Moxie Fab/Hero Arts Challenge Cards

Hi there!
Just thought I'd show a couple of cards I've entered in the Hero Arts August challenge HERE , and Moxie Fab World Gallon, Quart, Pint challenge HERE .  For the Hero Arts challenge, I chose the sketch challenge for these cards....sketch # 3.  Here's the sketch -I used the bottom one on the right side.  For the first card above, I pretty much kept with the sketch.  I used the Hero Arts/sizzix Stamp & Die Cut Framelits Floral # 657776.  I love this set.  There are six cling stamps and six dies - one to cut each image.  I can see I'm going to be using this one a LOT!!

The Moxie Fab Gallon, Quart, Pint challenge is one of the week's lessons on card design.  The wonderful people over at MFW have so many great ideas, tips, and information.  The idea of the three sizes is to use one color the most (Gallon), the second color a lesser amount (Quart), and the third color just a touch (Pint).  On the card above, yellow is my gallon size, pink is my quart size, and green is my pint size.  On the card below, blue is my gallon size, brown is my quart size, and green is my pint size.

For this next card, I used the same sketch, just rotated it one turn to the left.  I'm loving this stamp, also.  I think I may have left it at my friends' house when I went there to stamp a couple of days ago, so cannot provide the name or number of it right now.  Here's the card:
Admittedly, I'm not much of a 'clean and simple' type stamper, but I have enjoyed this little veering from the path to do these and a few others I have made for my card ministry at my church.  I kind of like the challenge of keeping it simple.  Hmmm, who knew!  Of course, I had to add some rhinestones and a little bow, and some pearls to the one above.  Gotta have some bling!

That's it for now.  Have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!  And be sure to hop on over to Hero Arts Blog and Moxie Fab World blog via the links above!




  1. Beautiful cards, Lynda!! I especially love the flower stamp and the way you shaded the flower petals. Can you bring the stamp set to our group on Saturday? Would love to see it.
