Party Panda Center Explosion Card

Hello and welcome to day 5 of this week’s Sale-A-Bration countdown! As promised, today’s card is something completely different using the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper! This super cute card is actually from Dawn Griffith and you can watch her video here. She does a great job in explaining how to make this card, so I will let you get the details and cuts from there. However, I will explain how I made my CASE’d version!

I will have to admit that when making this card you need 12” x 12” cardstock and any of my cardstock is old, I mean old, but it still works! Just means I need to update that supply! Lol

I used Basic Gray as a base layer, Bubbles & Fizz for my choice of DSP, and Party Pandas stamp set because I made this card for a special young lady that turned 18.

For the front, I stamped the panda holding the balloon in Memento Ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out. I then cut four balloons using the Balloon Bouquet Punch in Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Calypso Coral, and Bermuda Bay cardstock. I used the Labeler Alphabet stamp set to stamp each letter in her name in Versamark ink and then heat embossed in Silver Embossing Powder. I tied Black Metallic Thread around the balloon end and then adhered together at the panda’s paw with the silver foil heart from the Metallic Enamel Shapes. I popped two of the balloons up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the front inside layer, I stamped the panda with the party hat on in Memento ink, coloring in the hat with Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Lemon Lime Twist, and Bermuda Bay Stampin Write Markers. The same color markers where used to color the confetti stamp that is around the panda.

For the back inside layer, I stamped the panda holding the letter in Memento ink, coloring the heart with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker. The sentiment is from the Party Panda set and is stamped in Calypso Coral ink.

I used a piece of Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon to tie the card closed.

Spring Fling Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Stamp It Group Spring Fling Blog Hop and giveaway for February. This is my first blog hop and I am excited to be participating with such an incredibly talented group of ladies!

Nothing says spring like a basket of fresh cut flowers and with the Sale-A-Bration second product release, I could not wait to play with the Blossoming Basket stamp set and Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The card base is in Crumb Cake card stock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, the base layer is from the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and then use another piece of Crumb Cake card stock, cut at 4 ¼” x 4 ¼”, which will be used with the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF.

On a Whisper White card stock, stamp the flower basket and butterfly images in Memento Ink, letting them completely dry before coloring in with the Stampin’ Blends. For the basket, I used Light Crumb Cake and Bronze, for the flowers and leaves, Light and Dark Pink Pirouette, Light and Dark Calypso Coral, Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, and Light Old Olive, and for the butterfly, Dark Pool Party and Light Bermuda Bay. Both images are then fussy cut out using Paper Snips. The sentiment is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink on ½” piece of Whisper White card stock with the ends punched out using the Banner Triple Punch. A piece of Bermuda Bay Shimmer Ribbon is added to the bottom of the embossed Crumb Cake card stock.

The card is then put together by adhering the Bubbles & Fizz DSP to the card base, adhere the embossed card stock, and then adhere the basket and flower image. Finally, both the butterfly and the sentiment are adhered with Mini Dimensionals.

Celebrate You

For this weeks final card featuring the Amazing You stamp set and Celebrate You Thinlits Dies, I wanted to show you how to “up-cycle” leftovers from using the thinlits. Last month I made a card using the celebrate thinlit, which you can see here, and I decided that I was going to keep the bits that were left rather than just throwing them away.

The card base is in Basic Gray, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”, the base layer is from the Bubbles & Fizz DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and the Silver Foil Sheet is cut at 1” x 4”. Using scrap pieces of Whisper White card stock, stamp the “let’s” and “you” in Basic Gray ink and cut out by hand to the desired size.

To put this card together, adhere the base layer to the card base, cut a piece of Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon long enough to go around the front of the card, towards the bottom, and then tie in a knot. Find the position that you want the Silver Foil celebrate on the front, then use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere to the base layer, and then adhere the little bits in the C, L, and E’s. The “let’s” and “you” are popped up using Mini Dimensionals and added some bling with some Silver Foil Metallic Enamel Shapes.

This was such a quick and easy card to make and you get to use some of those leftover scraps! Let me know what you think!
