This Little Bear is flying by to say “Happy Birthday”

Hi Everyone,

Here is another card design showing off the T-bird stamp, a cute little bear flying a plane with a birthday banner trailing behind to help you get acquainted with Purple Onion Designs. This card was created for a small four-year-old but really, it is sweet for any age.

You probably know that Stacey Yacula from Purple Onion Designs creates the most adorable little creatures and scenes.

Just Ducky Interactive Card by Lisa Tilson

Hi there,

We have a very special guest today, Lisa Tilson of the My Card Trip blog. She is an extraordinary designer and today’s design is BRILLIANT! So, without delay, I will turn it over to Lisa – be sure to watch her video, it’s awesome!

 

Hello there crafters!

I am delighted to be back as a Guest Designer here at Foiled Fox today and I have a fun and cute interactive card for you.  I have been wanting to use the My Favorite Things Peek-A-Boo Wheel Die-namics for some time now and thought I could pair it up with the recently released Just Ducky stamp set.

And as this is an interactive card, I have filmed a video for you 😊. It is always easier to watch an interactive card come together, so I hope that you find it useful. There are also a few hints and tips below to help you along the way if you fancy having a go at making one yourself. I have kept the focus of the video on the creation of the wheel itself and the assembly of the card as that is what is important here. I have not shown the colouring of the images, but I have listed the Copic numbers below if you are interested in seeing what I used.

So, here is the card that I have created today.

Hi Crafty Friends,

I am visiting you again with a new video. It demonstrates how you can use the beautiful stamp, Radiant by Penny Black three different ways. I guess I am a little obsessed with this stamp since I have used it before but it is the perfect bloom to fill a card design.

Take a look and see what you think. I love the use of the patterned paper and heat embossing to create a different look.
