HSS #241

How about a simple sketch for this Tuesday morning?  It's a sketch challenge that comes to you from Hand Stamped Sentiments and is so totally versatile.  You can whip up something for this challenge that is fancy, or like my card create a little something which is made up of simple layers and a badge.
The stamped Whisper White image on Early Espresso card stock is from the Badges and Banners set and cut out perfectly with the Best Badge Punch.  Both products are brand spankin' new from the Annual Catalog and are way awesome.  Talk about cute and quick--you've gotta love that!

A couple more new things used for this card include the Serene Scenery DSP, the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes, 1/4" Natural Gold Ribbon Trim, and the Layering Circles Framelits.

Foxy Monday Montage #72

Guess what?  I have another Foxy Friends card to share.  And ... I am sharing it for our Monday Montage Blog Hop!

The Foxy Friends stamp set and Fox Builder punch are SO NOT ME but ... I can't seem to clear them from my stamp table.  Sometimes you just have to order a stamp set that veers from your typical style and go for it.  Well, I have done just that.  I can't get over how awesome the stamps from Foxy Friends set and how well they combine with the Oh Happy Day Card Kit.

Some of the best challenges are the ones where you get to find a muse and then recreate their card.  It's a chance to make your version of their card with the stamps and supplies you have on hand.  At TGIF you will see all the fun cards designed by the team members and then you too can join along in the fun.
My muse for this challenge was Cathy Caines.  I was totally drawn to her layout, her color palette, and her theme.  I didn't have anything like what she had used on her card so I grabbed what green pattern paper I could find.  There is a super yummy piece of Mint Macaron paper in the Affectionately Yours DSP pack that was my starting point.   To finish mimicing Cathy's layout I used the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape.  The stamp sets I worked with were the Foxy Friends and Oh Happy Day Card Kit.  For easy cutting I grabbed the Fox Builder Punch and the Perfect Pines Framelits.

Gift of Love

A quick post for today to share this soft and sweet Gift of Love card.  The side stripes is a piece of Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape and the floral image is stamped on a scrap of Watercolor Paper.  To step the card up I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the "thank you" greeting, and the flower petals.  All stamps are from the Gift of Love Hostess Set.  This card is a beauty in person!

Something New Something Navy Blue

For our latest color challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments I grabbed something new, Fox and Friends, and something navy blue.  
So as I was fumbling through my first time using the Fox and Friends stamp set I realized I don't know my animals.  Eek how did I get out of college?  I am not smarter than a 5th grader?  Definitely not when it comes to mammals.  I mean come on I made a pink fox without any front legs!  Looks normal to me.
