The Winners of the 75 Creative Card Challenges Week Challenges

Well, Moxie Fabbers, you've done it again--beguiled me with your creative approaches to our latest set of promotional week challenges in celebration of the release of this oh-so-inspiring special issue published by all of your friends here at Paper Crafts magazine:


Like the cover says, 75 Creative Card Challenges is filled with 293 inspiring card designs, but all y'all have, in my ever so humble opinion, added 628 more! I'd like to thank all of you for bringing it to this challenge, for click after click, card after card, I was in awe of the brilliant ways you approached the five challenges I put before you--making my job of narrowing it down to 10 winners sheer and utter agony.

So, without further ado, here are the winners of our 75 Creative Card Challenges Week Challenges!

The winners of the Use 10 Different Embellishments Challenge are:

Juggling Too Much? Card by Emily Keaton

Moxie Fab Alert: This is one of the most clever approaches to this challenge I could ever hope to have seen. Indeed, it's one of the most clever approaches to any card challenge I have ever seen, hands down, bar none, period.


Moxie Fab Alert: I moxie adore the way N@ has arranged her embellishments in rainbow array, both underlining the meaning of the sentiment, and providing an artistic approach to the challenge at hand.

The winners of the Make a Card with a Window Challenge are:


Moxie Fab Alert: Talk about a fantastically interactive, trendy, and cute use of a window! Bravo, Trinh! Bravo!


Moxie Fab Alert: The first card looks innocent enough, until you put it in front of a light source! Super clever, super fun, and super moxie fab!



Moxie Fab Alert: This card knocks my ever-livin' socks off! The colors Jaclyn has chosen are so striking, the pattern is so amazing (and it doesn't hoit that it's on a diagonal, either!), the sentiment font is so simply perfect, and the fact that she reached for die cuts rather than stamps to create her background paper has me oohing and aahing most indefinitely.


Moxie Fab Alert: Another stunning card, Michelle used the paper piecing technique to create this splendor of color and pattern on her background, making her simple sentiment focal point just the perfect touch.



Moxie Fab Alert: I was simply amazed at the variety of items with which you stamped, friends. Whether you used rubber bands, foam tape, a paper towel, a dish scrubber, a pencil eraser, lace, linoleum, a sponge, burlap, a rhinestone, the edge of a wastebasket, bubble wrap, the tines of a fork, card board, and even a bike tire, there was no shortage of creative approaches to this challenge. But believe it or not, Virginia created this beautiful card by stamping with Napa cabbage, of all things, with a most lovely effect!


Moxie Fab Alert: Maria created her stamp by running fun foam through her die cut machine. And while that is a clever (and easy!) way to create a stamp, I am even more in love with how she's used it. The soft colors beneath the window that reveals the black and white butterflies stamped inside is sheer poetry.

And last, but certainly not least, the winners of the Make an Itty Bitty Card Challenge are:


Moxie Fab Alert: There's just something about these bitty butterfly cards with their tiny ticket tags in their Valentine color scheme that makes me swoon!


Moxie Fab Alert: Super fun, super trendy, super great--what's not to love?

And there you have it, friends, our 10 winners. Once again, I'd like to thank every single one of you for giving this challenge a go! I had a BLAST looking through all the entries and congratulate you on a job moxie well done!

Winners, please send me your addresses in an email to cedvalson@papercraftsmag.com and I'll set you up with your "I'm Moxie Fab" challenge winning buttons for your blogs as well as a copy of 75 Creative Card Challenges!


Friends, I'd love to hear what you think about these inspiring cards. Simply leave me a comment by midnight EST on Sunday, February 10 and I'll send one random lucky something yummy from my moxie magical prize drawer!

5 down, 70 to go! *Wink!*
