I enjoyed making a card to enter into the first TGIF Challenge. I love the color combination of Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral and Pool Party!
I was so happy to see that the Kind Koala stamp is not on the Stampin' Up! Retiring List. I wanted to use this cute stamp again and decided to fussy cut the cute koala from some Crumb Cake card stock. I used a blender pen to add some Crumb Cake ink to the ears. The blender pen also allowed me to add Crushed Curry ink to the flower petals.
I originally intended to die cut a Crushed Curry oval to layer on my card until I realized that I am out of Crushed Curry card stock. Another easy way to add a pop of color is to ink the edges of your card stock with the Stamping Sponges.
Here is my finished card:
Stamp: Kind Koala
Card stock: Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, and Crumb Cake
Ink: Black Staz On, Crumb Cake, and Crushed Curry
Tools: Blender Pends, Big Shot, Oval Framelits, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Stamping Sponges, Scissors, Trimmer
Accessories: Pool Party Baker's Twine (retired) & button (from the Everyday Occasions kit)
The new Stampin' Up! catalog goes live on June 2, 2015. Based on the demonstrator preview, this is my favorite catalog in my 6 years of stamping. If you do not have a demonstrator and want a free copy of this catalog (US only), feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Thank you for visiting my blog!
Super cute card! It is such a major bummer when you realize you are out of something mid-project. Great save to sponge the edges instead! Thanks for joining us at TGIF!
