Second Post for the day

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Sweet Stamp Shop and one of their new release stamp set.  I love the panda line.  They are so cute and cuddly.  How can you not want to know more about Panda’s.

I used this set to create my card:

Pho YouI paired it with this stamp set:

Fall Leaves

In doing my research about panda’s I learned a couple of things:

1. A panda mother is 900 times bigger than her newborn cub. 

2. Female pandas ovulate only once a year.  They are fertile only two or three days of the year.

Once I learned these facts, it was easy to create my card.  I knew I wanted to use the big panda (mother) and the small panda (baby) to along with those facts!!

Take a look at my card:

Thankful Pandas

I wanted to show the love between the two pandas.  The mother panda is thankful for her one cub.  Having a baby is really a hit or miss for the female pandas.  So to have a cub is all about love.

Take a look at how big the mother panda is to her cub.  She towers over her cub.  Such a great protector.

So now you know the reason behind the design but this is how I created it:

1. I cut my card base to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50)

2.  I used Mama Elephant Femme Frames to cut out my frames from Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather patten paper and vellum.

3.  I used the circle die from Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banner Die to cut out a circle from the LF Sweater Weather paper that had lines and hearts.

4. I fussy cut my pandas out and adhered them to the lined paper.

5. I used Stampin’ Up! Banners Framelits Die to cut out my small banners from the same pattern paper.

6. I offset the two banners and adhered them down with adhesive.

7. I added Lawn Fawn Orchid Single Cord to match the colors of my card.

8. I thought I was done, but I felt my card was missing something.  So, I added some Pink Sherbet Skittles for added interest.

So now you know more about panda’s and how to create this card!!  What do you think?

Don’t you want to create your own panda cards?  Well head on over to the Sweet Stamp Shop and pick up your panda sets before they sell out.

You Rock Teacher!!

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Blog Challenge and Word Art Wednesday.

wed-newchallenge-header

The theme is my favorite!!  It’s Back To School!  Yayyyyy!  If you’ve been following my blog you know how I feel about new paper, pens, pencils, notebooks and crayons.  I love the smell of new school supplies.  I get excited when my daughter gets her list from school.  We are one of the first people in the store.  I end up buying way to many supplies, LOL.

The card I made is for all of the teachers in the world.  Teachers have the hardest job in the world to me.  They deal with little people all day and those little people have different personalities.  Can you imagine all of them talking at the same time, lol!!  Oh no!!

On a serious note, they are responsible for preparing our children for life.  They teach them all of the fundamentals they will need to be great people in this world.  That is a big job.  With that said, I like to let my children’s teacher know they are appreciated.

Take a look at my card:

You Rock Teacher

I just love how this card came out.  The embossing looks so good against my favorite color cardstock, Audrey Blue.  I also used Simon Says Stamp Teacher’s Pet New Release for this card.

Here is how I created this card:

1. My card base measures 4.25 x 5.50 scored at 5.50 is Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue cardstock!!  So pretty to me.  My card panel measures 4 x 5.25 and its Neenah Solar White cardstock.

2. I used Simon Says Stamp Scrambled Letters Stencil and Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste to create my background on my card panel.

3. Then I used Simon Says Stamp Lunch Box Notes Craft Die to cut my frame out of Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Delight cardstock, the stars out of Stampin’ Up! Real Red cardstock and the small window out of Simon Says Audrey Blue cardstock.

4. I used Simon Says Stamp Teacher Craft Dies to cut the word teacher out of Stampin’ Up! Real Red cardstock.

5. Now its time to put my card together.  I stamped “You Rock!” from Simon Says Stamp Lunch Box Stamp Set with Versamark Ink and then embossed it with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.

6. I attach the square piece to the frame and two of the stars to the embossed panel using foam adhesive.  I attached the teacher die and one of the stars with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

7. For the finishing touch, I added a Clear Wink of Stella to the stars and the die cut teacher.

By the way, this card was made for my Blogging and Instagram friend Malini from My Little Pink Craft Kitchen.  She is a school teacher and I wanted to show her my appreciation. Enjoy!!
