Hello Foxy

This week I took the wreath stamped in Archival Black and colored with the soft touch of watercolor pencils.

The wreath is stamped on a piece of White Daisy and cut out and attached to the card front.

The HI! sentiment is stamped in the middle.

I added the black dots, however I think it looks good without them too.

Remember you can purchase the Stamp of the Month for only $5 with a qualifying $50 order.

Design Space Friday Window Pane Card

Design Space Friday is all about slicing a window pane card base.

The two templates created today may be used to create a window pane that may be placed atop a card base (the gray piece).

And a template for a window pane card front. A card front for this tutorial would be a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 rectangle with a window pane cut and this piece may be placed atop a card base (8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2).

Enjoy the video

June is a Foxy Month

Here is the third fox image from the Close To My Heart Hello Foxy stamp of the month.

I stamped the stemmed flower and fox on a smaller piece of White Daisy in Archival Black. Using the Light Orange and Golden Yellow ShinHan markers for the fox, the leaf green and Cerulean Blue Light ShinHan markers for the floral pieces.

Creating a larger outside mat and adding doodling to keep this card sweet and simple.

Hello Foxy Revisited

Another Hello Foxy stamp of the month card. I fell in love with these little cuties.

First I stamped the foxes. Next I created a mask using a post it note and covered the stamped images so I could water color a sky and grass scene.

I removed the mask and using the Light Orange and Golden Yellow ShinHan markers I colored my little foxes.

The last was to stamp the HI! sentiment.

I kept this card clean and simple.

Design Space Friday Welding Words To Shapes

Another Design Space Friday on Saturday. Have you ever got your days mixed up? Well, that was me.

I saw this neat Mickey with the word Love welded and thought, I can do that. So here are a couple of versions I came up with.


I love playing with shapes and words so look for more in the future.

Hello Foxy (S1706) Stamp of the Month

Hello Foxy is a beautifully versatile stamp set. With cute little fox images along with the many floral options, perfect stamp set for any occasion.

Today's card is a spin on Spotlight stamping. Spotlight stamping takes a black and white image and pops up certain areas with color.

I stamped the wreath in Archival Black, a permanent ink, for a deep dark black image.

The smaller floral swag image is stamped in Archival Black and colored using the ShinHan alcohol marker.

It is finished off with a Thankful for you sentiment.

This would be a great Christmas card just by changing the sentiment.
