A Trio of Party Pandas. A Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

Hello there,
Today I have a card you may have seen a sneak peek of, either on Instagram or Facebook before I made it into a card? If you like social media you can follow me on a few platforms (more links at the end of the post) for lots of sneak peeks and to see what I'm doing most days :-)
So, I was having a play with the Party Pandas when I realised they would make a great party together by masking three (or try even more) of these little guys together...
I started by stamping the centre panda (on this card) first before stamping him again on a post-it-note. Then I trimmed him out and laid the post-it- note image over the first image before stamping again, either side.
After you remove the post-it-note you could add it to one of the side pandas to make the conga line longer or pop it in the stamp case for when you want to do this again ;-)
TIP 1: Remember when masking to stamp the image you want at the front of your scene and work backwards.
TIP 2: If any of the areas don't stamp perfectly (as I've found often happens when masking) then just colour in the missing areas using a blender pen, dipped in the ink pad you used to stamp.
TIP 3: I like to leave the tiny white line between the pandas as they are all the same colour (see arms and legs) to show the distinction between the separate pandas. Although that's not actually how they would look IRL, I think it works well for these same colour images.
I coloured these pandas very simply with my blends before layering over small silver sequin trim on some Picture Perfect DSP.
I do hope you have enjoyed today's card? I have another busy day ahead with both house stuff and crafty stuff too :-) I hope you enjoy your Wednesday!
Thanks so much for looking today, I'll be back soon with more.

A Good Day, Baby Deer Card.

And welcome to my Cards and a Cuppa blog at the start of another week! I can hardly believe it's almost February already!! Feb is a busy month for us personally as we have not just one, but three birthdays at the end of the month here *--* I had better get making some cards then, right?! Lol.
OK, back to today's cute little notecard. I used the new narrow notecards and added in some more of that yummy Bubbles and Fizz SaB paper, I love all the patterns but those that are the "reverse" of the main papers are just gorg...
This adorable little deer frm "A Good Day" was stamped in Memento and coloured with blends.
TIP: I find the brush end of these Blends markers better for small images.
I used the new small (1+1/8" and 1+3/8") scalloped circle punches again as these images are just the perfect for the size for them, but you could also use circle framelits if you don't have the punches :-)
I then used a small circle of glimmer paper to give the image a little frame :-)
How adorable is this deer? Well, there's not a bad image in this set IMO! #supercute
OK, that's all from me for today. I hope you've enjoyed today's card? I have a day of wardrobe staining ahead of me :-/ But, at least I'll be able to tidy our clothes once it's done :-)
I hope you get a chance to craft today,

Epic Celebrations Guitar in Tranquil Tide

Hi there and happy Sunday to you!
Today I have a fun card I made right at the beginning of the month using the FREE SaB stamps "Epic Celebrations" in Tranquil Tide. I love TT more and more as the months go on, it's a really great bluey-tealy-green colour <3 nbsp="" p="">Anyway, I digress slightly, let's see this card, shall we?
I stamped the background using the guitar in smoky slate
Then the main image with Memento ink, on thick white card, before using my aqua painter and ink pads to colour the image.
Add in a little champagne foil paper tag under the mat and that's it!
So, I hope you have a lovely rest of the weekend and I'll be back tomorrow with another card :-)
Thanks for looking today,

Using the "A Good Day" Bunny by Stampin' Up!

Hello there, I hope you are all looking forward to the weekend?
I'm here today to share a little cuteness and fun with you using this super adorable bunny from the "A Good Day" stamp set...
I coloured this bunny with my Stampin' Blends pens before punching with one of the new scalloped circle punches* and layering it with the (also new) slightly larger size - super quick!
*both in the S/S catalogue
 This paper across this card is the SaB one - "Bubbles and Fizz" in Bermuda Bay, doesn't it look lovely teamed with some Blushing Bride? Who knew?
Oh, and those teeny little stars in the background are from the Magical Day stamp set ;-)

 And check out that cutie patootie mini embroidery hoop!! *swoon*
It just makes that cute little image the centre of attention on this card!
 Right, that's todays make for you, are you loving this set too? I have made quite a few cards with it already so I do hope so ;-)
Thanks so much for looking today...
