Party Pandas

This may well be my favorite Saleabration set – Party Pandas  I used these cute little guys to create two shaker cards.  There are a few differences (besides the colors!) so let’s take a look at them.

I used the Sweet & Sassy Framelits to make the openings on both cards.  This one is a 4 x 5 1/4 white piece with some Tangerine Tango DSP behind it.  The hat, ballon and heart on the envelope were colored with Stampin Blends and the openings were filled with some retired beads and sequins.  After I die cut the openings, I put the die back over the opening and used a Tangerine Tango Stampin Write Marker to make a stitched line around the hearts.

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

For this card I switched to Calypso Coral and used the Diagonal Stripe stamp to create a tone on tone background.  The piece is slightly smaller- 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 – because I wanted to add a black mat to the back.  And I ditched the patterned paper on this one and just used white. The Party Pandas will be available on January 4th.  Have a favorite?  Let me know!  Hugs, Fran

Chicken Love

I needed a funny Valentine for someone special so I decided to use the crazy chicken in Hey Chick (Salebration) to peek out and send my love.  (You can click on the picture to make it larger ) This is a 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 card with the “love” part done as a shaker.  I arranged the letters with a heart from Sweet & Sassy framelits and cut them out of Real Red.  The chicken is stamped on the backing of the shaker and a few hearts are attached to the top of the transparency.  The letters are filled with sequins.  Then I used the left over letters to make this card –

The DSP on both cards is Sending Love from the Occasions Mini.  Hugs, Fran
