Hi! Happy Friday and end of the work week! Today I have 2 cards to share with you featuring the soon-to-be gone Kangaroo & Company! This set is adorable and perfect for welcoming a new little one, celebrating a birthday, or just wanting to let someone know you are thinking of them.
Let’s talk about this adorable baby card. The base is Balmy Blue followed by a layer of Basic Black. The Designer Series Paper is from the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper pack which is retiring at the end of the month.
The kangaroo is stamped in Memento Black Ink and colored with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and Flirty Flamingo for the ear. The baby is colored with Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend and Flirty Flamingo as well. The coordinating dies in the bundle are used to die cut both. The mama die also cuts a slit for her pouch so baby can get tucked in!
The sentiment is stamped in Balmy Blue and the hears in Flirty Flamingo. The Ovals were die cut with the now retired Layering Ovals and Stitched Shapes dies. I had sent this card to my nephew and his wife on the arrival of their little boy.
For the second card, I decided to do a sponged background for my focal point. I created a template using the piece of cardboard that comes in the Designer Series Paper – cut down to the same size as my image panel – in this case 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ – and then die cut an oval from the center. Lay the template over your Basic White cardstock and sponge Pear Pizzazz for the grass and Balmy Blue for the sky. Remove the template and you have your sponged background.
The grass was stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink. The flowers, butterfly and kangaroo were stamped in Memento Black Ink. The kangaroo was colored with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. The flowers were colored with Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends. The butterfly was colored with the light and dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends. All three pieces were die cut with their coordinating dies. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Black ink.
The base of the card is Gorgeous Grape with a layer of Highland Heather on top.
