Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Kind Koala


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

The colour of Tip Top Taupe gave me the idea to pull out the cute Kind Koala stamp set. I used a Blender Pen to add some colour to the koala's ears.

Before you say anything...yes, I know that koalas are grey and not brown! I've seen them in the wild here in Australia - they are pretty big and they also don't hold flowers. ;)

Here are our colours...

  1. Haha. I never realized Koala's are only gray. Gray or brown yours is darling with just a touch of brown on the ears!

  2. Too funny, I didn't know either! Ha! Thanks for the enlightenment Alison and for sharing your cutie Koala! Just seems like he's reaching out to give a hug! :)

  3. This is darling and perfect for the challenge colors.

  4. Very cute! I like the way you hightlighted the Tip Top Taupe, where most of us made it a secondary color this week! Great card Alison!

  5. Just darling! Love the clean and simple design. Thanks for setting us straight on the koalas! ;)

  6. Well, koalas may only be grey, but I think this one looks great in taupe! I love his blended ears and the way you used the other colours sparingly but with great impact. A super card Alison!

  7. It's sort of a grey-taupe...so looks great on your koala! Love all the white space on here. Great job with the color challenge this week!

  8. This little guy would look good in any color, especially on a whimsical stamp holding a flower! : ) Like Jenny I like that the taupe was the featured color and the other were the accents on your darling card!
