Sweet Little Fox

Well hello there! Long time, no blog! You've heard that a lot from me, haven't you? WELL! I've been on a bit of a cardmaking roll this weekend, so I'll be here blogging at least a few times this week!! Which means I'll probably lose some more followers. Whenever I actually blog after a long break, a bunch of people unsubscribe. It's like "oh yeah, I forgot about her, I should delete her!" Nice. HAHAHA! Oh well. But please do consider keeping me around, because I actually have a few fun stampy things coming soon - a guest design spot - a return to a design team I love - yup, that's right, I hope to rejoin the stamping world in 2012! WOOT!

But enough blah blah blah, let's get to today's card, shall we?


I tried out such a FUN technique for this card!! My genius friend Lydia shared it a little while back. I stamped the sweet little Hero Arts Sleepy Fox in black ink, then set it on a light box with another paper on top of it. I used the lines as a guide as I colored with Copics. The result - my sweet little fox is pure Copic, it doesn't have a black line!!! It looks almost like a painting! So much fun!!


I also turned to one of my all-time favorite blog challenges for this card - Mojo Monday!! It's been way too long since their awesome sketches got my mojo flowing!


Thanks for stopping by, I so appreciate all of you who have stuck with me through the thick & thin!!


  • Stamps: E5466 Sleepy Fox, CL272 All Occasion Messages from Hero Arts
  • Paper: White & pink cardstock, Echo Park Dots & Stripes DP
  • Ink: Copic markers, Memento tuxedo black
  • Other: Tiny Attacher (staples), pink ribbon (May Arts from Hambo Stamps), green scallop ribbon from stash, Spellbinders die, white heart button
