’s CEO, Sara Douglas, did a Facebook Live video showcasing a quick & easy way to cut 6 x 6 DSP to get 4 card fronts! You can Click Here to see her video. I stepped mine up a little with a layer of coordinating cardstock measuring 2 1/4 x 4 1/4. I added some ribbon and then stamped and punched the sentiment using the new 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch from the Occasions catalog. I popped up the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I like to challenge myself to use every little piece of DSP and so I used the leftover 2 x 2 piece to make this Easter card.

I cut the leftover piece of DSP in half so I had two 1″ x 2″ pieces.  I added a 2″ x 2″ piece of Whisper White which I used to stamp the bunny from A Good Day Stamp Set and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I added Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon above and below the white piece. This little bunny is so cute! I added a little color with Stampin’ Blends.

My last card is a sweet treat holder for St. Patrick’s Day.

I found these chocolates at our local “Candy Kitchen” Shop. They have delicious homemade chocolates! I used some retired Emerald Envy DSP and punched a circle through the top layers using the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch.  I adhered the candy with a glue dot on the inside. The sentiment on the front is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and the inside sentiment is from the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set.
