Hi Friends,

Isn’t this cute little Party Panda cute?  You can’t buy the Party Pandas stamp set – but you can earn it for FREE (for two more weeks). I know this looks like a Valentine’s Card –0-and it is! BUT this stamp set has many more uses!

Kids love PANDAS!


You could use this for a sweet birthday card –or even for a wedding, anniversary or even an adorable SHOWER card!

Think outside the box!

Stampin' Up! Painted with Love Party Pandas handmade card by Barbara Lash of StampingWithBarbara

I simply cut the Whisper White base to 11 x 4 1/4 and scored at 5 1/2″.

Then a layer of Melon Mambo ( 5 1/4 x 4)

Then the DSP at 5 x 3 3/4.

I added Powder Pink ribbon as a horizontal accent behind the panda.

The real fun was stamping the panda and adding punched out hearts in Gold Foil and the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series paper.

With a qualifying order, you can get this stamp set for FREE as a Sale-A-Bration 2018 option..

Stampin' Up! Epic Celebraton with Brusho colour crystals and headhones  Great teenage card by Barbara Lash of Stampin' With Barbara

This card was made on a thick Whisper White card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. 

I then added a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Pacific Point card stock that had been stamped with the dots in Pacific Point ink.

Next I used Pacific Point Ink with the Aqua painter to ‘splash’ on color as I liked it.

Using Memento Ink, I stamped the headset and the message — added some more color and voila!

My grand son loved it  AND that’s saying something for a 16yr. old!

Thankful for You Card Set

Hi Friends,

These three cards were inspired/tweaked by some I saw in Pinterest and in Thailand!

We made these as Make & Takes while on our awesome Stampin' Up! Trip in July!

The base card is Early Espresso then a layer of either Crushed Curry or Garden Green.

Then the luscious Painted Harvest Designer Series paper!

I then stamped and punched out (with the new Leaf Punch) several leaves to correspond with the paper.

Of COURSE I had to use a bit of Wink of Stella on the leaves!

Added a banner strip with the message and a bit of Baker's Twine plus a Faceted Jewel …and VOILA!

What do YOU think?
