Happy Birthday (Party Pandas)

Happy Birthday

Hi, have you missed seeing the cute pandas from the Party Pandas stamp set?  I could make card after card with this stamp set as it is so adorable! Today, I wanted to use all three pandas again but instead of putting them together, I thought I’d give them their own place on the card to shine.

You’ll notice I’m using the Stitched Shapes Framelits again.  They are fantastic and they are never far from my craft table.  I had to be a bit creative when die cutting the panda with the balloon.  I wanted the balloon to remain attached.  There is one very easy way to do this.  Line up the area where you DO NOT want the die to cut along the edge of the cutting platform. It may overhang a little and this is what we want.  When you run the die through the machine, there is no pressure on this section and it will not cut through.  I then fussy cut out the rest of the shape.  Clever, isn’t it?

Don’t be afraid to mix your colouring mediums either.  I had originally planned to colour the Pandas with Stampin’ Blends however when it came to the balloon colour I realised Berry Burst (the colour I was planning to use) is not available as a Stampin’ Blends marker.  Instead, I used a Stampin’ Write marker and Blender pen to finish the balloon.

Here’s the card…
