INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Thick Whisper White card base ar 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Perfect Plum card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through your Big Shot with the Petal Burst embossing folder. Glue to your card base. 3. Stamp all three pandas on Whisper White cardstock leaving plenty of room to punch them out with the Starburst Punch. You might need to stamp each image more than once, so use the Stamp-a-ma-jig so you can get the perfect stamped images. Punch out each panda separately with the Starburst Punch. Stamp the confetti in Perfect Plum ink as desired around the pandas. 4. Stamp Happy Birthday twice in either Perfect Plum or Elegant Eggplant ink on Whisper White cardstock. Punch out both sentiments with the Classic Label Punch. Put three Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of each Classic Label. 5. Punch three 2-1/4″ Elegant Eggplant circles. Glue the Panda Starbursts onto the Elegant Eggplant circles. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the Elegant Eggplant circles. 6. Punch a Balloon out of Wisteria Wonder cardstock. Color it with the Rich Razzleberry Blends Markers. I did the Dark against the left side, the Light over the rest, and made the “shine” by removing the color with the Color Lifter. 7. Lay out your circles, balloon, and Happy Birthdays in the desired positions. Attach the Circles and Happy Birthdays with the Stampin’ Dimensionals. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the Balloon. 8. Tie a bow from the Baker’s Twine. Attach it to the bottom of the balloon with either a Glue Dot or a small dot of Tombow Glue.
Your card is finished. 9. Envelope Options:
~Emboss the envelope flap with the embossing folder
~Stamp either a panda or Happy Birthday onto the envelope flap.
We tested out my NEW Stamparatus for both these cards. You can order yours in June.
The Party Pandas looked best with 2-3 layers of ink which was super easy to do with the Stamparatus. I also used the Color Theory Designer Series Paper for the Bamboo stalks and the leaves are from the Everyday Jars Framelits.
The Lovely Wishes card also used the Stamparatus. We placed the two flower and leaf stamps on one side, then stamped, then rotated the card front and stamped again. We also lined up the Happy Wishes stamps in the Stamparatus and stamped it. We again colored with Blends Markers.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cur your Real Red card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Whisper White card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. 3. Stamp your Flower Arch image and Love You Yesterday sentiment in Memento Black ink. Stamp the I Love You in Real Red ink. 4. Although there are two-step stamps for the Arch, flowers and leaves, I chose to color the images with my Blends Markers. Make sure you have at least 1-2 layers of scratch paper under your cardstock when coloring as there will be bleed-through of the Blends inks.
~Crumb Cake Dark along the left sides of the wood. Crumb Cake Light to color in the rest and blend out the lines.
~Old Olive Dark and Light for the leaves.
~Daffodil Delight Dark for the center of the large flower. I had accidently colored the center with the Cherry Cobbler Dark. I used my Color Lifter to remove the color, then colored the center with Daffodil Delight Dark. So I am having you do the Daffodil Delight first.
~Cherry Cobbler Dark for the large flower with the Daffodil Delight center.
~Cherry Cobbler Light for the other three flowers. 5. Attach your colored card front to your card base.
