All About Love Stampin Friends Hop

Welcome to the All About Love Stampin Friends Hop.

Happy New Year!  I am so excited about the hop this year.  We have several NEW participants.   I really believe you’ll be blown away by their talent!

You have arrived at Kathie’s (that’s me!) blog.  If you have arrived from Cindy Waldroff‘s amazing blog … I’m glad you came for a visit!  Be sure to continue  though the hop until you get back to where you started.  I hope you find lots of inspiration as you hop on through!  The list of participants is at the bottom of this post.  Just click on Melissa Thomas  to get to the next stop on the hop.

Here are my projects for our January hop … Valentine’s Day.  I chose to use the  Stampin’ Up!’s  Sale A Bration set PARTY PANDAS  as one of the FOUR stamp sets for this project.  FYI: Party Pandas is only available for FREE during Sale A Bration when you place a $50 order.
Such a tiny card … so many sets!!!  ;-D
I used the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes from the Occasions catalog (page 19) to make this card.  The cards are not mail-able … so pop them into a larger envelope if you want to mail these cards in the USA.

The other 3 stamp sets are from the Stampin’ UP!’s annual catalog.  Ready to Pop (inside sentiment), Teeny Tiny Wishes and Artistically Asian.

For inks, I used Memento Black, Wild Wasabi and the Real Red (marker).  I found it very easy to just ink up the sentiments with the marker … this way I knew I wouldn’t catch and edge and mess up the card!

The first thing I did was to stamp the panda on a post it note, cut him out to use as a mask.  Then I stamped the panda on a whisper white layer.  Cover the panda with the mask and stamp the bamboo.  Remove the mask … and voila!  There he is IN FRONT of the bamboo.  Don’t forget to color in the little heart on the envelope he is holding!

Petal Passion Designer Series Paper  (DSP) is used for the layer on the card base.  A Real Red layer is under the panda piece.  The Real Red 1/8″ solid ribbon is a carryover from the Stampin’ UP! Holiday catalog.

I also stamped a panda on the envelope.  I used the 2 1/4″ circle punch to make a simple liner from the DSP for the envelope flap.

As always, I carry the theme from the card front to the inside.  I love that little “with love” from the Ready to Pop stamp set.

Below is my 3-D project … I used the Mini Pizza Boxes that carried over from the Holiday Catalog.  The Sweet and Sassy Thinlets were used to cut out the heart to make the window in the Mini Pizza Box lid.

I added a window sheet between the Real Red layer and the pizza box lid.

The adorable panda is fussy cut. and adhered with a few Stampin’ dimensionals.

I filled the food safe mini pizza box with these chewy cinnamon hearts … they are HOT!!  But oh, so good!!  As a note, I don’t think the window sheets are labeled “food safe” so you could put the loose candy in one of Stampin’ UP!s food safe cellophane bags and then place it in the box if you are concerned.
