Inspired by Fashion Challenge

Another fun challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Cath gave us a Fashion Challenge and here is our inspiration photo.

And, my take on it.

This is such a classy jacket that I wanted to have the same feeling in my card.
I used a herringbone scrapbook paper from the Paper Studio and folded it into a 3D flower.
I added the dotted Swiss from the same collection. That beautiful pearl button comes from Prima. Then, I stamped the sentiment with stamps from Fiskars' Latte Love collection.
And as always, I encourage you to make a card too. Here's the link.


The Pot Pourri Challenge

    I made this card for the Get Inspired Pot Pourri Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. First things first. This is the inspiration photo Cath gave us to work with.

And, my take.

    The coffee cup in the inspiration photo drew my attention right away plus I love the colors of black and white together. They make even a simple card look elegant. I used Fiskars Latte Love stamps to create this card. I printed out a small "H" in French Script on my computer onto white paper then cut it to fit within the heart on the stamped image. I backed the images with a deep maroon because I thought the card needed just a touch of color and maroon always looks elegant. I have a friend who will love getting this card.
   And of course, the link in case you want to join us in the challenge.

Get Inspired by Home Decor Challenge

I made this card for the Get Inspired by Home Decor Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. First, here is the inspiration photo Cath gave us.

And, here's my take on it.

I love old maps so I was very inspired by this photo. I used this gorgeous African map cardstock from DCWV. Then, I punched different sized 'globes' of African prints. I used Hero Arts "Small Greeting" to say happy birthday. I can't wait to send this card to someone special. Thanks, Cath, for the great inspiration photo. Here's the link if you want to make your own card.



Writing News

   Just want to let you guys know that I have a story coming out in the Jan/Feb issue of Angels on Earth magazine. I'm really excited about the story. I'll remind you when it gets closer to time for it to come out.

   Also, I will have one of my cards in the May/June issue of Paper Crafts magazine. I can't show it to you yet. I'll get to post it once the magazine is out. Again, I'll remind you when the time gets closer.

   Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and find many things in your life to be thankful for.


Fashionable Stamping Challenge

  Coffee, cream and chocolate is the theme of  Challenge 7 on Fashional Stamping's blog. We had to use these colors in a card that includes stamping.  Here is my take and the link to the challenge if you want to play along.

   I used a large dogwood stamp from Anna Griffin and created the background with it using Versamark's watermark pad. The small dogwood stamp is from TPC Studio. I heat embossed the small images with ColorBox's copper pigment and clear embossing powder. Then I mounted them with mounting tape. I added a bit of broze shimmer ribbon behind the brown bow and strung some matching beads.
   Now here's the link if you want to make one for the challenge.
