Happy Wednesday everyone...are you warm wherever you are? Its cold, cold, cold here...temps in the teens in Virginia...not so much fun. And the hubs is in NYC so I'm praying that we have NO incidents with frozen pipes tonight..because I may lose my head if they do...I'm so over it all ugh. Spring...ohhhh spring where art thou Spring???????
Then you have Baylee my other cairn (on right) who HATES the snow...she's my outside dog that wants to be out all the time UNLESS its snowing. And Casey never wants to spend time outside unless it IS snowing! Ay yi yi they try and make me crazy me thinks. Baylee was staring at me with her ears back cuz she'd had ENOUGH of my picture taking and wanted to come in LOL!

Happy Tuesday everyone! It is a SNOWY & COLD Tuesday here in Virginia. We are being hit with another cold blast this week and supposedly 8 inches of snow...can you tell I'm so thrilled. I told Winter I was breaking up with him but he didn't get the message ;) So it took a whole week for me to get over the flu...I am not wishing it on anyone that's for sure, so hope everyone is doing well. And my pipe mess is cleaned up but we still have to drywall the walls and paint and redo the carpet so that will take a few weekends to get it all done. No fun that's for sure...doing that work delays all the OTHER work I gotta do LOL..oy vey!

Isn't Freida Fox the cutest...yes she's a girl in the set but I have made "her" a "boy" for this project lol! So I'm naming him FRED FOX for my project today bwahahaha! This stamp set is from Reverse Confetti's new line of "Quirky Cuties" that are being released today...hop over to the store to check them ALL out! I am looking ahead towards Valentine's Day so I decided to make a fun V-Day card boy style. My last project with this set HERE was girly themed so I decided to switch it up a bit.
The papers are a mix of Docrafts Papermania (b&w) and Bazzill Basics (red). I used a few of my Spellbinders dies to make the pinking circle element and the hearts...and a CB folder to emboss the white cardstock. The arrow I made myself because I lack any arrow dies (need the Confetti die here) and stamped the "Hey Foxy!" in white palette ink on it. HINT: she/he would be cute flocked.
So YES Freida Fox can be turned into Fred Fox heehee...love to make my stamps versatile in many ways so by cropping off the bottom of "her" it eliminated the dress. I paperpieced his sweater and scarf to match the papers I used. TIP: always shade your paper pieces when you have a colored image or else the paper piecing looks flat next to your lovely shaded and colored image. I shaded mine with C7 & C5 to add in some dimension. And I colored the image with Copics...the C Grays and then added Diamond Glaze to his "optional" glasses you can add on. I also decided to cut him out and pop him up with dimensionals on my embossed circle...I love lots of layers and textures on my cards!

And thank you Jen for asking me to be a Guest Designer for this release...I was honored to be a part of this & so enjoyed it!
Isn't Freida Fox the cutest? She's from Reverse Confetti's new line of "Quirky Cuties" that are being released on the 8th! I was excited to use papers that weren't Christmas themed LOL...as much as I love the winter holidays I was ready for more spring-like colors and patterns. This car would be perfect for Valentines Day, Birthdays or any friend-event you might have. I distressed all my paper edges, layered some flowers and die cuts and added the cute sentiment to the side of the image. The image was colored with a mix of Copics & Touch Twin markers and then I added some Stickles on her dress for pretty sparkle. I added white polka-dots to her scarf to match the patterned paper.
that are sneak peeking for TWO chances to win!
And stop back on the 8th for the hop & my next project for the release!
