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.)

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.

Vintage Leaves Thank You Card

To keep with the “Thanksgiving theme”, I would like to share with you another card that I made using the Vintage Leaves stamp set. I also used Block “D” to make the square in the background.

I first inked my Block with Crushed Curry ink and then ink only the outer edges with Pumpkin Pie ink, using the “Rock and Roll” technique! I stamped my Maple leaf on top with Memento Black ink. To complete my background, I stamped some ink splatters using the “Gorgeous Grunge” stamp with Sahara Sand ink.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’ve been away from my Blog for a bit since I started a new full time job.  I’m really happy about this new turn in my life, but I had to re-adjust to this new life and therefore I’ve neglected my blog in the process!!!

Today, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, I’m very grateful for my family, who is very supportive and who I deeply love. I’m grateful for my customers and followers for reading my blog post and leaving me comments!

Here’s my little Thanksgiving Curvy Box treat and Thank you card!

Automne 2015-005

This is 2 of the projects we made at my Stamping club in September. We used the beautiful Vintage Leaves stamp set and matching Leaflets Framelits. I love creating Fall leaves with beautiful colors, using my ink pads and sponge daubers! Each one is unique! For the Maple leaf, I started with a Daffodil Delight card stock leaf, stamped with Early Espresso and added Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede and Cherry Cobbler. The oak leaf was also a Daffodil Delight card stock, sponged with Old Olive and Soft Suede.

The background is a special technique, made with tissue paper applied on top of a Crumb Cake card stock. Gently wrinkle your tissue paper. Cover your Crumb Cake cardstock with glue stick. Add the tissue paper on top leaving some wrinkles in the process. Trim the tissue paper around the edges. Stamp some ink splatters with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. This is a very simple technique, but it has a unique “handmade” paper look!
