Moxie Fab Team Meeting Card

How was your Thanksgiving? We had a wonderful feast, followed by lots of stamping fun this weekend at the Black Friday Holiday Hoopla! One of the projects I whipped up over the weekend is this fun 8 x 3 1/2 card using the new Rock the Block special stamp set. It's so adorable, with the paisley and the fab flowers! I have a lot more Rock the Block projects coming, plus a Rock the Block blog hop coming soon...See the blank blocks there in the background? Check back on the 20th to see what I'm doing with them!

I made this card for my team to make at our meeting Monday night. I wanted to make something for the Moxie Fab Pay It Forward Challenge, to make a card for World Hello Day, Sweetest Day, or National Day of Encouragement. It's not too late to play too - it's open until December 12th, and there are some cute projects to peruse out on their site! I used the Sketch #143 from Card Patterns blog.

The card is done in Tulip and Grey Wool Ink. I stamped paisley and flower images on Tulip cardstock tone on tone in Tulip ink. Then I used the Polka Dot background image on the Grey Wool cardstock, also tone on tone. I masked the card base to stamp the circle border down the side in Grey Wool ink. The LOVE sentiment is three layers of stamping, popped up with 3-D Foam tape for lots of dimension.

I also made some faux baker's twine using my Waxy Flax. I separated a strand of Cranberry Waxy Flax and twisted it with a full strand of White Waxy Flax. Then I tied my Red buttons on with the remaining strands of Cranberry Waxy Flax. I just love the new patterns in the button assortments.

I have more to share this week, as I've been busily working to get ready for our Holiday Bazaar booth at Mooberry Elementary School - see ya back here tomorrow!
