Party Pandas Valentine Nugget Treats

Want a quick and easy treat for Valentine’s Day? How about this chocolate filled treat made with the two of our Sale-a-bration items? Just one pack of the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper will make quite a few of these goodies. So why not grab a bag of Nuggets and get started?

Here are the instructions – the supply list is below for you.

  1. Cut 5 strips of Designer Series Paper 1″ x 3″ (make sure the pattern is going the direction you want. For mine I lined the hearts up along the top edge and cut 1″ strips that then I cut into 4 3 inch sections.)
  2. Using your Glue Dots add one to each end of the Designer Series Paper and place one against the Nugget and wrap the Designer Series Paper all the way around. The second Glue Dot will seal the other end down.
  3. Slide the nuggets into cello bag.
  4. Cut a piece of Blushing Bride Card stock 2 1/4″ x 4 1/2″; score at 2 1/4″
  5. Stamp your sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink along the bottom of card stock.
  6. Fold the sentiment piece in half and slip over the top of the cello bag and staple. (Your scallop circle will hide the staple on the front.)
  7. Run a piece of Calypso Coral card stock through the Big Shot using the scallop circle Framelits die.
  8. Attach the scallop circle to the nugget topper, leaving it hang a bit above the top.
  9. Stamp your panda image onto Whisper White card stock using Basic Black Archival Ink.
  10. Color in heart using your Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker.
  11. Cut panda out using the circle Framelits die.
  12. Adhere the panda image to the scallop circle card stock using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

That’s it! Quick and easy – now you just need to share your treat!

Season Like Christmas

This tree was calling me when I saw it – after all there is nothing like a evergreen this time of year. And I have some wonderful memories of planting hundreds of blue spruce saplings with my father as a small child on our piece of property in Wisconsin. I was a very proud 3 year old helping him!  He’d drop the tree in the hold, pour the water and put the dirt back and it was my job to stomp that dirt down tightly. He was putting them in so we could have a tree farm, unfortunately that never came to pass. The last time I saw my childhood home there is a woods where that once empty field  – and seemed the trees touched the sky!

So this card was inspired by that time with my father and I really like the way it turned out.

What do you think? Want to know how I created the soft forest of trees for the front of this card?

I took a couple of pictures for you to show you how I did it. I used a simple masking technique for this project.

  1. Take some large post it notes and create a frame on the card front. I used my grid paper to make sure the lines were straight. I simply laid my card stock down on the grid paper, used a ruler at the measurement  I wanted and then stuck the sticky note down. The grid lines make lining things up easy and keeps everything straight for you – LOVE my grid paper!

2. I used my Stampin’ Sponge and Soft Sky Classic Ink to lightly sponged the area inside the sticky notes on the card front.

3. Next I stamped the tree image using the Soft Sky Classic Ink. To create the softer trees in the background I didn’t reink in between, but instead stamped multiple times before reinking.

4. I then removed my sticky notes and stamped the tree in Wild Wasabi and Garden Green Classic Ink.

5. Added the trunk and the sentiment and then put it onto the card front.

Voila! A wintry woods.

Here is a printable tutorial for you!

Heartland, OnStage & More

Today I’m going to share one of my cards that I created for my OnStage swaps and I’m including a tutorial for you too.This set makes a wonderful masculine cards and I’m always in need of that! How about you?

Love it- it reminds me of all those barns that dotted the country side in Wisconsin. As a child they did school field trips to a really cool living museum, Old World Wisconsin, where they had moved all kinds of barns and had live reenactments from different time periods. It really brought history to life. However, I do remember having been very tired at the end of the day for the long bus ride home. LOL I should have such energy now!

Any how, I bet you’d like to see the tutorial, right?

Enjoy! I’ll include the supply list at the bottom of this post for you, so scroll down.

More OnStage….

On a personal note I wanted to share some more photos of OnStage Live – Salt Lake with you. I also want to say thank you, to my fellow crafters, stamping friends, and Team members for your support and help in reaching my goal this year. I couldn’t have taken this step on my journey without each and everyone of you!

I was one of the 160 Demonstrators world wide who promoted to Silver Elite this year and just 1 of the 44 who were in attendance at OnStage Live in Salt Lake who were recognized with a walk across the stage. I can tell you it made my first Live event VERY special.

I couldn’t have done it without you and I’m feel extremely blessed to have each and everyone of you in my life! Meeting and creating friendships while stamping was a special blessing that I didn’t expect when I joined the Stampin’ Up! family 8 years ago. So thank you again!

This promotion allowed me to participate in Leadership training, which allows me to share even more with you. And I can’t wait to share – I’m so excited about the new Occasions Catalog and Saleabration offerings I hope you will be too!

CenterStage is a special event that I was able to attend Thursday night with some wonderful entertainment.  Here is my friend Susan and I at the dinner. We had the pleasure of sitting with Nancy Gauthier and some of her team. (Nancy was the #1 Demonstrator in Leadership in Canada).

I thoroughly enjoyed Jason Hewett who was the entertainment for the night. I laughed until I cried he was sooooo funny!  I wasn’t alone, we were all wiping our eyes by the time he finished. You can find some of his older stuff on YouTube if you are curious.

Stamparatus Update

Wow,  if you tried to reserve a Stamparatus yesterday you know the reservations closed much quicker than expected. Please contact me and I’ll be happy to put you on my Stamparatus list and make sure you get any future information about the new reservation process.

I’m afraid I’m not sure if I’ll be able to post tomorrow since I’ll be having a new heating and air system installed.  I’ve been without now since October 8th! Yikes and its getting a bit nippier at night inside my house with the cooler temps. I’ll have to wait and see and crazy it gets around here.

I still have to share a 3d tutorial with you and some wonderful swaps I received at OnStage – so stop on by.

On Stage, Country Living & More

Wow, it has been a world wind 7 days with lots of fun, laughter, and friends! I’ve got lots to share with you, but today I’m going to share a card that I created for my On Stage Shoebox Swap with Sherrie and more!

I’ve waited 8 years to get to go to a Stampin’ Up! event in Salt Lake and it was well worth the wait – I had a blast and can’t wait for the next On Stage in April, after all I always enjoy stamping with 2,700 of my closest friends. LOL!

My roommate Marnie and I  took off in the wee morning on Tuesday, ready for adventure.

We arrived in Salt Lake ready to check out the city – a quick peek out our window after we checked in (what a view)

And then enjoyed the stroll around Temple Square which included an organ recital there,

and the City Creek Center, which was an outdoor mall where we had lunch at the Blue Lemon, yum.

I couldn’t resist stopping in the chocolate shop, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, which smelled heavenly and picking something up for my hubby, Larry whom I’m left at home. As many of you know he is a chocolate fiend!

And of course we had to check out the Salt Lake Palace Convention Center.

It was fun to see all the Stampin’ Up! On Stage Banners on the posts. It was a full day for sure.

Wednesday, I did a Sherrie’s Shoebox Swap so today I thought I would share a tutorial for my card with you. Want to see the card? I really loved the way it turned out.

Here is the card I created.

I call it Boots and Bandanas – can you see my old-fashioned bandana in the background that I created with the Paisley & Posies Stamp Set. Larry didn’t I had to explain it to him, he just shrugged at me – men lol.

Here is the tutorial for you so you can make one too.
