MFW: Card Style Week- Clean & Graphic

Second card challenge by Moxie Fab World.

This card is inspired by Josie's card. It was just so beautifully made.....I knew I had to scrap lift it. So this is my take, a very simple card! (=

Enjoy! And that's all from me!!!

Thank you MFW for the wonderful challenges.

Materials Used:

Cardstock: Bazzil
PP: Font Werks
Smile Sticker: S.E.I Jocelyn
Button: Scarlet Lime kit
Flower: Handmade


You're on your way UP!

For a friend who will be leaving abroad for studies. Perfect sentiment!!

Used mostly masculine colors because it is for a guy. Scallop borders was inspired by Cindy's Card making Class. Tq girlfriend for the wonderful idea!

See the distressed look on the cloud? Honestly it was a mistake, the stamp was placed upside down and I didn't even realize it until it was stamped. Looks kinda neat right? Almost a grungy feel to it....matches the masculine feel. Yeay!!

I think this will be my last card using this stamp set. Will be passing it to Josie then it will going back to Cindy (the owner). It is hard to part, maybe I should get myself one......hmmmm

Materials used:

TQ Cindy, I had a great time!!

My first card challenge..

... inspired by Cindy.

I joined in this card sketch by 2S4U and I must say I enjoyed making it so much. During my drive back from work, so many ideas were popping in my mind and I was excited to cut the papers up....but unfortunately, I had a string of programs after work.

I was determined to participate in this challenge so I started making this card at 12.30am and finished close to 2am.

Without further ado.......*drum Roll pls*, my take...

'Sending Warm Wishes'

Materials used:
PP: Lush collection by My mind's Eye
Stamp: Hero arts greeting
Punches: Fiskars & Martha steward
Champaign Pearls: Local craft store (Good tip from Cindy! TQ girl!)
Brown Flower: Handmade by me. Yeay.

Anyways, I still had fun making it. Simple and to the point. (=

I simple adore this stamp set. If I'm not mistaken, Smidapaper is carrying it...just email Sheila if you're interested.

Have a good week!! Toodles.
