I snagged this adorable Party Pandas stamp set from Stampin’ Up during their Sale-A-Bration this year and this is the first chance I’ve had to play with it. I made a really quick and simple birthday card using the cute little panda holding the balloon.
I stamped the panda with black ink on white card stock. I colored the balloon with Copic Markers (I usually order my Copics from Dick Blick Art Supplies) and added a highlight with a white pen (I like this white Gelly Roll pen). I also added a light gray shadow under the panda.
I die cut the panda using this Nestabilities die set from Spellbinders and inked the edges with blue ink. I stamped “happy birthday” with green ink, punched it with a word label punch, and inked the edges with blue. The word label punch is discontinued from Stampin’ Up, but here is a similar one they have.
To assemble the card, I attached a piece of patterned paper to a white card. I attached the sentiment to the panda stamped piece and then attached the piece to the card at an angle with foam tape. To finish off the card, I added four gems.
These little pandas are so fun and cute – I’m sure they will be finding their way on to lots of my cards in the future!
