The Catalog -Time To Get Busy!

I received my new SU! catalog order this week and was so excited!  I just love the new In Colors this year and there are so many great new items.  The catalog is redesigned and it looks fabulous. 

I'm ready to start stamping again :)

I'm joining the Sisters In Stamping this week in their Pick-A-Section of the IBC Catalog.  The new catalog is broken down into themed sections, but a little differently than before.  I love it!  I chose "A Little Foxy Suite - Cute Baby Critters" section to feature.

On my cards, I've used the Foxy Friends stamp set, the Fox Builder Punch, and A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack. 

Here are the two cards I created:

The first card I made is supposed to be a little fox.  Now that I'm looking at him, I should have stamped some paws  I might go back and do that :)  On this card, I used the items above and also used the new Layering Circle Framelits, the Banner Triple Punch, and my new favorite bling - Metallic Enamel Shapes (LOVE!) I pulled the cardstock colors from the DSP stack (Pool Party, Calypso Coral, and Smoky Slate)

The second card I made is of a raccoon.  I think these critters are especially cute except when they eat all of my suet that I leave out for the birds!  Again, I used the DSP stack for the top piece.  I then ran it and the Basic Black card piece through the Big Shot using the new Layering Oval Framelits.  The raccoon is stamped on the inside using Smoky Slate and Basic Black.  I used Pearl Basic Jewels for the eyes and nose.  I then punched out the butterfly with the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches and added the new 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon in Pool Party - love this ribbon!

I decided not to add any sentiment to these cards yet.  I will stamp the sentiment once I decide on the occasion and the who is to receive them :)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
