Monday {ippity} Hop

It is a Moxie Fab {ippity} Hop. I have a few cards to share with you using the versatile {ippity} Stamps and done for the Moxie Fab World Challenges. Please stop by at the {ippity} blog for complete list of participants.

1) This is the card that I did for the Moxie Fab World Offset Scallop Gallop Challenge,

I used the Fishy Philosophy set from {ippity} for this card.

I stamped the Coral Images using Ranger DI - Shabby Shutters on Light blue CS. Then I layered Different blue scallop borders. Sponged the edge of the last blue border with some more Shabby Shutters Ink. Then I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black. A few fish cut out and popped up on foam dots completed the card,

2) This second card is done for Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger - Not Your Square Granny Squares and also for the Jolly Holiday Greeting cards challenge,

I punched out these Hexagonal shapes and adhered them in a line and added some pizzaz with the EK Success Snow flakes border punch. The sentiment is from {ippity} Season Of Joy Set.

3)Last but not least, I did this tag for the Moxie Fab World - The All Wrapped up challenge.

I used a Ranger Tag, and distressed it with Ranger DI - Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Olive and Dusty Concord and then I stamped the two snowflake images from {ippity} Season of Joy in Ranger DI -Barn Door and Stormy Sky. I added a piece of Grunge board that I painted with some Red Pepper Acrylic Ink.

I stamped the frame from {ippity} Season of Joy and cut it out by hand - as I do not have the companion nestabilities. But it was very easy to cut it out by hand and the sentiment stamped in the frame completed the tag.

Card Patterns Sketch #82

I was browsing through some blogs and saw the Card Patterns Sketch #82 and it was perfect for a anniversary card that I needed to create.

So here is my card using the sketch,

I did this card for one of my friend whose wife loves teapots and it was their 31st Anniversary. I really like how this card turned out.

I used a Doily and used the Teapot image from PTI Tea for Two set. I really loved this sentiment - it is so versatile. I cut out the teapot using the PTI Die and then stamped the image using PTI Dark Brown Ink. Some pearls completed the card.

OTWC25 - Pink Wild Flowers

I really loved the color combination this time from Off The Wall Craftiness Challenge #25 and it just so happened that I had seen this gorgeous pink wildflowers card from Theresa Momber, so I had to give it a try.

I stamped the big image from GKD Wild At Heart set in Memento Angel Pink ink and then did a few strokes with Memento Rose Bud Marker directly on the stamp and then stamped it on white CS and then I trimmed it, mounted it on Grey CS.

I stamped the flower using Memento Rose Bud Ink and then cut it out and popped it up. I loved the sentiment that is part of Wild at Heart set. So cute.

Here is my Layout using both her sketch and 5 products challenge.

I used Ranger DI - Shabby shutters and inked around the edge of the kraft page. I love to do this with Kraft Base.

These are some old pictures of my brother and myself. My mom had scanned these and sent them to me, so this layout was perfect for these pictures. I used a tag as a mat for these pictures.

Masculine Card - Copic Challenge

I was browsing through some Copic sites and ended up at Copic Oz Challenge Site. They have a challenge once a month, which works great for me. Their challenge was to create a masculine card - All About Men. I used Theresa Momber's Farm Life set - Stamped this barn image and colored it with copics. I was totally Inspired by this card of Theresa using the same set.

I am always so impressed by Theresa's cards and how beautiful they are. So this is my first attempt at her Sponging technique and it is not the best, but still pretty good. :) I have to just create more to get better at it.

Inspired Crafters - September Scrapbook page challenge

Hello Friends,

My dear friend Chris has posted a wonderful sketch for this months challenge over on the Inspired Crafters blog! We would love you to play along with us. Here is what I came up with for the sketch,

These are series of photos that I took of my Friend's Daughter. She was on a quest to collect these bright looking sugar substitute packets. And she was doing this "hurrah" thing by raising her hands. I felt that these pictures were perfect for this sketch. I was inspired by the colors and patterns in her dress for the papers that I chose for this layout. I really love how this turned out.

Here is the sketch from Scrapbook challenges that Chris used for this Month's Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by. Hoping that you can stop by at Inspired Crafters and create a page(or two) of your own.

VERVE Birthday Wishes

I created this card for the Week2 sketch of September Viva La Verve Challenge and for the VERVE August Release Parade Day - Something Old and something New.

The inspiration for the week 2 sketch was Anthropologie Site. I chose this half apron as my inspiration and there were several medallion type curtains that inspired the use of this frame.
