Happy Saturday crafters! I am up on the BRI blog today as a guest and I couldn’t be more excited!! I have a fun card to share with you today featuring the new and adorable Mama Elephant Little Panda Agenda! As soon as I saw this stamp set I knew I had to have it and I knew Vanessa would ship it out super fast because she’s awesome!!
This card was a labor of love but I am more than thrilled with the way it turned out! I first started with an ink blended panel using Distress Ink Oxides in Tumbled Glass, Dried Marigold, and Tattered Rose. I then adhered my ink blended panel directly on to my black card base. I had an idea that it would be cute for the pandas to be on bamboo, and I found the HelloBluebird Birch Tree Dies would be perfect! Once I ran the tree dies through my die cutting machine I colored the trees to look like bamboo using copic markers in YG07, YG25, G09 and G94. For the leaves I added some Nuvo Glaze for extra detail. I used some Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die and ran it through my die cutting machine using 2 different shades of green cardstock. It’s hard to tell but I “weaved” the bamboo in between the grass. I laid 2 stick of bamboo directly on my ink blended panel and then added the first layer of grass. I then adhered the remaining bamboo using foam adhesive and added the top layer of grass over the bamboo using foam adhesive as well.
I stamped my cute little pandas using Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink pad and ran through my die cutting machine with the matching Mama Elephant Little Panda Agenda coordinating dies I adhered my pandas in various spots to make it look like they were playing in the bamboo! For my sentiment, I used one from the Mama Elephant Beach Chickies stamp set and heat embossed using white embossing powder. I adhered on my card front using foam adhesive.
I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did making it!! And a big thanks for Vanessa at Butterfly Reflections Ink for inviting me to guest!! Make sure you stop by the shop to pick up these goodies!!
