Fox Thank You Notes

If you have not figured it out by now I love FOXES!!! So when I saw these cute foxes with the Foxy Holiday stamp set ~I had to have it.  So here is what I created with it:

Foxy Holiday ~ Dashing through the snow ~ design your own background ~ catscrapbooking.comI loved creating my own background like I did for the rocket valentine card.  What is so cool is each card is slightly different.  Here is another one:Foxy Holiday 2 ~ Dashing Through the snow ~ Design your own background ~ catscrapbooking.comSo to crate these cool backgrounds I used Glacier, Crystal Blue and Sapphire. Using a sponge I apply the ink randomly to white cardstock. Then I mixed up a combination of rubbing alcohol with White Daisy re-inker in one of the spray pens.  I then misted the background creating the molted look.  If you notice in the second card the spray was not very even but still created a unique look.  I then used the white watercolor paint and splattered it over the top.  I also used the watercolor paint to color the tree, moon, sled and adorable fox.

Happy Crafting!

To the Moon Valentine

Have you had a chance to check out the new Seasonal Expressions which was just released January 1st??? There are so many great things in there!!! I love the stamp set To the Moon B1507.  I knew when I saw this it would be great for my son and to design boy theme cards and layouts.  The first thing that come to mind was designing my own background to look like the night sky.  I LOVE the way this turned out and I am now hooked!!

To the Moon ~ Boy Valentine ~ Create your own sponged background ~ CatScrapbooking.comIf you are wondering how I created this background I will explain it now.  I started with a piece of White Daisy cardstock.  I used a punch to cut out a 1 3/4″ circle.  I used the reverse to ink my sun with Canary and Saffron.  I then took the punched circle and using a little bit of adhesive I attached the circle to mask off my sun while I sponged the sky.  I used Glacier, Crystal Blue and Sapphire inks and a sponge and began applying color.  I started with Glacier then added Crystal Blue and lastly the Sapphire.  I then used my spray pen with a combination of alcohol and White Daisy re-inker.  I like to use alcohol instead of water as it dries a bit faster.   I misted the sponged background which gave the mottled look.  I then came back with my watercolors and with a brush which was saturated with water and white paint I tapped it over cardstock creating the bright white flecks which look like stars.

Here is the full list of supplies used:

  • Cardstock ~ Ruby and White Daisy
  • Inks ~ Canary, Saffron, Glacier, Crystal Blue, Sapphire, Ruby and Momento Black
  • Stamp Set ~ To the Moon B1507

Happy Crafting!
