Another Pleated Card

I couldn't resist making another card. I tried a different pleat this time. I love the black peeking out between the red.

You must hop on over to Moxie Fab World and try out the challenges!

Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger/Momento Mori

This is the eerie inspiration picture for the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger Challenge. Creepy, creepy! I had to go to my dark side to muster up a card for this. If you haven't tried any of these challenges, then I CHALLENGE you to go for it. It stretches my brain to get out of my comfort zone. By the way, this is good brain exercise also!

I did it all in gray, black and white. It reminded me of the old black and white horror shows. I made the pattern by using the old trusted distresses crumpled paper. I haven't done that in years. I stamped the image and embossed it in black. I used black velvet ribbon and overlayed it with a sheer gray ribbon. I needed to soften the black. It was too stark. And of course, I had to add some black and gray bitty pearls to add more shine.

Perfectly Placed Pleats Challenge

Hello! I worked hard this weekend and created two cards for two challenges. The first is the Perfectly Placed Pleats Challenge from Moxie Fab World. I made this from a clear scalloped circle card. As you can see I'm in the Christmas spirit! I tried making a fall card, but this Christmas tree kept popping in my head - so I succumbed!

The red bulbs are glittery glue dots and the star is glittery also. It's so hard to create a card without sparkle or shine. This inspired me to make some other pleated cards, so be ready to see more in the future!

Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

This luxurious inspiration is from The Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger. The colors are just divine!

For my card I used a patterned paper that reminded me of the wallpaper but with all the colors in it. I added some sparkle and a little shine. The shape of the chair shows up in the edge of the card and the square side table in the focal point.

I love these colors!

Celebrate World Card Making Day!

Today is World Card Making Day! How will you celebrate it? I will celebrate it all month long, along with my Birthday! It's an exciting time...the weather is getting cooler and my Mums are looking gorgeous!

I've starting making my Christmas cards and will be pumping them out all month because once November hits it's all about decorating the house for the holidays! Oh...the anticipation!

For this card I used Colonial White CS, CTMH Mistletoe Level 2 paper pack, A Timber My Acrylix stamp set, Cocoa, and Olive ink and Glitz Glitter Gel. Fun stuff ladies! I can't get enough of the Sparkle.

Here's another one I made for this glorious occasion.

I've made more, but saving some for the World Card Making Day Contest.
