When I first saw the Foxy Friends stamp set from Stampin Up, I loved it and couldn’t wait to play with it. There are so many cute animals (and people) that can be made with the stamps and matching punch. There is even a 6×6 paper pack available that matches it. Here are the 5 projects we made in class together:
This was quick and easy to make, and who doesn’t love a fuzzy kitty? To keep it simple, we used the pre-cut and scored notecards, and adding the little heart was just enough to finish this card off. Inside, it says…”it’s your birthday” with a cake, and kitty tracks.
Not much stamping involved for the cute little skunk, just the face. The pieces were punched out with the punch, then assembled with glue, super easy. Later, we added a tiny matching flower with a gem to this little skunk either in the hair (for a girl) or on the chest (for a boy). A little bling goes a long way when you’re dressing up a skunk! The measurements for this card are 4.25 x 5.5 for the base, and the piece of pool party that “opens” is 3 x 8″, scored at 4″.
Awww, I can’t get enough of that cute onesie with a tiny fox on it! The fox is cut from the matching paper pack and it’s a perfect fit to the “baby’s first framelits” outfit. The fancy fold here was super easy, it’s just a 5.5 x 8.5″ card, scored in horizontal position at 1.5 and 4.25. The bow helps hold the card stand, plus it’s pretty. Have you tried making a “fork bow” yet? They are so easy, you have to try it. Hint: it helps if you have a “meat fork”.
This little critter was begging for a little bell to hang off his tail, so adorable! Easy fold too, the card is 4.25 x 11, scored at 2.75 and 8.25 to create a “shutter fold” card. I could have added a real metal jingle bell from Stampin Up to his tail, that would have been cuter yet…but this one won’t require extra postage or a padded envelope.
Last but not least, this is a card + a gift! The little fox lip balms came from Avon, and I designed the card around those colors. I came up with this fold by accident when I was trying to save paper while making a “box card”. I call this one a “bowed window card” and it’s fun to make. The measurements are 4.25 x 11″, scored at 5.5 + 6 + 6.5 + 10 + 10.5. I cut an oval from the center of the smaller panel, and when you adhere this together, the front window curves outward, which allows the card to stand. We added a rubber band strung behind the card stock (with holes punched) on the side to hold the lip balm, easy! We will be sure to use this card layout again in the future, you never know what we’ll come up with. Other things that might fit there…a pack of gum, a small candy bar, a sucker, lip stick, small perfume, all kinds of goodies! Hmmm, what else could fit there?
Oops, I almost forgot to share the sign that greeted the ladies who came to stamp with me…and yes, they were all “foxy friends”!
If you haven’t tried this stamp set and punch yet, they are a lot of fun! Thanks again to all the ladies who came to stamp with me, it was a fun class!
