Lots of Love - DSC#195 Challenge Card

Hi Stampers,
Here is my take on this weeks DOstamper Thursday DSC#195 Sketch Pad Challenge!  I LOVED this challenge!  I was dying to use those Lady Bugs from the Love You Lots Hostess Stamp Set, and this layout worked perfectly to be able to do that. The large polka dots on the red layer was done with the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder it really gives the card the dimension that the background layer needed.



The Lady Bugs were placed onto the squares cut from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and given dimension with the Stampin Dimensionals. The cute black and white DSP was from the Pop Of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper.  For my banner,  I stamped  Happy Birthday using the Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set and then cut out using the Bunch Of Banners Framelits Dies.



As you know, I always make my own Custom Envelopes and Custom Envelope Liners to match all of my cards using the Envelope Punch Board.  Adding the stripes for the liner just made the card.   The finishing touch was to add the little bow with the retired Whisper White 1/4" Cotton Ribbon.

Always love to hear you comments on the card!

Foxy Friends DSC#194 Challenge Card

Hi Stampers,
Are you ready for a glimpse of my version of a punch art card for this week's DOstamper Thursday DSC#194 Product Spotlight Challenge?  I had seen a few versions of this card on Pinterest and fell in love with it, The original card was designed by Marelle Taylor but I also got inspiration from another version of the card made by Julie Kettlewell.  I took ideas from both and created my version of it. I had a great time working with the Foxy Friends Photopolymer Bundle for this card, but I have to admit that this card took me hours and hours of changing colors and changing circle punches and shapes to get what I was looking for, but eventually I got there..



Those cute little feet were done with the Builder Owl Punch. The banners were done with the new Duet Banner Punch and it is a MUST HAVE punch!  After I punched out the head piece using the fox punch from the Foxy Friends Photopolymer Bundle , I just turned it upside down to get the rounded chin look.. His ears were made with the 3/4" and 1/2" circle punches. For the tail I just punched it and trimmed it to be thinner.


As you know, I always make my own Custom Envelopes and Custom Envelope Liners to match all of my cards using the Envelope Punch Board.  The Custom Envelope Liner was made with the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack.   The finishing touch was to add the little bow with the Blushing Bride 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon.
