fun & cute christmas!

I decided to do at least 1 Moxie Fab challenge this time around -- a fun & cute Christmas card. I have a hard time doing a card in just 1 category (fun & cute, graphic, shabby chic, vintage, classy, elegant, etc), so this may have some other elements in it as well, but I hope you like it!


enjoy!

Paper: Vintage Cream cardstock (Papertrey Ink), All Fall paper line (Fancy Pants)
Buttons: Spring Moss, Berry Sorbet, Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink)
Ribbon, etc: Vintage Cream Topnotch Twill (Papertrey Ink), Hemp (Fashion Cord)
Stamps: Mega Mixed Messages, Everyday Button Bits (Papertrey Ink) -- this is both sentiments, Mindy's Flowers (Stampology) -- this is where I got the flourishes on the tag, a stamp set I don't know the name of (Martha Stewart) -- this stamp set is where I got all of the snowflakes)
Inks: Martha Stewart, Memento Rich Cocoa

A SWEET Birthday!!

It's time for another Pile it On challenge! This week's theme is a birthday card, which is always something you need, right? The sponsor is Hambo Stamps this week and I had fun with this cupcake digital stamp. It started out quite differently, but I did a little playing on photoshop and ended up with this great cupcake paper :) -- I'm not going to share my secrets and how-to's for that, but I love that I was able to do so much on the computer and then print it into my own custom paper!


I combined a couple of different papertrey stamps for the sentiment on the inside of the card.


And of course, I made this card for some other challenges as well, so I could "pile it on." Here's what I did:

Details:

Paper: Papertrey Ink - Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream
Ribbon: Papertrey Ink - Dark Chocolate Grossgrain
Stamps: Digital Raining Cupcakes Stamp by Hambo Stamps, "Everyday Button Bits" and "Birthday Basics" by Papertrey Ink
Ink: Martha Stewart, Memento - Rich Cocoa, Canon Printer Ink :P
Bling: self-adhesive rhinestones from the stash

with appreciation

Hello everyone! It's time for a new card. I've been doing a lot of graphic design lately and not a ton of card making, but here's something I got done. This is for Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge#16. Here are the colors she chose for the challenge. I have to admit that I forgot about the kraft color, but it gives a nice finished look, I'd say.


If you have never looked at Dawn's blog, it's worth taking a look! She has had over 100 cards published in magazines in the past year and I really like her style. I blame her for the polka dot kick I'm on :) For the orange paper, I just creased it a few times and inked it . The "with appreciation" tag is just a clear embossed pattern by Heather Bailey, who I love! The clear embossing over the vintage cream paper gives a really elegant effect, I think (perfect for a wedding card, right?). Anyway, enjoy!




Details:

Paper: Papertrey Ink Cardstock in Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, and Classic Kraft; Fancy Pants orange w/polka dots from the All Fall line, American Craft (the leaf was cut out of American Craft paper)
Stamps: Mega Mixed Messages (Papertrey Ink), Floral Border Stamps by Heather Bailey (Stampology)
Ribbbon: Dark Chocolate by Papertrey Ink
Ink, etc: Versamark, Memento Rich Cocoa, Clear Filigree fine embossing powder, Martha Stewart glitter
