Metal and wood

Hi there, lovelies! I’m sorry for a long-ish break, I took the time to enjoy Chuplet’s 4th birthday (my older girl, Zuzia). Her actual birthday is tomorrow but her parties have been all over the place so that we could fit them time-wise. She had a little celebration at her day care group, a party with her friends this weekend, and there will be one coming for our family as well – I’ve been so wrapped up! It’s so worth it, though… I love this cute little face and everything else that comes in the package… LOL! She’s my precious πŸ™‚

However, I did squeeze a moment here and there to sneak into the craft room. It’s my aim to play with all of the Moxie Fab World Handmade Cards Week challenges, I *love* what’s on the offer and my head is buzzing with ideas… I have been tackling The Metal, Wood & Cork challenge so far, I chose first because it’s the most out of my comfort zone. Are you with me??
Anyway, once I started I couldn’t stop as the ideas kept coming, and hence all of these πŸ™‚

On the first card, I used the forgotten mini metal frame which I don’t even remember sourcing from anywhere, lol! For long months it was waiting for a reason to be unearthed and I guess this was the one πŸ™‚ I paired it with a fantastic Penny Black die cut (added some colour to the bird with a Copic marker), and a MFT sentiment stamped on a Simon Says banner die. The texture on the card front is courtesy of a PTI impression plate.


I’m also playing with ric#44, with the card above (thanks, Kimberly!)

The next one, a cute and playful card which was made with a baby boy arrival in mind. I let the patterned paper reinforce the message; love how it looks like a falling confetti, over the banner with a onesie on a mini clothes hanger. I got the hangers from Impress long ago and they were also waiting for their time to come.

Lastly, a card which started great but finished not so much… I suppose it’s ok, but it looked a bit plain with the initial arrangement so I kept adding to it and lost the plot along the way. I’ve got October Afternoon paper, PTI die, Paper Smooches sentiment, and some Studio Calico wood veneers here. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚ Hope to see you tomorrow!
