Moxie Fabbin' It!!

February 28, 2011

Happy Monday, everyone!!  I can't believe that I haven't been able to sit down and write a blog post today until now, but I have just had other things going on.  But, now I do have some time...and I can proudly say that I am the Moxie Fabber of the Week!!  Head on over to the Moxie Fab blog if you would like to read my interview, and see some of my favorite cards.  Cath wrote the sweetest little note about me at the end of the post, and it definitely warmed my heart reading it.  Thanks so much, Cath....I feel completely blessed by what you wrote.

In keeping with the Moxie fab theme...I have a super fun card to share with you today!  I created it for my Stamper's Dream DT work, but also used some of the brand new papers from GCD Studios.  What does this have to do with Moxie Fab, you might be asking?  Well, Moxie Monday is all about the new "Funhouse" collection by GCD Studios, and they are giving the collection away!  So, be sure to check out that post at the Moxie Fab blog as well, if you haven't already!! I also used the Viva la Verge March 2011 Sketch #1 for my card...I just love how it turned out! Check it out:
"Good Times are Even Better..." supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (red) & Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper: GCD Studios (Funhouse: Candy Apple, Three Ring Circus, Trick Pony, Come One Come All) 
Stamps: JustRite Stampers (Friendship Nested Sentiments
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: magenta, Chalk: warm red) 
Pearls: Kaiser Craft 
Twine: Darice Inc. 
Glitter: DecoArt 
Diecut Machines: Cuttlebug & Cricut Expression by Provo Craft 
Diecut Cartridge:  Plantin Schoolbook by Provo Craft
Steel Dies: JustRite custom dies by Spellbinders (Nested Frame, Nested Sentiment sets) & Papertrey Ink (Ticket border)
Sewing Machine

Instructions:  Fold red cardstock in half to make card base.  Cut a vintage cream cardstock block slightly smaller than the card, zig-zag stitch along the edges, and adhere.  Cut three patterned paper strips to fit inside the cream block, and ink the edges.  Zig-zag stitch along the edges of each paper strip, and adhere to the front.  Diecut and emboss a floral paper block using the Cuttlebug & nested frame die, then adhere to the front.  Cut the strip of tickets from patterned paper using the Cuttlebug and ticket border die.  Tear off each end, sand the edges a little bit, and then adhere to the front.  Diecut the sentiment label from vintage cream cardstock using the Cuttlebug & nested label die.  Stamp the sentiment to it, and adhere to the front.  Diecut a star at 1.5" from orange patterned paper using the Cricut Expression & Plantin Sschoolbook cartridge.  Cover the star in glitter, then top with a twine bow and pink paper flower.  Adhere the star accent to the sentiment corner using foam adhesive.  Accent the other corner of the two paper flowers, and then add pearls to the sentiment label to finish. 

The only thing left that I need to do is let you know who won the Skipping Stones Design stamps from THIS POST last week.  Without further ado, here is the winner!! 
Congratulations, Terri!!  Please email your shipping information to jnllawson @ (sorry for the spaces, I don't want spam) and I will get it passed on to the SSD owner!!  Thank you so much for your lovely comments...I loved reading each and every one of them! 

Well, I better get going for now!  I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your day! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
~Lea L.
