Moxie Fab Challenges!! =)

Well today I decided to play along with the MoxieFab Blog Challenges!!
Here are a couple that I decided to join in on!!



This was a REALLY NEW technique for me!! I have seen all of the fun masking
techniques out there and I have always wanted to try it, but could never bring myself to just take a chance. Then I saw the challenge and knew this was my chance!! So I cut out the number dies from Paper Trey Ink onto a masking sheet and the added it to the front on my card!! I ran out of room for the whole year so I decided to run with it and just add the 1 in on top out of black cardstock. I used Color Box white pigment ink to ink in over the numbered masking sheet and then made sure it was dry before I removed it and then traced over the numbers with my black sharpie pen. I then placed the masked numbers on top of the white inked numbers and removed the large masking sheet leaving only the masked numbers on my card!! I then inked up my Dictionary Unity Stamp with archival black ink and stamped over the masked numbers onto the front of my card!! I was SO HAPPY with the results!! =) Then I removed the masking from the numbers and added the ribbon and lace to the bottom of my card and it looked like it was still missing something??
So then I decided to cut out a script HAPPY from another Paper Trey Ink die and layer that on top of the #1, again cutting it out of Black cardstock!!
I hope you LOVE the card as much as I do and if you haven't tried masking I hope you'll give it a try!!
Next I decided to join the Trigger Tuesday Challenge with the houndstooth challenge and I LOVE my card!! Here are the challenge pictures.


I decided to use the houndstooth stamp from Hero Arts and Basic Grey and I stamped it in Hero Arts Shadow Ink Green Leaf. I wanted a green color, but yet I wanted it just be a soft and airy green color. I turned out perfect for the base. Then I added a doily that I sprayed with Tattered Angels Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist!!
Then I used a Paper Trey Ink Build a Flower Die#1 to make a really fun gold poinsettia!!
I added a green leaf and then used some of the May Arts Pearl Wire Ribbon to add to both sides of the flower!! I placed a Prima Dove Button in the center of the flower and I LOVE how it came out!!
I then stamped and white embossed a sentiment from the Paper Trey Ink Stamp set Stylish Holiday Sentiments. It was the PERFECT finishing touch!! I inked around the edges with the same leaf green shadow ink and knew the card was finished!!
So I hope you enjoyed my cards and that you'll join the challenges in the New Year over at the MoxieFab Blog!! =)
