Moxie Fab Stuff!

There's always something fun going on in the Moxie Fab World, and today's the last day to get projects linked up for the Card Creations Week challenges (extended while Cath heals from shoulder surgery). There are also another 5 challenges open for Stamp It! week, and those are open until July 23, so lots of time to check them out.

My first card was hard to photograph. It's for both the Damask & Brocade challenge, and the Congratulations challenge.
Supplies: black cardstock; black detail EP;
damask stamp from Fiskars;
congratulations stamp from Studio G;
black rhinestones; Palette Noir ink for envelope
I have a hard time using black embossing powder since I find I generally make a mess with it. I love how this turned out - and the shine is perfect in real life. You can click it to big it to see the detail.

My next card is a baby card - which to me suits the Congratulations challenge as well! - and has a hand-crocheted mat, which I consider a doily, so it's for the Doilies & Lace challenge too.

Supplies: polka dot paper from MME;
stamped in Worn Lipstick distress ink with a tiny heart from PSX;
Feet from All Night Media;
sentiment from Studio G (London Fog memento ink);
embossing folder from Cuttlebug;
standard small & lacy circle Nesties;
mat crocheted by me
The Stamp It! challenges require that stamping be the primary technique, and I think this suits - all those little hearts! I used 'generation' stamping to create a gradient effect with the hearts on the background paper - the top & bottom areas are stamped with full-strength ink, and the centre dots are done with the second impression. The heart by the sentiment is also done with a second impression, and the feet are full-strength. I stamped the feet & sentiment before embossing, and the heart after.

My last two cards are both for the Doilies & Lace challenge - I love doilies. Love them, and use them often. 

Supplies: patterned paper from MME;
doily from Wilton;
sentiment from Wordsworth stamps;
bird from Inkadinkado;
London Fog memento ink; blue pearls

Supplies: paper from K & Co;
cake sticker & doily from Wilton;
scrap vellum;
Studio G sentiment; Versamark ink; Moonstone EP from Stampendous;
silver brads from Making Memories

So there you have it - another 4 cards, this time for 3 challenges. I guess four cards seems to be a good number in a post :) Like I said previously, the Card Creations week challenges are over tonight, so link up quick! And the Stamp It! week challenges are open until July 23.

The black on black on black rocks! What a brilliant solution for using black embossing powder!! I usually just use VersaFine Onyx Black ink and clear embossing powder instead...
