Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger & SOTM Sneak Peek!

I've been meaning to hop on this Tuesday trigger all week - but Christmas Holiday Hoopla took a bit of precedence over my need to be in the stamp room. No time like the present, right before it expires to get a new Trigger tomorrow! This week's trigger is called Simply Stripes, and I simply love stripes! For this card I used the upcoming January Stamp of the Month (which, I know, is not available until January, but it was so perfect for what I wanted to do....). I used it to make a glowing ball to drop for this New Year's card!

I pulled the brown and blue tones from the Trigger to create my card.I stamped the big circle calendar image onto a 2 1/2" scallops circle cut on Cricut with my Art Philosophy Cartridge. I cut it on the Layer feature so the center was cut out. Then I layered it over a fancy Doily looking snowflake image I fussy cut out of some Wonderland paper I had left over from this workshop.

I created the striped background paper using 1/2" strips of Kraft CS sponged on the edges with Colonial White Pigment ink. Then I stamped one of the line stitch images from the SOTM in the same Colonial White pigment ink on the edges of the 1/2" strips and in between the strips I masked the centers of the 1/2" strips with post-it notes, then I over-stamped with the number grid in Twilight ink, and sponged it with my big sponge and more twilight ink.

The year numbers are stamped in Twilight Ink and fussy cut as well. Lots of Stardust Glitter Glitz gel and sparkles finished my sparkly New Year's Eve Ball.

Here's the actual Tuesday Trigger for my inspiration, from Moxie Fab World. There will be a new one tomorrow.  Be sure to check it out and play along - it's fun!

Very Cute! I was going to ask, What does it mean to fussy cut something?

Wendy Coffman said...

Fussy cut means to cut something detailed out along the edges. I like to use my CTMH microtip scissors, and move the paper around, not the scissors - more control. With things like Cricut you don't have to fussy cut as much any more...but it's still a handy skill

Another great card! Love the attention to detail!

Oh, ok! I had never heard it called that before. Thanks!
