Fun and Formal Card

This week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab is this great photo:

The first thing that jumped out at me is that fun banner, but I just did a banner on my Fab Gift Tag, so I wanted to try something different.

I decided to start with the doily on the table, and then add in a fun mix of casual and formal elements, just like the fancy cake with the cute banner!  So here's my take:

The (fun!) orange card base is stamped with the (formal) banner from Mint Motif. The (formal) doily and rhinestones are accented with a (fun!) touch of baker's twine.

The cake looked like a wedding cake to me, so that's why I went with the Love sentiment.

I hope you like it! Thanks for looking!

Vintage girl collage

This collage started out as a canvas covered with book pages and patterned paper. I used purple fabric spray paint and a stencil cut from a paper doll book to add the shape of a vintage lady. I filled her in with sheet music and a map, plus a watercolor crayon for her hair.

The background has stamping, rub-ons, paint, marker and more patterned paper.

One Layer Birthday Card

This is a very quick birthday card with a background Hero Arts stamp in yellow, and a sentiment in orange, plus a little bit of bling!

This is actually a bright, happy card in real life and its a terrible picture. But I'm a terrible photographer with a terrible camera, so this is the best I can do! :)

Hexagon gift tag

I made this gift tag, along with my triangle tag, for a little bit of a change - to try something other than cards! This tag is inspired by the Hexagon challenge at Moxie Fab:

My tag uses My Mind's Eye kraft hexagon paper over SEI Field Notes pink paper. The sentiment is handwritten.

I cut out 2 of the hexagons and popped them up with foam tape:

Thanks for looking!

Fab Gift Tag

This little gift tag is inspired by the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger:

I usually make a card for this challenge, but today I wanted to try something a little different!

The paper and triangle stickers are SEI Field notes. The sentiment stamp is Unity, and the triangle stamp is hand cut.

Thanks for looking!

Simple Thinking of You Card

This clean & simple card uses a flash card style sentiment on cream cardstock, adhered with foam tape over 7gypsies Postale paper.  The stripes give it a candy-striper look to me, so I think I'd use this for a Get Well type of card.

The flashcard was made with a Mint Motif sentiment stamp and Inkadinkado alphabet, with a bit of distress ink around the edges. No idea where I got the ribbons! :)

This card is posted at CASual Fridays!

Slide Mount Art

This card uses a Slide Mount for the focal point, highlighting a star underneath. The slide mount is adhered with foam tape, so this wouldn't be a practical card to send in the mail, but would be a lovely hand-delivered card.

I got this slide mount along with others at a local scrap store. Most of the slide mounts I see are cardboard but this one is plastic, so it definitely has a different look to it.

Here is a closeup of the slide mount, so you can see the depth.

This card uses 7gypsies paper and tape, plus Recollections tape. The star rub-on is from Studio Calico. This card is entered at the Love My Tapes star challenge.
