CASEing the Catty #175 | Occasions Big Shot

Hello Sunday!!!  I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Today I’m sharing a card I designed using the CASEing the Catty #175 theme – Favourite Occasions Big Shot Project.

Image may contain: text

There’s lots of Big Shot Projects to love in the Occasions catalogue!  I needed a layout to use with my new Animal Outing stamp set which I have been itching to get inky since we got it at OnStage.  You’ll be able to add it to your collection when the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue goes live in June #demoperks

The stamp set contains fun cartoon animal images including a rhino, frog, giraffe and a super cute kangaroo & koala combination.

It’s rare we get Australian animals in stamp sets, so I just love the kangaroo image!!!

I’ve used the layout of the (left) picnic card on page 6 of the Occasions catalogue…

…as the base for my kangaroo creation!

This fun stamp set comes with framelits (can’t wait for those!) and is going to be a huge hit in the new catalogue!!!

Let’s have a look at that cute kanga one more time.  She’s easy to colour using your favourite colouring method.  I’ve used Watercolor Pencils & Aqua Painter for this card.

I know you’re going to be seeing lots more of her!

Just Add Ink #353 Critters

Just Add Ink Design Team

Thanks to the fantastic suggestion by Karren, this week at Just Add Ink, we’re all making or stamping critters.

This has created a bit of discussion on the JAI design team page as we chatted about what defines a critter???

It seems that any living creature or animal-like character fits the bill.

I wonder if my Gruffalo card would pass the critter test? (PS, I am never making that card again!)


My critter thoughts took me to a special birthday card I wanted to make for a very special person!

Carolyn Bennie, who is just as delightful in person as she is over a computer screen – had a birthday this month.  And one of my all-time favourite designs of hers was this cute swinging koala.

Now, it’s hard to compete with that level of amazingness – but I do know that she appreciates and loves a good pun.

As do I!

So, I sent “koalaty’ birthday wishes over to South Australia.

This is my third version of a punch art koala (see the other two here and here).

I decided that this one would be made using the Blossom Builder punch (and the 1/2″ &  1-1/2″ circle punches).

Just Add Ink #353 - Critters: Koala punch art. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

To make your own Blossom Koala:

Ears: 1/2″ circle with flower in the middle

Head: 1-1/2″ circle

Eyes: Owl Builder Punhc

Nose: leaf

Mouth: hand drawn

Body: 1-1/2″ circle

Tummy: large petal

Arms: leaf

Legs: leaf with end snipped off


This might be the best koalaty (quality) one yet!

Thanks for letting me share it with you!

You can find all the design team projects by visiting the Just Add Ink blog!

You’ll also be able to upload your critter inspired projects & join the challenge.

I’m looking forward to seeing lots of cuteness!
