Life's Moments

Hi Stampers! Gina K. Designs is sponsoring the Moxie Fab World Blog today! Check out the 8 fantastic stamp sets Cath Edvalson is giving away in celebration of Stamp It! Cards week long celebration! Stop over to The Moxie Fab World Blog for a chance to win these fabulous stamp sets! All you have to do is leave a comment on the this Moxie Fab post for a chance to win.

My card above features two stamp sets, Many Wishes and Sweetest Memories, that are part of the prize package at Moxie Fab. Gina and the rest of the design team will be using images from many of the prize sets, so hop on over to Gina's blog, then check out what the rest of the team has for you to see.

To start my card, I sponged the background layer. I used Pure Luxury White cardstock and sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink. keeping the ink lightest around the center of the cardstock.

Then I sponged Memento Tangelo ink, working my way in from the edges, but not as far as the previous color.

Sponged Memento Lady Bug ink, this time keeping pretty close to the edges.

Sponged Memento Potters Clay over the Lady Bug red. I failed to note the ink on my fingers from the lid of the ink pad and added a few marks. This is becoming a habit. LOL.

I let the accidental marks determine the placement of the dandelions, stamping each size from Many Wishes, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I used the silhouette grass stamp from Hang in There, to add some dimension to the foreground. First I stamped several times with Memento Desert Sand Then I inked up with Rich Cocoa and stamped off once before stamping on the image and repeated that a few times to create some depth.

The sentiment is from Sweetest Memories. I inked it up with Memento Potter's Clay, then used a Memento Rich Cocoa marker to ink up the words Life and Moments. Added piercing to two corners and then layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss cardstock. The cardbase is Pure Luxury Pumpkin Spice.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you day is filled with fun and laughter!
