Hey Foxy!

I have had this stamp set for ages and was determined to finally create something with it.  I love foxes and though it was cute sitting in the package it would be so much cuter coloured!

So a cute little shaker card became the plan! Here are the steps and supply list at the end.

  1. Colour The fox using Illustrator Markers and set aside
  2. Cut out a 3.25″ square of white cardstock, ink up the Freestyle Stripes background stamp with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink and stamp.
  3. Cut a 2″ circle from the center of the striped card where you will place your shaker pouch.
  4. Cut a slightly larger piece of black pearl cardstock, with a larger circle cut from the center and affix the striped card topper to this.
  5. On the backside of the black card, affix a square of clear acetate.
  6. Fill the shaker pouch with sequins and glue to the back of the card to cover the circle opening.
  7. Apply some foam tape along the edges of the back of the black card and glue onto a 4″ card blank.
  8. Affix the fox to the bottom right of the card front.
  9. Stamp the Banner, and Sentiments of choice inside the banner and add glue around the edges using a medium Nuvo Glue Pen, let dry tacky for about a minute and then apply gold gilding flakes, burnishing off the excess, cut out the banner.
  10. Apply to the top of the card over the shaker window using Foam tape or foam squares.
  11. Finally, embellish with some sequins in various places on the card front.

Here is a list of the supplies used:

Bunnies aren’t just for Easter!

So, I’m totally not a plan ahead card maker…I know what stamp I want to use and it just goes from there.  So I knew I wanted to use the Bunny Friends Stamp by Penny Black, but that is all I knew, but, I love how this one turned out!

  1. First I Stamped the Image using Catherine Pooler Midnight Black Ink, and then coloured using Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers.
  2. I trimmed the card down to make even edge widths on the side and a decent amount left blank at the top.
  3. Who has the We R Memory Keepers Laser Square?! It is totally one of my favorite tools as my eyes never seem to see a straight line! So, I took the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Big Birthday die, lined it up, stuck it down with a little washi tape and ran it through my Gemini Junior.
  4. Once this is done, I cut a piece of acetate to size and adhered to the back of the cut out letters using my Nuvo Medium Glue Pen (let it sit for a few seconds to become nice and tacky before you stick down the acetate.
  5. Make a border around the back side of the letters with foam tape, and fill the enclosed are with sequins, cover over with a second piece of acetate (or white card).
  6. Using tape runner at the top and a few pieces of foam tape at the bottom stick the card front down onto a slightly larger piece of white cardstock, voila…Happy Birthday Bunnies!!

Hope you have enjoyed! Supply List Below:
