Kangaroo & Company Bundle - Happy Birthday Handmade Mini Slimline Card - Stampin' Up!

Hello My Crafting Friends,

Today I am sharing my first the Stampin’ Up 2021 Artisan Design Team showcase project for April 2021.

If you would like to see all my projects together you can visit my blog post here: 

For this card I wanted to focus on using the Kangaroo & Company Bundle with the Sweet Little Valentines Cards & More Pack. I love the fun designs and colors that come in the Cards & More pack and think they add the perfect touch to my cards. For this card I used the pattern inside the envelopes for a fun background to this mini Slimline Card. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and that it inspires you to create something beautiful today.

1- Stamp the three Kangaroo’s in Early Espresso Ink and color using the Bronze, Ivory, & Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend Markers. Use any combination. I always did the darker color on the body and lighter for the little elements like, ears, nose, belly. Cut out with coordinating dies.

2- Stamp 3 groupings of presents in Memento Black Ink and color with the coordinating Stampin’ Blend Markers. I used Melon Mambo, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, & Old Olive. Cut out with coordinating dies.

3- On each 1 7/8” square of cardstock (Melon Mambo, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz) use the small square from the Stitched With Whimsy Dies to add the cute stitched details.

4- Cut two envelopes from the Sweet Little Valentine Pack down to 3 1/8” x 3 ¼”. Add both to the front of the cardbase. Cover the seam with the ½” strip of Gold Foil wrapped with 12” of White Bakers Twine with the bow on the right.

5- Create little vignettes within each square with one Kangaroo & one group of presents. Add to the card at angles with dimensionals. Remove the bottom of any Kangaroos that come off the edge.

6- Stamp the greeting “Hopping by” without the “HI” by using a small piece of washi tape and covering the “HI” only. Ink the stamp in Memento Black ink and then remove the washi tape. Then stamp in a circle about 1 1/8” in diameter from the Layering Circle Dies as close to the top as you can. Then ink “It’s your day” and stamp in the opening between the lines. Add to the card with dimensionals in the open space on the Pool Party square.

7- Add three Opal Rounds.

All Done!
