Panda Love…

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.

Sweet Stamp Shop November Release

Hello everyone!!  I’m here to day to share with you the Brand New Sweet Stamp Shop Stamp Sets!!  They are to die for!

Take a look at the stamp set I used to create my card:

Perfect Panda

Aren’t theses little panda’s just the cutest you’ve ever seen!!  The little heart and the sentiments make me smile.

When I saw this set, I knew I wanted the two panda’s to touch each other by rubbing noses.   Then it was only fitting to use the heart image with the “sweet”sentiment.

After I put that together, I wanted to add some texture to the card and thought that since the holidays are coming up why not snow.  I saw Julia Altermann from Just One More Card create a card and she added snow with Distress Glitter Clear Rock Glitter and I loved it.  I ordered that Distress Glitter Clear Rock Glitter right away!

Take a look at my card:

Miss you copy

Isn’t the scenery just the cutest thing for these panda’s although, I don’t think Panda’s see snow.

Correction panda’s do need lots of water to survive.  “The temperate forest of central China were giant pandas live receive about 30 to 40 inches of rain and snow a year”.  That info came from the Smithsonian National Zoological Part Website.

I learned something every day.   I really never thought about the types of weather the panda’s have to face.  Now, I can’t stop looking them up.

Sorry, I digress!  Now on to the other stamp sets that are being released today!!
