Hello Foxy

Hi readers! Thanks for stopping by today :) We’re so excited to welcome back the fabulous Jennifer Jackson of Newton’s Nook to our blog! She is such a fun designer and she so graciously made two cards for us to showcase on the blog today!

Hello! This is Jen from Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m SO EXCITED to be featured today! I’m sharing one of my favorite new stamp sets that I designed for this holiday season called “Fox Hollow.” I am in love with these cute little fox images because they are just so fun to color and create winter scenes with! I just love the striking color combo of the orange fox with green and white accents for holiday and Winter cards!

Directions:

For this fun Fox card I wanted to create a light and airy winter scene! I started out by using the Simon Says Stamp Falling snow stencil with some Bo Bunny glitter paste! I love the soft glittery snowy sky! Then I layered a couple of snowbanks created from the Neenah White cardstock. I just used a scissor to cut these out freehand. I stamped the “Happy Winter” from the Fox Hollow stamp set on the front snowbank. I stamped three trees  and fox from the Fox Hollow Stamp set, colored them with copics and die cut them with the coordinating Fox Hollow Die Set. These trees are perfect to tuck behind the layers of snow! I used the fox for the focal image, centering him on the front of the card! I love this fun winter scene!

Directions:

For this sweet and simple foxy card, I started with a panel of Canson watercolor paper.  I cut out a heart using the Sizzix Heart Framelit die and held it lightly in place as a mask on the watercolor paper while I colored around it using shades of green Zig Clean Color Brush markers. I stamped the “Hello Foxy” sentiment in the middle of the heart with Archival Jet Black ink. Then I stamped the fox couple on a separate piece of watercolor paper using Archival Jet Black ink and colored the foxes with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers. I love how vibrant these color while still giving a watercolor look! I finished off the card by adding a bit of glitter to them with a Wink of Stella clear glitter brush. I love the bit of added sparkle!

  1. Ohhh how adorable are those little foxies! I may have to try getting a few of these as I have at least one face book friend that loves foxies! I haven’t let her know yet that I just sent her a little parcel with a couple of foxy garland deco’s and one little gorgeous deer one too, as well as a couple of stamp sets!! Hopefully it will just help to cheer her up as she’s not been doing to well just this week and has been in hospital! Gorgeous cards made with these too!
