Animal Expedition Suite for Facebook Live

Hello and Happy Friday! I wanted to share the projects I made for my Facebook Live today. I have had the Animal Outings stamp set since Stampin’ Up’s On Stage event back in April. I decided that it was finally time to ink it up. There are so many fun products in this suite, like the Leaf Ribbon, the wooden Frames Elements and especially that cute Designer Series Paper. Select Designer Series Paper packs are Buy 3 Get One Free in July, too. So if you want to stock up, now is a great time. 

By the way, there is a link the the end of this blog post with a PDF file which has all of the measurements for the projects along with a supply list.

My first project was a little 3-D “matchbook-style” holder for a bag of gum. It’s super simple to create and is a great way to decorate a little treat. Isn’t that sentiment so cute bit that chubby rhino?
When I ordered this Designer Series Paper, I immediately fell in love with the little crocodiles. All I could think of was to create a project around his little “pearly whites."
So, I created a box to hold a toothbrush and a coordinating wrap for a tube of toothpaste. I thought these could be fun for party favors for the kiddos, although I’m not sure the kiddos would be as excited about them. It’s a way better choice than candy, right? 
Finally, I shared a card that showed how to use the “mirror image stamping technique” using the Stamparatus tool. It’s a great way to get more mileage out of your stamp sets and I just love these little giraffe buddies. I hope you do as well. :)

All of the products I used to create the projects will be listed on the sheets, along with the measurements. 

Also, if you put in an order in my online store ($30 minimum) by Monday July 16th, 2018 at midnight, I will send you these three make and takes for free! You will receive all of the supplies to create the projects but it will NOT include any stamped images (per Stampin’ Up! policy).  

Please use Hostess Code 2P9VFERN 

That’s how I will know that you ordered and will make sure that you get your make and takes. ($30 minimum)
If your order is over $150, please DO NOT use the Hostess Code, so that you can earn the Hostess Rewards. I will still send you the make and takes, along with an extra gift. 

Remember, orders must be placed by Monday July 16th, 2018 at midnight for these make and takes. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed these projects. Remember that I’ll be back on Facebook Live next Thursday July 19th at 2:30pm CST, so be sure to join me then. Until next time...

Have a HAPPY day!

The Celebration Continues at The Paper Players

Good morning stamping friends! The celebration continues over at The Paper Players this week for their 400th Challenge! I created another card because I love that they are keeping the celebration going for another week. There are a LOT of prizes for this challenge, so I hope you will check it out and share in come celebratory fun! 

I’m currently loving the combo of Pacific Point, Melon Mambo and Mango Melody. 
Bring on the BRIGHTS!! If you have visited me before, you probably know that is my favorite family of colors. 
One of my current goals is to attempt to incorporate stamp sets with colors and paper that weren’t necessarily marketed together. I pulled out the Balloon Celebrations stamp set and used the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday set. I just love that combination of fonts, don’t you? I tied it all together with one of the patterns from the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper. That DSP has a lot of abstract floral images but I thought this pattern paired well with the balloons. 

Balloons are just so much fun on their own, but stamped and heat embossed, they really stand out! I stamped and masked these “strings” a couple of times until I finally got it together. That’s the great thing about card stock. It has 2 sides. So if you make a mistake, just flip it over for a clean slate. Ha! 
I also used the NEW Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the 3-3/4” x 5” Whisper White layer. It is tough to see in the photos but it adds the slightest bit of texture to the paper, which I love. 

Here is a peek of the coordinating inside of the card. 
Pease head on over to The Paper Players to join in the fun! It would be awesome to see what you create for this “Celebration" challenge. Stop by and say hello to the rest of the team and before you leave here today, please leave me a comment to say hello so I know you stopped by. :)
