Every year Stampin’ Up! has a promotion during the months of January through March called Sale-a-Bration. Sale-a-Bration gives a chance to customers to receive exclusive products with every $60 qualifying order. Party Pandas just so happens to be one of my favourite exclusive items from this year’s promotion. You’ve got less than one month to try to snag these perfect little Party Pandas stamp set. Both of today’s projects begins with a small piece of watercolour paper. Using an aqua painter or water brush, I did a background wash with Calypso Coral refill ink. You can also create a watercolour wash using ink pads, markers and paint. While the ink dried on it’s own, I stamped several of the Party Pandas on Thick Whisper White cardstock using Stampin’ Up!’s Black Archival Ink and coloured them with Stampin’ Up! Blends Markers.After cutting out my pandas by hand, I arranged them around the two projects. Yes, yes… I almost always have multiple projects going on at the same time. It’s wild. It’s crazy but it works for me. Adding embellishments and a sentiment here and there, I finished the first card. “Sending good thoughts”, it read – how perfectly this sentiment went with a panda holding a love note.With a bigger surface area to fill on the second card, the Happy Birthday Thinlet Die worked perfectly over top the watercolour background. The die said exactly what I wanted it to say.I hope you enjoyed today’s projects. Lately my style is clean and simple – But most certainly these Party Pandas stole the show.
Have a wonderful day
