Chevron Chic Challenge in the Moxie Fab World!

The Moxie Fab World is having a very cool challenge and I decided to play along!

The "chevron" look is sooo hot right now and it's spreading to all things chic like clothing for babies, wall art, home decor and soo much more!

My card has a chevron pattern too but much more subtle and used in a natural way. Can ya spy it?

I used my Cricut "Preserves" cart to make the pineapple cut and title. The chevron stripes have been embossed with the SU Square Lattice folder for the texture. Golden Rod Stickles is what's shining on the flower center.

A profile shot to show some dimension of the chevron stripes! I raised every other chevron layer to really emphasize the look of the pineapple. It looks rough like a real pineapple doesn't it?!

What a fun look! There are so many applications and projects this can be used for. You can expect to see me playing with it again very soon ; )

Have a great weekend : )

Color Challenge May 24

happy Wednesday!!!! I tried several times to post yesterday but Blogger was freaky? Anyway....

A unique,soft, pretty color challenge is up at The Outlawz

Majestic Violet, Dynamo Pink & Pineapple Soda Mahvelous May: Add flowers!

Here is what I saw looking at this palette.

I used my Cricut and "Forever Young" cartridge to make the girl and the title. I'm so happy it's warming up and beginning to feel a little more like summer every day. I am truly a summer girl. Can't stand being cold! Flip flops are my favorite and I love girly summer dresses : )

Maybe if you are feelin' the heat you'll make a "cool" card too!

I'm thinking lemonade right about now :)

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!

2 random baby cards I made

I made baby cards for some friends who just had a baby boy so I thought I'd share it here with you too!

The ducky card was made using the "New Arrival" Cartridge with my Cricut Expressions. I cut the bubbles out of the same cart and added Martha Stewart glitter to them to make them appear wet! The coordinating tag I made using the negative duck I cut out at a smaller size. Inked up a dauber and matched the cardstock as best I could. The large card I added a piece of paper that I fussy cut to look like waves. It's embossed with the Cuttlebug using the swirls folder and inked over with white pigment ink for a softer look. Here and there I added a touch of glitter so it sparkled just a bit! The ducks eye is a black pearl from MS too! Love her supplies so much!

The Stork delivering the baby boy is cut from the "Nursery Rhymes" cart. I also used my Expressions for this one. The two clouds were cut free hand from embroidery cloth for a textured feel. I layered the stork with grey cs to add depth. I cut a banner out of the same cart to look like an announcement across the sky!!!! Have ya ever seen those while you were at the beach? It reminds me of when I went to the Jersey Shore and the airplanes would fly by with special announcements on them!! I tied it on with thin white string.

Welcome baby William Ralph!!!

Color Challenge May 17

A new color challenge is up at The Outlawz!!! I hope you come and check it out this week. The colors were a very neutral combo to work with and I think if you are limited on time like most us are, this time of the year, you can whip up a card for this challenge in no time at all.

Denim, White, Copper

and the "Mahvelous May" twist is to add stitching on your project!

Here is the gift set I made:

It contains a card with a denim pocket that is held on with copper brads,a bookmark (abc123 edger by Martha Stewart) I embossed with argyle and a tag to attach to the gift box once I wrap it up. I cut up an old pair of jeans and used embroidery floss to add just a few spots of pink to attach it and add color to the project! That is all th stitching I did. Easy peasy!
Try it and you are gonna see how fast it comes together!

Happy Wednesday : )

Color Challenge May 3rd

This week at The Outlawz Color Challenge all DT members used the same digital image to show how we all have unique styles.
Here is what we used as our inspiration photo (for colors):

Digi's With Attitude has supplied the Design team with a fabulous image to play with today. We were all given Tabatha and Tony to play with. Good thing too, because the color inspiration picture this week features our colors of Orange, Black or Brown, White and the Mahvelous May twist is to use twine on your project!

Here is my version:

It's hard to see but I added flock to the whites of their ears and pink to their noses and tan flock to look like a shadow. STabitha also is sporting a rhinestone necklace! Click on image to see larger version!
You have to see what the other DT members did-AMAZING,really. I don't colr with Copics but they do and they seriously belong in magazines or something!
Hope you are inspired by the colors and make something to share with us!
