Sweet Things Koala Card

Good day crafty friends! This morning I was feeling a little fruity and this cute Koala stamp by Newton's Nook caught my eye. So, I decided to use the Inky Paws current sketch challenge to make this Sweet Things Koala Card. The image was stamped with Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers, then it was die cut with the coordinating die. The pineapple paper is from the Summer Fun paper pad and it was paired with a piece of green chevron paper from the Soak Up the Sun paper pad both by Echo Park. A little black and white gingham is peeking out and it's by The Paper Studio. The sentiment is by Impression Obsession and the yellow and white twine was the finishing touch. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

  1. I love Koala's, and my few attempts at trying to color one realistically, didn't work great. This one's a cutie...love that the background paper repeats the little pineapple that he's carrying. Also like the way you've done the layout. TFS & Hugs
