Kung-Fu Panda!

 I have a card for you today using a clear stamp set that is a great addition to the Panda Butt set.  This set is called Panda Hair Don't Care and it's available to purchase HERE without a kit. 

If you haven't heard, the Panda Butt PAPER DOOR has been re-released for a limited time and is almost sold out again!

I love this chunky panda and the expression on his face.  For this card he seems obviously a boy panda but there's a bow in the set that can turn this into a girl panda.  It can also be used as a bow tie to for a boy bear for more formal occasions too (tee hee).  Take a peek at THIS post for a girly girl panda ;).

There's a set of individual lanterns in the Panda Hair Don't Care set and I colored them for this card with copic markers.  

The sentiments are punny and fun and definitely go perfectly as an addition to your Panda Butt set.  If you "get" this sentiment you're probably close to may age ;), I used to love this song when I was a kid, still do!

All the black parts of the bear are open to color, I chose to go with the traditional black and white panda for this project but you can certainly have fun with that too.  Oooh, that makes me want to make a paper pieced panda, hmmm to be continued ;)!

I hope you enjoyed today's post, have a pandastic day (I couldn't resist)!

PAPER DOOR - Panda Butt is Back!

Look who's back by popular demand...it's PANDA BUTT!  This PAPER DOOR kit sold out in less than 3 days back in May so Whimsy Stamps has decided to re-release this kit for the August PAPER DOOR release.  Now's your chance to get it if you missed out in May, I'd RUN and order it now!  

And now to share with you my post today for some Panda Butt inspiration.  
This little guy just cracks me up, he is using his very best Kung Fu to sneak up on someone.

I used the new Grass and Cloud Edger die to create the grass.  The little white clouds are from the Stitched Cloud die set

You can make your own ninja panda card with the Aug. PAPER DOOR kit and a couple other Whimsy Stamps products that you may already have.  

You can see everything included in this months kit in an un-boxing video HERE.  
Order you Panda Butt PAPER DOOR kit today!

You're Mermazing

I made my little underwater scene using the Sweet and Salty  mermaid stamp set.  I stamped everything on cold pressed water color paper with Versafine black ink.

The coral reef is all one stamp so it makes an easy ocean floor.  The sentiment was stamped after everything was dry.

I colored the images with distress ink cubes, which is my favorite way to water color ;o).

This was a really quick and easy card, stamp the images in black, a quick water coloring, and matted onto a black card base.  Done.

Stained Glass Flamingos

If you're lovin' the Whimsy Stamps stained glass collection as much as I am, then you'll be excited to know they have released 2 more rubber stamps this month!  
Here is one of the new summer images called Stained Glass Flamingos.

These stained glass stamps may look complicated but they actually make coloring a breeze!  They are kind of like paint by numbers and are perfect for coloring with Copic markers and other coloring mediums.

I just stamped in Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers.  Once colored I matted onto black then onto a pink card base.  Super easy peasy!

Purre Love Purple Paws

Here's a card made with a Whimsy Stamps August new release stamp set called Purre Love.  A purrfect set for making cards for the cat lover in your life.

I also used the Puppy Paws background stamp for the circle of purple puppy paws ;).

The Purre Love cat was stamped with Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers.
And the sentiment was stamped with Versafine black ink which is my favorite for crisp results.  The sentiment is so true...LOVE cats and their attitudes!

For a little extra interest I added a couple sequins from my stash.  Have a PURRfect day :)!

Manure Happens

Well, that's one of the nicer ways of putting it isn't it - lol?!  For this card I started out with a white piece of card stock and sponged on some green ink with the Farmhouse Greenery stencil.  Then I wrapped around some gingham ribbon (from my stash) and matted onto a black card base.

The cow and sentiment are from the Farmhouse Vases set and were simply stamped in black ink.

Hope you enjoyed this play on words using the Farmhouse Vases stamp set.  Have a great day!

Salt Life Eclipse

The Seashell Background is a must-have for all your "salt life" projects, it's perfect for beachy backgrounds and for eclipse cards like this one. 
For this card I heat embossed the background in white on watercolor paper.  Then I used distress inks and the wet on wet water coloring technique to "float" on the color variations.  

Once the background was dry I used the New Bold ABC dies and cut out the SALT letters.  Then I matted the background onto a black card base and attached the letters with foam tape.  I offset the letters so a little of the black would show through so the letters would pop more. 

The "LIFE" sentiment is from the Farmhouse Vases set and it was stamped in black on a scrap of white cardstock and cut at an angle.  The 3 little glittery dots are (aptly named) Ivory Seashell Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Do you live the Salt Life...maybe you're doing something salty this weekend?  Whatever your plans happen to be salty or not, I hope you have a great day.
