Hi All!

It has been awhile since I used my PanPastels, so I thought I would break them out for this Center Cut Geometric Pattern stamp. I did a video series about a year ago on PanPastels – you can find all the videos HERE.

I embossed my Happy sentiment with Black Sparkle. Here is a close-up:

    What a great card Darlene to end the week! I love my Pan Pastels too and try to use them every few months. I also have a similar geometric background stamp that I can use. Love the way you positioned the small ‘birthday’ through the y and p on the large’ Happy’. Clever girl! That black sparkle embossing powder really makes the Happy stand out too. This is one of those geometric cards I was talking about that could easily be sent to a man or woman. Happy Weekend!

    Love the rainbow colours! You didn’t use any water or fixative to seal the pastels, correct? I don’t recall hearing you say anything about it.😎

      Darlene doesn’t seem to need to do this but I prefer to use.any hairspray for this purpose because it works as well as the product specifically designed for this.

      Hi Carol. No, I don’t use anything. It’s not as smooth as cardstock, but it doesn’t rub off.

    Gorgeous! I love the background, and how the black & white greeting area pops against it. The way the Versamark works with the pan pastels is neat, too. I don’t think I’ve ever told you, but you “inspired” me to buy the WRMK circle dies a while back. I already had both sets of circle Nestabilities from Spellbinders, but didn’t like how wide the rim of each die is. If I wanted to cut a ring, I had to cut one circle, then position another circle die on that & run it through my machine again. Not a big deal, but still…! So, I finally broke down & got the We R Memory Keepers dies–and LOVE them! I really like how they are evenly “spaced,” with each die being 1/4″ larger than the next. Also makes it very easy to pick out an exact size of circle die! AND, I can nest 2–or more–dies at once–bonus! 😻 Anyway, thank you for the inspiration, to make my (crafty) life a little easier. Hope y’all have a great weekend, Darlene! 😺 ~ Andrea

      So glad you like your circles, Andrea! I really do love mine and find myself reaching for them all the time, as you probably noticed!

    Oh my gosh I could watch this over and over. I just love the way this came together and the sentiment really pops right off the card. Fabulous use of colours and while the background is busy I find it recedes back at the same time with the /black white matted circle. This just might be my new fave. ThNjs for the fab inspiration 😍
