Stampin’ Up! Party Animal & Tasty Treats

When I’m creating cards/projects for a class, I make many different samples and then decide which ones to use.  Today I have two cards that didn’t make the cut in my Happy Birthday Class To Go.   I used the stamp set Balloon Adventures for both cards and the measurements for the cardstock and paper are the same. 

All of my butterflies have a piece of vellum on top and I secured it to the cardstock/DSP with glue dots.  The rhinestones are in the perfect place to hide the dots.  Each butterfly has a small piece of Stampin’ Dimensional on the back to give it some height.

Base of card:  8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″  score @ 4-1/4″

Designer Series Paper:  5-1/4″ x 4″

Cardstock panel:  4-1/4 ” x  2-3/4″

Sentiment panel:  4″ x 2-1/2″

The first card uses Stampin’ Up! Party Animal Designer Series Paper and the second one, Tasty Treats. All of the supplies used in making these cards are Stampin’ Up!.  They are listed below along with their item number and price.  When you click on the products you’ll be taken to that item in my Stampin’ Up! online store.   If you have any questions about either card, don’t hesitate to contact me!

If you have never made a sour cream container before, you need to give it a try! They are so quick and easy to make!  Pop a few treats inside and you’ll make someone’s day!

I made mine in two different sizes.  The smaller one uses a piece of DSP measuring 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  The larger one uses a piece that measures 5-1/4″ x 6-1/2″.  You aren’t limited to these two sizes, experiment and try different sizes!

The Designer Series paper I used is a Sale-a-bration freebie called Best Day Ever.  Tomorrow is the LAST day to receive this paper FREE with a $50 order!  I used a crimper on the ends of the Calypso Coral sour cream container.  Stampin’ Up! no longer carries this product but they are easy  to find. And it really is just as cute without the crimping.

Have you ever wished for an embossing folder that just doesn’t exist?  You can create the look of  an embossed background with the Faux Embossing Technique!

To make my card I used our Transfer Adhesive Sheets which have a protective coating over very sticky, strong adhesive.  Before running it through the Big Shot, I peeled the paper off of the Transfer Sheet and placed the sticky transfer sheet onto my Whisper White cardstock. You’ll run it through the Big Shot using this “sandwich”:

1.  Magnetic Platform

2.  Cutting Plate

3.  Adhesive Sheet/Whisper White cardstock with cardstock facing up

4.  A piece of waxed paper (this helps to remove the Thinlet)

5.  “Hello” Thinlit

6.  Cutting Plate

The word Hello easily peels off of the transfer sheet with a nice layer of adhesive on the back.  Another option would be to cut out the word using your Whisper White cardstock and then adding your own adhesive such as Tombow or the 2-way Glue pen.  For me, the adhesive sheet made it so easy to place the words down on my paper!

I started in the middle of my cardstock with the first hello.  I cut off the pieces that hung over the paper and was able to place some of the scraps onto my finished piece so don’t throw away those pieces until you are completely finished!  When you’re done, it looks as though you used an embossing folder!

I punched a few flowers using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, sponged Coastal Cabana ink around the edges, added a candy dot and adhered them around my words!

Here’s one more!
