I began by stamping the darling images from the Cheerful Panda Moments Stamp Set onto white cardstock with Copic-friendly black ink. I colored them with Copics, added highlights with a white gel pen, then used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out.
For the background, I blended the streamers in the Carnival Party Stencil and Die Set onto the top of a panel of white cardstock using teal dye inks. I lightly blended the lightest teal ink around the outside of the top of the panel and a bit of light green ink toward the bottom. The frame was die-cut from white cardstock using two dies from the Nested Scalloped Rectangle Die Set, then it was adhered to the ink-blended panel. The pandas were adhered to the background with liquid glue, while the balloons and butterfly were popped up with foam tape.
The stamped portion of the sentiment was created by stamping the “make a wish” sentiment from the Floral Balloon Extravaganza Stamp Set onto white cardstock with dark pink ink, masking off “wish”. It was cut out with a die in the Floral Balloon Extravaganza Die Set. “Wish” was die-cut from pink and white cardstock using the Birthday & Wish Die Set. Both the sentiment strip and die-cut sentiment were popped up with foam tape.
Thank you so much for spending a bit of your day with me!! Have a wonderful week and I’ll see you back here next Monday!!
