Party Paws: Bamboo Sneak Peek!

Good evening (or I guess night here on the East coast.) I am so excited for this next release from Crafter's Companion, I love it so very much! The panda named Bamboo, well...he is adorable. I love coloring him. Panda bears rock, and this panda is no exception. This is from the soon-to-be-released Party Paws range:

 Agreed? These adorable stamps are hitting the Crafter's Companion store on March 6th, I know you just can't wait to get your hands on this adorable little panda bear! I had so much fun with this card...I started with the paper piecing. I paper pieced with Glitz Cashmere Dame - Chevrons (obviously the opposite side, a lovely red damask print.) I colored the bow with Lemon Ice Stickles, and colored Bamboo with my Spectrum Noir pens (IG5, IG8 IG10, HB1, HB2, and HB3.)

 I used Freckled Fawn washi underneath, that was actually my inspiration for the project. The arrows and the heart (which helped tie in the red wonderfully) just matched perfectly with the Glitz paper so well. Add a Royal Lace doily underneath, Queen & Co. bling on the sentiment, and some white machine stitching and this card is done! Simple, but so sweet!
 I love stitching, especially machine stitching!
The washi has that wonderful red heart, bringing a bit more red to the project.

There you have it! I hope you hit up the Crafter's Companion store as soon as this range is available (March 6th, mark your calendar!!) I love this adorable panda, he is so fun to color!
