Animal Outing – Welcome Little One

Hello and welcome back.  I am pleased to let you know that I have been invited to be a guest designer with the CAS Colours & Sketches team for the month of May.

The CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge (#468) this week is Color:

Additional Inspiration:

Here is the result:

ANIMAL OUTING – CC&S468 – CCCB284 – CC168 – LIM463 – CCCC16


  • Card Base: (11” x 4¼” scored at 5½”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
  • One Layer Image:
    • Step 1: An off-center Open Circle Mask was created with a (4¼” x 5½”) piece of Copy Paper and the (2⅝”) circle die from the Layering Circles Dies set.
    • Step 2: The Mask was secured with low-tack repositionable Tape over the card front.
    • Step 3: The Kangaroo and Joey image from the retired Animal Outing stamp set was inked with Soft Suede ink and stamped within the circle.
    • Step 4: The Kangaroo and Joey image was stamped again on to a Post-It-Note and fussy cut with Paper Snips.
    • Step 5: The Post-It-Note Mask was positioned over the original stamped image.
    • Step 6: With a Blending Brush, Pale Papaya ink was added to the circle and then Calypso Coral ink was added to the outer edges of the circle.
    • Step 7: The two Masks were removed from the card front.
    • Step 8: The Kangaroo and Joey image was colored with Stampin’ Blends.  Mama – Light Soft Suede (Body), Light Crumb Cake (Pouch), and Light Pale Papaya (Belly).  Joey – Light Crumb Cake.
    • Step 9: The sentiment(s), Welcome and Little One, from the same stamp set were stamped with Soft Suede ink off-center top left and bottom right.
    • Step 10: To soften the sentiments, a little Crumb Cake color was added with the Light Stampin’ Blend.

…and that is it! A sweet little Baby card in warm Savannah colors.

  1. Your sweet mama and baby are adorable Jolanda and your masking and inking is a great way of creating the illusion of layers on your CAS card. So thrilled to have you guesting with us over at CAS Colours & Sketches this month!


  2. I love those little guys, so so cute! I feel like I am watching a family moment in the Australian Outback. Great idea for the color challenge. Thanks so much for joining us as our guest designer this month.


  3. It’s Valérie again: as I said I love your cute kangaroo! Thank you for sharing your beautiful creation at Less is More! Stay safe and keep crafting! xx
