'Hey Foxy'


Sometimes it takes me a while to embrace certain trends.
The fox trend has been one that has taken me a while to get on board with.

I have a friend who is a hobby consultant for a stamp company,
and as soon as I saw their fox stamp set, I was sold and HAD to get it!

Here's the card I made with it.


 ...and a close up shot...

Now I'm wondering why it took me so long to embrace foxes.
They're pretty darn cute, if you ask me!

'Birthday Wishes' Card


Every Monday morning, one of the first blogs I check out is Mojo Monday.  
I'm they type of crafter that needs a starting point before I sit down to make a card,
and the sketches from Mojo Monday do just that.  

The card I'm sharing today was based on THIS SKETCH.




I wish I could get my cards made in time 
to submit them to Mojo Monday's card challenge gallery,
but I'm always a day late and a dollar short ;)

'Oh, Hello' stamp set and put it to good use.

'Zoo Babies' Cards


There's nothing like sitting down to make cards, 
and having them turn out just like you pictured them in your head :)

The cards I'm sharing today were inspired by THIS CARD.  
I loved the simple layout, and knew that I could make lots of cards 
in a short amount of time.



When I was making the elephant card, I realized that I didn't have 
a scalloped circle punch large enough to layer with the 2" circle punch.  
So I made use of what punches I DO have, and came up with this fun little trick.

I punched 2 Flourish Squares like this...


And then glued them together to make a scalloped circle. 


It ended up being the perfect size for what I needed!
Love it when that happens!



Supply List: (all supplies are from Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted):
Paper: Polka Dot Parade, Rich Razzleberry CS, Old Olive CS, Basic Gray CS, Whisper White CS
Stamp Set: Zoo Babies
Ink: Basic Gray, Old Olive
Tools: 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, 2" Circle Punch (non SU!), 
2" Scalloped Circle Punch (non SU!), Flourish Square Punch (non SU!)
Other: White ribbon, White yarn
