Ozzie Koala Bon Voyage Card

Today I have created a bon voyage card for my son as he heads off to Oxford University in the UK to study for an MBA. I procured the cute Reverse Confetti Bear Hugs stamp set a while ago and I thought that I would make a Koala card to remind him of Oz. I have worked with the Reverse Confetti July sketch challenge.

The cute koala’s just had to be surrounded by some gum leaves-after all they do munch their way through about 500 grams of leaves per day. I created a green and gold Australian colours stencil branches background which I then coated in glitter paste to reflect the bling of the Australian sun.


Supplies used:
Stamps: Reverse Confetti Bear Hugs, Reverse Confetti Paper Crane
Dies; MFT Wonky Stitched rectangles
Inks: Altenew evergreen and warm sunshine, Memento black, Versafine black, Versamark
Other: Joggles stencil branches, white embossing powder, watercolour paper, Bo Bunny Glitter paste Sugar, Zig real brush markers, vellum

Thank you so much for stopping by.



Whilst my DH was watching the Australian F1 Grand Prix today I decided to have a play with my new WPlus9 Feathers and Florals Stamp and Die set and create a CAS card.


Using a Zig brush marker I began by creating a blue smooshed watercolour splatter in the centre of the card. I stamped the sentiment several times using my Misti. The floral images were stamped twice, die cut then assembled in 3 layers with foam tape.

Materials used:
Stamps: WPlus9 Feathers & Florals, Reverse Confetti Paper Crane
Dies: WPlus9 Reathers & Florals
Inks: Altenew Mango Smoothie, Peach perfect, Lavender Fields, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades. Memento Black
Other: Zig brush marker cornflower blue, Pretty Pink Posh 4mm clear droplets, white enamel dots, watercolour paper

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a great day.

I am entering this card in the HLS March Watercolour and HLS CAS March Diecut Challenge.
