Fusion Pattern Paper Stamping Foxes

Gorjuss Little Foxes Lawn Fawn Quinn's ABCs Simon Says Stamp Birthday Card

My local craft club has challenged us to use all the bits we've collected from each other, but not put on a card. I was admiring a friend's gorgeous use of corner stickers, when she handed me a sheet and told me to use them on a card and bring it next time.  This is my first time using stickers and I'm quite happy with the result (Not a patch on my crafty friend's card though!)

I've played along with the Fusion Challenge combining the sketch with the pinks, greys, silver and distressed look. The layer of vellum puts me in mind of the draped cloth in the picture as well. I usually use the stamp without the foxes, so when I was informed that the birthday girl is a big fan of foxes, I was delighted to colour up these furry little creatures for Stamping Senations October Challenge.
I've used two different patterned papers for the Lawnscaping Challenge and all clear stamps to join in with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Dotty CAS(E) Wplus9 Mood

I couldn't wait for Wplus9's Pretty Poinsettias release, so I had a go at making my own using Fresh Cut Florals. I tried to echo the shape of the flowers in the Monday Mood Board #21 and pick up the red, green, white and gold colours from the board. 
I've use CTS #48 by N@ Ali and a dotty swirl background by Hero Arts with dotty gold liquid pearl flower centres. Seems I'm going dotty for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

I've stamped the larger double leaf from Fresh Cut Florals three times for the poinsettia petals and three times for the leaves, then fussy cut and layered them.

This is one of my World Card Making Day creations, I'll post some more when I get/make the time. Hope you we're able to get creative and had fun yesterday!

Friends Always

I've been wanting to try a card like this for ages, but didn't have any solid geometric shaped stamps or so I thought! While making the card in the previous post I spotted some circular tree tops and some extra crafting time was found. I've used the colours from Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge and the layout from CAS(E) this Sketch. It's another single layer card with some gold embossing for the One Layer Wednesday Challenge. Please excuse this dull rainy evening photo, but even during the day the light quality is poor here at the moment.
