Mojo Monday Chick & Moxie Fab Valentine

Happy Wednesday!  I am having a crafty friend over today which means fun inky time.... I have two cards and two challenges in one post. :) 

This morning I finished my Mojo Monday card to share.  A super cute chick from Verve stamps.


I  used the Mojo Monday Sketch #227 and some lovely October Afternoon papers to create my background.  I stamped the chick and basket a few times to create layers on the ribbon and the chick.

Quick and easy card. It will go in my stash for one of my DD for Easter.

Here is the sketch:

My second share today is my DH valentine's card. I was inspired by the Moxie Fab World Cool Tools Challenge for around the house.

I created a card using sandpaper, wood veneer, and my inks. 

I started with the strip of unfinished wood veneer in light brown.  I applied layers of white acrylic paint, weathered wood dye ink smeared using sandpaper across the finish.  I repeated the process on the cardstock.  I sandpapered the surface of the cardstock and sponged on layers of the inks and paints. I typed up the sentiment on the computer an printed it out.  I sponged the edges to blend in.  I then dye cut the hearts from sandpaper pieces and flipped them back and forth to show the alternate sides.

A CAS card. My kids are so trained with my cards that when I asked my son what did he think he said it needs something more in the empty areas. LOL!  He knows my style well.  I decided since it was for my DH I would keep it CAS.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I'm so glad I dropped by this morning...such excellent inspiration! I love how you used the sketch for that adorable "peeps" card, loving the layered paper banners, and of course your coloring of the chick gives it such cute-ness. And the second card is so full of creative goodness, it's beautiful and cool at the same time, I love the CAS style!
    have a great day!
