Joyful and Festive Mugs on The Foiled Fox Blog

 


Hello, I'm on the Foiled Fox blog today sharing this card and talking about how I made it. 
Hope you check it out! 

Disclosure: The Foiled Fox sent this stamp set and die to me. I am not an affiliate and receive nothing else for working with it. I highly recommend shopping at The Foiled Fox -- I am a regular paying customer as well as an occasional guest designer! Fast shipping and the owner is a good person! 

MOOD WHEN DONE: Great!

Reverse Confetti: Yuletide Mouse, Grid Style

 




These mice, from Reverse Confetti's Yuletime Mice are pretty darn cute. Rather than try and make a scene, or color them the traditional way, I changed things up a bit. 

1. Swipe come pink, red, and cranberry inks on white cardstock. Stamp images in black. 

2. Die cut the images using a square die. If you don't wait, the black ink may smear. I used Versafine Onyx, and while it didn't smear, it transferred black ink onto my die cut plate. So -- either wait until totally dry or use typing paper as a shim to protect your plate. 

3. Fiddle and arrange until happy and pop up with foam tape.

4. Add white Nuvo drops to brighten it up.

5. Adhere with foam tape to a cranberry card. 

6. Emboss sentiment from Yuletide Mice on black cardstock and adhere. 

MOOD WHEN DONE: Happy!

Flora and Fauna Wreath Cards

As soon as I saw the Oh Christmas Tree stamp and die bundle by Flora and Fauna, I placed an order. I think it was this cute bow that got me. Love this company's products!


For this card, I took a rectangle stencil and placed it over an A2 card and just rubbed an ink cube to create a "door" for the wreath to hang. Added the bow from the set and a sentiment from Santa's List from Ellen Hutson and a few gems. 

I liked how it came out, so I made another.



Very similar, but changing the stencil and colors gives a softer look. Here I used the Salvaged Brick stencil from Honey Bee Stamps. This cute wonky Joy is part of the Oh Christmas Tree set. The other change I made was to trim the A2 card so that it was only 4 inches wide. I like the slightly narrower look.

MOOD WHEN DONE: Loved making these cards, so I'm happy about that! 

Man, what a rough year. No complaints, just yearning for better times for everyone. Grateful to be able to escape into stamping.

Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge

November's Reverse Confetti challenge theme is Holiday and Winter cards -- details below. So I turned to my favorite RC products from the November release: Plaid Lines Small and Plaid Lines Big Cover Plates.


Decided that we can pretty much make a tree out of anything!

1. Cut the Plaid Lines Small plate with a light green cardstock. Ditto with the Plaid Lines Big with dark green cardstock. 

2. If your paper cutter will cut through 2 layers, adhere both plaids together, find the center top point and cut out a triangle. Otherwise, do what I did and cut the layers first and then adhere them together using liquid glue.

3. Make an A2 side fold card and adhere the "tree" with foam tape.

4. Stamp and trim a sentiment from Yuletide Mice (love that font!). Adhere with more foam tape.

5. Add light blue gems.

6. Sit back and agree not to tell non stampers how you made it!
