Hi Crafty Friends,
Have you seen the amazing NEW Bamboo Backdrop Die from Kat Scrappiness?! It’s perfect for Pandas, Sloths, and all the Jungle Creatures in your stash! I made some samples for you using Stewart the Sloth and Gerda Steiner’s Lovely Panda. You can find both in the store!

Q: What is your favorite jungle animal?
A: Me? Pandas! I wrote a book report on them in 3rd grade and have loved them ever since!
Card #1: Stewart the Sloth- Sorry I Was Slow
I started by die cutting my Bamboo Backdrop using kraft paper that I splattered with white, green and brown watercolors. It’s IMPORTANT to use a Metal Adapter Plate with this die because it’s VERY detailed. This adapter plate is AMAZING for all delicate and detailed dies. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
I created my base by just splattering it with the same watercolors. Then I colored up Stewart the Sloth and stamped the Belated Birthday Sentiment, die cutting it out using the Stitched Rope Rectangle Die.
I added Stewart, some tropical leaves and framed my sentiment in green and mounted it to my shaker.
Card #2: Wild About You Mr. Panda!
For this card, I created a more Tropical Scene. I mounted the Bamboo Backdrop Die on a bright green base card. Then I added a strip of Tropical Flower paper across the center.
I finished my card with some tropical flowers and glued little Kat Scrappiness Orange Jewels to the centers of all the flowers, it was tedious but turned out awesome!
