Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger, May Arts and WOYWW

I actually got to play along with the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger Challenge this week!   The trigger is this cool fabric from Moda.

I decided to go literal and get all polka dotted.  I muted down the colors a bit and I think I really like it.

Once the circle placement was done, it went together really fast.  I used all Bazzill Basics papers, even for the base.  I love the texture it adds, almost like fabric.

Paper - Bazzill Basics (various textures)
Stamps - Papertrey Ink Friendship Jar Spring Fillers
Accessories - SU  1-1/4" circle punch, tape gun

Now on to WOYWW over at Julia's Stamping Ground #99 (!) I just cleared off my workdesk...well, mostly...after yesterday's cards.  And no, you may not look at the table behind that stool!  Be sure to head over to see workdesks from all over the world...some messy and some oh so neat!  (sigh)

Those plastic bins on the shelves hold my acrylic stamps and various books.  The book on my desk is mine from childhood...about 5th grade, I think.  I loved the story..."The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew".   :-)

Be sure to pop over to the May Arts blog this week.  It's May Arts/Little Yellow Bicycle Blog Week!  Lots of fun inspiration and giveaways.

I'll have a fun project for you this week. In the meantime, be sure to check out the cool projects from the other designers as well.

Thanks so much for spending time here!  I love your visits.

Triple Tuesday

Hope you all had a beautiful Easter weekend.  We were surprised by a visit from my nephew who we haven't seen in 14 years.  I am thrilled to say he is a wonderful young man and we were so blessed by his visit.  He spent a couple of nights and went to church with us.  It was fun to have a young man to feed once again!   :-)

I've got two cards today...I can tell my age is beginning to take it's toll.  I had mounds of laundry and cleaning to do and was just too tired to post yesterday.  Hope you'll forgive me.

Here's the card I created for the SCS Clean and Simple Challenge (CAS116)  this week.  We were to use the Rule of Thirds.   It's a rule of composition for photography or art.  The link gives a grid and description.

I used the Alpha Blocks die from Papertrey Ink to cut my little rectangles, popped them up on dimensionals, then added my sentiment.  (PTI Train Tracks).  Super easy, super simple.  I have a problem lining things up due to a brain injury so I won't tell you how many times I had to move those little shapes!

Paper - Neenah Paper (base), SU Melon Mambo, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories - Alpha-Blocks die (Papertrey Ink), dimensionals

Next up is the Teapot Tuesday (MMTPT143) Challenge.  This week's card destination is a fun one.  We can choose to send the card to the person who uploads to the left of us, if they're participating in the challenge! 

I used the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday 188  Sketch Challenge.  They've given us two options...round or square.  I chose one of my most favorite shaped card templates from The Cutting Cafe - the Scalloped Circle!  This month's inspiration challenge from TCC is shaped cards.  

Here's the inspiration teapot although, if you choose to play, it's an anything goes challenge.

I used one of my oldie but goody sets from Stamps by Judith called Early Bird.  I also used the same DCWV adhesive backed paper that I used on this card.  I think I'm addicted to it.  No taping, no gluing...awesome colors!   The sentiment panel is popped on dimensionals.  I cut the backs off the brads and adhered them with glue dots.

Paper - Black base (PTI), DP (DCWV Adhestive back Pattern Stack)
Card Templates - The Cutting Cafe - Scalloped Circle Shaped Card and Circles
Ink - Memento, Copic markers
Stamps - Stamps by Judith Early Bird
Accessories - sewing machine, dimensionals, brads, white marker (tool alert!  The BEST white marker is the Sailor White Writer rolling ball pen)

Shopping alert - There's a 20% off entire purchase coupon for Michael's link on the SCS link!  Not sure how long it's going to be there so go pick it up....quick!
