PaperCrafter's Corner #75 & Moxie Fab World

Hi Everyone!
Wow! Seventy five challenges. I haven't done all of them....but, I've done a quite a few. Always GREAT Inspiration. 
And, here's this week's inspiration:

I love all the TREES!
There is a Stampin Up set called 'Lovely as a Tree" that will eventually (hopefully) become part of my collection. Until then I have in Inkadinkadoo stamp that also features trees. I used it and a Unity stamp to create my card.

I stamped the trees with StazOn then used watercolors for the background. Once dry I added color to the trees by dotting with Sharpies. I believe the technique is called pointillism.
I'm also entering this card for the  Tree-mendous Tree Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
On the PCC blog Stephanie has a running series of posts about ORGANIZATION. Something we all need.I made an organizer a while ago from a cardboard box and patterned paper.
 It holds new washi, scissors, black ink, stickers, adhesives,all sorts of things. I have paper scraps with samples of the washi tape I keep stored in a box. I need to do something similar for my embossing folders.

Someone, I can't remember who, came up with the brilliant idea of using magnetic vent covers for holding metal dies. You can find them in Lowes & Home Depot. They're made by Frost King and sold in packs of 3-8x15 sheets.

I cut each sheet into 8x5 so one pack makes 9 sheets.

Hope to see your creations on  PCC soon!
