What a great day today is!!! The 2018 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs are live! You are going to absolutely love these catalogs, I know I do. I have to say, the Party Pandas stamp set is my favorite set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog this year. They are so stinkin cute! The above card is so easy to make and great for a kids birthday, a friend, family member, maybe even a teenager! For a boy you could change the colors to a green, blue and red.
To make this card you will need the following products:
Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock #144245
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
Tempting Turquoise Cardstock #102067
- cut at 2 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683
- cut at 2 1/8" x 5 1/2"
Whisper White Cardstock #100370
- cut at 2" x 5 1/2"
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
The first time I tried to stamp the pandas I used the black Memento ink and I really didn't like how they looked. I wanted a dark, rich black and wasn't getting it. So, I tried the Black Archival ink and it turned out exactly as I wanted. I do have a tip for you that I learned while making this card.
You know how sometimes when you are stamping and your solid image isn't perfect. You want to fix it, but how do you do that? On my stamped image I tried to use the Stampin' Write marker, Basic Black, but it was slightly darker in color. Then I tried to use my blender pen and the ink from my stamp pad. That didn't really work either. What was I going to do? I didn't want to throw away the card and waste paper. I saw my marker laying on my desk along with the blender pen and thought, why not?! I took the blender pen and lightly swiped the tip of the marker and colored in the bare spot I had on my stamped image. It worked perfectly! Yay!!!
After I stamped my pandas I used the confetti stamp in the set and stamped them randomly using the Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist and Tempting Turquoise inks. I also colored in the circles on their hats with the same colors. On the base of my card I stamped the Happy Birthday with the Lemon Lime Twist in alternating the direction of my stamp. For the inside of my card and the envelope, I used the panda on the bottom left hand corner on each.
