Foxy Friends for September 2016 Hostess Club

Foxy Friends and the coordinating punch are so much fun to use, and my Hostess for this club's meeting, Sheila White, wanted to have a "Foxy" theme.  
The top card is a fun fold, and the bottom is a miniature tissue holder made with the Envelope Punch Board.  All the products I used coordinate with the A Little Foxy DSP Stack.
  • The base is a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Smoky Slate, scored at 2 3/4 & 5 1/2.
  • Next layer is a 5 1/4 x 4 piece and a 4 x 2 1/4 piece of Whisper White, and a 4 x 2 1/4 piece of Calypso Coral (front panel).
  • Next is a 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Calypso Coral, and two pieces of A Little Foxy DSP, cut at 3 3/4 x 2.
  • The thinner strip is 1 1/4 x 11 of Whisper White, scored at 2 3/4 & 5 1/2, and then a 1 x 11 piece of Calypso Coral, scored at 2 3/4 & 5 1/2. After I scored the Calypso Coral, I cut off 1/8" from each end.  The DSP is 3/4 x 6 and I cut this piece as I went along, or to suite me.
  • I stamped with tree trunk with Soft Suede ink, and cut it out with my paper snips.
  • I punched two balloons with the Balloon Bouquet Punch, one in Pool Party, and one in Daffodil Delight.  I stamped each one with Tuxedo Memento Black ink, and Petite Pairs stamp set. I made two bows with Calypso Coral Baker's Twine and glued them to the balloons with glue dots.
  • I stamped Let's Celebrate from one of my favorite birthday stamp sets, Confetti Celebration, with Tuxedo Memento Black ink.
  • The Pool Party circle was cut with the Layering Circle Framelits, and the Whisper White circle was punched with a 2" circle punch.
  • I stamped the fox on the Whisper White circle with Cajun Craze ink, and stamped a second fox, (mostly his head), and punched it out, so I could pop it up and give my little fox a 3-D effect.  
  • I stamped the foxes eyes, nose and legs with Tuxedo Memento black ink. 
  • I made the tissue box holder with my Envelope Punch Board, and followed the directions from The Crafty Owl, and Box Buster.  You can find her Box Buster Here.  I started with a 7 1/4 square piece of Calypso Coral card stock, and punched and scored at the 3 5/8" mark, and the 5" mark.  I rotated my card stock to the left, and punched and scored at each previous score line.  I continued until I had punched and scored on all four sides.  I then cut off one of the sides that had the short corner, at the first score line. This is kind of hard to explain, and if you have any questions, please feel free to email me at:, or if you have time, search YouTube for Stampin Up! Tissue Holder.
  • Remember to decorate your envelope, can't leave the house naked, right?
