Moxie Fab Challenges

I've been racking up the projects this week getting ready for my Open House, but I did manage to squeeze in two of the daily challenges over at Moxie Fab for their week-long celebration of Card Ideas for Paper Crafters! It's a new special edition from those folks at PaperCrafts magazine, and I love me some PaperCrafts!  I love the second card sketch so much, we're making it at the Open house now - such cute sketches! The challenges run through 9/19, so hop out there and play along!

The first challenge I created this week was for the Square sketch challenge. I used one of our cute Clear card bases and Roxie papers. You have to finagle the pieces a bit when working with a clear card so the adhesives won't show - I can't stand it when the adhesive shows! I hid the second half of the sentiment for the card on the inside under the flower, so you get a little surprise when you open us the card out.

I used the new Hooray Bouquet stamp set that matched perfectly with the new Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. It was so nice to just be able to stamp the flower down and not fussy cut! And look at that adorable spiral center - I know we can make those by handcutting the flower, but it is so much easier and tidier to make when it's cut out for you. Hooray Bouquet indeed! 

The second challenge sketch (Horizontal Sketch Card) made me giggle with delight. It's so clean and simple, but there's so many possibilities! I filled my squares with a bit of that pretty rose filled Roxie Paper. Then I stamped the Bicycle from this month's special Pair-A-Phrase stamp set and trimmed out just the basket. I added one of our pretty Pink Collection Buttons and some waxy flax and now I've got a hot air balloon! A little sparkle went onto the flower on my basket, and then I pierced around the outside of the card with my amazing new Piercing Ruler for a bit of extra texture.

We are SO making this one on Saturday along with 2 other projects, so if you didn't RSVP already, make sure you come early to get a hands-on kit!  See you tomorrow!
