Hello Foxy

Products used:
Hello Foxy rubber stamp set
Gecko microfine glitter
Clear Detail embossing powder
Crafter's Companion embossing folder (Leaf Vein)
Tonic Studios die (Ribbon and Bows Layering die set)
Lawn Fawn die (Magic Slider die set)
Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Cornflower Blue; Spring Green)
Nuvo Hybrid Ink (Safari Green)
Super Adhesive Sheet
Marshmallows 3
Tim Holtz Stamp Platform
Tangerine Die Cutting Machine

This mixed media card using Hello Foxy from Sparkle N Sprinkle was really fun to make.  I started out by stamping my images using the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, coloring them with Copic markers, and fussy cutting each image out.  I really wanted to bring out the reds in their coats and add a bit of texture as well.  So I added VersaMark and heat set each image with Clear Detail embossing powder.

For the background, I die cut white cardstock using the Tonic Studios Ribbon and Bows layering die set.  After die cutting the cardstock, I ran it through my Tangerine die cutting machine (💟💟💟 this machine!!!) with a Crafter's Companion embossing folder (Leaf Vein) and added color to the raised portions with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Cornflower Blue and Spring Green) using a Marshmallow sponge.   

The next step was to die cut a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet using the same die as before but with out the cut-out insert.  I then adhered the dry embossed/moussed die cut on top of the Super Adhesive Sheet and covered the remaining adhesive with Gecko microfine glitter.

For the card base, I used a little trick as there wasn't a larger size die.  I die cut the green cardstock, cut it in half, and then adhered the pieces on either end to give the illusion of a complete mat.

The sentiment was stamped onto a negative piece from the Lawn Fawn Magic Color Slider die set.  I used the Safari Green Nuvo Hybrid Ink Pad to stamp my sentiment.  The ink stays "wet" long enough to emboss it, so I added Clear Detail embossing powder on top and heat set it.  I also inked up the edge of the heart with some Cornflower Blue Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

I think this set is so versatile. This card would be a great masculine valentine using non-traditional colors.  It would also be great for an anniversary or thank you card.
