Rainbow Panda Play Valentines
Posted on January 13 2020
Hello! The Open Hearts Collection from LDRS Creative is just PERFECT for Valentine's Day ( and other occasions, too! ) I used the Stitched Heart dies and Panda Play stamps and a bunch of LDRS Creative Hybrid Inks to create a duo of rainbow Valentine's Day cards!
I took each of the Stitched Heart dies and temporarily taped them onto a piece of white cardstock and die cut them with my die cutting machine. I love that these dies leave stitched details on the positive and negative parts of the die cuts. This inspired me to create two cards out of one! I created one card with ink blending behind the die cuts and one card with ink blending directly on the die cuts.
I used the same colors of inks for both cards - Lipstick Jungle, In Your Face Orange, Dan-D-Lion, Key Lime Pie, Bali Blue, and Plum Crazy. For one card I blended the inks onto an extra piece of cardstock to lay behind the negative die cut piece. I also blended the same ink colors onto the positive Stitched Heart die cuts.
I stamped the Love Stack sentiment stamp set onto white cardstock and used the Sentiment Stack coordinating die to cut out a bunch of sentiment strips at once. I am TOTALLY IN LOVE with these sentiment stacks and coordinating die! I can easily stamp a bunch of sentiments and cut them out and store them with the stamp set so I have a sentiment already stamped, cut, and ready to go! I was going to leave the cards just as the rainbow ink blending and sentiment strips, but I decided a cute little panda from the Panda Play stamp set would be the perfect pop of black! I stamped the Panda Play images and cut them out with the coordinating dies and added everything to my cards with foam tape.
