All last week Paper Crafts Connection (http://papercraftsconnection.com/) and Moxie Fab World (http://www.moxiefabworld.com/) have been celebrating the release of their newest special publication 225 Cards & Gifts with lots of fun giveaways and a Mother's Day challenge. To see all the submissions from all the amazingly talented paper crafters out there, go to http://www.flickr.com/groups/cardsandgiftsweekchallenge/.
Stella Ruby Birds Note Card Set
My first submission is a note card set that I will be giving my mom for Mother's Day this year. I think she'll really love the colors, images, and especially the Stella Ruby Basic Grey paper. All the bird images, from a gorgeous set by Inkadinkadoo called Gem Stone Birds, are heat embossed to add that great touchey-feeley quality to the cards. All cards also include machine stitching (which, I admit, is not my forte' but adds to the homemade feel of the cards).
Details: Stamps - Inkadinkadoo Clear Stamps 98849 Gem Stone Birds; Paper - Basic Grey Stella Ruby 6x6 pad; Ink - VersaMark; Embossing Powder - Tim Holtz Distress Powder, Ink It! Embossing Powder, Judi*Kins Embossing Powder; Punches - SU!, Fiskars; Other - Carolace, thread, Halcraft blank notecards.
Urban Couture Snack Set
My second submission is a snack set I made using Basic Grey Urban Couture paper. I will be using this particular set myself. :) I love how especially this line of BG paper gives a distressed feel without all the work!
Details: Paper - Basic Grey Urban Couture 12 x 12; Other - Making Memories paint, Stickles, Mod Podge, misc. wooden boxes.
Thanks so much for looking! Leave me a comment - let me know what you think.
