Minty Fresh

When I saw the Minty Fresh post on the Moxie Fab World blog:

I knew immediately what had to be done. I pulled out my PTI Polka Dot Basic set and stamped it several times onto a piece of SU Sage Shadow card stock. This is what came out:

The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Heyday Sentiments set, and the button is from an old stash of Tessa Ann buttons (

Then, since I've been doing literal interpretations of inspiration challenges these days, and because Sage Shadow is not really "mint" green, I went back into The Heaplet and found a remnant from these cards, and I made this:

FYI: I made that black button myself. :) I followed the tutorial at the Hero Club blog; it's crazy-easy, even easier than the buttons I've made before. I never bothered with the Glossy Accents to make them shiny since I'm too impatient to wait for it to dry, but these are flat so you can clear-emboss them. And I love the way she held the button with the tweezers while heating the EP. So smart!

In other news, yes, I know it's 5:30 am. I've been awake for two hours, so I decided it was time to be productive. This day will not end well.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I can't say I'm crazy about that dress, I like your cards much more!

  2. Green is my favorite color, maybe it is yours too?! I love the way your cards turned out, especially the second one. The small textured piece really catches the eye. Great job!

  3. Great take on the inspiration. Take a nap when you get home! :-)
