Guest Designer: Amy Kolling

Hi everyone!  It’s Amy Kolling here for my first guest post for The Ton!  I am so excited for this month and the opportunity to work with all The Ton’s awesome stamps.  For my first project, I decided to use the adorable Panda Can’t Even stamp set.  
Panda Can't Even
One of the hardest things about the Panda Can’t Even stamp set was choosing which panda to use!  I created my card with a certain person in mind…..my daughter.  I stamped the panda with black ink and hand trimmed out (but there are dies!).

To start my card, I adhered a piece of black/white striped paper to a top folding white notecard.  To a white cardstock panel, I blended Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink to the center in a circular pattern.  The beauty of clear stamps is that you can curve them.  So for my sentiment, I curved the “you’re the greatest” sentiment and stamped it with black ink.  I stamped a few stars in red ink and then added some random dots with a black micron pen.  My panda was added to the scene with foam adhesive.

To finish, I added 2 pinked edges of black cardstock to either side and adhered the whole panel with foam adhesive to the striped notecard.
Thanks so much for joining me here today!
