I used a stamp from the Unity Stamp Co. set Beautiful Wish to give the background some interest.
Then I used the flower stamp from the same set and stamped it with orange ink. What's up with me and orange flowers lately??
The sentiment is from a different Unity Stamp set, I don't know the name though. I thought it was perfect! I outlined it a bit with a white pen and splattered a little white ink on it too (because I can never help myself!).
Too much of a good thing can be wonderful! I hope I can report that I am having too much amazing weather next time I blog! That would truly be Wonderful!!!
Doesn't this card look like it has a real chocolate bunny on it?
There are many pieces to all of Moxxie's collections. There are several double sided papers, die-cuts and stickers. I picked my pieces from the "Spring Has Sprung" collection. I picked "Cottontail", *he is just too sweet* "Spring Fling" *such a pretty blue* and "Bluebird" *i think it looks like dyed Easter eggs* as my papers and the Double Sided Die-Cuts border *that looks like a fence*. I also got my Easter stamps (sorry I don't remember who made them), Ranger Distress Ink "Evergreen Bough", Tombow Stamp Runner Dot Pattern Adhesive and a water brush. I took out ribbon, but didn't use it.
I cut and layered all of the papers on a card base and stamped "Easter" at the top. Then, I colored the greenery on the fence with the same ink and a water brush. I adhered it across the bottom of the card. I had to, literally be restrained hold myself back from adding splashes of paint, ribbons, gauze, buttons, ink..... you get the point. But I wanted the artwork on the paper speak for its self. It is just that beautiful!!

This could be a very long post but I will try to speed things up.
I will begin with my inspiration for my project.
Sometimes we get these wonderful papers and know exactly what to use them for, and others we get just because we like. So, as I was thinking about using Moxxie Fun Run paper I just couldn't find inspiration. I was having an artistic block.
So when I can't control my thought process (the block) I clean something up...in order to gain control again. And I decided to clean my kids art supplies.
My kids are 19 and 11, so in almost 20 years....they have accumulated roughly 5120 crayons, 2560 markers, 1920 colored pencils, and 80 pair of scissors.
This was the stuff they did not use!
So as I was putting the last donated crayon in the box...I had a vision.
And so my "bloom" girl was born. She was beautiful and she had crayons in her hair and crayon on her face.
I melted the crayons and used it to "paint" my girl. I thought she looked like she has lived motherhood...through "the dirt, the mud, the grime and the glory"
I guess to make my story short, I used Moxxie Fun Run line to create what it feels for me to come to this new chapter of motherhood.
I met Sarah in the 7th grade when I felt like a nerdy outcast and she was the popular flirt. Despite distance (we both moved in high school), we kept in touch. I was her Maid of Honor and she was mine. This picture is when she came to visit me when my youngest was born. It is so nice to have a friend who knows where you came from and sees the evolution of who you are.
To showcase this photo, I used MOXXIE's Springtime line filled with juicy, happy colors. The vibrancy of the line sings to me of friendship and youth.
I smeared paint on the background, then stamped over with more paint. Layered on the pretty Springtime papers and used MOXXIE letters that coordinate so well. A few embellishments here and there and the page was a breeze.
Hi all, once in a while i get a crazy idea and i will not rest until i do it. Well, this time i was mad i couldn't find an art journal i liked so I thought- i have mixed media paper i will make one.
And once i eyed the preview of the new collections before the release i just knew i was going to use springtime to cover my journal. So without too much detail, otherwise this post will go on forever i folded, punched and binded the paper(tons of book binding videos on YouTube btw) along with using an old cereal box for a lil sturdier cover.
I then took out my springtime papers and stickers and layered them so i could cover the front and back.
Next i added some gem dots and layered alpha stickers for my title. Lastly, ( the fun part) i grabbed my fave springtime stickers and paper bits and added them to two inside pages and colored, doodled, painted around them to make my first pages.
Today I'm showing a mixed media layout I made using the new "Winery" line.
I used 3 Moxxie papers and the cardstock stickers. Both sides of "Aged To Perfection" were used. The barrel print is the background and the opposite side had the pretty scrolls I cut out and added to the top right. I got the purple banner from the "Winery Cutouts" paper. And the cork scrolls came from the "Winery Stickers".
Here is a close up of the top. You can see I used gesso, modeling paste, stencils. inks and paints. I also added tissue tape, ephemera and resin frames.
On the bottom left I added the same mediums, paints, stencils and inks I also added a resin button and some green string to balance out the green scroll from the top.

Hi! Today I'm sharing a mixed media layout I made using Moxxie's "Springtime" line.
This line has the most beautiful colors and textures!!
The background paper I started with is "Take Flight". I used spray inks, inks, stencils, stamps and a marker on it. I tore strips from the "Springtime Cutouts" and "Songbird" papers and adhered them to the background. Then I added some mesh tape and acrylic paints. I cut the butterfly and the bird out of the papers and layered them on top. Some pretty flowers and wood pieces finished it off.
Here is the entire line. Isn't it fabulous!!!
I hope you will look for this line! You can find it online and at your local scrpbooking store!!

Hi all, i am stopping by to share some fun handmade ornaments i made using a large diecut (adorable snowman) and fussy cutting out images (sled and ice skates) from the winterland paper.
I first, punched and cut them out of the paper and punched holes near the tops where i want my ribbon to tie onto. Next, i placed the images on wax paper to keep from sticking while drying cause here is the fun part. Squeeze an even thick layer of dimensional glue over the entire image. (Tip-do not shake the dimensional glue as not to get bubbles and keep tip down in glue while covering images to keep a smooth cover).

Then, i sprinkled iridescent fine glitter to the wet glue. I then repeated on the other images and let dry overnight then covered the other side with just the glue to make for a nice thick dimensional ornament.
Lastly, i added a pretty ribbon to each and hung on my tree. I just love the vintagey look they have to them!
These would make great gifts too! Make sure to get your hands on some winterlandso you can give this a try. Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!
