Moxie Fab- Card Style -Clean & Graphic

This is my entry for Moxie Fab's Card Syle ~ Clean & Graphic. Well, this might NOT be my 'style' of card cause I can't seem to leave well enough alone ;o) I just want to keep adding stuff. I am sure THAT has some deep rooted meaning (:-)

Click on the photos for more detailed images. I am working on my notebook computer and feel like I am going blind --this screen is way tiny compared to my desktop.

Anywho, my card has only one stamped image on it--it's a bird in a gilded cage that I picked up in Michael's G Studio stamp bin. I inked it with Ranger's Embossing Ink and used gold embossing power. The background is a script stamp from Hero Arts. The musical notes are Cuttlebug's A2 folder and the giga Marvy oval punch frames the cage. The music note is a brad from Making Memories.
The inside sentiment was generated by my computer.
Thank you so much for stopping by~I love hearing from you and really appreciate your comments.

Moxie Fab - Card Style Week - Fun & Cute

There's another challenge over at Moxie Fab World~stop by this week and join in the great challenges all week long!!! The new issue of Card Style Magazine is out and Cath is helping us find our "Style". Really?
Well, I am not sure what my style of card making is but I couldn't resist posting this Thank You card with this sweet bear holding a sunflower~HOW CUTE IS HE?

Bought this stamp at a yard sale and it doesn not have any markings on it :( sorry, I don't know who made it, anybody recognize him?

I inked him up with Stampabilities Chocolate Brown and colored him in with Brown chalk, the sunflower is also colored in with pencil and Yellow chalk with Green chalked leaves--there are Copper Stickles in the center. The Border Punch is 'Hearts' by Fiscars and the sentiment is computer generated.

I may try to get another card posted before the deadline :o? It is FUN to be CUTE!

Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger-Poppin'Off the Page

Weeeell, I was not too sure about joining this week's Moxie Tuesday Trigger~these colors are way out of my comfort zone! But after playing around with these very bright Poppin' colors,
I decided to give it a go and liked the results.

I started out thinking this would be a Birthday card for one of the kiddies in the family...but I thought it looked a little Psychedelic Trippin' and may be better suited for a Child of the 60's instead. So, I made a second attempt using buttons, which I think softened the look a tad...hmm, maybe not...I'm still Trippin' :):):)

My Card~
