TGF Super Secret Stamp Club #007

Hi everyone! It's here! My very first stamp since joining
The Greeting Farm's Super Secret Stamp Club subscription.
What's that? Well it's a 3-month online subscription where they mail you a "mystery" stamp 1-5 months before it's scheduled to be released as an exclusive first look.
You get these stamps for $8 a piece as opposed to the regular $12! 
For more info on this SSSC click here.
The first one I received is absolutely adorable!
 Isn't he just too stinkin' cute?! I just love him!
This stamp is called "Puppy Love"-SSSC no.007
I don't have many boy stamps so this was a fabulous suprise!
 I'm very happy with how his hair turned out as well. I was a little worried with the side whip, but I think it came out fine. And this little pupperoo just called for a brown spot over his eye for personality.
I coordinated the circles into the inside of the card as well. The circles was inspired by Kristina Werner's July Mail Call theme. You can find her here.
Hope you all enjoy!

Lawn Fawn Into Tuesday!

Phew! Birthday madness is over with! 
The Maleficent party went really well, I had a lot of fun creating stuff for it.
Now back to CARDS!!! 
I got to break out my Lawn Fawn Into the Woods stamp set for this one.
 This fox is by far my favorite critter from this set. 
I nestled him inside the cut out circle, created my own pattern background on the desert storm cardstock using SSS Khaki ink and the little leaf from the set.
 As you can see here my embossing got really messy this time, which I haven't really had an issue with in a long time so I'm not quite sure what happened there. 

I mounted the wood pattern paper directly to the green cardstock and die cut a circle from the top center.
Then I popped the whole panel up on dimensionals.
I don't know if I really colored him accurately like a fox but I do love how he turned out. The blending came out better than I anticipated since using colors that didn't really blend well together.
Well that is the card for today. I just got my new Erin Condren Life Planner in the mail today!
 Eeeek! I'm in love! Going to plan out a lot more time for crafting and blogging!
