Good morning!

 

Here is the other card I made yesterday using Foxy Friends. I really like how this one came out!

 

I used a couple papers from the Wood Textures DSP pack and embossed a piece of Crumb Cake with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

 

 

The images were stamped and then cut out with my Scan N Cut. Instead of adding a sentiment, I decided to add some linen thread.

 

Have a great day!

I’m back after almost a 3 week hiatus. My lingering cough from the bronchitis is *almost* gone, but allergies have still kicked my butt on an ongoing basis. This spring/summer has been brutal for me.

 

Anyways, back to 30 in 30….no way am I going to catch up at this point! I used my last early release Friday for crafting. First time I haven’t had things to do after work all summer.

 

Since I was feeling rusty, I decided to pick something from one of my many lists, on today’s Stampin’ Up! list was Foxy Friends. This set hadn’t been inked up before today so I made 2 cards! I have plans for a couple more but stopped for dinner and now it’s baseball time!

 

I chose the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments to showcase my little fox friend.

 

The color combination is also from my list: Melon Mambo, Cajun Craze and Sahara Sand. I never would have paired the Melon Mambo and Cajun Craze without my list. I really like it! The fox and tree stump were cut out with my Scan N Cut. I am trying to make better use of it since it mostly collects dust!

 

Here is the sketch~

 

Have a great night!

Hi!

 

I was up super early this morning and made this Christmas card, then I got busy with Sunday chores and came close to forgetting to blog it!

 

I was inspired by the color palette at Color Throwdown in making this card. I really like how it turned out!

 

 

When looking for paper with green in it, I came across this striped design in the Stampin Up Delightful Daisy DSP. Then I decided to use this fun SU set I bought last year and never inked up. The NOEL is from the coordinating die set, I thought it made a good mantel for my stockings.

 

Here is the color palette used ~

 

Have a great night!

Last Christmas in July card

Well this month didn’t pan out quite like I hoped. I had a great first week of the month with my staycation and then I spent 3 weeks battling allergies and bronchitis. Still dealing with allergies a bit, hoping some new medicine clears things up this time!

 

I’ve mentioned before that one of my card groups does a brand swap each month and July’s brand is Impression Obsession. I made a Christmas card using an old set called Winter Cardinals. I’m entering in the current Christmas in July challenge on the Impression Obsession blog.

 

 

I did a little masking with the birdhouse and bird. Then I decided to add a second bird on top of the branch. All the images were colored with copics. I couldn’t fit a sentiment on the front, so I aded it on the inside. It is Impression Obsession die 439-J Merry Christmas.

 

 

Have a great day!
