Koala Christmas

Today’s post is a really sweet Christmas card that I made using the Kind Koala #134360 single stamp from the current Stampin Up annual catalog.  I modified the stamped image by adding a punched  tree to cover up the flower that the koala is holding.  I also covered up the thinking of you sentiment with a Christmas sentiment.  The koala was colored in with the Stampin Up blendabilities. I added a piece of Cherry Cobbler striped ribbon  and mats and added it to a card base textured with the wood grain folder.2014_12_12IMG_4715

Kind Koala

2014_10_11IMG_5018A great big birthday shout out goes out to our Aunt BJ!! For today’s card, I used 2 pieces of  the Stampin Up Flowerpot DSP #133698 to make the colorful background for this card. For the main panel, I featured the single stamp-Kind Koala #134360 and colored it using the smoky slate assortment of Stampin Blendabilities to create a super cute and whimsical card.

2fer birthday

2014_08_07IMG_4717 Today is the 8th birthday of our twin niece and nephew so I am posting 2 completely different cards that I made them for their birthday.  The first card is the adorably girly card for Claire. I used the Stampin Up Flower Pot #133695 DSP for the background papers.  I then stamped created the focal panel using the Kind Koala #134360 from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  To color the cute koala I used the Smoky Slate blendabilities assortment #131005 and matted it on a piece of lost lagoon cardstock.  I added a scrap piece of Crushed Curry Chevron #130019 ribbon to add texture.

The Kind Koala stamp is one of many single stamps available from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  The single stamps are a low cost way to get started with stamping.

2014_08_07IMG_4719 The 2nd card is a “boyish” card for our nephew Dylan.  I made the gumball green background look quite grassy by texturing the background with square lattice textured impressions embossing folder.  I created the soccer ball by using the Hexagon Hive Thinlit #132965 and then cutting it out with a Circle framelit #130911.  I added the Geometrical #133161 expression on to a tag cut using the Chalk Talk Framelit #129983.  Super simple and I feel this card is a real kick in the grass kinda birthday card.
