I love the Olympics! I've been watching the TV pretty non-stop! As a result, I've been MIA from my craft room for a bit. Needing to make a Valentine I put together one (I'll show it after it is given) and this Party Panda Friend card. I've seen some really great cards using this stamp set! You can only get this stamp set FREE if you make a $50+ purchase before March 31.
I had been experimenting with my Brother Scan N Cut in cutting out my pandas so I had several stamped and cut out. I had also embossed that strip of cardstock too. They went together very well! Because this stamp has so much solid surface, it can be hard to get a good image. I used my MISTI but cannot wait until my Stamparatus comes later this month! It will make stamping so much easier! If you don't have a stamping tool, you can add color to any of your images by pulling up color from your ink pad with your blender pen. I've seen others fill it in with a Sharpie but I've found the blender pen works the best to look like it was stamped--the other markers look different.
All the details and printable instructions are here.
Still need the Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs? Request one here and I'll be happy to mail them out to you! Sale-a-Bration ends March 31 but the Occasions catalog is good until the end of May.
