Partying Pandas!

Hi there

Today I have another of the cards we made in recent classes, this time using the super cute 'Party Pandas' stamp set. This is one of the most popular of the FREE products that you can earn with a purchase of $90 or more (before shipping). I have two colour ways for this card, one very girly and one that is pretty gender neutral. The inspiration for this card came from Michelle Last who took her inspiration from Anni Karten. I love how we can each take the idea and make it our own. 

Stampin' Up! Party Pandas - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I have used the Basic Black Archival ink to stamp the Pandas. It is a crisp, saturated black that is perfect for this image. If you have a stamping platform, it will definitely assist you to get a really solid image. However, it does take a while to dry, so I recommend you give it a good blast with your heat gun to make sure it is fully dry before you start fussy cutting. The first colour combo is Pacific Point with Lemon Lime Twist and the other is Berry Burst with Lemon Lime Twist. I used alcohol markers to colour the balloons, as I wanted to get some shading,  but you need to be very careful as the black ink will bleed. I used Stampin' Write markers for the small details on the party hat and the heart on the envelope.

For the gender neutral version, I've used the round silver enamel shapes, silver star and the silver and white Baker's Twine for embellishments and the greeting comes from the 'Birthday Delivery' stamp set. The party hat Panda was also stamped onto the envelope and his hat coloured with Stampin' Write markers for a coordinated look.


For the inside, I have a Lemon Lime Twist mat for the writing panel and have used strips of designer paper at the base and a birthday greeting in the centre.

I added some cute little banners for a final touch.  The larger one is cut from the Lemon Lime Twist check design from the Tutti-Fruiti designer paper.


In this closeup you can see that I've just adhered the Pandas at the bottom of the circles, leaving the top free to give a more 3D effect. On this girly version I've used rhinestones for the embellishment.


For the inside of this version I've used some washi at the base with a strip of the Lemon Lime Twist designer paper and I stamped the dottie balloon and greeting from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.
