Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger-Pahala Halter from Anthropologie

Haven't joined in the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger in weeks for some reason or another, but I have a few Hibiscus Flower stamps (which I love) and I really like Red, Black, White and Yellow together~ especially for masculine cards. This card is rather 'plain' for me, I kept trying to add different elements or layers :^P But in the end decided to go the Clean and Simple route.
You can click on the card for a more detailed image.

My Card~
Card Stock: White base card is Georgia Pacific; Red cards stock is from a DCWV Mat Stack
Stamp: Hibiscus from See D's 'Tropicals' clear stamps; HB sentiment is See D's also I think(?)
Ink: The flower and sentiment is stamped with Archival 'Jet Black' and the leaves are painted over with Shimmerz 'Green Olive' and 'Key Lime' ~ can you see the glittery sheen? I added a little more glitter with Stickles on the yellow stybus of my hibiscus ; I used a fine point marker pen to hand draw the black frame

I first stamped the flower onto the white card front, then stamped it onto red card stock and onto yellow. Cut out each of the flower parts and placed on top of each other with pop dots for dimension.


  1. Hi Helen, I really like you take on the trigger. I think it was a good idea to keep it simple because the bouse is so busy. :) I am going to get back on these challenges soon. I'm gonna post later tonight but my computer is still not 100%. You are back and blazin'! : )

  2. Oh, I love your CAS card! I see you are from MI! I was born and raised in NSB till I married. Florida will always be home for me! :)
