Today’s post is part of a fun blog hop to celebrate the new One Of A Kind release from Simon Says Stamp. More on the hop below but lets take a quick review of what’s included in the One Of A Kind release. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.

ONE OF A KIND RELEASE


Such a range of styles that there is something for everyone from classic florals to summery lollies and fruits and critters reminiscent of childhood books. 

PICTURE BOOK FOX

I chose the Picture Book Fox for today’s all dies post (not a stamp in sight!). I love the clean graphic lines of both the Fox and the Bear but as I was a redhead (weirdly I went brown in my 30s) and am the mum to a redhead too then I have an affinity with foxes and their gorgeous colourful fur. The style of the Picture Book Fox, as the name suggests, took me straight back to classic children’s books and I decided my fox was going to sit in a boat.

I started by cutting the fox die three times, one each from Burnt Orange, Cotton Candy and White card. I glued the pieces on to a scrap of Burnt Orange card and trimmed any excess away. The final touch for this cute fox was a pair of wiggle eyes. I used the Ice Cream die to cut a boat from wood veneer and also trimmed a thin straight strip too to act as the mast. I added these and the fox with foam adhesive to a Fog card base.

I cut a triangle of Echo Park paper from the July Card Kit for the sail and an extra little triangle for the flag, again adding these with foam adhesive. To set the scene I used the new 3 Sided Scallop die to cut some big patterned paper waves and added these with a double layer of foam adhesive. I also cut a white cloud using one of the Cloudy Skies dies. To finish I added the fabulous Big Day die cut from Soft Navy card and glued to the bottom of the waves.
