Incoming Mail with Nichol

Hello stamping friends! Nichol here today with a Designer Series card featuring the new Incoming Mail Stamp Set and coordinating dies. I paired the sweet images from Incoming Mail with the Sew Fancy circle dies and greetings from the Surprise Sentiments Stamp Set. Pastel Distress Ink colors add to the sweet and soft feel of this card.

For the background of the card, I die cut three circles from the Sew Fancy Creative Cuts Die Collection from watercolor cardstock. I applied Shaded Lilac, Spun Sugar, and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks to the panel with the Ink Blending Tool and then spritzed the ink with water from a Distress Sprayer, let the water sit for about 20-30 seconds and then blotted it dry with a paper towel.
I stamped a greeting using phrases from the Surprise Sentiments Stamp Set using black ink.
I stamped the panda images from the Incoming Mail Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock and colored in the images with Copic Markers. I die cut the images with the coordinating Incoming Mail Creative Cuts Dies and then added detail to the pandas with black and white glaze pens. I added glitter to the hearts with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pens.

I adhered the rectangle panel to a white top fold card base with foam adhesive. I replaced the circles inside the die cut areas, adhering directly to the card base. I adhered the pandas peeking from the circle "windows" as shown.

I finished the card design with a scattering of confetti, sequins, and gemstones.
