Rainbow Blended Happy Birthday Card | Simon Says Stamp Party Like a Panda

Updated: Sep 14, 2020

Hello, and thank you so much for joining me this week!! I have a very colourful birthday card for you so let's jump right into it!!

To start as always I have cut down my paper, I have an A2 sized base, which when folded is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches I always make my panels 1/8th of an inch smaller than the next. Making the black panel 4 1/8 x 5 3/8's inches and the Bristol smooth cardstock I used to blend the clouds on 4 x 5 1/4 inches.

Using my Domed Foams I blended several Distress Oxide Inks to create the rainbow cloud background, I used Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, and Wilted Violet and the cloud stencil from My Favorite things.

I then stamped out the balloon's and the panda from the Simon Says Stamp Party like a Panda stamp set on some Neenah Solar White Cardstock in Gina K Amalgam Ink and used some Copic markers to colour in the images. I used RV00 for the Panda's paw, RV04, Y06, YG01, B04, Y38 and V04 for the balloons, hat and confetti around the Panda. Once everything was coloured I used my Tim Holtz Mini Snips to fussy cut out the panda and balloons.

I wanted to heat emboss a small sentiment to go under the balloons that said Happy Birthday, using the same heavyweight cardstock as I did for the black matte I white heat embossed the sentiment. I then glued the Balloons to the Panda's paw, holding them together with my reverse tweezers. While that dried I glued down my panels to my base.

I added some Brutus Monroe Foam tape to the back of my panda and balloon's to make it appear as though there's more dimension and the panda is flying through the air. After pulling off the release paper I positioned the panda down to the left side to hide a bit of blending booboo's. Once everything adhered I added a few Simon Says Stamp Moonshine Sequins. I have a step by step video posted below with a full supplies list.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I cannot wait to see you again next week.
