Hello and thanks for stopping by today! Do you know anyone with a December birthday? Do they feel they get lost in the holiday shuffle? My hubby has a birthday in December and we as a family go out of our way to make his birthday special, just so he does feel our love and affection for him. I’m honored to have been asked to participate in a cardmaking blog hop to celebrate the special folks who all have December Birthdays. Be sure to see the link up below to hop around all of the cardmaker’s blogs for lots and lots of birthday card inspiration.

Party Panda stamp set
Who remembers last year’s Sale-A-Bration most popular stamp set…. Hey Chick? Did yo make a chicken card? I made more than my share and still am asked about that stamp set. This year’s big hit will certainly be Party Panda. With several panda images to choose from, there are endless possibilities for December birthdays.
How to mask an image
The first project I’m creating with this stamp set is a birthday card for my hubby. I’m thinking he will like it! Easy to stamp images always inspire me to step it up just a bit so I’m using this stamp set to create a group of pandas with the masking technique.
My favorite way to mask an image is as easy as following a few steps. Step 1: stamp an image on a sticky note and fussy cut (make as many of these as you need for your project). Step 2: Stamp the first image, onto the panel, that you’ll want to stand out in front. By covering it up for protection, those that are stamped behind it will appear in the background. Step 3: repeat step 2 until you have finished adding your images. Step 4: remove the sticky notes and save them for another project if you like. You now have a group of images that appear as a crowd.
