It’s not Deb, but it’s a Panda!

Yep, it’s me, Nancy…and a panda!

I have a friend who asked me to make a special birthday tile for another friend who loves Panda’s. I looked at panda’s I could trace but all came up short, so I went to Etsy and searched for a panda cutting file. There I found the sweetest panda set. I then designed the tile using the pandas and text.

 

I then decided it was too cute to stop at a tile so I downsized the panda and made some cards!

Aren’t they sweet!

Panda with heart

At the school I work at, one of our sayings, since the Panda is our mascot, is that we are pandas with heart. I found a cute stamp set at the swap meet and had been wanting to make a Panda-piecing card for awhile. A few months back, I did a print and cut, but I wanted to do paper-pieced one.

I found this cute little dude at this site

But I didn’t want the hat. It was cute… but I wanted him to be plain, so I imported into Inkscape

I deleted the hat (even though it was cute), but I was left with a squashed face, so I easily stretched the head until I had this:

I pieced it all together and ended up with this:

On the inside, I stamped the saying from my new stamp set:
