Welcome to the new Sunday RemARKable Blog Tour! I hope you’ll enjoy our new day – third Sunday of the month, still 2pm HST (8pm EST – we won’t go into the business about when and how that changes. I just use world clocks on my phone to keep track!)
This month I’m sharing a project I did for a dear friend who is expecting a baby boy in August. I started by making her a card:
I used a lot of different products, but the foundation is the Foxy Friends stamp set, the Fox Builder punch, and the A Little Foxy DSP stack. You could spend DAYS (ask me how I know) playing with all of the variations of the stamps and punch. And I kept it to a simple color palette – if I had started experimenting there I would still be stamping!!
I cut an oval in the DSP and added a bit of background. The Duet Builder punch gave me a frame for my sentiment, and the little toadstools from the Foxy Friends set were the perfect accent.
- Stamps: Foxy Friends, Thoughtful Banners, retired sentiment
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray
- Accessories: Big Shot, Ovals Framelits, Fox Builder Punch, Duet Banner punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
The next step was to create some Thank You notes for the new Mama. I used our Note Card sets – the cards are cut and scored and come with envelopes – and created three designs. The grayscale images in the DSP stack are perfect when you’re working with this much color!
I had a lot of fun playing with the tilted heads on these little guys. Some of these poor critters may need a chiropractor.
It’s a tough call, but I think the raccoon might be my favorite. We don’t have any of these critters on Maui, but I have lots of raccoon memories from my mainland days. Some are fond, and some are not so fond (trying to defeat a very determined raccoon intent on dumping our trash at 1am).
I can’t imagine this sweet face digging in my trash!
The third and final member of the the Thank You Trio is this little stinker. Each card uses an identical layout, but has slight color and DSP variations.
The punch has plenty of little shapes and pieces – enough to keep a creative mind at work for a long time.
Take a visit along the RemARKable tour – Heather Mathieson is next and she always has great ideas! Thanks for stopping by today.
