2 cards w/ Kreaxions & Moxxie

I am super excited to announce that I've joined the Just Imagine Kreaxions punch team!
My first post went up over the weekend and now I wanted to share here.

I have 2 cards for you.

This first card is a baby card, but with St. Patty's right around the corner I thought it would be fun to give it a "lucky" theme. I started with a white cardstock background, then used the Kreaxions #311 punch along the top and bottom of the green paper from Moxxie's Winery line, after I splattered it with a bit of green mist. I did the corner punches first, then, eyeballing it, I could tell that I wouldn't have room for 3 full punches across, but I didn't want to leave a ton of space along there either. So I decided to use the dots on either side of the flower to help me line up the punches to fit 3 along each end. Just turn the punch upside down, start in the middle and work your way out.

Next I used the wood grain pattern under my sentiment block. I used Kreaxions #901 Butterfly punch for this. I didn't use any of the positioning pieces. Again I just turned the punch upside down to see where I was punching my paper. Then, because I just wanted that fun pointed border for this card I covered the butterfly and bursts with the lighter green sentiment block.
From there I hand cut some hearts to make a clover, then added some Moxxie alphas and stamped my sentiment.

Next I have a birthday card for you. Using the same Winery line and white cs base, I used Kreaxions #309 punch along the bottom of the green pp.

I added some purple inking around the papers to make them pop a little more and even inked the flower punch outs from the back a bit to make them pop a little more.
I finished up with some stickers & barcode strip from the line and then added the fun stamp sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
