Shady Tree Studio Day 3 and Moxie Fab Challenge!

Welcome back for day 3 of Shady Tree Studio fabulousness! I also snuck a Moxie Fab challenge in here. This close to Christmas I have to multi task! ( I also promised some blog candy... which I will put up in a new post after the sets are officially released. (I don't want to steal Nancy's thunder and show a full set to soon)). So onto today's goods. My first card uses the set Power of Love. I wanted to stay simple and clean (probably my favorite style). I used a white base and embossed it with my spellbinders die. I think its labels 5 but I could be wrong. After embossing I stamped it with this triple heart image. I inked up the stamp in two colors. Next I stamped the sentiment in gray and then added some stickles to the hearts.
A close up of the image and all their stickle goodness.For my next card I was inspired by a couple of things. First off I had been reading facebook and saw this Moxie Fab challenge for glitter. You need to check out this challenge and play along! Second, when I look at this image I am taken back to my late 70's, early 80's childhood. All those puffy letters and rainbows made me think of these glittery shirts I used to have and the fun glittery flocked stickers.

I started by stamping my image on white card. I colored it in with my copics, no shading - just flat coloring. Next I pulled out all my stickles (and I own quite a few!) and glitter painted my image. Then I had to wait for it to dry. After it was dry I mounted it on blue cardstock with pop dots. I wish you could see this in person, the photos (which are not my best- I am working late here) do not do it justice.
One last close up for you. I hope you like sparkle! Come back later and I will have some yummy Shady Tree Studios blog candy for you! You're going to like it!

I like the sparkle on that last card in your last post. I had a look see at the new release. I do like Elegant Valentine but I like how the release caters for many styles, like with Groovy Love (I hope that's the correct name). Thanks!
