Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Colour Challenge

This is the second month of a BRAND NEW blog hop, and you'll get to meet more stampers from all over the world in this round! My name is Kimberley and I am in the United States, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This month we get to share a Colour/Color Challenge ;-) We can use any or all of these colors, along with Basic Black, Whisper White and/or Very Vanilla.


I decided to use all of the colors, on a Very Vanilla base, to create my own background paper for something called a One Sheet Wonder. This is the 8-1/2" x 11" sheet I used to create my patterned paper using the Foxy Friends stamp set:


Then I cut this sheet according to the directions in my One Sheet Wonder Cutting Template & Card Pattern PDF, and laid them out onto 10 card bases. I decided to use Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon for the bases, so I could stamp greetings on them using the Basic Black Archival ink pad. For the greetings, I used only the Tin of Cards stamp set. I might spruce up these cards later with bits of bling here and there, but for now I wanted to keep them simple to show how quickly you can create a handful of cards.






I *never* would have put all these colors together on my own, so this really was a challenge for me. I think this set of cards certainly gives you a good idea of the versatility of the Foxy Friends stamp set. I might have to make another patterned sheet using the fox only with Cucumber Crush and Real Red for some super adorable Christmas cards!

That little fox is so cute! I wouldn't have thought about using it for an one sheet wonder.
