Petal Palette Petals & More Petal Passion 3 x 3 Notecard & Candy Bar Box

 We always do a Make & Take project at a Stamp Share For Leaders meeting. This is the project we made in January:


It's a cute little box using half of an acetate Card Box with little 3 x 3 cards and a candy bar inside


The flap is just tucked behind the circles


Little candy bar wrapped in Designer Series Paper


Three adorable little 3 x 3 note cards 


The flap is attached to the base with a fold on the edge for the candy bar. It slips into half of a card box.


Colors: Basic Black, Berry Burst, Whisper White

Here are the measurements:

Party Pandas Amazing You Celebrate You Swap

The Stamp Share For Leaders group had their annual training meeting in January. We always do a swap, and I LOVE swapping with these awesome demonstrators! They are all so talented! I get so many ideas for my classes from them. 

Here is my swap, which uses the adorable Sale-A-Bration Party Pandas and the Stamparatus! Believe me, it will be worth the wait to get your Stamparatus! This thing is so cool! I'm proud to be part of the Leaders 2 Leaders (L2L) group that helped Stampin' Up! design it!



Colors: Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White

This is why the Stamparatus is so cool- I lined up my "celebrate" stamp so it would stamp the top image. Then I lifted up the plate and moved it down one notch to stamp the second image and then another notch for the third image. All my words were perfectly placed! And I didn't have to move the stamp! I made 65 of these cards in no time! 

Here's a slightly stepped up version:


When I opened my Color Lifter to remove the color for the reflection on the balloon, it dropped a drop of whatever is inside it on the edge of my balloon and made it run a little. I cleaned it up as well as I could, but then decided to put a layer of Fine Tip Glue all over the balloon to make it shiny. It's hard to see in the picture, but it looks kind of cool in real life! I also added rhinestones to the centers of the confetti. Gotta have some bling!

You're So Sweet Hearts For Valentine's

OK, so I didn't plan very well when I scheduled the January Stamp-A-Stack cards to be on the blog last week. I completely forgot about Valentine's Day! I haven't been making Valentine's for a few years. Chase was too old for them years ago and John usually isn't home to celebrate, so I tend to forget about it. But I do have a couple of cards to share with you this year! Here's the first one, which uses the negatives from hearts I needed for another project.



Colors: Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso

The tiny hearts actually came from the stamp set in the January 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit "Cute Conversations", but the one in Jar Of Love is a pretty close substitute! 

Hope you had a Happy Valentine's Day!

Seasonal Chums Seasonal Tags With Stampin' Blends

Have I told you how much I love the Stampin' Blends Markers? I really do! They are awesome for solid images because there are no lines! Here's an experiment I did just before Christmas to see which color I liked best for the reindeer in Seasonal Chums (which is on the carryover list so you can still order it if you missed it- woohoo!)


Bronze with Crumb Cake Light, Crumb Cake Dark with Crumb Cake Light, Crumb Cake Light with Crumb Cake Dark, Ivory with Bronze


I made them into tags for our Christmas gifts using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Aren't they cute?
