Jems July Blog Hop - Animals!

Welcome to our July blog hop!

Our theme this month is animals!!

There are so many cute sets featuring animals in the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue it was difficult to choose which to use but I went with the a little foxy suite – no foxes on this first project though!!

I knew I wanted to make both a 3D project and a card this time and started out by making the little gift box.

I used the fox builder punch and foxy friends stamp set to make my cute little cat, he’s punched out of whisper white card stock and the edges are sponged with smoky slate ink.

I used the colours from the a little foxy DSP as inspiration for these 2 projects; I love how they look together! Once I had made the ‘meow’ on the box with the labeller alphabet stamp set I knew I needed to think of a cute saying to go on the coordinating card to tie them both in!

 I do love this whole suite - I first used it for my team swaps at our recent team training day.  I started out with a fox, then as they were so small (but also very cute) I felt I should make a second and so the cat followed! I made 16 of each design plus a few extra for my daughter who instantly fell in love with them and watched me fascinated while I was making them!

They each hold a Hershey’s kiss and the project was very much inspired by this lovely ladies video

I completely changed my plans when I saw Hershey’s kisses for sale in a local shop, I had watched a few of Breanda's video’s using kisses already and as Hershey’s kisses remind me of 2 special holidays to Toronto I just had to buy them to use!

We also made some gorgeous cards and a picture at our team training using this same suite of products, I shall share them next week!

Enough rambling from me, please visit my fellow Jems to see what fab animal creations they have produced, just use the images below!

Thanks, Sam x
