Believe - Ombre Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

I made this Believe card for the ombre challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Here is the card:

I used the curve edge dies to cut two masks and applied different green colors of Distress ink pads to create the hill for the ombre effect. Then, I stamped the little house and tree on top of the hill and colored with Copic markers. Finish the card with the text greeting I love - "just believe and the impossible becomes possible".

Here is a closer look of the card:

Cardstocks: PTI (cream)
Stamps: PTI (house & tree), WPlus9 Design (text greeting)
Ink Pads: Distress ink pads, Archival ink pad (black)
Others: edge die (PTI), Copic markers

You Make Me Smile

When I saw this Camera Craze Challenge on the Moxie Fab World, it remminds me of these two little cute camera stamps immediately. Here is the photo for the cute camera stamps:

Are they cute? And below is the opposite side (the rubber portion) of the stamps:

I used these two stamps to make a card with a cut-out round window on the card front. Here is the card:

The text stamp of "You make me smile" was stamped inside of the card. I used the Inktense watercolor pencils to color the words with different colors. Then, I used the water brush to brush the colored words up and down to create this rainbow effect. I learned this cool technique from Clean & Simple Card Making 2 online class. Here is the photo taken from the inside of this card:

This card is also fit into the masculine challenge from Addicted to CAS (ATCAS #7). Here is the challenge:

Cardstocks: PTI (white), Stampin' Up (black)
Stamps: Plaid Barn, Technique Tuesday
Ink Pads: Stampin' Up (white), Archival ink pad (black)
