OWH Sticker and Sketch Challenge

Operation Write Home

Sketch #65

All the talk was about using stickers as your focal point and build your card around that. I ran to my stash of unloved stickers and these jumped out. Well it is Easter time and all so I thought they have been in there soooo long it was about time to use them up!!! Really some stickers are show stoppers so this will be good way to just show case them.

On the card above I embossed the plum pudding (PTI) card stock with a argyle embossing plates, cut out the egg shapes with my nestabilities. The sentiment is from Stampin up, and the bling from Hero Arts.

A Millon Thanks

Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday

So I saw this picture and here is (what happened) the card I created. I drew on the yellows and reds. My blue is more Aqua than teal but it is what it is! Yes I decided to to off center the flower just because it really did look better there ( I mean really is anyone going to tell me the truth?) OK so there is random .org.

Gift Card Holder - Moxie Fab Challenge

Gift Card holder Challenge - Moxie Fab

I made this holder/ card into a purse by just cutting the side edges in a diagonal. No template needed. I decorated the front in doilies by Basic Grey placed over papers from Sugar Rush also by Basic Grey. I added some sparkler button with some bling by Hero Arts. The sentiment is from PTI. I made the faux buckle from my nestabilities out of some gold paper.

On the inside I made a pocket out of vellum to place a gift card. I stamped on the outside a sentiment from Crafty Secrets Glamour Girls. It says "I want it all and I want it delivered".

I hope you enjoy the gift holder. At Moxie Fab blog they are picking the winners by random .org for that big issue of cards and gifts!

Moxie Fab "Food" Decor Challenge

I made a Label/ Card for my wine bottle. We bring bottles of wine when we come to someones house for dinner or party. What a better way than just a bag that will sit in a closet. I gold embossed this image from Hero Arts Artistic Grapes then cut it out. I stamped the sentiment from another Hero Arts set CL389 (lost the package for the name). I cut a label from my nest- abilities (Labels 21) then wrapped it around the bottle. I choose paper colors to blend in with the wine label there. She will be picking the winners by to win latest big card magazine!

Her inspiration photo had this piece of linen (dishtowel?) so light and airy and wanted some the feel for this card. I dry embossed the center image then chalked colored the rest in in all in some linen card stock from PTI. Placed it on Terracotta card stock, placed on some de- embossed white card stock. I used a tiny tag (PTI) stamped with the sentiment then clipped it up with tiny clothes pin.

Choo Choo!

Choo Choo Trains

I made some cute birthday card for little ones. Coloring is a bit of challenge for me, so I tried my hand at in the first card. I tried on my first attempt to use many colors and well it was let say frighting. So I ended up just coloring parts making it easier on the eye and keeping it with paper scheme. This focal point stamp is Toyland Train from Cornish Heritage Farms. All paper is from is from Basic Gray Oliver collection.

The second card focal image is one of the little pre made cardboard sticker images from the collection pack. I cut out all the buttons and trimmed them out various paper patterns then sewed some twine in.

Thanks for looking in.
