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 Scrappiness“Embossed 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.
