I fell in love with the Kind Koala stamp when the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog came out this year. He is just so darned cute. At this month's Stamp of the Month Class which featured the For Peep's Sake stamp set, I wanted to show them you could use the stamp for more than just Easter. I saw this card on Pinterest (sorry I forgot who designed it) and made a few little tweaks).
Isn't he just the cutest! The base of the card is Calypso Coral — I think that is my new favorite color — it works so well for spring cards and projects. I added a piece of Neutrals Crumb Cake DSP and a strip of DSP from the Stacked with Love DSP pack.
The Koala stamp has words on it — I cut the Thinking of You words (which can still be added any time). I inked up the Koala with Soft Suede ink and then used a Post-it Note to cover up the "YOU" under the Koala and stamped on the Whisper White panel. When you put the Post-It Note over the word you kind of cover the bottom of the Koala so after I stamped him I took a Soft Suede marker and drew over the bottom of him to make sure it shows. I colored him with the Crumb Cake marker and the inside of his ears and his nose with the Crisp Cantaloupe marker. The "Bloom" with the tulip stamp is from the For Peep's Sake stamp set — I inked that up with markers and stamped.
Isn't this card adorable — love it.
