Mixing Pattern Papers with Digital: Whimsy Stamp’s Autumn Fox

Mixing Pattern Papers with Digital: Whimsy Stamp's Autumn Fox

Hi my friends! I’m sharing another card design using the adorable Autumn Fox by Whimsy Stamps. I cannot get enough of him, this is my 4th time coloring him! You can check out the first time I used in a card project here. He’s a digital image that I purchased specifically because; (1) he’s just too cute and; (2) digital images are a great way to practice Copic coloring.

For my cards today, I paired my little fox with pattern papers all from Honey Bee Stamps and added a little black cardstock to the mix and I really think that added a “wow factor” to these cards! I love how they turned out. I also included stickers from Penny Black which I also love so much and have used before. Her images are stunning.

Now for my sentiment, I decided to use Waffle Flower Crafts “Autumn” stamp set. I inked it with Pinkfresh Studio’s “Doe” ink (my favorite brown color) on white cardstock and then distressed the edges with a blending brush. Then I trimmed it down to fit in the upper corner of my cards. Layering pattern papers and mixing them with other elements is my jam!

If you’re wondering what Copic markers I used to color my fox, just click the link above to my 1st card that I made with him because I used the exact same colors.

In the top card, I die cut my fox with a heart circle die on pattern paper. The butterfly is a sticker from the Penny Black set. In the card below, I fussy cut my fox. You’ll notice my mistake in this card… I forgot to ground my fox so it looks like he’s floating in mid-air! Oh well… I didn’t even notice that till I was writing this post. I was going to add some grass for him to sit in but completely forgot! Hope you’ll overlook that! :O

Can I take a minute and talk about these stands?! I’m always looking for props and backdrops for photo taking and when I caught another cardmaker using stands like these to shoot her cards, I FELL IN LOVE! First off, I love white distressed wood and secondly these look so much like the cake 2-tiered tray in my kitchen. So, I went online looking for stands like this and some were incredibly expensive. You guys know I shop with a tight budget so I dug deeper and found these on Amazon in a 2-pack for $12.99! Now, the price may vary depending on when you see this post so keep that in mind.

These stands (risers) are 4″ x 4″ so they’re very small but just large enough for my A2 cards to sit on. I’ll have a link below if you’re interested in purchasing these for yourself. You’ll be seeing many more photos with my cards on them.
