Stampin' Up! A Little Foxy Card, PPA #314, Better Together Stamp Set, Susan Itell - simplestampin

 

Here is a super sweet and easy card that would “fit the bill” for so many people! We all can use a “Just a Note” card in our stash to say hello to a friend! There is just something about these fox that are too cute for words!

Thursdays are Pals Paper Art Days and today we have a great sketch from PAL Amy Lazzell. I admit, when I first saw it I scratched my head as I know one thing that I do with these sketches…I take them too literally and I just need to roll with it! (sounds funny right???? I preach to you to just do it) 🙂

 

 

PPA-314-Aug18

 

Thanks to the DSP already having the dear little critters on it – all I needed to do was a quick cut with my trimmer and I was good to go. You know me, I need to make sure that it was balanced so I used (6) of them and then a quick mat in Basic Gray to make them pop! This paper bundle has many great prints like this that really make whipping up a card in a jif – SUPER EASY!

Because the card was “rather plain” I felt that it needed a little something more SO….

 

When in doubt – pull an embossing folder out!

That’s my motto and I am going to stick by it! It is amazing how a quick and simple touch of an embossing folder makes such a difference! I also think that there are certain colors that also lends themselves to making a WOW – and this color, Flirty Flamingo is one that POPS!

Are you scratching your head with where this sentiment came from? For some reason I missed this GEM OF A STAMP SET in the annual catalog but no worries now, it has a home on Randall Lane forever! This is filed with super sentiments but also I adore the little stamps ~ perfect accents!

Remember when I said that I was scratching my head when I was trying to come up with a card today!?!? Well if you look at the sketch you will see the 3 elements….my 3 elements….are the… in “Just a note…” Seemed to be a perfect touch for me as we all know I have a bit of an obsession of these 3 friends!

I did heat embossed it with the white embossing power! I knew that it would POP against the richness of this Basic Gray. Remember, get in the habit of using an embossing buddy to help eliminate static and also turn your heat tool on and let it get good and hot before you take it to your project!

You all know that I am head over heels over the DSP Paper Stacks…..they are another one that I say…

 

When in doubt – pull the DSP Stacks out!

You must admit, this is a super easy card but it still is super cute. Letting the DSP do the work for you makes it a breeze. Just think of how many cards you could make from a sheet of DSP….you could also leave the sentiment blank and then when you need a card – just find the appropriate sentiment!
