TGF Battle of the Design Teams, Week 2

I'm back again to post my card for this week's TGF Battle of the Design Teams. This week we were challenged to create an 'easel' card. I have NEVER made one of these before, but I found a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and it was pretty easy to follow. I used Kazan's sketch 49 at 2 Sketches 4 You to create my card. Here it is:

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: K&Co (Wild Raspberry)
Embellishments: Stickles; stash- ribbon
Tools: Martha Stewart- Doily Lace edge punch; The Greeting Farm- stamp (Lolli Anya); Papertrey Ink- stamp (Signature Greetings); Spellbinders Labels 3; Sizzix Big Kick; Copic Markers

Our team voted my card to be the 'official' entry for us this week. In order for us to move forward in the challenge we have to be in the top-half of votes received. So we need your votes to continue! Please visit The Greeting Farm's gallery and vote for the 'Team Moxie' entry. You will need to register, but it only takes a couple minutes. We'd really appreciate your help to get us thru to next week! Once you've registered, you can vote by leaving a comment on the 3 cards you like most. Our entry will be filed under 'Team Moxie' here: TGF Royal Battle Week 2

Thanks for stopping by :-)

TGF Battle of the Design Teams, Week 1

Hello again! It's been over a week since I last posted so I thought I share some of what I've been working on. I'm currently participating in The Greeting Farm's challenge for their blog readers and fans. We were all put into teams and each week we are presented with a different challenge. The challenge for the first week was to create a 'retro' themed card using the colors in this image:

Here's what I came up with:

Cardstock: Paper Studio
Patterned Paper: Bo Bunny (Kitchen Spice)
Embellishments: Basic Grey- stickers; Martha Stewart- glitter; The Greeting Farm- stamp (80's Anya)
Tools: Spellbinders Labels 8; Sizzix Big Kick; Copic Markers

I just have no idea how to even begin creating something with a 'retro' theme, but hey I gave it a shot!

Thanks for stopping by :-)
