Jem's Blog Hop - Animals!

 Back to the beginning of the Blog Hop!

Good morning crafters!

So I see you have just joined me from Julie Wade's blog, I hope you enjoyed their animal cards, I am sure you have. Well now you are with me Sarah Lindsay and incase you didn't get the theme it is Animals!

So for my post I decided to use the Foxy Friends Photopolymer Bundle, this includes the stamp set and the punch that coordinates with it.

I love this stamp set as I don't just have to make a fox, I can make a raccoon, a squirrell, a lion, a tiger oh my! and many more animals that I may not have thought of yet. Also I don't have to get my big shot out if I cannot be bothered to as I can do it all sitting at my table with some card, stamps and a punch.

The lion was done with Daffodil Delight cardstock and ink and the mane was made using one of the May Flowers Framelit dies, however it can be cut out freehand. The lion's tail was cut out freehand from the tail punch bit.

The tiger was made using Pumpkin Pie ink and the stripes were drawn on using a black pen. The squirrell from the top picture was done by drawing in two front teeth and colouring them in with a white gel pen.

I paired the stamps with the coordinating paper set, A Little Foxy DSP, and it just works really well with it. I also used the Woodlands embossing folder and just having the image and a sentiment keeps it quite simple yet effective!

One of the lion cards uses a different paper stack which is called Serene Scenery and this has loads of different images of real scenes, see if you can work out which one it is! I love that paper pack also (along with everything else) as there is so much I can and want to do with it, just need to get more time!

So that is that from me for now, please follow the links below to check out the next post in our blog hop and some more brilliant creations. Hope you check back with me soon and thank you for reading my blog.
