Stampin Up This Little Piggy Card Making Tutorial

This Little Piggy Card Making Tutorial
Hey Guys! Today I am back with a Stmapin Up This Little Piggy card making tutorial for you today.

This is the tutorial I promised yesterday. Epic fail, I am so sorry. Yesterday was my daughter’s birthday, registration for Stampin Up OnStage and opening day of the Kitchen Table Stamper Online Classroom for August. I really bit off more than I could chew. I am so sorry!

Today’s card making tutorial features the Stampin Up This Little Piggy stamp set. It was swag from my last OnStage adventure back in April. Pretty appropriate choice of stamp set since OnStage registration is one of the reasons I am late today. 😀 This Little Piggy inspired the whole Mammal Studies badge for Camp Wanna Stamp this year.

I am already working on tomorrows blog post. I will be back with the Home Sweet Home treat box tutorial tomorrow. Enjoy the card making video tutorial and the project sheet.

Swirly Bird Treat Bag Tutorial

Swirly Bird Treat Bag Tutorial
Hey Guys! I have more fun to share from Camp Wanna Stamp! Enjoy this adorable nautical Swirly Bird Treat Bag Tutorial. I found these amazing sail boat treats on Amazon. Do you think the manufactures knew that they were making treats that matched Stampin’ Up! Pool Party, Pacific Point, Real Red, Night of Navy, and Daffodil Delight? Probably not, but it sure is a happy coincidence.

If you are thinking about joining us for Camp Wanna Stamp, please RSVP with your payment soon. I am more than half full for both the in person event and more than half sold on my total number of to go kits. Your payment is your RSVP and secures your kit. You can learn more and register here.

Camp Wanna Stamp FAQ

Q: What Stampin’ Up! Stamp Sets do I need to complete my Camp Wanna Stamp to go kit?
A: Message in a Bottle, Butterfly Basics, Swirly Bird, Sweet Home, This Little Piggy, Cool Treats, Tree Rings and Jar of Love. Of course you can substitute where necessary.

Q: What is included in my Camp Wanna Stamp to go kit?
A: Everything that you need to make the project except adhesive, ink and stamps. I do your cutting, scoring, basic die cutting and include all the accessories like buttons, ribbons and bling. Camp Wanna Stamp kits include all the treats, except chocolate kisses – I am afraid they will melt. Your to go kit will also include the badges and felt pennant for displaying your badges when you are not wearing them!

Q: What Stampin’ Pads will I need to complete my Camp Wanna Stamp to go kit?
A: This list is a working list, I still have one project to complete and I might have two bonus projects. Of course you can substitute for similar colors. I use a variety of ink pads so that the in person class moves faster with less projects sharing ink pads.

  • Real Red
  • Pacific Point
  • Night of Navy
  • Pool Party
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Blushing Bride
  • Flirty Flamingo
  • Basic Gray
  • Powder Pink
  • Berry Burst
  • Old Olive
  • Lemon Lime Twist
  • Rich Razzleberry
  • Melon Mambo
  • Tempting Turquoise
  • Sweet Sugarplum

Butterfly Basics Mini Treat Bag Tutorial

Butterfly Basics Treat Bag
Hey Guys! Here it the Butterfly Basics Mini Treat Bag Tutorial that I promised yesterday. It is another sneak peek for Camp Wanna Stamp on August 26th. I can not wait to make these with you!!

I have a confession. I think it’s a weakness. I have the hardest time making a 3D project like a treat bag, or party favor or treat box with nothing to fill it. Unless I have a filler and a purpose for the packaging I have a complete blank when it comes to design. I tried really hard to turn that weakness around for Camp Wanna Stamp.

I spent time scouring Amazon for great little treats and gifts. I let the filling inspire the package. I found these adorable butterfly shaped crayons and just KNEW Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Basics stamp set, Butterflies Thinlits Dies, and Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper was going to make AWESOME packaging for these crayons!
