Party Panda - Step It Up Blog Hop


Welcome to the March 2018 Edition of the We Create Bloggers Step It Up Blog Hop! I'm sticking with our traditional theme for this post, which is to inspire stampers with a basic design, and at least one alternate "stepped up" version of that same design. My projects this month feature the Party Panda stamp set, which you can get FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-a-Bration.


I've coordinated with a couple items from the Picture Perfect Party Suite, including the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper, which I used on both my cards. I also used the Watercolor Pencils on both cards. On this card I used the pencils dry, to add color to the panda's party hat, cheeks, and to add shading.

TIP: To get the "lime" color that matches the patterned paper, I lightly colored with the Old Olive pencil, then went over that with the Daffodil Delight pencil.

Stampin' Supplies: Party Panda stamp set, Whisper White card stock, Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes, Basic Black Archival ink pad, Watercolor Pencils, Picture Perfect Designer Series Paper, SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper Snips, Stampin' Trimmer (to cut and score).

Below is my Stepped Up version of this card, with just a couple of simple changes. First, I added a layer of Bermuda Bay Card Stock, from the Picture Perfect Party Card Stock Pack, and also used it for the greeting banner. Second, I used Blender Pens to smooth and blend the Watercolor Pencil coloring.

NOTE: Check out my previous post HERE, to see a different look with the Party Panda stamp set using these same supplies, but choosing different paper designs, and omitting certain features on a couple of images. I used the phrase "Happy Love Day" for Valentine's Day, but you could just use the "Love You" phrase from the stamp set instead, and create anytime love notes to tuck in a lunch or briefcase.
