INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Thick Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your patterned paper at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Attach to card base. 3. Let’s make our Skunk now. Punch:
~Basic Black: head, body, tail
~Whisper White: Body, Face part, hair, tail
NOTE: The easiest way to slim down the Tail stripe is to attach it to the sticky part of a Post-It note and hold it in the tail part of the punch trimming off the same width along one side.
~Flirty Flamingo (small flower on Blossom Builder Punch)
~Use the smallest Layering Oval Framelit on the Whisper White Body punch out to cut the white body front. 4. Assemble and glue together:
~The Head: Basic Black Head, Whisper White face piece and hair. Use your Basic Black Marker to edge the hair. Choose the Eyes & nose stamp you want and Stamp it on the white face piece with Memento Black ink. Now add the Flower with a Pearl in the center.
~Body: Glue the Whisper White oval cut out to the Basic Black Body. Glue the Body to the Head.
~Tail: Glue the Whisper White stripe to the Basic Black Tail. Glue to the Body.
We are now finished with the Skunk. 5. Cut your Whisper White Tag at 1-7/8″ x 4″. Punch off the top with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. Decide where to stamp your Fresh Fruit Circles, the stamp in Memento Black ink. 6. Attach your Skunk to the Tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used half Dimensionals. 7. Add your Washi Tape at the lower part of your Tag. 8. Add your Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon to your Tag Hole. I used about 6″ of Ribbon, folded it in half, then put the folded edge through the front of the Tag Hole. I then threaded both ends through the ribbon loop at the back of the Tag Hole and pulled the Ribbon tight. Attach the Tag to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, making sure one of the half Dimensionals is on the Ribbon.
I hope you have as much fun making animals as I have with the Foxy Friends Bundle!
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Let’s make the Bunny first. You can use either a 1-1/2″ strip or a 2-1/2″ strip of Whisper White to punch out the Bunny Body, Head, and two Tails which become ears. Punch out 1 Pink Pirouette Classic Label. Fold it in half so the points match, then cut on the fold line. 2. Hold the two “Ears” (Tail punch part) together and trim off the curved ends to get the shape of ears you want. Trim the Pink Pirouette Label halves (at the same time) to get the inside of the Bunny Ears. I had the pointed part of the Classic Label go at the bottom of the Ears. Glue together. 3. Trim the ears off the Bunny Head. Choose the eyes and nose stamp you want. Stamp the face. It was easier to dot each eye on the Memento Black and the nose on the Flirty Flamingo ink pad, then to use Markers. Make sure there is no excess ink on the stamp as it will end up on your Bunny. Glue the ears to the head now. 4. Stamp two Flirty Flamingo paws on the Bunny Body. Glue the Body to the Head. 5. Stamp the Tree Stump on Chocolate Chip card stock with Early Espresso ink. Cut out. All the small stuff is finished now. 6. Cut your Whisper White card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Sponge the “Grass” with Crushed Cucumber ink at the bottom. Stamp the multi-leaf stem in Wild Wasabi ink on the grass and at the top of the card front (Tree leaves). Sponge the center with Soft Sky ink until you get the shade you like. 7. Lay out the Tree Stump and the Bunny in the desired position. Attach the stump first. I attached the Bunny with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add a sentiment if desired. 8. Cut your Pink Pirouette card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. Attach your card front to your card base.
Have fun adding a Bunny to your collection of Foxy Friends animals.

~Blushing Bride ink = most solid stamp
~Rose Red-stamp that looks like just part of a petal

If you insert the strip from the right, parts will be punched out of your petals. 4. Decide where you want your flower. Stamp your stem in Wild Wasabi ink.

So grab some supplies and a Christmas movie and have fun making some Christmas Tags! She used the retired Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Punch.
She used the Oh What Fun stamp set and the retired Snowflake punch.
She used the Bird Builder Punch, the Corner Rounder Punch, and the Merry Everything stamp set.
She used the Oh What Fun stamp set, the retired Labels Framelits, and a circle punch.

This video shows you how to make a Mat to go under your Note Tag Punch sentiment to finish the Festive Flower Poinsettia Card from last week. This technique can be used with any punch and a variety of Framelits if they don’t have the Mat width you want.
TIPS: Try this technique with a variety of Punches and Framelits.
1. Stamp & punch out your sentiment. 2. Punch out TWO Real Red card stock Note Tag Punch images. Cut one horizontally in half and the other vertically in half. 3. Position the cut halves to decide if you want to layer the horizontal or vertical layers first. 4. Cover the back of your sentiment punch with Snail. Position the layers in the order you decided in Step 3. 5. Add to your card with Dimensionals.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Mint Macaron card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Pink Pirouette Layer at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Attach to card base. 3.

Layer together with Dimensionals. Thread your White Baker’s Twine through the button holes and tie a bow. Attach button to flower with 2 Glue Dots. 5. Cut out two leaves using the Flower Fair Framelits, your Big Shot, and Wild Wasabi card stock. (Or just use scissors to cut your leaves.) Attach your leaves to the bottom of the 1-3/4″ Circle using Glue Dots, Snail, or Fast Fuse. Attach Dimensionals to the Bottom of the Flower and Glue Dots to the tips of the leaves. 6. Attach your Jute Ribbon to your card front with Glue Dots. I put one one each corner at the ends. Now attach your Flower and leaves in the desired position. 7. Stamp your sentiment on Whisper White card stock with Rose Red ink. Punch out with the Washi Label punch. Attach to the ribbon with Dimensionals. 8. Send this flower card to brighten someone’s day!
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Crushed Curry card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″/ Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Daffodil Delight card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through your Big Shot with the NEW larger Fluttering embossing folder. Attach to your card base. 3. Cut your Whisper White Tag at 1-3/4″ wide by at least 5-1/2″ long. Stamp your sentiment in Delightful Dijon ink. I stamped mine close to the lower edge and centered it on the tag. I then punched the top end using the Scallop Topper Punch, and the other end with the Banner Triple Punch. OPTION: You can punch the ends first, then do the stamping. Doing this will make it easier to get your sentiment stamped in the center. This is what I will encourage my ladies at class to do. 4. Thread about 6″ of Baker’s Twine through the Tag hole. 5. Punch out a large and small butterfly from Gold Glimmer Paper. Attach with Glue Dots in the desired positions. 6. You are finished and ready to send it to an Awesome someone.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Garden Green card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Whisper White card stock at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Take your scissors (scissors with a longer blade were easier for me) and cut wavy lines along the edges. The edges do not have to be even. 3. Make sure and stamp on top of your Stampin’ Pierce Mat for good results. Stamp your Tree Leaves in Garden Green ink on your Whisper White card front towards the top, leaving about a 3/8″ border at the top of the card stock. 4. Stamp your Tree Trunk in Chocolate Chip over the Tree Leaves. 5. Stamp your Grass in Garden Green at the bottom of your Tree Trunk. 6. You could just stamp your sentiment under your grass in Chocolate Chip ink if you want. OR if you mess up……. Stamp your sentiment in Chocolate Chip on a piece of 1/2″ high x 4-1/4″ long Whisper White card stock. Trim with the Banner Triple Punch. Cut your Garden Green Banner at 1″ x 4-1/4″. Trim with the Banner Triple Punch. Layer the Banners with Dimensionals and attach to your card front. TIP: You might want to make a pencil line where you want the tips (longest ends) of your Banners to end. Just make sure to punch off your line. Otherwise, there is a lot of guesswork and wasted paper. 7. Attach your card front to your card base. I used lots of half Dimensionals. 8. Send it to someone and bring a smile to their day when they get their mail.
