Make A Wish…It’s Your Day!

Hi Crafty Friends,

One of my favorite types of cards to make is a birthday card. Mostly because coming from a large family I am always in need of one and they are great to have on hand. This card design is a sweet, feminine one using the Pinkfresh Make A Wish stamp and die set and a wonderful fancy-shaped die from Papertrey Ink, making its debut. Papertrey Ink is a new line The Foiled Fox shop will be carrying.. so keep your eyes peeled for more in the coming week.

In case you don’t know about Papertrey Ink, they ALWAYS have fresh and fabulous stamps, dies and other creative and cool stuff. They also create for their new division, Ink To Paper, which is super awesome too! Check that out too!

Fine Line Florals with Alcohol Ink Backgrounds

Hi there,

I am back one more time using the Concord & 9th Fine Line Florals stamp and die set. It is such a beautiful flower that I can’t seem to let it alone.

This time I am only using the big blossom and leaf, plus the matching dies and teaming them up with an alcohol ink background. In case you haven’t noticed, I am obsessed with the bright and bold look the alcohol inks give you.
