I think that the new Hey, Foxy stamps, Hey, Foxy Dies & Hey, Foxy Word Dies are so adorable!  I've had so much fun making all kinds of combinations of STITCHED foxes the past few weeks!  For this first card I wanted to go a little bit more masculine and was inspired by this pin on Pinterest.  

To start my card I cut the front out with the COOL new Cover Up Die: Pointelle.  Oh my word!! It is so beautiful!  I loved playing with this die which is unlike anything I've seen on the market!

 After stamping the face features & cutting the various fox pieces out and attaching them how I wanted, I added a few mint details to him using gel pens.  Then I attached the fox to the cardfront on top of one of the Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles strips.  I die cut the "hey" from the Hey, Foxy Word dies.  I wanted to add a little "foliage" to ground the fox and so I cut some funky leaves from the Frames & Flowers die set.

I wanted to create a cool background that you'd see though the holes in the front of the card from the die, so I used Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles to create a striped background on the inside of the card. I also used one of the Hey, Foxy Word dies inside & stamped one of the sentiments from the Hey, Foxy Stamp set to finish it off.

One last fox card to share with you today because I just couldn't resist.  I wanted to show you how C.U.T.E. this foxy lady could be using patterned paper!   This was the very first fox I die cut (and I have die cut quite a few already let me tell you!) when I got my dies!  I think she looks adorable with a little flashy pattern and a gold sparkly tail!  

Did you notice that the tail can go on either the right or left side of the fox?  I love that little detail!  For this fox, I chose to stamp a different set of eyes which makes the fox look so different than in the first card. I also softened the face up by stamping in a brown ink and giving her a pink nose.

I created the blue background by die cutting one of the Stitched Mats: Side Stitched Rectangles out.  I attached the fox to the blue patterned paper and then used one of the Border Builders dies to create the bush/grass for the fox to hide behind.  

The "hello" sentiment", from the Hey, Foxy stamp set, was heat embossed in white.  I cut the "Foxy", from the Hey, Foxy Word Die set from gold cardstock.

Isn't this a fun grouping of products?  :)
