Lawn Fawn: Winter Fox

Hi all!

So it begins: Another Lawn Fawn Inspiration week!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Today, the Fawny Girls are banding together to make something with the Winter Fox stamp set!

So meet today’s card.

The fox is from the set, while the tree is from Critters in the Forest and the heart and words are from Making Frosty Friends.

I made the snowy hill by just slapping on some tape and then dumping a whole lot glitter on top. True story:ย  Glitter and I are not friends. We don’t play well together. But I really do never tire of making glittery, snowy hills. ๐Ÿ™‚ They are so easy and so fun.

For more projects that use Winter Fox, check out the blogs of all the Fawny Girls.

Today’s card (10-3)

Hi everybody!

Meet today’s card!

The words are from the new and coming soon October Studio AE stamp set from Technique Tuesday.

The new set is called, “Give Thanks by Ali Edwards.”

Here’s a peek of the whole set for you.

It should be on the Technique Tuesday Web site soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

The leaves on my card are part of a trim I picked up at a sewing store. I cut up the trim to get the three leaves and then added the stitching to them with floss.

Kinda fun!

Be back later.

See you again soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

PS. For more October Studio AE peeks, check out the blogs of Sharyn, Daniela and Laura.
