I have to tell you, I really am wild about this new release. Especially, all of the new critters! When the new stamps and dies arrived, I jumped right in and got busy. I made about a dozen cards in just a few days (which is a lot for me; I’m a slow crafter). I was so inspired, I just couldn’t stop playing. Here is a peek at some of them…
You may have seen a few of these in the new release videos from Heffy Doodle, and I’ll share more on them soon, but I have another brand new card I wanted to share today. It’s a quick and easy birthday card, featuring the new Koality Hugs Stamps and Dies. To keep it from feeling too plain, I used one of the new Whimsically Wonky Rectangle Dies to create a stitched border. If you’d like to recreate a card like this, grab these supplies and meet me in the craft room…
The first thing I did was stamp out my images and color them with Copic Markers. Whenever I get new stamps, I love to stamp out a lot of images, and take them to the couch to color. It’s relaxing while I watch TV with the family. Sidenote: a nice clipboard and Collapsible Marker Bags make it easy to take my coloring away from my desk. And I’ve found that my coloring sheets don’t slip around if you clip a stencil mat to the board. (I’m still deciding if I like that or not.) You can see the colors I used below. After I colored my images, I die cut them with the coordinating dies.
To allow my koala to hug the tree, I trimmed around his front arm and leg. Then, I outlined the cut edges with a black marker. For his hat, I trimmed the white border away at the bottom and again outlined the edge with a black marker, before gluing it to his head.
With the focal point ready to go, I created a simple background. After die cutting a white wonky stitched panel, I stamped the sentiment near the top, then ink blended light green ink below and added darker green splatter. I popped it up on a cream card base with foam tape. I really love white and cream combos, but I know not everybody does. You could swap it out for a kraft card base instead.
To finish the card, I popped the koala and tree up on the card with more foam tape. I considered adding a few green gems for sparkle, but decided against it. This card is just too cute as is! I paired it up with a light green envelope and called it done. Quick and easy! What do you think?
I love the way this card turned out and I hope I’ve inspired you to give it a try. If you’re ready for more inspiration, hop along with us!
