Today I thought I would post one of the cards from my first Memory Box class at Angela's Happy Stamper in Reston, VA. The class is called "Panda"mania, and will be held on Sunday, Feb 22 from 12-2 pm. I hope you can make it!
To make this card, I stamped the Party Panda (C1224) onto white cardstock using black Memento ink. I colored the hat with various Copic markers and then shaded the base of the panda with Copic marker C-1 for extra definition. I punched out the image with a circle punch and layered it onto a larger pink circle. The gorgeous patterned paper is part of the new Butterfield 6" x 6" collection. To finish the panda, I added some pink Stardust pen to the sparklers as well as the top of the hat.
I am including a close-up of the cupcake (A1210) to show you how great it looks if you use liquid applique for the frosting. Yum!
To make the cupcake embellishment, I stamped the image onto pink cardstock using brown Versafine ink. I then coated the top with liquid applique and heated it with an embossing gun to make it puffy. One word of advice...heat the applique from underneath so that you don't scorch it and turn it brown. As a final touch, I added a cute pink rhinestone to the top of the cupcake and stamped "happy birthday" (B1228) onto my eggshell cardstock with black Versafine ink.
