Hot Air Balloon Rose

Hot Air Balloon Rose

Hi, Everyone! Yep, you don’t need to adjust your glasses, or rub your eyes, it’s paper and it’s a rose. A Hot Air Balloon Rose to be exact. The first time I flipped through the 2019 Annual Catalog and spied the new Hot Air Balloon Punch, the image reminded me of a flower petal. At that moment I knew I wanted to create a 3D rose.

Well, I figured it out and would love to share the details with you. My WOW Team saw this first hand during our monthy Team Meeting. They loved it and I hope you do too. At the end of the meeting, everyone was throwing out color combinations.  One of my favorite suggestions was a Tropicana inspired color palette. Can’t wait to try that one. Want to join my WOW Team? We have so much fun together. Would love to have you as a part of my team.

By decorating one of our new little Mini Shipping Boxes, it gave me a gorgeous platform for my Hot Air Balloon Rose to shine. My daughter’s birthday is coming up. I think I’ll fill this little gift box with goodies for her. She’ll think her Mom is so clever. hahahaha!!

Be sure to order your Hot Air Balloon punch today so you can start creating your own roses. Here’s what you need to punch to create the rose as I’ve designed it.

Creating the Hot Air Balloon Rose

  • Base – One 1 1/2″ Circle 
  • Petals – You will need a total of 17 images. Divide as follows.
  • Row #1 – 6 Hot Air Balloon Images
  • Row #2 – 5 Hot Air Balloon Images
  • Row #3 – 3 Hot Air Balloon Images
  • Row #4 – 2 Hot Air Balloon Images
  • Center – 1 Hot Air Balloon Image

Of course, I wanted to dress up the little mini shipping box. Tasteful Textures is the lovely stamp set I used to create that vintage inspired image. Be sure to stamp first, then emboss with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.

Hot Air Balloon Rose, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

There’s a trick to creating those fabulous veined leaves. I hope you enjoy my free video tutorial that will show you this technique and all you need to know to create the rose.

Here’s how the magic happens.

  • Base for the Rose – one 1 1/2″ circle. Be sure to punch the circle from the same color you are using for your petals. In this case I’m using Real Red CS.
  • Petals – Real Red CS – approximately 1 sheet – punch 17 Hot Air Balloon images.
  • Leaves – Garden Green CS – two @ 2″ x 5 1/2″, each scored at 1″, place folded strips in the Corrugated Embossing Folder, run through the die cutting machine. On the fold of the strip, cut 1/2 moon shapes. I cut five for this rose.
  • Box – Mini Shipping Box
  • Mats – Garden Green CS – two @ 3 3/4″ x 2 3/8″, two @ 2 3/4″ x 2 3/8″
  • Embossed Mats – Whisper White CS – one @3 3/4″ x 2 3/4″, two @ 3 1/2″ x 2 1/8″, two @2 1/2″ x 2 1/8″

Blessed Encouragement Sampler

Blessed Encouragement Sampler

I’m excited to share my Blessed Encouragement Sampler with you guys today. One of my lovely students will be hosting her party this week. My club members give me some input on the project they would like me to design for their special night. This month, I was challenged to create a project with these parameters: “Something to celebrate a dream, a wish, a milestone in my life that I can add to a scrapbook page. Elements to go on a page to celebrate this time in life and all the hard milestones in the last few years. Encouragement for the future.”  With that, I started with her favorite color palette and created the Blessed Encouragement Sampler.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Blessed Encouragement Sampler, Stampin' Up!

If you guys visit here often, you know I LOVE texture and layers. Our fabulous embossing folders and dies made that easy with this design. You’ve got to have the Tin Tile and Country Florals embossing folders in your stash of art supplies. They are fabulous! Then, by rubbing on a little Petal Pink ink, over the embossed image, it really made all that texture pop off the page.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Blessed Encouragement Sampler, Stampin' Up!

Sometimes, as women, we forget how much we matter. I wanted Connie to know that in a special way. So, I included that message in the 1st block of her sampler. That very important “You Matter” is from the Around the Corner set. And, did you know that butterflies are a deep and powerful representation of life? Incorporating that symbol in the first block of the sampler was extremely important.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Blessed Encouragement Sampler, Stampin' Up!

In the second block, I thought I would give a little encouragement with the sentiment from Ribbon of Courage. So sad that set will retire. It can be found on page 114 of the current catalog. But hurry, it will be gone by June 4th. You won’t want to miss it.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Blessed Encouragement Sampler, Stampin' Up!

