This is a picture of the Party Pandas Stamp Set (#147218 wood mount or #147221 clear mount) that is free with a $50 order of Stampin'Up! products. It is the time of year called Sale-A-Bration at Stampin' Up!. This year there is a wonderful assortment of free products in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure including two choices for a $100 order. If you did not receive the Occasions Catalog and the Sale-a-Bration brochure email me and I will get one out to you immediately.
Here are a couple of different projects I made with this set. You can see from the photo above that it is a perfect birthday set. I chose to use it for a get will card and a Valentine's Day card.
In the two cards above, I fussy cut out the Panda image and cut off the balloon and the string to the balloon. I used the Sweet and Sassy Framelits to die-cut the hearts (#141707) and stamped the larger heart with the "love you" image from the stamp set. I used a retired embossing folder called Hearts to dry emboss a layer of Whisper White Cardstock (#100730). I could not decide whether I liked this embossed layer with the embossed or the debossed side up so I made a card using both. The Pandas and the hearts were popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The Designer Series Paper is a retired paper. After popping the images up on the front of the card, I drew a string from the Panda to the largest heart using a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.
The inside of the card uses two stamps from a new set called Sure Do Love You (#145763 wood mount or #145766 clear mount). The inside image was stamped with a Real Red Classic Stampin ' Pad (#126949) and the border was stamped with a Memento Tuxedo Black Pad (#132708).
The next card also uses the Party Pandas but as a get well card.
Yes that is a tube of chap stick attached to the side of the card. This time I used a Soft Sky Cardstock card base (#131202). I layered it with a piece of the Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (retired from the Holiday Catalog). I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to die-cut the stamped layer and the Real Red layer (#141706). The oval framelits contain 15 dies; both plain and scalloped ovals. Additional supplies include Whisper White Cardstock (#100730) and Real Red Cardstock (#102482).
The inside of the card was stamped with two of the greetings from the Here For You Stamp Set (#141541 wood mount or #142164 clear mount).
