Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – Party Pandas Valentine

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave Party Pandas Valentine For Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Welcome to the monthly Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop. This month’s theme is Love. You are currently visiting Anna Krol from United Kingdom. I hope you enjoy my project. It’s my first time ‘hopping’ with Stampin’ Dreams crew. And I’ve got for you the most adorable love card EVER! Even if I do say so myself haha

Party Pandas card dimensions:

  • Basic Black cardstock: 11-6/8″ x 4-1/8″ scored in half at 5-7/8″ (29.7 x 10.5 cm scored in half at 14.8 cm)
  • Lemon Lime Twist cardstock: 3-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ (8.9 cm x 13.4 cm)
  • Whisper White cardstock: 2-1/2″ x 4″ (6.4 cm x 10.2 cm)
  • Watercolour Paper
  • Whisper White cardstock for the inside of the card: 3-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ (8.9 cm x 13.4 cm)

When I saw a theme of this month’s blog hop I instantly knew which stamp set I will use. Isn’t this panda adorable?! Especially with its slightly oversized heart balloon!

The base of my card is standard A6 size in Basic Black. For the first layer I took a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, spritz it with water to soften the fibres, and run it through the Big Shot with lovely Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I adhered it to the card base with Fast Fuse

Next, I inked my panda (I didn’t ink the balloon part) with Black Memento ink and stamped it onto Whisper White. With help of Stamp-a-ma-jig I positioned and stamped the sentiment ‘love you’ from the same stamp set.

Using watercolour paper and Brusho Crystal Colour in Brilliant Red and Gamboge, I created a watercolour wash. Once it dried, I took the heart die from Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies, die-cut my balloon and added some shimmer with Clear Wink of Stella.

I glued my heart to the panda, where the balloon was and adhered the whole piece to the card base using dimensionals.

I’m really happy how this card turned out! Love the colours, dimension but most of all this adorable panda. And I hope that my card inspired you & brightened your day.
