Thinking of You (CDD May Release Day 3)

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Craftin Desert Divas Day 3 of our May Release Showcase!

For the next few days we are going to highlight our new products by sharing the fabulous Design Team's projects for each stamp set! We have 6 new stamp sets, 1 new die & 3 new sequin mixes that will be available in the shop starting this Friday!

Today we are showcasing the Prickly and This & That stamp sets. I made a card for you featuring the This & That sentiment stamp set.
To create this card I used along the new This & That sentiment set an older set called Panda Pals ( I stamped the panda with black ink and colored him in with watercolor markers. I also stamped a little heart from the Wildly Cute ( stamp set with red ink.

To ground the little panda, I applied green color to mix media paper and die cut it with one of the scallop circle dies from the Stitched in Circles die set ( To give it a little bit more texture, I spritzed it with water and dabbed it off after a few seconds. Because the water is reacting with the ink, the ink will be lifted from the paper giving it a really nice effect. 
Since I wanted to emboss the sentiment thinking of you in gold, I wanted to incorporate this color a second time. I embossed a larger area on white card stock with gold embossing powder and die cut the wreath from the same die set from it. 

To assemble my card I adhered the wreath to the green scallop circle and also adhered the panda to it using 3D foam pads. On a white notecard, I embossed the sentiment in gold and placed the circle in the bottom left corner. 

The This & That sentiment set will be revealed on Friday.
