Party Pandas

Hello and welcome to part 3 of this week’s Sale-A-Bration spotlight on stamp sets! Today I will be featuring the Party Pandas stamp set, some punch art, and the Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes. I chose one of the cards from this set because I thought it would go great with the idea I had in my head to make this card, but to also show you that the cards and envelopes are another free product that you can earn with Sale-A-Bration!

To make this card, I chose the Lemon Lime striped card and it’s already cut and scored for you! : ) Now, the rest is easy!

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the panda with the party hat and the panda holding the balloon in Basic Black ink, except for the balloon, which you can either mask the stamp with some tape or wipe off, and then cut out. I used Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the party hat on the panda.

To make the leaf background, I used the Leaf Punch and punched out 10 in Garden Green cardstock and 9 in Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. These are assembled and adhered to each to a piece of Vellum cardstock cut ½” wide with Mini Glue Dots. I had one of each color left over, so I adhered those at the bottom in-between the two strips.

The pandas were placed and adhered to make it look like they are hanging or coming out of the leaves.

The sentiment from this set is stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock that is a ½” wide, in Lemon Lime Twist ink and then trimmed and the end is punched with the Triple Banner Punch. This is placed on the panda with the party hat to make it look like he is holding the banner as he is coming out of the leaves.

For some added effect, I used the clear circle and teardrop shapes, from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes, on the leaves.

The inside of these cards are white and blank, so no need to cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to stamp your sentiment. What do you think of this card? Do you have this stamp set? If so, what have you created?

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.

Valentine’s Day part 3

Welcome to part three of my three-part series featuring Valentine’s Day Cards! Each blog post will feature two cards giving alternative ideas featuring some current and some retired Stampin’ Up! products and even some Paper Pumpkin. Don’t worry if you do not have a retired product that is used, you can easily swap it out for what you have on hand or for something that is current.

For this first card, I thought using this stamp from the Party Panda’s stamp set would be perfect to use in creating a Black, White, and Red card.

The card base is in Real Red card stock cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½’, the first base layer is in Basic Black cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and the second base layer is from the Sending Love DSP (retired) cut at 3 ¾” x 5”. On a scrap piece of Whisper White, stamp the panda stamp in Memento ink, color the heart on the envelope with the Real Red Stampin’ Write marker, and then use the sending love stamp from the Sealed with Love stamp set (retired) in Real Red ink. The image is cut out using the 2nd largest square from the Layering Squares Framelits and then a piece in Basic Black using the largest scalloped Layering Square Framelits, adhere together. The two base layers are adhered together, use a piece of the Vintage Crochet Trim (retired) to tie in a bow around the middle, adhere to the card base, and then use Stampin Dimensionals to adhere the square layers to the base layers. The inside sentiment is from the Sealed with Love stamp set, stamped in Real Red and Memento inks.

The second card base is Melon Mambo card stock cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”, and the base layer is from the Painted with Love DSP cut at 3 ½” x 5 ¼”. I used the Love Notes Framelits Dies (retired) for the hearts along the front and then adhered a piece of Gold Foil Sheet cut at ½’ x 5 ½” to the card base so the hearts are on top and adhere the base layer to the card base. Using the three smallest curvy hearts from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits, cut out the hearts from scrap pieces of Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, and Vellum card stock. Layer hearts and adhere to the base layer and I used a piece of Melon Mambo Cotton Ribbon (retired) to tie in a bow and adhered to the biggest heart with a Mini Glue Dot. The inside sentiment is on a piece of Whisper White card stock cut at 3 1/2’” x 5 ¼”, stamped in Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, and Rich Razzleberry inks using the stamps from the Sending Love stamp set (retired).
