Kangaroo & Company for Baby Congratulations


  • Stampin' Up! Kangaroo & Company Stamp Set
  • Coordinating Kangaroo Dies
  • Bonus for Joining Stampin' Up! during May 2021

I needed a congratulation cards for a nephew and niece. My niece is a new mother-to-be.  I think the Kangaroo & Company Bundle was the perfect choice!  I paired it with one of the prints from the Snail Mail Designer Series Papers and it all came together in this cute card.  The Kangaroo & Company Stamp Set and the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper are from the January-June Mini Catalog, which means they are available until 30 June 2021.     

The basecard for this card is Real Red Cardstock.  Then a Basic White layer.  Next, I selected a print from the Snail mail Designer Series Paper Pack.

I used the Layering Circles Dies to create a background for my Kangaroo.  I used the Kangaroo Dies to stamp and die cut a kangaroo and baby from Cinnamon Cider Cardstock.   I stamped two Real Red hearts from the Kangaroo & Company Stamp Set onto the die cut circle

I punched a heart using the Heart Punch Pack and stamped a sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink from the retired Punch Party Host Stamp Set.  I keep certain Stamp Sets after they are retired if I find them to be particularly useful. The retired Punch Party Host Stamp Set is one of those sets. On the inside of the card, I used a sentiment from the Many Messages Stamp Set.  Because this set includes 18 sentiments and hearts and stars, and I only needed one sentiment, I used a Black Stampin' Write Marker to ink up only the one sentiment I needed and stamped it onto my card inside.  I also added a strip of Designer Series Paper to the bottom.

I popped the kangaroos and "Oh Baby" sentiment up on Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals.  I added a Real Red bow, and my card was finished.  My only question is:  What color are kangaroos?  Are they Soft Suede? Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate? Gray Granite I really don't know!  I do know that this really, really cute stamp set is only available until 30 June 2021 from the January-June 2021 Muni Catalog.

I'm so happy with how this card turned out.  I just makes me smile.  I hope my niece and nephew love it as much as I do.   You can combine your orders from both the 2021 Mini Catalog and the 2021-2022 Annual catalog to earn Stampin' Rewards for orders of $150 USD (less shipping and tax).  Plus earn an extra $25 bonus for orders over $250 (less shipping and tax).  Read more below.   Order from my Stampin' Up! shopping site  24 X 7.
