Enjoy Life

Here is my contribution to the Fun with Floss challenge on the Moxie Fab Blog.

I just love all the "My Cute Stamps"  birdcages. I paper pieced this one with some Jenni Bowlin Homespun mini paper and colored the top and bottom accents with a copic marker. The cage 'wires' were stitched with a variegated floss. I used my Tim Holtz ruler with piercing holes to line up the holes first. {that little ruler is one of my most-used tools}. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Star Prints set.

Best Wishes

I love to  see a (1) in my Google Reader from Lilybean {Melissa Phillips}. Her projects are so fun to see. The top card is her card from the Papertrey Ink gallery featuring Damask Designs. For my card I stamped a Turning a New Leaf vine onto vintage sheet music with Sweet Blush ink. The flower is made from Sweet Blush Grosgrain ribbon. I added some tiny green rhinestones to some of the music notes. Double click for a closer view.The sentiment and swirls are form Giga Guidelines. Thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Wishes

Here is my card for Melissa Phillip's most recent  inspiration photo. I love these colors together. If you look very closely at the rose in her photo it has a very subtle pink tint to it. I made this rose with Papertrey Ink cream satin ribbon then airbrushed it a little with a pink Copic marker to try to mimic the flower. The Aqua Mist paper was stamped with Damask Designs stamp set using Fresh Snow ink. The sentiment is from Giga Guidelines.

Miss YOU - CPS 153

This card is for CPS 153 and is based on Melissa Phillip's photo inspiration shown above. I love this combination of colors and textures. CPS is sponsored this week by my favorite stamp company, Papertrey Ink, and the inspiration is from my favorite card designer so this was a very fun card to make. Thanks for stopping by.

Moxie Fab Taintor-Tude Challenge

Ive had so much fun looking at everyone's cards. Some of the old images are just so darling. I couldn't resist using a sassy martini-sippin' nurse for my card. {thanks Elaine for the image}. She's had a rough shift but she's still smiling.