We all need to seize the moment and the sentiment in the third block of my Blessed Encouragement Sampler reminds us of that very important message. This one too, comes from the Ribbon of Courage set. See, I told you that you should scoop up this set.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Blessed Encouragement Sampler, Stampin' Up!

Last, but certainly not least, we could all use some beautiful flowers in our lives. Nature is so inspiring. Flowers symbolize things like beauty, hope, patience and joyfulness, just to name a few. The flowers in this block are from a brand spankin’ new set. The Floral Essence set will be offered in a bundle format. Don’t we all love punches? Yes we do! And of course I know you’re asking, where does that beautiful “Blessed” come from. Yep, that’s another new set, To a Wild Rose. It’s becoming one of my favs. Those two will be available beginning June 4, 2019.  Be sure to request your new catalog here

Cookies & Tea Treat Holder

Cookies & Tea Treat Holder

Are you ready? I’ve got a quick and easy cookies & tea treat holder for you today. Lucky me, one of my lovely WOW Club Members shared these as her thank you happy during her recent party. Everyone loved them. After the cookies were all eaten (by my husband, by the way) and the cup of tea was enjoyed, I deconstructed her cookies and tea treat holder. I just had to see how she created it.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Cookies and Tea Treat Holder, Daisy Lane, Stampin' Up!

First thing I learned is that it required NO GLUE! That’s right, you read it correctly. There is no glue needed to construct the base of the treat holder. How you score and fold the paper is the trick. This is going to be the quickest and easiest cookies and tea treat holder EVER!! Teacher Appreciation week is fast approaching. These would be super cute to send with kiddos for their favorite teacher.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Cookies and Tea Treat Holder, Daisy Lane, Stampin' Up!

I’ve used one of our “coming soon” stamp sets in my design. Our new Daisy Lane bundle will include a stinkin’ cute 9-piece cling stamp set and a medium Daisy Punch. Both are brand new! With this new punch, there are so many more flower making possibilities.  You’ll want to order yours just as soon as the catalog goes live on June 4th. Need a copy of the catalog? Click to fill out my contact form and I’ll be in touch.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Cookies and Tea Treat Holder, Daisy Lane, Stampin' Up!

Because I used the Share What You Love DSP, it made my cookies and tea treat holder super strong. The paper will be retiring, so you’ll want to pick up a couple of packs to create future treats and boxes. It’s the perfect weight and there are 24 sheets in the package.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Cookies and Tea Treat Holder, Daisy Lane, Stampin' Up!

I’ld love to show you how quick and easy this project truly is. What better way to do that, than with a FREE video tutorial!

Here’s how the magic happens. psst, I’ve also got my PDF of this project you can print and/or save.

Easter Gift Bag and Card

Easter Gift Bag and Card

Welcome! So glad you stopped by. Hope you are looking forward to the Easter weekend.  I’ve got a sweet Easter gift bag and card for you. These feature the Hold on to Hope stamp set and Cross of Hope dies.  Both projects are pretty quick and easy. But, let’s start things off with the card.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Card, Hold on to Hope, Stampin' Up!

Little supplies are needed for this Easter card; mainly stamp, ink and paper. I did use the Tin Tile Embossing Folder to give the card a little texture. I’m so happy that this set and the coordinating dies will carry over to our new Annual Catalog.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Card, Hold on to Hope, Stampin' Up!

My color combination for both the Easter gift bag and card is Whisper White, Soft Sea Foam, Merry Merlot and Soft Suede.  The softer tones definitely remind me of Spring.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Card, Hold on to Hope, Stampin' Up!

I used a masking technique to be sure the cross came forward with the sunburst in the background. Not sure how to do that? No worries, I’ve got a video tutorial for you.

Next up, we have the coordinating Easter gift bag. Be sure to add your design to the bag with dimensionals. In that way, you can clip the dimensionals away and salvage the creation for an Easter scrapbook page. I love it when a project can serve double duty!

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Gift Bag, Hold on to Hope, Stampin' Up!

Stamping the edge of the large Soft Sea Foam mat really brought my Easter gift bag to life. The image comes form the Beautiful Promenade set. That one is currently offered in a bundle format. It will carry over to the new catalog, but if you wait, you’ll loose the 10% discount. So, if this one is on your list be sure to order it soon.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Gift Bag, Hold on to Hope, Stampin' Up!

I just love that Stampin’ Up! offers so many lovely dies to dress things up. The two die cuts on the focal image are from the Flourish set. That is one of my favorites and lucky me, it’s going to carry over.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Gift Bag, Hold on to Hope, Stampin' Up!

