More Pandas!

I couldn't stop at just one card - so here are more Pandas partying!  I particulary love this card and it's so simple to make.

  • Cut you card base in a tent style fold.
  • Layer a piece of designer series paper on the front!  I chose to use a piece from the fabulously versatile petal passion papers.  Cut it 14.9cm x 10.5cm
  • Cut a piece of whisper white cardstock - 9cm x 14.9cm
  • Use a sponge brayer to add a stripe of colour of your choice across the card front - I used Pool Party here.
  • Add some confetti stamps on the stripe and happy birthday stamp underneath in archival black ink. 
  • Wrap a piece of bakets twine around this card piece and use dimensionals to mount it on top of the card base.
  • Finally stamp your panda in archival black ink on a separate piece of card.  Use a Stampin Write marker to colour the hat and fussy cut your panda.  
  • Attach your Panda to the card with dimensionals.

Party Pandas

One of the most popular sale-abration sets has been the Party Pandas - they are such cute little guys and they make quick and easy cards.  These cards were designed by Louise Sims and made by me at her training day.  You will have to take action quickly though if you want to get your hands on them!

More Epic Inspiration

I had the pleasure of attending a friends training day earlier in the year and one of her teamies had made some fabulous samples with Epic Celebrations - so I thought I would show you  some more ideas.   Photos don't really do the cards justice - but you get the idea!

Hallow Country Fair

It was my first time at Hallow Country fair and it was a lovely day.  There was a falconry display (I must admit to feeling a little uncomfortable when they came swooping down and hid my lunch just in case!), some belly dancing, morris dancers and a tug of war competition!  The weather was glorious and I got to meet lots of lovely people!

Here are a few pictures of the stand - though I say so myself, I do think it looked lovely!

There was a lot of interest in my pinned pictures - so I guess a class will be on its way.  I am at a craft fair in St Johns on Saturday - so hopefully I will get a good response then too!
