Blog Hop: Hello Foxy June SOTM

Welcome to June and our consultant blog hop featuring the Hello Foxy Stamp set. 

 If you have come here from Michelle's Blog, you are traveling through a big circle of 23 consultants.  Next, to continue through the circle, you will travel on to Gina's Blog

This month I am doing a card class featuring the "Z-Fold" style of card.  There are several different ways to create a Z-Fold and I created one using the Hello Foxy set.

For this particular card, I added a second layer to the fold so you can add another element to the card.  Here you can see the fox and flower I have added.  The 1/2" band of paper lies about half way between the front and back of the card to give it a 3-D look.   

To color the stamped images, I used the water-brush and ink from the open top of the ink pads to get a light water color look.  The colors on the wreath are Blossom, Lemon and Emerald.  I used the same colors for the flower with the fox.  For the fox, I used Sorbet.  

This card is very simple and easy but effective.  Stamping with the Memento Ink and watercoloring helps to create the soft look of the flowers. 

And to add an element from last month's stamp of the month, I colored these two foxes with my Shin Han markers, Mahogany and Pastel Peach.  Another simple and easy card. 

You can purchase this stamp set from your consultants website.  It is $5 with a $50 purchase and Close to My Heart is hosting a flash sale until June 2nd 2 p.m. PDT and your purchase of sale items can be counted toward your discount for the stamp of the month.  Don't have a CTMH consultant?  Visit my website here for the same benefits! 

No off to see more of the little woodland foxes on Gina's Blog.  

Happy Stamping,


  1. Love your cards. The Double Z Fold is adorable!

  2. I love your z-fold card. The little fox is a cute surprise inside with all the flowery parts showing on the front.

  3. Love the z fold card! Love the colors!

  4. Love the Z-fold card. Great job with color choices.

  5. sweet and fun! It looks GREAT with the paper pack you chose!

  6. Awesome cards! I like the z-fold and that you used pink!

  7. OMGosh! Love all of your cards! I love the design and femininity of the first, but I love the simplicity of the second and third card. I am particularly fond of CAS cards and they are both wonderful. However, I have to say that the third is my favorite. Very clever using "together" with the two foxes. Love it!!

  8. Beautiful cards Michele!! Love them all! <3

  9. Fantastic cards! I'm happy I don't have to choose a favorite because that would be very difficult.
