Tuesday Trigger: Farm Fresh

OK, I’m going to try my hand at a Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger. When I saw this trigger I knew it was the one to do. And here is my card:I was a huge fan of Tinkering Ink papers and the colors in the trigger are the same colors that are in their Botanical Bliss line. Yes, I am hoarding my Tinkering Ink papers. 8^) For this card I used Tinkering Ink Petite Patterned pad Botanical Bliss, Hero Arts’ “Wish You Were Here,” Technique Tuesday’s “Shadows, Rings, and Little Things,” Stampendous’ “Dot Sparkles Gold” and Autumn Leaves RubOns. I also used Tim Holtz Alterations On the Edge “Scrollwork.” I hope you’ll stop by the Moxie Fab World and try the Tuesday Trigger yourself.

Just Shine

I have so many people who add a little brightness to my life that I needed some cards that could be used for everything, these work. I used Unity’s “Shine On” stamps by Lisa Hetrick. I love these little lamps! I really like the paper on these cards but I have no idea who it’s by as I have had it for quite a while. When making a set of cards I like to use two sided papers like this one. I stamped each lamp twice and cut out one shade to pop up with foam tape to add some dimension. I then colored (color pencils, I like how they give a "fabric" texture to the shades) the shades with blues and greens and used some bling that I had in my stash. Each envelope also has a lamp stamped on it that matches the lamp on the card. A simple card with lots of fun. Ok, I have to say it…now go let your creativity shine. lol

A Sweet Little Book

This little book is so easy to make! Tim Holtz calls it the “W” book and that was a big help when I was learning to make them. This was the very first one I ever made and now I’m addicted to them. Lol! I have made a few changes in how I make them now, but they still make me happy every time I make one. To make one 3”x3” book I use one 12”x12” piece of paper, Tim Holtz tissue tape, a glue stick and embellishments. It’s a quick, easy, and fun mini book. I’ll put one of the newer ones on here soon.
