Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! If you've just come from Kathy Burrow's blog you're on the right path. If you'd like to see the whole list you can find it at Melinda Everitt's blog. We have 23 consultants sharing their creations with so many different ideas for using the Hello Foxy stamp set. I hope you'll enjoy them all! Here's the lovely stamp set we're working with:
We have a family of red foxes that live in the woods half a mile from our house. I decided to make a hollow log home for the foxes I stamped.
I used a strip of Kraft cardstock from the Rustic Home Fundamentals pack that was clear embossed with a wood pattern. I sponged Chocolate ink over the strip, shading it more on the bottom, die cut an oval backed with black cardstock, and traced the oval on the right edge for a curved lob end. I also used the oval scrap to make an extra limb. I experimented with placing a double layer of 3-D Foam tape in the center of the log and adhesive on the edges so that the log would appear rounded.
I put a small fox inside the "den" and the larger one outside looking in. I stamped the largest one twice and fussy cut the head and tail again to pop up over the entire fox using Thin 3-D Foam Tape. Both foxes were colored using Sorbet Ink squeezed on the lid of the stamp pad and a Blending Pen. The flowers were colored with alcohol inks and fussy cut.
I used one of our newest papers from the Prickly Pear paper pack and Prickly Pear Sequins for embellishment. Under the sentiment I put strips of Aqua and Coral Shimmer Trims
These Shimmer trims and the Blending Pen are on the list to be retired this summer, so if these would enhance your projects, be sure to get them while supplies last!
