Foxy Friends Christmas card

I told you I really fell in love with the Fox Builder punch and Foxy Friends stamp set. Here’s one other card that I did with this amazing bundle! I think this little racoon is so cute!!! What I like about this stamp set is that it includes so many elements: the trees, the tree stump, all the different faces for the animals, and even cute mushrooms!!! I used the dazzling diamonds to add some sparkling touches on the trees and on the snow. (I know it’s not so obvious on the picture.)

Christmas in July

I had made this card for the “Christmas in July” theme but I didn’t get around to post it before! So since today’s the last day of July, I thought I’m better to post it today!!!

I used the same background as for my Iris Folding Butterfly (check previous post), which was made with the new Brick Wall embossing folder.  I used the beautiful wreath from “Wondrous Wreath” Bundle (it comes with matching Framelits!) For the wreath, I used Wild Wasabi and Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler ink pads. I also added some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to add a touch of sparkle!

Make and Take from the Abbotsford Stampin’up Conference

I had the pleasure to be chosen by Stampin’up Canada to be the designer of the make and takes for the Abbotsford Stampin’up Conference, that took place this week-end.  For the Friday night, I was given the “Christmas Bauble” stamp set to use and I was asked to use the Blendabilities markers. Well, that was great because that stamp image  is perfect to color with the Blendabilities!!!

For the Friday Make and Takes, demonstrators made a Shaker Card, a gift Card holder, a mini card and a Gift box.

Make and Take Friday2

Here’s the Shaker Card, which features the Christmas Bauble stamp. The bauble was colored with Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Crumb Cake blendabilities markers. I used the new Confetti Stars punch to cut the tiny little stars that I put in the center of the ornament to make the shaker frame. The background is embossed with the Lucky Stars embossing folder.

Here’s a close-up of the shaker frame before assembling it behind the Bauble.
