Mixed-Up Koala

I have a fun card today for this week's color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  It uses the stamps and dies from Stampin' Up!'s Menagerie Mix-Up bundle.

The colors:

This fun set lets you create numerous animals by swapping out ears. noses, heads, bodies, tails and even antlers.  You can either create an animal through masking and stamping, or to make it super simple, you can cut out various the body parts and then assemble them as I've done here!

Some of the animals you can create are:

  • mouse
  • lamb
  • deer
  • bear
  • koala
  • beaver
  • pig
  • cow
  • bunny
  • cat

I can't wait to have a bit of free time to stamp and play with the different elements.  The set also comes with extras like the hat seen here, a scarf, balloon, heart, etc. so your critters can hold things or be dressed for the event!  A super fun set for all occasions!

If you love animals (or know someone who does) now is the time to order.  This set is in the Holiday catalog and may not be available after December 31.  The critters holding hearts are PERFECT for Valentine's Day!


Place ANY order with me between now and November 30 and use Hostess code 7N6PTXRA and I will send you a copy of the upcoming January-June Mini Catalog.

If your order is $150 or more DO NOT use the code and YOU will receive the Hostess Benefits!  I will still send you the catalog!

  1. A very sweet card and those stamps are ingenious! I adore his hat.

  2. Super cute card. I am in love with Quite Curvy - that set has broadsided me and I find myself trying to incorporate it into every design.....what other bagillion stamps and dies I have....no idea what anyone is talking about.
