So Stinkin' Cute

Foxy friends, Here for you, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #bjpeters, #stampinup,, #foxyfriendsPerhaps you are like me and have seen dozens of cute little critters on pinterest using the Foxy Friends bundle.  You've seen some of them posted here on my blog - but I hadn't tackled the skunk yet.   Then when I was looking for a greeting the other day and came across the "Well, this just stinks."  from the Here for you stamp set, I know it was time. 

Foxy friends, Here for you, Stampin' Up!, BJ PEters, #foxyfriends, #hereforyou, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.comThe end result is a super fun card that will be really fun to give for those "special occasions".   Such as when the hose on your washer breaks and you have water all over the laundry room (ask me how I know).  My friend Sharon inspired this card. 

The tail is actually created by punching 3 tails and then putting them together in a fan type fashion.  I found that glue dots worked well for this.  The black and white paper came from the Pop of Pink specialty designer series paper. 


My Prince & Acorny Thank You

BJ Peters, #stampinbj.comI had a little creative assistance this weekend - if you could call it that.  My puppy - Prince, decided since it was just the two of us home for the weekend, that he would demand a little (or a lot) of my attention!   He had to sit or lay on a chair right next to mine as I spent the weekend creating projects to share with you all.   He didn't want to sit very still taking a selfie though. . . we'll have to work on that.

Acorny thank you, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #acornythankyou, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.comMy goal was to make some fall themed cards for my upcoming classes.  I used the Moroccan designer series paper to give me the color scheme and then just played off those colors.  This designer series paper collection worked pretty well for that.

Acorny Thank You, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #acornythankyou, #stampinup,, #bjpetersThe acorns are punched with the acorn builder punch.  Notice the top of the acorn is also the Moroccan designer series paper?  I added a bit of the Burlap Ribbon - just a few strands cut apart.    Certainly a quick and easy fall card since my creative partner wasn't much help in the creativity department.
