Upgraded Party Panda Card

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Mix It UP! Monday and I have an upgraded version of the card I shared with you yesterday.  I used the exact same product that was used to create yesterday's card ....... but added a couple additional products (found in the 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog) to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is my Sunday Party Panda card on the LEFT.....
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday Party Panda card on the RIGHT.... 
For my upgraded Mix-It-UP! Monday version ....... I pulled out all the stop and really kicked this Party Panda up a whole new level.
I stamped my 'Party Panda' FREE Sale-a-Bration image onto the same Whisper White panel as I did yesterday.......but for today I added an extra layer of color to that panel.
For my 'Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper'.......I created a fun little banner flag and positioned that banner right down the center of my card.  All I needed to do to finish off that banner flag was add my Party Panda panel directly onto the center of that banner flag.
For my Soft Sky base card ....... I ran the front panel of that through my Big Shot using the 'Oh My Stars' Embossing Folder'.
The finishing touch was adding some 'Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine' around the spin of my card and hanging some (now retired) Bermuda Bay Sequins to that Baker's Twine.
I'm just crazy about both of these cards......
Do you have a favorite????
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a 3-D Tuesday creation with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Happy Birthday Panda!

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for March 2018. This month our theme is Last Call for Sale-a-Bration.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Kards by Kadie or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the amazing projects prepared for you.

Check out what just happens to be my FAVORITE Sale-a-Bration item.

I started my card out by stamping this ADORABLE 'Party Panda' image onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  Next, I added the Happy Birthday sentiment that came with the 'Party Panda' set in the lower section of that Whisper White panel.
The FREE Sale-a-Bration 'Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper' was the perfect addition to add across the center of my card......
And the finishing touch was adding some 'Pearl Basic Jewels' that were colored with my 'Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends' around the front of my card.
So there you have it friends.........
A fun little birthday card for the Remarkable/InkBig Blog Hop.

8-Square Thank You Card

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Paper Pumpkin Saturday ........... And I would like to share with you the project I created using the February Paper Pumpkin kit.   Here's that alternate project for you.........
I'm just crazy about the way this card turned out.
I cut the Designer Series paper that came with this kit into eight little 3/4" squares.  Then I matted each of those 3/4" squares onto a 1" Real Red square.
Before I adhered the eight matted squares down onto my card ........ I used Real Red ink to stamp my thank you sentiment and then quickly sprinkled it with clear embossing powder to give it some real shine!
I attached  some Baker's Twine that was included in the kit around the center of my card ....... taking care to bring that Baker's Twine right under the stamped sentiment.
And that's all it took to create this alternate card with the February kit.
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a Spot Light Sunday card with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

March Thank You Tags

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Tag Thursday.  Today, I will feature a few tags I created and show you how easy it is to use minimal supplies to create a SUPER PRETTY TAG.  Now that you have the details for my Tag Thursday share for today.........Let's jump right in and see what I created. 
Check out these fun thank you tags I made for my March customer orders.
Each tag starts out with a 5" x 5" piece of cardstock......
And then I scored them at 2-1/2".
I added a 2-1/2" x 5" piece of Designer Series Paper to the front of each tag.....
And used my paper trimmer to trim off a small section of the front. 
All I needed to do was adhere the bottom and right hand edge of each tag with some Tear n' Tape ......... And this created a fun little pocket for my thank you card to slip inside.
Here's what the thank you card on the inside pocket looks like.
Decorating the front of each tag was as easy as wrapping some Baker's Twine around the bottom section and adding some layering circles and a stamped sentiment. 
I'm just crazy about the way these tags turned out.........
And think my customers will enjoy the little surprise
that will be attached to each of their orders.
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share some Friends Friday creations with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!.

Hedgehog Reflection Card

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Wine-Down Wednesday.  My middle of the week card feature for today will hopefully offer you some inspiration and provide you with some motivation to keep you moving through your busy week.  Let's jump right in with my card share for today........
This sweet little hedgehog card was creating using the 'Reflection Stamping Technique'.
I started out by stamping my sentiment from the 'Hedgehugs' set with Soft Suede ink in the upper right hand corner of my little notecard.
Next, I stamped my hedgehog from that same set in the center of my Whisper White notecard.
The reflection of the hedgehog was stamped onto one of the 'Silicone Craft Sheets' (you can also use the clear sheet that comes with the 'Stamp-a-ma-jig') with Soft Suede ink.  All it takes to create the reflection is to flip the craft sheet or clear sheet over and position it so it's going to line up right below your stamped hedgehog.  Then........lay that sheet down directly onto your notecard.
You will want to create some firm pressure to transfer all the ink from the 'Silicone Craft Sheet' to your notecard.  The image will transfer lighter than your stamped image ....... Which is the look you are going for (hence the look of a refelection).
All that was left to do was mask off the top stamped hedgehog area with a piece of scrap copy paper.  I then filled my 'Stampin' Spritzer' with some water and several drops of Pool Party re-inker.  A couple quick sprays of the spritzer and I had the look of water created on my notecard.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow with a Tag Thursday creation to share with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