The gorgeous die cut at the top of the mat is from the Delicate Lace set. And hooray again, this one will be an offering in the new catty.  This time I spritz it with our Champagne Shimmer Mist to give it a little sparkle.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Gift Bag, Hold on to Hope, Stampin' Up!

Using my paper piercer, I even decided to give the scallop oval even more texture by piercing each of the scallops.  I just think that adds so much. What to create an Easter gift bag?  I’ve got a video tutorial for you. Enjoy.

Easter Treats Extravaganza

Easter Treats Extravaganza

Time for my Easter Treat Extravaganza! Do you love to put a smile on the faces of those important people in your life? You can do that with just a little something we refer to as a “happy”. Nothing says love like a handcrafted little something.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

All four of the treat holders are pretty quick and easy to create.  I highlighted the projects on my recent Facebook Live. Be sure to Like and Follow my WOW NOLA Creations Page so you don’t miss out on any future  Susan WOW Live Shows. I’m LIVE Sunday evenings at 7pm (CST). Can’t make the LIVE, no worries, I always post the video and you can catch the replay. Now back to these super cute Easter Treats. 

1st up we have this super cute cookie treat. I was able to snatch these up at my local Dollar General. They have bunnies, Easter eggs and chicks. But, for this one I chose the bunnies. Be quick, they are selling out fast!!!!!

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

Using the Daisy Delight stamp set and punch it was super easy to make a fabulous topper for my treat.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

Here’s how the magic happens on this one.

  • Designer Series Paper – Painted Seasons – 9 1/2″ x 2 3/4″, round off the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch.
  • Daisy and Sentiment – Whisper White CS – 3″ x 8 1/2″. Stamp two of the daisy images from the Daisy Delight set, in Calypso Coral, punch with the daisy punch. Stamp the sentiment from the Fable Friends set in Memento Tuxedo Black. Punch out the sentiment with the 1 1/4″ circle punch.
  • Scallop Circle – Calypso Coral CS – punch one 1 3/8″ scallop circle
  • Daisy Centers and Leaves – Lemon Lime Twist CS – punch 2 sets of leaves with the Leaf punch. punch two 3/4″ circles for the center and back of the daisy.
  • Whisper White Baker’s Twine – about 8″

It wouldn’t be a WOW show if we didn’t step things up. Next up we have our little Peekaboo Bunny Treat Holder. The Gingham Gala DSP makes the most darlin’ Easter Treats! Be sure to order at least 2 packages of this fabulous paper before it’s gone forever.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

I picked up the cute chocolate bunnies at my local Dollar Tree. They come 3 to a package for $1. You can mix and match the colors with the DSP pack.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

Wait, did you see those cute sequins? They are sticky back, so easy application. They come in assorted colors with 250 in a package. Here’s how the magic happens on this one.

  • Tag Topper Easter Treat Holder – CS color of your choice – This one is Highland Heather CS – 2″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/4″ and 5 3/4″. Punch both ends with the Tag Topper Punch.
  • DSP  Mat – Gingham Gala DSP color of your choice – This one is Highland Heather. 1 3/4″ x 4″
  • Wet glue the DSP to the front of the tag topper Easter Treat holder. Punch a 1 1/2″ circle from a post it note. Use that circle to mark a place on the treat holder. The bottom of the punched circle should be 1 1/4″ from the first score line on the treat holder.
  • Scallop Oval – CS color of your choice. This one is Highland Heather CS – 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″. Cut with the die from the Layering Ovals set.

  • Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins – color of your choice
  • Ribbon – Granny Apple Green – 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon – about 4″
  • Solid Whisper White Baker’s Twine – about 8″

Ready to step it up again? This time we will be adding a few more steps, embellishments and lots of cuteness. The Bunny Rope treats were found at Dollar General and they come 10 to a package for $1. Can’t get too much better than that. These would be cute for your kids or grandkids to bring to their classrooms for Easter Treats to share with their friends.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

The cute little bunnies on the packaging started my creative wheels turning. Then I chose the color palette to match. This one is quick and easy to put together. But, it is also easy for the kiddos to get the treat without damaging the treat holder. In that way, Mom could use the bits from the treat holder to embellishment a scrapbook page to commemorate the event.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

I’ve got so many people asking for the directions for this one. Here’s how the magic happens.

  • Easter Treat Holder – Daffodil Delight CS – 4″ x 11″, score on the 4″ side @ 1/2″, 1 3/4″, 2 1/4″, and 3 1/2″

Last, but certainly not least, is my WOW Easter Treat.  I wanted the kiddos to have an opportunity to learn something about nature and growing something. That’s when I found the sweet little carrot chocolates at my local Dollar Tree. You can also find these at Dollar General and Target.
