Themed cards

I promised to share a little sumthin' earlier today, and here I am!
I wanted to finish the cards that I had in plans for the rest of the Moxie Fab Card Creations challenges. I had these challenges opened in tabs for a few days, and they were tempting me crazily. Now that I let all of my original ideas be transferred into a form, I feel so happy to have had a chance to play with all of them. I may or may not come back at some stage with something 'accidentally' fitting, if I happen to do so before the deadline... *wink*

First up, here's one more entry for the Doilies & Lace Challenge. I covered the "lace" aspect a few days ago and I really wanted to do the doily card as well. Funny how despite being a huge fan of the actual crocheted stuff, I stamped both of them instead. Although looking at the photo below, the white embossed doily (Hero Arts Circle Doily stamp) looks so life like.

The script and the birdies are from WPlus9. I'm also entering this card into Casual Fridays Feathered Friends challenge (CFC52)

Next card is made in collage style and covers the Postage Challenge. I used a range of postage & travel-related supplies here, including Basic Grey's What's Up papers and stickers, Glitz Design stamps, and October Afternoon glazed embellishment/rub-on.

I die cut the tag from Spellbinders™ Tags and Flags Shapeabilities®. I stamped the map, postage marks, sentiment & trail of hearts with various Versa Magic & Memento inks, and stamped the plane with black Versafine.

The embellishment is made from Basic Grey stickers and OA Tin Pin.

I was also inspired by Retro Sketches #11 and PDCC131, making this card.

This about covers it all for tonight, friends! I hope that you enjoyed this post, and that I'll find the time to share something with you tomorrow.
Until then,
