“Koala-ty Time” | Birthday and Mother’s Day Cards

Hi Everyone, it’s Priscilla here. Today I have two cards that showcase the new stamp set in the Kat Scrappiness shop called “Koala-ty Time.”

My first card uses one of the two adorable koalas in the stamp set for a birthday card.


I colored the koala with the Stampin’-Up “Pool Party” alcohol markers and softened it out with a blender pen before die cutting it out using my Brother “Scan-n-Cut” machine.I also used the SU “Pool Party” ink pad to create a soft circle background for my koala. I stamped a line border with foliage on the left and bottom of the card using brown ink and painted the leaves with Distress Ink in “Evergreen Bough.” The sentiment, “Have a Koala-ty Birthday!” was stamped also with the “Evergreen Bough” ink. I used Kat‘s new “Brown Confetti Sprinkles” for a final touch.


My second card used the other koala image to create a Mother’s Day card.

I created a slimline card base(8.5″ x 3.5″) and added patterned paper, die cut with one of the new Kat ScrappinessEmbossed Edge Nesting Slimline Dies.”  Inside of that , I adhered a white panel, die cut with one of the new “Stitched Scalloped Nesting Slimline Dies.” I die cut the “Happy Mother’s Day” sentiment out of rust card stock and triple layered it for a 3-D effect.The mom & baby koala was colored with a gold-brown Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend marker and softened with a blender pen. I adhered the koala on a bed of foliage and flowers created with dies from my stash.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Don’t forget to check out what’s NEW in Kat’s Shop, and follow my blog and Instagram for more “Kat Scrappiness Amazingness”!

    I love these koalas, especially since it’s mommy and child. But the background is so darned cute! I love the greenery. What a cute card.
