Mornin’, everybody! Hope your week is going well, and that you’ve taken advantage of the 25% off savings for the World Card Making Day special from Stampin’ Up!
I did another quick and easy card for today. I’ll admit that I haven’t been feeling too awfully good these past 3 or 4 days. Apparently, the “oh, sinus infections are typically not contagious” sinus infection that Wayne came home with is…a least a little bit…contagious! I personally think it’s a head-cold-gone-bad, but…he’s insisting that I go to the doctor. So when you read this, I’ll be on my way to let them tell me I have a head cold.
Maybe they won’t tell me to not be such a baby! That would be pretty sucky bedside manner, huh? 😉
So, when my teeth finally quit hurting and I was able to rouse from my fugue state in the recliner on Monday, I’d already been designing a card in my head while I “watched tv”. It had some Perfect Pines and a fun little Foxy Friends dude in it. And that’s actually how it ended up, too! Take a look-see:
Stamp Ink Paper had a card maker’s choice challenge this week, so I played along with it – SIP sketch #68:
I started this one by stamping three of the trees from Peaceful Pines in Emerald Envy on some Whisper White card stock. Then I cut them all out with their matching die from the Perfect Pines Framelits.
For the card front, I used a panel of Whisper White. I dry-fit the trees, to figure where my Foxy Friends fox needed to be. I inked up just the front half of him in Real Red, and stamped him onto the panel. I added his eyeballs and nose with the image in Foxy Friends, stamping it in Basic Black Archival Ink. Then I ran it all thru the Big Shot in my Softly Falling TIEF.
My sentiment is from the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set, stamped in Real Red. Then I SNAILd the whole thing to a Real Red mat, and the card front was done! 🙂
The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got an Emerald Envy Peaceful Pines tree…
Et Voila! The card turned out just how I’d pictured it in my Nyquil-induced mist. It’s easy at this time of year to forget about the fun sets in the Annual Catalog – like Endless Birthday Wishes! Be sure you don’t “shoehorn” stamp sets into slots, okay? Endless Birthday Wishes yielded an everyday, just sayin’ hello, card! And, I love the Peaceful Pines stamp set with its Perfect Pines Framelits. This is my first go with Foxy Friends – next time I need to use the matching Fox Builder Punch! Hope you like!

So, if you want to get on the backorder list – it’s currently showing it will be back in stock on 24 Oct – you need to get your order in before tomorrow, Wednesday, 5 Oct at 8:00 AM (MT)!! The online store will show that the item is backordered – but will allow you to continue. Here’s a link right to the Copper Foil Sheets.
