We are coming to the end of June which means saying goodbye to some products we have enjoyed from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue. So this month’s team blog hop is showcasing “out with the old” products that are about to retire on 30 June. I have enjoyed this catalogue, some products are sticking around in the new Annual 2021 – 2022 Catalogue but some products we have to say goodbye to. One of my favourites is retiring, the Kangaroo and Company Bundle. I think what instantly attracted me to the this bundle, is that it is Australian! I love that Stampin’ Up! being a US company includes us Australians in their product planning from time to time for their friends living down under. I think that’s pretty cool!
We recently used this bundle in my May card classes (yes I know I am way behind in my blogging!) I had previously made a valentines day/love card and a birthday card with this bundle (to view those cards click here) but this time I wanted to create a baby card.
I used my favourite neutral colour for the card base, Sahara Sand teamed up with some in colour DSP in Pale Papaya. Usually I would stamp on Basic White card stock and colour in the stamped images with blends but I really wanted to show in my class that you don’t need a lot of products to make a pretty card! So I stamped memento black ink directly onto Crumb cake cardstock for my Mumma Roo and onto Sahara Sand for my Baby Roo. I coloured their ears and my Mumma Roo’s cheek with Dark Flirty Flamingo blend and a Crumbcake blend for their noses but this step wasn’t necessary. I do like how it turned out though!
I used the hearts stamp from the set stamped in Flirty Flamingo and coloured with a coordinating blend. These were then layered onto a die from the Scalloped Contours set which I have not stopped playing with since I bought it! I love this set of dies. So useful to have in your craft collection.
Everyone loves an interactive card of some sort, I have included the little tab with a love heart on the little Joey. How cute is it that this die cuts the pouch for the Joey to sit in! So cute, right?
I used the Banners Pick a Punch for the banner on the sentiment with some white twine for a sweet bow. I used the love heart die from the bundle to die cut 3 cute hearts in Sahara sand and a couple in Pale Papaya too.
If you are wanting to grab any last minute retiring products (some at sale prices!) you can head over to my website and get yourself some bargains before they are gone! While you are there, make sure you check out some of the amazing new annual catalogue products too! I have to say this Annual Catalogue is my favourite (shhh don’t tell anyone I always say that about every catalogue!)
