Foxy Friends Baby Card

I’ve fallen in love with the new Fox Builder punch and Foxy Friends stamp set! The possibilities with this stamp set and punch are infinite!!! Today’s card is a cute baby card. I used the Fox Builder punch to do the bear; simply rounding up the ears to make it look like a bear.

I also used the banner and confetti stamps from “Celebrate Today” stamp set and the little bow that coordinates with it, Balloon Framelits. The greeting is from Better Together stamp set.

Festival of Trees Card

The Tree punch that matched the Festival of Trees stamp set is really one of my favorite tools in the Holiday catalogue. You can make really nice Christmas cards in no time at all! For this card, I used the “Top Note” die in the background, embossed with the Lucky Stars embossing folder. I used the “Trim the Tree” Designer series paper stack to make the trees and a little Gold glimmer star really adds a sparkly touch!

Bearing Gifts of Christmas Cheer!

I just got this stamp set at the Stampin’up Conference this week-end, and I was excited to use it for the first time! If you like coloring (like I do!), this is a great stamp to have! This stamp called “Bearing Gifts” is a single stamp and only cost $12.95! I used a combination of the regular Stampin’ Markers and the Blendabilities to color my card. I also used the Blender pen with some Soft Sky ink to add a little shadow on the bear. (Can you see it?) The background is embossed with the new Lucky Stars embossing folder.
