SBTD Blog Hop Sale-a-bration Occasions Catalog

Welcome to the SBTD (Stampers By The Dozen) Blog Hop as we celebrate Sale-a-bration and the New 2018 Occasions Catalog. We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world, sharing our projects and ideas to help inspire you. Sale-a-bration is my favorite time of the year and I can't wait to share with you some of the amazing new products available in the Sale-a-bration and Occasions catalogs.

One of my favorite Sale-a-bration products is the new Party Pandas stamp set. These pandas are just so cute you can't help but love them. My two cards show how you can use the images with products from the Picture Perfect Party Suite. I chose the Picture Perfect Party 6"x6" Designer Series Paper and the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set to help showcase the Pandas. 

For the first card, I cut a 1" strip from one of the 6"x6" pieces of the Picture Perfect Party DSP. The great thing about this paper pack is that one side features a realistic photographic image and the reverse side has a coordinating print. I attached it to the edge of a layer of Whisper White cardstock and layered a piece of 3/8" Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon along the edge of the DSP. I then stamped the panda image and the sentiment with Basic Black Archival ink. For a little extra color, I used the Watercolor Pencils to color in the balloon and the "ground" around the bottom of the panda image. Finally, I layered the Whisper White layer onto a Pool Party card base. 

My 2nd card features the reverse side of the same sheet of Designer Series Paper and I once again attached it to a piece of Whisper White cardstock and a piece of 3/8" Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon. This time I fussy cut out the image of the panda and attached it to a circle of Pink Pirouette cardstock cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits using Mini Dimensionals. I then attached the circle to the Whisper White cardstock with Dimensionals. I colored the panda's party hat with Stampin' Blend Markers and then added Wink of Stella to the Party hat and the black areas of the panda. 

The sentiment is from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set, which has a wonderful selection of sentiments that are perfect for your birthday cards. I heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder. I then attached the Whisper White layer to a Pink Pirouette card base. To finish off the card, I added several Basic Rhinestones for a little sparkle.

I love that I could use similar supplies to create 2 different types of cards. The versatility of these stamp sets and products are amazing and I look forward to exploring more possibilities in the future.

I'm hoping that my cards will help inspire you to give these products a try and explore your own creativity. Now it is time to visit Lyndsay LaRae Carara to see what she has created. Just click the button below to visit her blog.
