To start off my post I wanted to share my card for the newest Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger.
Don't you just want to go here? I love how inviting it is and it also makes for a great challenge.
Here is my card to go along with the trigger. There were two things in particular that caught my attention in the trigger. That wonderful, red print one one of the pillows that looks like a stitched design and the striped, blue pillows.
I also liked the combination of white, blue and red. I used an embossing folder to create the lines in the blue, Vintage Core'dinations cardstock and then sanded my squares. I thought that was a great way to mimic the striped pillows.
I tried to figure out how I could created something that would have that red, stitched look and I thought of a technique I have read about but not tried yet. I took one of my embossing folders and I a red Ancient Page stamp pad and gave one side of the embossing folder a coat with the red ink. I then inserted a piece of white cardstock and ran this through my Cuttlebug. The embosssed design then had a slight red tint to the design. After I cut this piece out with a Spellbinder Nestabilities label shape, I added a little more of the red color to the cut and embossed edges.
The flower is by Recollections and that was added over a piece of white tulle that is tried in a couple bows.
It is raining here today, something we seldom see except for this year when we are getting our fair share. My card using a new collection by Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker is so fitting. Notice the badge on my sidebar showing this collection, It's Raining, It's Pouring. I just love every part of this cute set. You can also see this card and several others in a blog post at Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker.
The little turtle with his umbrella is a die cut that I cut out. I added Aleene's Paper Glaze to the dots on the umbrella and his boots.
And this is what we were up to last night! Our youngest grandson collided with a coffee table. The interesting part of this is that the coffee table had padding on two sides to hopefully prevent something like this. Anyway, our daughter ended up in the emergency room for a couple hours last night to make sure all was OK. The damage looks worse then it actually is, I guess.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
