FOUR Moxie Sketch Cards ....

Over at Moxie Fab World they are doing a lot of sketch challenges to get your ideas a'flowin. I love working with sketches because they really force me to work outside of my comfort zone.  So here goes...

First up is the Shaped Sketch Challenge...

I made this nautical Thank You card for my friend who invited me to Marthas Vineyard for a mini getaway! To cut all the shapes I used basic shapes in my Make The Cut software and cut with my Silhouette.  The sailboat was cut with my Cricut from the Just Because cartridge.  I heat embossed the brown and the blue on the sailboat, and stamped the Martha Stewart sentiment in aqua ink.

Second up is the Square Sketch Challenge....

I didn't get caught up in the whole 'Christmas in July' thing, but now that it's August I felt a huge urge for some winter themed stuff.  The snowflakes were cut with my Silhouette machine and Make the Cut software.  The 'tis the season' stamp is by Inkadinkado, and all I added was a simple winter button in the middle.

Third up is the Horizontal Sketch Challenge AND my CAS-ual Fridays 'Stuck on You' entry, which was to use a sticker or a rub-on....

This is a very basic sketch and I wanted to keep it that way.  I just cut squares in Autumn colored card stock, rounded two corners on each, and added the red leaves which were my stickers.  The 'hello' sentiment is from a Hero Arts stamp, inked in orange. The edges of the card have also been inked in orange.

Fourth and Last up is the Vertical Sketch Challenge....

I loved making this card because I finally had a reason to use my favorite DCWV paper stack ever in the history of everdom.  The Colorful Life paper stack is so so gorgeous, I love the artwork of the pages which was actually my inspiration for my huge canvas painting. I texture embossed the blue paper with a Sizzix folder.  Instead of triangles like the sketch shows, I did dripping buttons adhered with GlueDots.  The 'oh, hay hay' (which always makes me laugh inside) are glittered letter stickers.

Deep Breath! That's a lot of cards for one post, I hope you were able to take it all in.  I had fun with these sketches because they seemed different than all the sketch challenges I usually partake in.  I hope you join in the fun!

Also I'm freaking out about Hurricane Irene.... coming from Arizona there aren't many natural disasters we have to worry about. This weekend will definitely be a new experience.  Please stay safe
