Last week I had asked on my Facebook page, Blue Line Stamping, to name a few stamp sets that you would like to see used.   I used one on Monday.  You can see that card HERE.  And today I am sharing the second one.  It is Kangaroo & Company.

 

Stampin' Up!, kangaroo and company, True Love, Blending Brushes, Jackie Beers

 

I chose to make the Kangaroo as a Valentine Card.  But since it doesn’t say that on the front, it could be used for any expression of love.  The little envelope is part of the stamp set and I think it is simply adorable, so I wanted to include it.  It’s sort of hanging in the air, so I see it as love is being sent.  Yes, I know I have a crazy imagination!!! LOL!

The background for the card is from the True Love Designer Series Paper.  I used the new Blending Brushes with Flirty Flamingo and  Poppy Parade Inks to blend the colors onto the paper.  I love how the dots still show through so well.

To ground everything, I added one of the Vellum Doilies.  These little squares are so versatile and are perfect for this use.  I also added the White Baker’s Twine from the Snail Mail Combo Trim Pack.

The kangaroo is adorable alone or with one of the included inserts for the belly slot.  I went with the hearts for the “Love” theme.  They are colored using Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend Combo.  I also utilized the little “stick” for lack of a better word.  It is what the inserts can be attached to so they pull out of the belly slit.  Here is a closer look at that.

 

Isn’t that adorable?  The smaller sayings in the stamp set will all work on this little piece.  It is long enough to easily hold the attached hearts in place.  You do need to pay attention when adding your dimensionals so they do not interfere with it.

Thank you for stopping in today!  I really do appreciate it.  If you have any stamps you would like to see me create a card for, hop over to my Facebook Blue Line Stamping page and leave me a note.  There are not very many that I do not have 🙂
