Paisley and Posies, Fox Style

Paisley and Posies, Fox Style

Ever since the hostess set Cozy Critters came out, which features a fancy version of the foxes from the Foxy Friends stamp set, I’ve had this crazy idea in my head. “What if there was an even fancier version of the fox?” I set out today to create that fanciest of fancy foxes using the Paisley and Posies stamp set.

Fruit Stand with Glimmer

Fruit and Glimmer

With a challenge calling for bling and Halloween just a few days away, I have been dying to use Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper. I thought it would be fun to pair it up with Blushing Bride glitter ribbon. Double glimmer, double the fun!

Falling Flowers on Fancy Frost

Falling Flowers Stamps on Fancy Frost Designer Series Paper

I had no idea what I was going to make when I started this card. Sometimes creating without a plan can be exhilarating and freeing. I knew I wanted to create something with Falling Flowers, but I didn’t know what, so I made pieces: lots and lots of pieces. I stamped and die cut ten different colors of flowers and leaves, and only then started to think about what I was going to do with them all.

Silver Lining

Hello and happy weekend everyone! I’m off on a Live Action Role Play adventure on Saturday (that’s like a Renaissance Festival combined with Dungeons and Dragons) but before I go I wanted to share this card with you!

This card was inspired by two different challenges. The first is CASology Challenge #210!

Caseology Week 209 - Watercolor

The second is Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #60!


I like this “L” shaped layout a lot. It makes for nice, easy, “Clean and Simple” style cards.

I used my Swirly Scribbles thinlit dies from Stampin’ Up! to cut both the swirl and the flower. The flower is a light purple paper somewhere between Sweet Sugarplum from Stampin’ Up! and the Passion Flower recommended by the challenge. I added a little Rich Razzleberry shadow to the edges with sponging.

The grey polka dot paper is A Little Foxy designer series paper from Stampin’ Up! There are so many cute designs in that paper stack! I love the gray ones especially, because they are so versatile!

With a sentiment like this one, you have to have a little sparkle on your card! I added a rhinestone to the flower and used a strip of polka dot silver washi tape. I found this washi tape at Michaels and have been wanting to use it; finally I had the perfect excuse!

Now I’m off to pack my bag: robe, magic wand, spell book… check, check, and check!

Thanks for visiting and happy stamping!
