Facebook Live 1.20.21 Kangaroo & Company Cards

I love the Kangaroo & Company bundle from the Jan-June Mini Catalog.  I focused on this bundle for my Facebook Live this past Wednesday.  Here are the cards we made.

Kangaroo & Company Card Group by Jo Anne Hewins

I love that there are choices of hearts, flowers, a baby joey, or presents that can go in the kangaroo pouch.  You can even put them on a tab to pull out and replace with another.  It reminds me of paper dolls.

Kangaroo & Company Valentine Note Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The first easy card was made using one of the Basic White Note Cards & Envelopes.  I simply stamped the envelope stamp randomly over the card front in Memento Black.  Color in the hearts with Stampin' Write Markers.  I used the Real Red from the Regals and the Blushing Bride from the Subtles.   I used the markers because they do not bleed through to the other side like Blends do.  I did not want to see it from the inside.

Wind some of the Blushing Bride twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo around the card and tape where it will be covered by the heart.  Make a bow to add later with a rolled glue dot.

Stamp the saying from the Punch Party stamp set in Real Red on Blushing Bride card stock.  Punch with the heart from the Heart Punch Pack.  Punch the scallop heart from Real Red card stock.  Adhere the two and add to the card center with dimensionals.  

Add the bow.

Kangaroo & Company Valentine by Jo Anne Hewins

This card uses the patterned paper from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper.  

The base is Real Red 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold at 4 1/4.  The Blushing Bride layer is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  I trimmed just a tiny bit from the side.  The 3 patterned of  Snail Mail paper are 1 5/8 x 3 3/4.  I started gluing with the hearts paper and then added each one butting them up against each other.  Add this layer to the card front.

The heart is from Blushing Bride card stock and is cut from the Stitched Be Mine dies.  Use the scalloped large die and the heart both to cut this out.  The heart alone only makes the stitching.  The scallop piece can be added if you wish.  Use the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder to add some texture to the heart.  Glue to the center of the card.

Stamp the large kangaroo and the joey in Memento.  Color with the Crumb Cake combo, the Ivory blend, and the Dark Petal Pink blend.  Cut out with the Kangaroo dies.  Add with dimensionals.   Stamp the hearts with Memento and color with the Real Red Combo blends.  cut out with the dies and add with dimensionals.

The saying is from the meant to Be stamp set.  Cut out with the rectangle in the Kangaroo dies.  Add with dimensionals.

Cut small hearts using the Stitched Be Mine dies and add them to the card front.

Kangaroo & Company Family by Jo Anne Hewins

This card starts with a basic size base of Rococo Rose.  The Blushing Bride layer is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  The designer paper from the Paper Blooms Sale-a-Bration Designer Series Paper is 3 3/4 x 5.

Before adhering the layers, cut the largest oval from the Layering Ovals dies from the Blushing Bride layer.  Use the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder with the oval.  Add the oval to the center of the card.  

Run a length of the Blushing Bride twine around the card and tie in a bow.

Stamp the big kangaroo, the child kangaroo, and the baby.  Color with the Smoky Slate combo blends and the Dark Petal Pink blend.  Cut with the dies.  For this card the baby is added to the top of the tab.  Watch how you add the big kangaroo to the card so that you can add the baby and also take it out.  Add the child.

The saying is from the Kangaroo & Company bundle.  Add with dimensionals.  Use the Rococo Rose pad.

For this card we also stamped the hearts, the presents, and the flowers so that they can be interactive on the card.

I think my granddaughter Sagan will be playing with this card.
