Stampin’ Up! Is a master of coordination and that is true of the three coordinating patterns from Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper used on today’s card. The koala was ready to be cropped with a 2-3/8″ Circle Punch and become the focal point. The black and white dots are the background “stage.” A wee bit of the black pattern peeks out top and bottom from behind the “stage.”
WHAT I LOVE ! There’s something so striking about a white embossed sentiment on black card stock. Perfect for a clean and simple style.

Cathy S.- “I joined so I could get a discount on my craft supplies. I’ve been a demonstrator for 11 years because I love paper crafting and get so much motivation, encouragement, support and inspiration from the Pals.“
Veronica M. –“The discount is wonderful. But my love of stamping and sharing with others has truly blessed me with new friends!“
Debbie T. – “Signing up under Mary (along with becoming a part of the Pals community) was a game changer for me. In spite of my being just a hobby demo, I get so much more out of paper crafting from all of the sharing and inspiration, but also from the friendships.“
Windy E. –“Joined in 2011. I love my customers/friends who come to class and the Pals community so I am still here!“
Michelle Q. – “I’ve stayed on for the friends and community.“
Elisha S. – “I fell in love with Mary’s style and decided to join for the discount. Soon after some church friends asked me to join them for card classes at HL. I soon realized I could do a better job (as a retired middle school teacher) for them right at home. They are all still with me 11 years later!“
Renee C. – “I joined because I have always loved to make homemade cards and loved the products and of course the discount was an added bonus. I have remained because I love the Pals! The inspiration and encouragement are priceless.”
