This post covers quite a bit of ground so I didn't even know what to call it!
First off, the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger. I love the shape of this adorable little creation so I could have gone with a shaped card but I wanted to go with the country look of the materials and that it is a craft project.
I picked out some patterned papers that went along with the colors in the little creation and I punched them in small punched squares to create a quilt like look. Plus, I thought this piece of Core'dinations embossed cardstock also had a craft look to it and I added some machine sewing.
The add the "house" or "cottage" part to my card, I used a chipboard house from Maya Road. I painted it with a very simple cream color paint and then sponged the outside edge with brown Distress Ink. Next I stamped it with a woodgrain stamp by Hero Arts. And, of course, the twine from The Twinery also added a homemade look to the card.
For this card, I used a flower digital stamp by Hero Arts plus I just found out some really great news, it was a winner in the February contest at Hero Arts for a digital card!!! The background paper is a digital paper available at 2 Peas in a Bucket, the stamp is available there too. I opened a Microsoft Word document and inserted the piece of paper and sized it to the size I wanted. I then opened the little grouping of flowers. I copied that and pasted another set of the flowers and placed them close together to look like one big bunch of flowers. I printed this out all at once.
I added little black rhinestones to the middles of some of the flowers and I added white Liquid Pearls to some of the other flowers. The sentiment is a stamp by Hero Arts.
Last up, my Card Positioning Systems card for this week. Lil' Inker is the sponsor so that is where I got this most adorable mouse.
The patterned papers are by Echo Park from a mini pad.
