I am so in love with the Perty & Flirty Tuesday Trigger photo this week from Moxie Fab World.
I would love to own that coat! When I first saw this picture I immediately thought of paper in the new crate paper pad I just got. I also thought of bees! I personally am deathly afraid of bees, but when I saw the shiny black buttons on the yellow coat, I just knew I wanted bees on my card. I think I’ll stick with bee images rather than the real thing!
I also paired the inspiration photo with a layout from Card Patterns Sketch 123.
Here is my card:
Patterned paper is from Crate Paper and My Mind’s Eye. I made a scalloped border in black and added light pink lace trim and blue wrinkly ribbon above it. I stamped a flower from Flourishes in red brick distress ink on paper rubbed with spun sugar distress ink. I sprinkled red glitter around the edges of the flower. Then I added the bees as the finishing touch.
Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend. Be blessed, kiesa
Moxie Fab World is having an awesome challenge all about stamping!
I’m still new to stamping, but I wanted to give it a go.
I used the colors from Summer Card Camp:
I stamped the bottom panel with a stamp from Skipping Stones Design and I embossed it in white. I die cut the bees and then used a technique that Jennifer McGuire taught at the Summer Card Camp called finger inking. I stamped my distress inks onto my kraft sheet, spritzed some water on them, and then used my finger tips to apply the ink to the butterflies. Once they were dry I stamped a Penny Black paisley stamp in frost white from colorbox. I stamped a hero arts sentiment in ginger. Then finished with some gems.
Thanks for looking. Be blessed, kiesa
Here is the color combo from Summer Card Camp that I used:
I must confess that I love to use these colors and have a tendency to use brown in most of my card!
Here is the card I made:

Here is the color combo this week:
And here is my card:
I embossed a Hero Arts stamp with brown embossing powder and then swiped a red brick distress stain across the paper. So bold!!! I stamped a Jenni Bowlin butterfly in ginger, which you can’t really tell, so then I took white paper and swiped the sides of it in the same ginger color. It looks like suede to me.
Thanks for looking. I’m sad that card camp is almost over. be blessed, kiesa
There is a new World challenge that’s going on over at Moxie Fab World that I just couldn’t resist. It’s all about beautiful borders!
Here is one of the examples that was provided:
It took me a long time to figure out what would be innovative, and I finally came up with making the card itself out of borders. I purposely didn’t look at anybody’s creations because I didn’t want to take anyone’s idea. I used four borders from Tim Coffey and adhered them together and then folder them in half and that was my card! They look really cool because they aren’t flush with each other and there is some open space in between each of them. Because the red, blue, and copper colors were so rich, I tried to make sure that all of my embellishments were light. I dusted the flower with copper perfect pearls and also used the perfect pearls to change the color of the brad that’s holding the flower together. I also edged the sentiment with the perfect pearls. I used a dictionary page for the leaves and inked them with some vintage photo distress ink. I added a little red butterfly bauble to the wrinkly ribbon and a red gem to the sentiment.
Please let me know what you think! Make sure you head on over to Moxie Fab World and give it a go!!! Be blessed, kiesa
Here is another card i quickly made for the summer Card Camp. I didn’t like the color combo at first, but I’m getting more comfortable the more I work with it.
The card is pretty shimmery, so I hope you can see the background stamp I used. It’s a Hero Arts/Basic Grey Dots and Pattern stamp (I think that’s the name). I also used a ton of distress inks because I love how vibrant you can make the colors with them.
I would love to hear what you think. Thanks for looking and have a great week. Be blessed, kiesa
I made another card for this week’s color combo:
I didn’t use the colors as summery, but more like fall. I tend to like warm colors more anyway, so I think that’s pretty much how I design my cards.
