Clean & Quick Cards SERIES 19 – Panda Party

Today we are “hanging out” with the adorable panda from Party Pandas. He’s casually hanging from his balloon with a sentiment from the Occasions Catalog stamp set In The Trees that reads “We need to hang out more.” I love this sentiment paired with the adorable Party Pandas set. The only way you can get this adorable panda is for FREE during Sale-A-Bration happening right now!

I’ve used the Stampin’ Write Markers set of In Colors for 2016 – 2018. The colors I used are Dapper Denim for the shadow below the panda, and Flirty Flamingo for the shading on the balloon. I used a Blender Pen to fade the colors out slightly and used a technique where you color with the markers on an acrylic block to pick up the ink with the Blender Pen.

This technique would also work well with the Aqua Painters, although I would recommend using our Watercolor Paper if you use the Aqua Painters. The Watercolor Paper is specifically made to help soak up that water and leave a beautiful color without the paper “pilling” or warping too much.

By purchasing the basics below to make this card, you can earn the Party Pandas stamp set for FREE during Sale-A-Bration!

Party Time Shaker Card

I love a good shaker card, but what if you don’t have anything to “shake”? Just use 1/2″ circles! Heck, you could even use all the little bits of paper that come out of the thinlits and framelits. I’ve used some Dapper Denim and Silver Glimmer Paper circles inside this Party Time Shaker Card and love how it turned out!

This is a simple shaker card for both beginners and advanced crafters alike. The Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set makes for some fun embellishments around the frame. I love a good shaker card, and one of my favorites that I’ve made is my Jar of Love Shaker Card using some beautiful sequins. What would you put in yours?

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Mat: 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″
Frame: 4″ x 5-1/4″, cut a 3/4″ border
Sentiment: 1″ x 3-1/2″
Scrap: Approx. 3″ x 3″
1/2″ Circles: 12 cardstock, 5 Glimmer Paper

Clean & Quick Cards SERIES 1

Welcome to the first video in a new series, Clean & Quick Cards! I need to bust out some quick Christmas cards, and thought I would share some designs I’ll be sending out with you. I really like how quick these are to make, and I LOVE the crisp, clean look that Whisper White Cardstock gives these cards.

They are perfect for beginners or advanced paper crafters and can easily be “stepped-up” to create a more detailed look. Keeping it simple, with just a few materials, is really a fool-proof way to make beautiful cards quickly.

Poinsettia from Scratch

I wanted to replicate a pattern on my leggings, but didn’t have the poinsettia punch so I improvised! It’s a bit of a mish-mash, but I think for what I had on hand it came out pretty well. I used a LOT of different framelits and thinlits to get this beautiful Christmas flower, so be sure to check below for all the materials used.

I love finding inspiration for my cards in unexpected places, and I think finding inspiration from a clothing item is so awesome! It’s a color combination that I would have NEVER put together myself, so I’m glad I got out of my comfort bubble to give this a go!

Measurements

Card Base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Card Mat – 4″ x 5-1/4″
Scrap Pieces – Large enough to cut out assorted pieces
