Foxy Friends Baby Cards


Hi Friends! Last night I held my monthly All Occasion Card Class and as per request from one of my stampers, we made baby theme cards. I actually don't have any baby/children stamp sets at the moment, so I decided to use the adorable "Foxy Friends" stamp set and coordinating punch.





My friends at last night's class had never heard of or seen "punch art" before so I couldn't wait to show them another fun use of our punches. Also, 4H is very big in our area so I decided to create a cute little cow for our cards. 

These are the pieces you'll need to cut with the Fox Builder Punch to create a little cow:
Black marker was used to create the 'spots' and it's face. I also used a Stampin' Dimensional to adhere the head to the body.

This morning I made two more cards, using the extra supplies from last night's class. Instead of a birthday card I used the "Sweet Baby" sentiment from "Itty Bitty Greetings" and instead of the Hardwood background stamp set I used the "Barn Door". 

Since I had the "Barn Door" stamp set out, 
I decided to change up the design to make this card:


The second card we made last night featured two techniques; 
the eclipse technique and the masking technique:


If the "Eclipse" technique is new to you, you can see my video for it here. Instead of using the foam pieces behind the letters (as I did in the video), we used our Foam Adhesive Strips



My card classes are my 'social' time, where I not only teach, but I also get to enjoy some 'girl time' with friends and stamp and play!

Here is the third card we made, cased & tweaked from Cristina Raak:


Is this card caaaa-UTE or WHAT? 
We have some new stamps coming out in next month that will be awesome for this card layout! So you'll be seeing an updated version of this card soon! 

Debbie, with her adorable card!

The "Miss You" sentiment and grass images are from the "Enjoy Life" stamp set.

We had so much FUN making our cards last night....
...as I think you can tell by the state of this table! LOL

With the busyness of the holiday season, I can't think of a nicer way to relax and unwind than stamping with friends!

I also made my favourite cake to share with the gals last night - they LOVED it as much as I do! I've been making this cake for over 20 years and it never fails impress. I'm happy to share the recipe with you - just click here. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do!
