FOXY FRIENDS STAMPIN UP FOR GDP047 - Theme Nautical

August 01, 2016

Have you ever stamped a card in extreme conditions? or in a place you were supposed to do something else? Well, I bet you do if you are a stubborn stamper as I am. 

And as I didn't want to miss out the Nautical Themed Challenge launched on Global Design Project today my entry was partially made in a squash court while my husband was playing a match.

I was keen to use the images of Baby Bear stamp set or  Foxy Friends for this project  and I also had in mind adding a positive sentiment or quote about the beach or  the sea such as: "seas the day",  "life's a beach".. etc using  Labeler Alphabet stamp set.

 Below a picture of  my first attempt to do this.



Sooo many things I could do with this tools but I did my best just  to brought you up  the raw idea. 

Do you notice that the foxy got a cast in the right leg? Perhaps you don't. And perhaps  I failed trying to make the foxy looks slightly sick.

Cardstock: 
  • Thick whisper white card stock for the card base.

The story behind this card

After a fun frenzy week with my family  and an even more busy weekend I  had to stamp my card  on extreme conditions. I  only  used my mini misti  as a portable table.

All quiet calm in the picture below ...


But the true is   that   a squash court  at  the evening is not the right place to craft.  It is a very noisy place and well Emma ( my toddler)  was around wanting to play  so I stamped letter by letter each time I could knowing that I couldn't do this when arriving at home as my hubby have plans to watch a movie and also get some snacks done. Thanks God, Harris was happily sleeping in his pushchair and when we get home Emma went straight away to her bed.

I wrongly thought that because my hubby is in holiday I'll have more time for crafting but no... however I'm happy to spend time with him and my children. They are a blessing in my life as well  is Stampin' Up! All together fill my life with joy :).

Thanks for stopping by and do not hesitate to  leave a comment. I would love to hear form you!

  2. Very clever Bibi, loved the play on words! And yes to answer your question, I did notice that the bear had an injured leg, so you succeeded in conveying that he was poorly. Bravo to you for stamping on the go, you are a true craftoholic! Have a great week. Cheers Donna Z :)
