A Koala Christmas!

A Koala Christmas!

 
Happy Friday! Cathy here with one last card to share for the year. I had so much fun with this one and used one of my very favorite Gerda Steiner stamps. This little koala didn’t want to miss out on the Christmas festivities!
 
 

I’ve combined stamps from 3 different Gerda Steiner sets on this and used a no-line coloring technique with Copics. The Santa hat is from the Carol Puppies stamp set and was the perfect size and shape for the koala. Both the Carol Puppies and Carol Kittens sets have quite a few sizes and shapes of Santa hats that would fit nearly any of the Gerda Steiner animal stamps.
 
 

I’ve added a string of lights to the eucalyptus tree using the tiny lightbulb from the Balancing Mouse stamp set and drew the string with a colored pencil.

My very favorite adorable koala is from the You’re Koalafied stamp set.


I colored and fussy cut the ornament from the Balancing Mouse set and added it to a few die-cut leaves that almost looked like eucalyptus. The sentiments are also from the Balancing Mouse set.


I hope you enjoyed my card today and it inspires you to mix and match your stamps.

Happy Holidays and I’ll be back in the New Year!

See you soon!


Cathy
