Great News and some Moxie Fab Stuff!

Remember how I told you that the decision for the SCS Clean and Simple (CAS) DT was going to be made last night? Well guess what???
I was chosen!!  Woohoo!!

I am still in shock yet so happy to have been given this opportunity to work with some very talented stampers here on SCS.  If you haven't gone to the CAS forum and participated in the challenges, I highly recommend it.  They are posted HERE every Monday!

There were a total of three of us chosen so I will be working along with these other wonderful stampers.


Plus... Jen has lined up the most wonderful Guest Designers to work with us through out our term! I am looking forward to a wonderful CAS Season with these ladies!

As part of the CAS DT Olympic Closing Ceremonies celebration, Jen asked the past and present DT members and the candidates for this term to make a card based off of a few sketch choices she gave us.  I chose to make a card following this sketch HERE.  I turned the sketch upside down for my sample!

The cool thing is that I was also able to make this card follow the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger for this week!

I was so inspired by the yellow on Kraft and the big yellow bow that Kimberly Crawford designed in this gorgeous photo.

With all that inspiration, this is what I came up with...

I really like the way the yellow looks on Kraft and hope to use this combination again.  Well in fact you will see below that I did use it over and over again!! LOL!!

The stamps that I used are from {ippity} by Unity (which you can purchase from me HERE!)  The Chandelier is from the new Winter set called Regal Greetings and the sentiment is from one of our fall line sets called Just Wanted to Say.  The DP is from Scribble Scrabble and the ribbon is from Martha Stewart.

I couldn't stop there and decided that I needed to make some Thank You cards to have on hand to give to my {ippity} customers, so I made these cards too!


The polka dotted paper is the same paper, but just the reverse side and the brown ribbon was an online purchase I made on Ebay.

Here are some close up views of these four cards.  I didn't add the extra bling to these and kept them purely CAS.



 

I really like the way these came out and hopefully you are going to try and see what the Moxie Fab Trigger
will do to get your juices flowing!  Have a wonderful Thursday and I will see you in the morning for Unity's Friends With Flair Blog Hop!! 

May your bucket overflow with good things to look forward to for the next three months!!
