Koala Fun


Beware, this is rather a photo heavy post!

I was looking for a Koala stamp and after checking out a few different brands I decided on a set from My Favourite Things called 'Cuddly Koalas'. My Favourite Things are running a 2017 Card Design Superstar challenge at the moment so I decided to have a play with my new stamps and join in with a couple of the categories. For both of my cards I've used the 'Cuddly Koalas' stamp set and the 'Surf & Turf' Die-namics die set. I fussy cut all the images and it took quite some time so the matching dies are a definite requirement next time I go shopping.





Here's my card for the Clean & Simple Genius category





and this is my card for the Innovation Master category which combines a slider card along with a bendy card (neither of which I've made before!)






I really enjoyed making both of these cards and was pleased with how they both turned out and I shall definitely be having a lot more fun with these adorable Koalas.

Thanks for popping by and I hope you have a great weekend.

Super cards Andrea, adorable Koalas, I love your CAS design but the bendy card with the slider is fabulous, I've not tried either of these! Good luck with the challenge.
