Hey Crafters! Priscilla here! By now you’ve probably seen the new Kat Scrappiness “Hoppy for You” kangaroo stamp set. I don’t think there’s a lot of kangaroo stamps on market, so it makes this set even more special!
I’ve had such fun using this stamp set and created four cards for you today. Let’s get started!
My first card features “Kanga” deep in the jungle. (Note my “creative license” because I don’t think kangaroos live in that environment! LOL!)
For this card, I used the Kat Scrappiness “Foliage Frame” die and some patterned paper from my stash to create a “jungle” frame around the kangaroo. I used various shades of blue distress oxide inks on a fern patterned embossing folder for the background. “Kanga” was colored with the new-to-me Spectrum Noir “Tri-Blend Markers” and die cut using my Brother “Scan n Cut” machine.
I finished off the card with the “I Love ‘Roo” sentiment from the stamp set and some of Kat’s “Sparkling Clear Jewels.”
My second card features “Kanga” in the spotlight ready to present his “significant other” with a flower.
I used a MFT stencil and Distress White ink to create a spotlight on navy blue card stock. A star stencil and silver pigment ink finished the background. Once again I used the Spectrum Noir “Tri-Blend Markers” to color “Kanga” and the flowers, before die cutting them using my Brother “Scan n Cut” machine.
I used Kat‘s “Sparkling Clear Droplets” to connect “Kanga” to his speech bubble.
For my third card, “Kanga” is posing for a “Selfie” with his buddies.
To make this card, I stamped “Kanga” and them masked him off and stamped the “Photo Bomb” stamp (from Mama Elephant) over the mask. I colored both the kangaroo and his friends with alcohol markers. I also used a M.E. die to cut out the image to look like an Instagram frame and found a template on Pinterest that had the appropriate symbols for the bottom margin.
I used patterned paper from the Simple Stories “Say Cheese” collection and some black card stock die cut with Kat‘s “Cross Stitched Rectangle” die for the base layer. Some of Kat‘s hearts were the final touch to this card.
My final card would be perfect for a “New Mom.”
I created a soft background with Distress Oxide inks and MFT cloud and grass stencils. Note the pouch stamped on Mama Kangaroo’s belly. This is an additional stamp in the set just for that purpose. I cut a slit in it before inserting Baby, with some flowers from the stamp set added behind. The sentiment was stamped on one of Kat’s “Stitched Fishtail Banner” dies, a butterfly from the “Crafters Essentials-Easter Edition” die set was added, with a balloon die from my stash for the finishing touch.
