And Another Fox

And here comes another fox. Can't help it. This time I made a card for three Simon Says Stamp Challenges! First, the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes), then the second Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge (Tic-Tac-Toe) and finally, the Work It Wednesday Challenge (color combination). This is the image for the Flickr Challenge:


I chose top left corner to bottom left corner: die cut, twine, polka dots. And here comes the Work It Wednesday color recipe:

The result is this:


The fox and leaves are from Avery Elle, I colored them with Copics. The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp exclusive set "Tag Sayings" and the balloon die another Simon Says Stamp exclusive called "Balloons Craft Dies". I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by today!

My Last Paper Smooches Cards

It's been such fun and honor to have been Paper Smooches' Guest Designer for September. I wish it could last longer, but alas, it's coming to an end. So here are my last Paper Smooches cards that were posted on the Paper Smooches blog.



Both cards were made with the super cute Holly Jolly set. Here on the first one,  I stamped a border using the outlined holly leaves and the bold berries. The leaves are colored with Distress Inks and water and onto the berries I added Glossy Accents in the end. You can see it here in the detail shot:


The second card uses non-traditional colors:


I love the bows that come in the set and all the elements are so fun to play with! I stamped the baubles first, then using a ruler and a black marker, I drew the strings. Now I stamped the bows and pearls. And there had to be some shine, so I adhered matching sequins in the end! I hope you liked my projects. I enjoyed creating them very much! Thanks for visiting!

Autumn

Autumn has arrived here. We woke up to frost on the fields this morning and had to scrape off the ice from the car windows. Brr. So not ready for the cold season! But I still like creating fall-inspired projects and wanted to play with the AEI♥U Challenge (sketch), combining it with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Tag It!).




Here is the sketch:

And here comes my card:


Love this cute fox from the Red & Goldie set. All stamps I used are from this adorable set. I colored the images with Copics. The splatters on the background were made with Faber Castell Gelatos and Distress Inks mixed with water. Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks for visiting!
