This Panel Pull-out technique is the perfect technique to show off all the ladybug images in the Sale-a-Bration hostess set, Little Ladybug. The set is free to hosts that have party sales of at least $300 during Sale-a-Bration (through March 31st). I’m so happy that all 3 of my club hostesses last month earned this set free. You can host a party or just place an order by yourself of $300 and add this set for free.
Here’s the card I designed for my clubs (closed and open). I used 3 of the 4 ladybug images (2 on the card and 1 on the technique sample).
Here is the sample and technique journal page we made. My club members get a new technique page in their journal almost every month.
And here’s a close up of the measurements.
I hope you try this technique out…it’s fairly easy. You can write little hidden messages on the accordion piece and also still have the regular size space to write inside your card.
Text me (214-395-5586) if you’re local to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, and I can do a home party for you and your friends so you can earn this adorable stamp set before March 31st.
Oh, and here are the Stampin’ Blends colors I used to color in the ladybugs:
|Face||Petal Pink light|
|Cheeks||Flirty Flamingo light|
|Belly||Smoky Slate light|
|Hands||Basic Black light|
|Wings||Poppy Parade dark|
|Flower||Calypso Coral light & Dark|
|Leaves||Mossy Meadow light & dark|
|Flower Ctr||Blackberry Bliss light|
I designed this in May for a masculine card option. And, I thought the car image in this Geared Up Garage set would be perfect for the Soot Technique. So glad they carried this over from the previous catalog, since it has several sayings to handle multiple occasions.
Here’s a close up.
The funny thing was, I had just decided to do away with my table cloths on my class tables opting for just cutting mats under our grid paper. So, I told everyone we needed to be a little more careful with tools to protect the table. Then, I said “ok, tonight we are playing with fire and candles”… lol.
I used the Let It Ride stamp set for our technique sample and let the edges catch fire on purpose so it would look like an old western painting.
Stamps & Tools:
The Painted Seasons bundle was added to the Sale-a-Bration line up as a second release. I really love the succulent stamp in the set. I thought this set would be perfect to do the Double Time Stamping Technique. You could just use the designer series paper in the bundle, but it’s fun to create your background. I also unwound the twine to use 2 or 3 strands instead of the full thickness. I like the softer look being more like linen thread.
My club made a small card sample to go in their technique book with the instructions I printed for them.
Colors: Mint Macaron, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, Petal Pink
The Spotlight Technique was the perfect choice to color in just a portion of this huge stamp from the Occasions Catalog (aka the Spring Catalog). Of course, it is beautiful fully colored in too. I do love just plain black and white though, and this is a step above that.
Here is the Technique Journal page I did on this technique for my club.
Have a crafty week!
Here’s an easy wow to spice up your cards. I’ve seen these before, but didn’t realize just how easy they are. The tunnel card technique instructions are below on the technique page I made for my stamp club members.
Here’s the front. The whole scene is dusted with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. It didn’t show in the photo, so use your imagination…lol. I used Winter Wonderland Specialty paper and the Wonderland stamp set.
And, here’s the technique page with a tiny sample tunnel card.
Here’s one of the Valentine Cards I made for my clubs this month. It could also be for a baby shower.
Colors: Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, and Strawberry Slush
My technique this month was Split Negative. This is a new twist on getting this effect from how I was taught about 10 years ago. I ran across it while searching for techniques to share.
Colors: Calypso Coral, Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White

- Hello Life stamp set
- Happy Heart embossing folder

Both of these cards were inspired from similar cards shared on our demonstrator site. January is almost over! Thank goodness…year end accounting close seemed extra challenging this year. It’s so nice to have breaks from all that overtime to enjoy sharing stamp projects with my club friends.
