Wacky Wednesday – Happy S’Mores Day Card

Hello everyone~

Today my Facebook friends got to vote on what card to highlight for Wacky Wednesday.  They got to choose between two holidays – National Duran Duran Day or National S’Mores Day.  You guessed it – they picked s’mores.

I had a totally different idea when I went into my stamping area, but luckily, inspiration came quickly and brought some fire (yes, pun intended) into the design.

I used only three punches for this card and both the Foxy Friends and Fresh Fruit stamp sets (the phrase is from the Fresh Fruit stamp set).

I sponged the bottom of the main image and the marshmallow with Soft Suede.  The stick is our new classic label punch, punched only a one-third width.  The logs are the same label punch, and the flames are the tail of the Foxy Friend punch.  The marshmallow is the 1/2″ circle punch.

Of course, I used a marker to adjust the saying.  I’ll practice that a bit more the next time.

That little raccoon is just the sweetest little thing, don’t ya think?

Wacky Wednesday – Foxy Friends Trash Can Raccoon Party Animal

Hi everyone~

Yeah, best-laid plans for July just didn’t happen.  Sorry about that, but a little bit of life got in the way!

I’m starting out August in true Wacky Wednesday form.  I hosted a Foxy Friends Stamp Camp last night with some very excited stampers.  They have been going bonkers with this stamp set and were primed for a great night of stamping and punching fun.

I oftentimes look at Pinterest to start my planning of stamp camps; sometimes I CASE (Copy and Steal Everything) a project, and sometimes I just use it as a springboard to start my creative juices flowing.

The project I am sharing today is something that came to me late one night, and instead of sleeping, I planned out the pieces and parts of the card.  I just love this one and am happy to share it.  At last night’s event, the card was a horizontal orientation.  One of my customers flipped it, and I actually liked this way better.  Thanks, Linda!

Here it is.  Even a raccoon rummaging through trash is cute with this stamp set!
