Lots of Hugs

Lots of Hugs_2

 

Hello! I am back today to share a sweet little fox card using a digital stamp from ChiChi Memories.

I started off by printing the fox into some white cardstock and coloring it in with Copic markers (R02, YR04, YR07, E00, E21, E35, R20). I then fussy cut the fox out, and added some white details and Glossy Accents to the image as well.

I die cut a circle out of a white cardstock panel, and then embossed the panel with a chevron stencil. On another piece of cardstock, I sponged the background that will be layered behind the die cut panel. Using Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint, I created an ombre of color and then applied texture paste (mixed with some Squeeze Lemonade ink), over the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Spaced Hearts stencil.

Once the paste was dry, I layered the white panel overtop using foam tape, and then attached both pieces directly to my A2 card base.

I stamped my sentiment from the Hero Arts  XO stamp set onto some black cardstock and embossed it with Ranger Super Fine white embossing powder. I then layered this onto some cardstock inked with the Squeezed Lemonade distress ink, and attached it to the card.

I adhered my fox to the card, and to pull  everything together, I tied on a bit of twine, and scattered some hearts and small embellishments around as well.

I love how cute this fox is from ChiChi Memories! It has the sweetest face, don’t you think? I hope you’ve enjoyed, and thanks so very much for stopping by today!

 

Inspiration & Challenges

The colors for this card were inspired by the Monday Mood Board challenge #9; especially inspiring was the yellow texture on the green cactus, which I used to create the background for my panel.

This card has also been submitted into the Simon Says Stamp “Anything Goes” Monday challenge, the Simon Says Stamp “Anything Goes” Wednesday challenge and the AAA Cards challenge #38 “There’s a Hole in my Card”.
