Tuesday Trigger in Card Creations Week

Hi Everyone!

One of the blogs I follow regularly is Cath's Moxie Fab World. I decided to enter her challenge for this week's Tuesday Trigger. This week's challenge is to create a paper crafted project that was inspired by cards created by Betsy Veldman and Jessica Witty.

They both stamped a grid on their cards and embellished the squares they had stamped. I used one of my stamps from the PaperTrey Ink Quilter's Sampler Additions set and stamped onto a sheet of paper from the DCWV Songbird block.

I trimmed each square and mounted them onto a sheet of green tag. I then placed the "quilt" I created in an embossing folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug to give it a textured look.

I stamped the flowers with a daisy stamp from Purple Daisy Designs, embossed them, and then punched them out with an EK Success punch. Purple Daisy Designs designed a series of stamps that work with EK Success punches. I used mini glue dots to attach the flowers to the quilt and then placed a rhinestone in the center of each flower.

The scissors and thread stamps I used are from PaperTrey Ink's Quilter's Sampler set. I wrapped embroidery floss around the thread to add dimension to it. I stamped and colored the scissors to make them look like the Fiskars scissors that are sitting next to me. I added a tiny brad to the scissors.

The "Thank You SEW Much!" stamp is from Stampabilities. I added a blunt needle and some embroidery floss to it.

Hope that you enjoy the card and hope that you will add Moxie Fab World to the blogs that you follow.

I've been very busy creating lately so stop by tomorrow to see more cards.
