Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger-Stripped Mittens

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!

I am posting this card for Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger sooner rather than later this week. :o) The stripped mittens are my inspiration to use a bunch (well, a few anyway) of my many scraps all over my desk. I used border punches from Martha Stewart and Fiscars to copy the colors on the mittens. I used the "Plaid Block" stamp by Impression Obsession in two different directions to make the last green stripe and stamped the "Joy" stamp from Mark's Finest Papers on top then glittered it with Stickles. Thank you for stopping by!

Moxie Fab - Thank You Card Challenge

Well I think the amount of Thank You cards I send out are definitely second to Birthday cards in my craft room. This is a card I had on 'stand by' for a while and just sent out to a dear friend who is always very thoughtful and doing things for me and so many others in her life.

My Card ~
Stamp: Hibiscus from See D's Tropicals
Ink: outlined in Chocolate brown by Stampabilities: colored with Decorative Chalks and yellow Stickles
Embellishments: White designer ribbon and the Heart Charm w/Thank You etched on it are from Joann's
Tools: Butterfly punch by Anna Griffin which I also cut out and put inside the card (only 3 cause I didn't want to annoy my friend when they fell on the floor as she opened the card :) I stamped the flower on the envelop with Soft Lilac ink from Memories Hero Arts

Moxie Fab - Congratullations Card Challenge

This is actually the third of five challenges in the Moxie Fab World week long celebration. We are to create a Congratulations card. It can be for a new baby, a new job, graduation, engagement, or moved into a new house. I made this card
Congratulating my friend Gail when her first Granddaughter was born.

There are no stamps or ink here, just textured white card base and pale pink card stock mat trimmed with Fiscars paper edger scissors. I adhered three dimensional stickers, glittery gingham squares and diamond embossed mats, tied with a pink satin ribbon around the pink paper and pinned on a lacy flower with a baby safety pin. The sentiment is computer generated.

Moxie Fab - All Occasion Card Challenge

This was the first of a week long Challenge at Moxie Fab World.

All occasion cards are those cards that encompass occasions that don't fit anywhere else ~ missing you, hello, friendship, encouragement, thinking of you, sympathy, blank, etc.

I find Sympathy cards one of the most difficult to create, but usually enlist one of my many 'flower' stamps to help out here. Also, my card will always have a Clean and Simple style and I try for elegant and pastel colors. This card seems to represent what I will create for these sad occasions.

My Card~
Cardstock: White base card is from Georgia Pacific, off to the right of the card face is embossed
Stamp: Hydrangea is from Anna Griffin
Ink: the image was stamped on white paper with Chocolate Brown from Stampabilities and colored in with Decorative Chalks then it was cut out and set on the card with Pop Dots for a 3-D effect
Embellishments: Sheer Lavender ribbon from Joann's
If you click on the photo you will see more details. Thank you so much for stopping by this evening.
