Stampin’ Up! Foxy Friends Birthday Bear

Hi Stampers, today I have created a fun birthday card using the Foxy Friends bundle to create a Birthday Bear! I also used the Birthday Banners stamp set and a the new Balloon Adventures stamp set available January 4th.  Stampin’ Up! has so many fun birthday stamps it is difficult to just use one set!  

Birthday Bear

 

I started by stamping the two smallest balloons using the Birthday Banners stamp set.  I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to cut them out.  Next, I stamped the largest balloon using the new Balloon Adventures stamp set available on January 4th, and punched it too.
Birthday Bear

For the Birthday Bear, I punched out some Soft Suede using the Fox Builder Punch and rounded off the ears using my paper snips.  Then, the Foxy Friends paws were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Crumb Cake. I used the small circle die from the Gift Card Envelope & Thinlets Dies to cut the paws out.  Next, I cut out an oval for the nose/mouth area and attached it to the head, then used the face features stamp from Foxy Friends to stamp the eyes and nose.  Don’t you just love the birthday hat?  It is from the Party Animal Embellishments pack available on January 4th.  It contains Pacific Point birthday hats and Tangerine Tango Balloons.

The inside features a sentiment from Balloon Adventures and is stamped in Tangerine Tango ink.

To complete the Birthday Bear card, I decided to stamp one of the other fun balloons from Balloon Adventures on the envelope front.

Foxy Birthday for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

 

13592748_10210100021645360_3082821684988557281_n

 

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Birthday Theme Blog Hop!  I have a Foxy Friends card I made for another grandson’s birthday coming up next week.

 

 

Foxy

 

The Foxy Friends set is really a lot of fun to play with. And, there is a punch you can bundle with the stamps and save 10%.  I started by stamping the fox image in Calypso Coral and added the legs and facial features with Tuxedo Memento Black.  Then, I stamped the log image in Smoky Slate and cut it out with my Paper Snips.  The banner is from the Host Time of Year set and cut out with the Bunch of Banners Framelits die.

 

 

Foxy

 

I used one of the new Sweet and Sassy heart shaped framelits to cut out a heart in Pool Party card stock, then ran it through my Big Shot in the Woodgrain TIEF.  Next, I taped over 2 of the hearts in the conversation bubble stamp then inked it in Memento ink, removed the tape and stamped it onto a panel of Whisper White and fussy cut it out.  I pulled out the Happy stamp from Thoughtful Banners and stamped it in Calypso Coral inside the bubble and added a heart Metallic Enamel shape.

 

Foxy

 

 

I used some more of the images from Foxy Friends to stamp the footprints, trees and mushrooms for the inside of the card.  My sentiments came from Celebrate Today and You’re So Sweet.  

 

Card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Foxy Friends Birthday Take 2

My share today is Foxy Friends Birthday Take 2.  If you stopped by last time, you saw my first take on this cute new set.  I have a couple of grandsons having birthdays this month and decided to use Foxy Friends stamp set for both of them.  

Foxy Friends Birthday Take 2

 

Once I made first card, I just had to make another one with this wonderful A Little Foxy DSP.  I love these colors together.  I made 2 mats for the zig-zag panel, one in Calypso Coral, the other in Smoky Slate, then attached them to the Pool Party card base.  Behind the fox, i have a panel of Smoky Slate that I dry embossed in the Woodland TIEF.  It is  framed in Pool Party.

 

 

Foxy Friends Birthday Take 2

 

Next, I stamped the fox images that can be punched out with the new Fox Builder Punch that can be purchased as a bundle with Foxy Friends for a 10% discount, and punched them.  The stump is stamped in Basic Gray ink and fussy cut out, then added with dimensionals.  I attached the fox’s head to his body with a little glue, then sat him on the stump using dimensionals.  I slipped his tail in and used dimensionals there too.  

 

Foxy Friends 2

The banner is stamped with Time of Year (a host set) in Calypso Coral, and die cut using the new Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I used Thoughtful Banners for the word, Happy, and stamped 3 in Memento Black ink. Then, snipped around them with Paper Snips and added them with small pieces of Dimensionals.  My birthday banner is fussy cut from the A Little Foxy DSP with some Subtles Enamel Shapes added for some bling.(I used Dimensionals for the banner, too)

 

Foxy Friends

 

The inside is stamped with another fox image from Foxy Friends, and the sentiment is from Thoughtful Banners.  I added a strip of Subltes DSP (Calypso Coral) to the bottom to finish it off.  

Well, that is my Foxy Friends Birthday Take 2.  What do you think?  Hopefully, you have enjoyed my two takes on this fun new set!  Card stock cuts and a product list are at the end of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Foxy Friends Birthday

Happy Saturday!  My share for today is a birthday card using the new Foxy Friends stamp set.  In fact, I made 2 Foxy Friends birthday cards and will share the second one next time.  

 

Foxy Friends #1

 

I am playing along with the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, FMS#241

FMS Final 241-001

 

Foxy Friends #1

 

I received this fun stamp set and punch from my upline, Amy Koenders, at our last team meeting.  She always rewards us with fun new stamping products.  Thanks, Amy, I love this one 🙂 !

I used 2 panels from the coordinating DSP, A Little Foxy, for the front. They are snailed to a panel of Smoky Slate which frames them.  Then, I wrapped a strand of Calypso Coral Thick Baker’s Twine around 3 times and secured it with some tape before adding dimnensionals and attaching this to the Calypso Coral card base.  

My fox is stamped in Calypso Coral and Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto a panel of Whisper White, then die cut out.  I also stamped the little thought bubble in Memento ink onto Smoky Slate and fussy cut it.  The banner is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set bundle.  I added some of the new Subtles Enamel Shapes to the banners.

 

 

 

Foxy Friends #1

 

Foxy Friends can actually make several different animals.  A fox, a cat, a raccoon, a tiger, a deer and I suppose even a skunk!    

 

Foxy Friends 1

 

I stamped a different fox image from Foxy Friends for the inside Whisper White panel and added a sentiment from Thoughtful Banners.  The bottom of the panel has a strip from A Little Foxy DSP attached with some snail.  Isn’t this a cute birthday card?  

Products and card stock cuts will be listed at the end of this post.
