Sweet Stamp Shop November Release!

Hey there Sweet-y Peeps! Today kicks off the official release for November at The Sweet Stamp Shop! Welcome Welcome!! Maybe you have come from their BLOG or maybe you're just stopping in? If so, you can click over and see all that the design team has in store for you after you take a look.

If you haven't already, you have to see these sweet pandas. They are really adorable!

I made a long shaker card with my pandas. I have these manilla tags that are just so fun to use. I inked mine up using some Distress Ink and then punched three squares using my 3/4" square punch.
I covered the windows with some acetate and then made a little frame of foam adhesive to hold in my sparkles! (I remember traveling to Washington D.C. when I was 7 years old and we visited the zoo. My first ever panda experience! I loved it so much I bought myself some postcards featuring the panda and I still have them! I have always had a soft spot in my heart for the animal (and the colours white and black ;) And now I have them in my stamp arsenal. These are bound to make anyone smile. So use them up!

Ok, next I have a scalloped circle card. I used the chopsticks to make a 'circle' in the background. And then coloured my little panda and his pho noodles and popped them up in front. Yo! Hands off the Chops!! (That cute face could never be mad at you....)

I coloured everything with Copics. With the cheeks I used the R20 and then ran over it with my colourless blender to help mellow it out a bit. I think it worked pretty well. I also used this same technique to add some grey highlights to the tummy and face.

Here is a little closeup of the opening of the card.

And just another one because I think its so cute.... Man I'm like a grandma with a brag book! I can't stop showing you my cute little grandkid! (and his bowl)

Cutie little face....Go on, admit that I am right.

OK, and I've got a slew of manila tags and this looks like one fabulous way to use them in a different way. Definitely a design to remember. TFS.
