A little more Moxie Fab style action....

Yep- I have some more cards for the Moxie Fab card style week.  So, let's get right to it!

These next two cards are for the "Shabby & Vintage" Style Challenge at Moxie Fab.  This first one is also my card for CPS Sketch 175 this week!  Here is how Cath describes shabby & vintage...which is definitely NOT my strong style.  It is characterized by layering.  It is soft, utilizing ribbon, lace and techniques like inking and distressing.  I will admit...both of my cards are probably considered a "clean" version of the shabby style.
"Remembering" supplies: 
Cardstock: Prism
Paper/Chipboard: Prima
Paper Frill: Doodlebug Designs
Flowers: Prima
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Jewels: Glitz Designs
Glitter: DecoArt
Ink: Ranger Distress ink
Corner Rounder: EK Success

Instructions:  Fold cream cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of an aqua dot paper block, and adhere to the front of the card.  Ink a white strip of tiny scalloped paper flair, and adhere to the bottom of a pink paper strip.  Adhere the entire strip to the lower section of the card.  Layer two pieces of glittered chipboard to the left side of the paper strip, and accent with a jewel flourish.  Glitter an aqua flower and adhere to the top of the chipboard accent.  Add a strip of ribbon and bow to the top of the flower, and accent with two paper roses.   

This next card is still for the Shabby & Vintage style challenge, and it also uses Paulina's sketch for the Practicing Creativity Sketch Challenge. 
 "Enjoy Life" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: Prima & My Mind's Eye
Stamps/Ribbon: Renaissance by Design (Enjoy Life, Darling Damask sets) 
Ink: Tsukineko (Chalk: pixie dust) 
Flowers: Prima
Button: craft supply
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Twine: Darice Inc.
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Border Punch: Fiskars
Diecut Machine: Cricut Expression by Provo Craft
Diecut Cartridge: Storybook by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold white cardstock in half to make cardbase, and round the bottom corners.  Punch a border to pink houndstooth paper, and adhere to the top of an aqua dotted paper block.  Adhere the entire block to the front of the card.  Tie ribbon around the seam, and adhere a button to the bow using twine.  Stamp the damasks directly below the paper block, and accent with pearls.  Cut the scalloped oval at 2 1/2" from pink dotted paper using the Cricut  Expression and Storybook cartridge.  Adhere the scalloped oval to the upper right corner of the card.  Cut the regular oval at 2" from white cardstock.  Stamp the butterfly sentiment to it, and accent the left wing with pearls.  Adhere the oval on top of the scalloped one using dimensional adhesive.  Accent the leftover white space on the stamped oval with three paper flowers.  

These next two cards were done for the "Classy & Elegant" Style Challenge at Moxie Fab.  This first one is also based on Alice's sketch for the Practicing Creativity Sketch Challenge.  Here is Cath's description for Class & Elegant.  A shiny finish, sparkling embellishments, a rich color scheme, and sophisticated sentiment treatments are all part of the classy and elegant pedigree. Its look is regal, stunning, and dashing. And while its lines are clean, sweeping, and dramatic, it can also incorporate monochromatic color schemes with layered textures that awe and impress equally as well.   
 "On Your Wedding Day" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: Crafty Secrets & My Mind's Eye
Stamps/Ribbon: Papertrey Ink (YOF: Roses set) 
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: raven black, evergreen, magenta) 
Lace: Making Memories
Jewels: Kaiser Craft
Glitter: DecoArt
Colored Pencil: Heidi Swapp
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Border Punch: Fiskars
Diecut Machine: Cricut Expression by Provo Craft
Diecut Cartridge: Storybook by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold cream cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Punch a border to a pink dot paper strip, and adhere to the top of a black diamond paper block.  Adhere black lace around the seam.  Round the bottom corners of the block and adhere to the lower part of the card.  Cut the black cardstock label at 4" using the Cricut Expression and Storybook cartridge.  Cut the cream cardstock label at 3 3/4" and adhere on top of the black layer.  Stamp the rose and sentiment to the cream label, and color in the rose stem.  Stamp the rose to pink dotted paper, cut it out and cover in glitter.  Piece the cut rose to the stamped rose on the cream label, and accent with jewels.  Adhere the entire stamped label to the right side of the card using dimensional adhesive.  Tie a bow from green ribbon, and adhere right below the sentiment.    

This last card is still for the Classy & Elegant style, and it also uses the Waltzingmouse sketch #5...the second time using that sketch this week.  It is a goodie!  We had a wedding to attend last night, and this is the card that I made to go with their gift.  It matched the wrapping paper perfectly....tee hee!  Love it!
