The Fox Bundle (I used the punch to make the flower & the leaf stamp from this set to decorate the edge of the circle).
Sweet Sugarplum ink (for stamping the leaves onto the small vanilla circle)
Piercing tools (retired) - if you don't have these, you can always add interest by adding more layers, stamping or inking the edges, adding fun die-cut or punched shapes, or other elements, like doilies. The point is just to add some interesting details.

Making Flowers from Foxes - DOstamper STARS Challenge - DSC #194 starring the Fox Builder Punch
This week's challenge was to use a NEW stamp - so something that was new to this year's annual catalog or something from the yet-to-be-released-to-the-public Holiday Catalog. So far, I only have one new punch, the Fox Builder punch,...so guess who got out to play? Yup, this little critter. I am going to have soooo much fun with this little guy!
So, about this project...one of the reasons I love to buy (and keep) the punches is because you never know what sort of punch art you can create with them. There are tons of ideas on Pinterest and online galleries, so I have never regretted buying and saving these tools. Today I wanted to look at the punch a little differently...I have seens TONS of cute cards already using the fox as a fox, cat, skunk, squirrel and other critters. But I wanted to challenge myself to think outside the box. Low and behold, I noticed that part of the punch layered to create a pretty little flower.
What are some of your favorite "outside-the-box" uses for Stampin' Up! punches?
Here's what the Fox Builder punch looks like!
And here's how I punched out the flower parts - it took 4 pieces to make this flower.
To make this, you’ll need:
