Thankful Fox


Hi everyone!

I am back from a wonderful vacation (a long road trip out west to see family) and super excited to be back in my studio!

Today, I decided to color up this adorable little fox from PhotoPlay Paper. I started by stamping the fox, leaves and acorns in using Copic-friendly ink, and then coloring them in with my Copic markers. Here are the colors I used for the Fox:

Fox Belly and Tail: E30, 0
Fox Body: E18, E08, YR18, Y17, E31
Once all my coloring was completed, I cut all the images using the coordinating dies for the set.

I die cut a panel for the card front with a stitched rectangle die, then cut a circle window out of it with a circle die.

I treated my panel with an anti-static powder to keep the embossing powder from sticking where is shouldn’t, then stamped my sentiment using black pigment ink. I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Lately, I really like using black pigment ink and clear embossing powder for embossing black sentiments (rather than VersaMark and black embossing powder) because I think the sentiment looks a little crisper.

I used foam adhesive to pop the panel up over a piece of cardstock that I had embossed to look like wood, then adhered the panel to my card base.

Lastly, I arranged my colored pieces to fit inside and around the circle window and added a few gems for some sparkle. I hope you like this project and I’m really glad you stopped by my blog today! Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

      Thank you so much, Lori!

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
