Moxie Fab Fun

It's a Moxie Fab fun week at my house with all the fun Holiday inspired challenges. First up is a card for the Clean and Graphic look. I used Papertrey Ink's Vintage Picnic set, one of all time favorite stamp sets. Patterned paper is K & Company, Brenda Walton, CS is Papertrey Ink. Green hot fix pearls add a little shimmer. I took the close-up to show the shimmer in the picnic basket (Papertrey Ink Silver Shimmer Cardstock) and the 'snowflaked' envelopes.

Card for the Coach

This is for my son and neice's baseball coach. All the kids will sign it for him. At the beginning of the season there was no coach so they asked for parent volunteers. Cory stepped up to the plate {sorry!} and he has been so great. When I was thinking of ideas I was thinking of making a run to the LSS for baseball PP. Then I thought, WWND? {what would Nichole do?} LOL. She'd get out Star Prints. So here is a card using star prints and Cosmo Crickett The Boyfriend pp. I also did Nichole's idea of notching the edges of the paper for the twine to stay put. The inside says Thank You Coach, also from Star Prints.
Now, when I showed this to my mom today I said I have a heck of a time making guy cards. She said "well it doesn't really look like a guy card but it's very nice". So now I'm hoping it's "guy" enough.

Caardvarks Challenge - My Stamp Box

This is for the caardvarks challenge using the signature colors of My Stamp Box company. This is a pure Papertrey Ink card using Everyday Button Bits, pp is Black and White Basics. Mats were cut with Spellbinder dies. The buttons were Vintage Cream , airbrushed with RV09 to match my Raspberry Fizz cardstock.

Hero Arts Card

The challenge was to make a card and mail it to someone. I originally left the stamped "hello" as a circle and matted it but then decided to place in this neat frame. It's for my friend that lives in Madrid. I thought the scrolly metal kinda of looks like Spain. PP is CC The Boyfriend, CS is all Papertrey. Kraft cardstock was stamped with polka dot basics in Vintage Cream ink. Image was stamped in black on Summer Sunrise cardstock. I made "guy" cards in one day - a record for me!
