Thank you Card

Hello Everyone!
I needed a quick Thank you Card and as often happens my mind went blank!  I then looked over and saw my Party Pandas stamp set and was inspired to make this card.  The Party Pandas stamp set is only available for a limited time during Stampin Up! Salebration.


Party Pandas stamp set, Artistically Asian stamp set, Water color paper (or Whisper White card stock) (4 x 5 1/4), Watermelon Wonder cardstock (4 1/8 x 5 3/8), Whisper White cardstock (8 1/2 x 5 1/2) folded in half, Basic Gray ink pad, Sahara Sand ink pad, Soft Sky ink pad, Basic Gray ink pad, Watermelon Wonder Stampin' Write marker, Old Olive Stampin' Write marker, Always Artichoke Stampin' Write marker, Stazon black ink, sponge, tape runner or glue.


1.  Place your panda image on your water color paper so that you can decide where your other images will be placed.  Once you have decided on the proper placement stamp the panda image in Stazon ink.  You can try Basic Black ink but the image may smear/run when you sponge the background and color the balloon.
2.  After stamping the panda, tear a piece of scrap paper for masking off the upper portion of the card while you sponge in the ground.  With your sponge, first sponge on the Sahara Sand and then define the ground by lightly sponging with Basic Gray.
3.  Sponge the upper portion of the image with Soft Sky taking care to not sponge the panda image.  Then sponge around the outer edge of the image with Basic Gray.
4.  With the bamboo image from Artistically Asian, use your Stampin Write markers to ink the stamp.  Remember to "huff" on  your stamp after you apply the ink so that the ink is re-moistened.  Stamp the image.  I used the mask from earlier to block off the lower portion of the card when I stamped the bamboo on the left of the image.
5.  Glue/tape the panda image to the Watermelon Wonder card stock leaving a small border around the outer edge.  Glue the Watermelon Wonder to the Whisper White card base.
