I asked the class four different questions about the Holiday Catalog.

  1. What is your favorite stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.
  2. What is your favorite fall stamp set from the Holiday Catalog
  3. What is your favorite bundle from the Holiday Catalog
  4. What is your accessory from the Holiday Catalog

I kinda feel like Family Fuede….And the Survey Say’s……

As you can see.  There is so much to love about the new Holiday Catlaog.  There is defantly something for everyone!  Now, on with today’s card.  I am playing along with the Fab Friday Challenge!  This talented group of artiest have cooked up a extra special color challenge.  Fab Friday Logos-002

All these colors are perfect for fall!  And combining them brings a richness to your projects. Make sure you visit Fab Friday and check out all the creations by the Design Team!  Because this is the first day of the Holiday Catalog I wanted to use one of my newest stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.  My wish list is so long that I have bought a few new items every couple of weeks to show you guys.  Thankful Forest Friends is just to cute.  The little Forest Friends are adorable….The Thankful stamp is from Acorney Thank You. (one of my personal favs. from the Holiday Catalog)


I’m just crazy for how the cute little fox turned out!!!

Here are the Detals:

  • The card base is Tip Top Taupe card stock cut at 5 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4 inches
  • The layers are Blackberry Bliss (5 3/8 by 4 1/8), Old Olive (5 1/2 by 4),  Into The Woods Designer Series Paper (5 by 3), and Delightful Dijon (5 by 1 1/4)
  • The Tip Top Taupe strip is 5 by 1/2 inches. Use the Decorative Dots Textured Impression and your big shot to emboss the strip
  • Stamp Thankful in Blackberry Bliss onto the Delightful Dijon layer
  • The fox is stamped on whisper white using Tangelo Twist ink.  If you look close the fox is not all Tangelo Twist.  I inked the fox with Tangelo Twist then using a sponge dabber dabbed a little Tip Top Taupe for some contrast
  • The Squares are 2 1/4 inches, 2 inches, and 1 3/4 inches.

Now don’t forget to decorate your envelopes.  It’s the most fun part is to make the package as pretty a the card inside!!! IMAG2021

I stamped a second fox to make a sticker as the envelope seal!!!

  1. Aw I just love that fox image! I like how you layered him on multiple layers and shapes for interest. He is small so could get lost on a card by himself but you made sure he stood out! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

    • Amanda- thank you! Getting the foxes layers just right was the hardest part!!! Like I told Brian, I enjoy playing along with you guys! Yall are packed full of great talent!

  2. Jennifer – I just love how you incorporated these colors into the card without them feeling forced at all. Such a cute card! Thanks for playing along with this FabFriday color challenge.
