August Step It Up Blog Hop - Foxy Little Reindeer

Welcome to the August 2016 Edition of the We Create Bloggers Step It Up Blog Hop! The idea is to inspire stampers with a basic design, and at least one alternate "stepped up" version of that same design. The basic version of my card is one we made in a Christmas in July card class this past weekend, featuring the Foxy Friends stamp set. Very simple and easy to reproduce, with a little bit of shiny Clear Wink of Stella on the hooves and antlers.

My stepped up version uses the coordinating Fox Builder Punch...which you can actually get together with the stamp set at a 10% discount in the Foxy Friends BUNDLE. I used the punch to pop up the little reindeer head, and I think it looks a billion times cuter!!! Of course, lacquering the hearts and the little nose with the Fine Tip Glue Pen adds bling, along with the Gold Wink of Stella on the antlers and hooves. Using Shimmery White card stock for the stamping layer reflects light into the images and makes them brighter, too. It doesn't hurt that I threw the deeper Bermuda Bay color into the stepped up version, for a bit more contrast.

  1. This is adorable! I like them both ways! :)

  2. I love trying to find the differences in the cards. I think the shiny hearts and nose are my favorite.

  3. I love to pop things up on my cards too. I go through a lot of dimensionals. Can't wait to get a hold of the fox stamp set and make cute cards too!

  4. oh Kimberley- how stinkin' cute! I am going to case this card for sure!

  5. oh Kimberley- this is so stinkin' cute- I can't wait to case your adorable card!! TFS!!

  6. Two super cute cards! I loved them both! Looking forward to joining y'all next month!

  7. Great cards. I love the addition of the embossing, Bermuda Bay and the addition of the three-dimension. All of these work to make the second card extra special. Thanks for sharing.
