Sneakin' in the Mojo!

I totally did not plan to Mojo today but after taking a quick peek at the sketch my mind was changed. This sketch, by the uber talented Mary Fish, is spectacular! The size is 4x4 and is perfect for tucking into a little gift. I know exactly who this card is headed for...hope she loves it!
Oooh, these butterflies are just the best. They're making this card come to life, don't you think? The sweet pearls and gold embossing powder give this card the bling y'all know I need! ;)

Back to the featured Valentine's Week tomorrow!

Happy Thoughts of Mojo

Just a quick post for you today. It's busy, busy in my stamp studio getting ready for a team meeting on Thursday and some other fun classes and events I've got on the calendar. I did want to give you my take on the Mojo Monday sketch for today though so here it is.

I actually have a second design that I'm working on using this same sketch and will post it here later if time allows. In the meantime, why not make your own? Happy stamping!

Sneak Peek Week! - Day 1

Here we go! Get comfortable because you are in for a very special treat....little peeks of what is coming at ya in the new mini catalogue!

I didn't even know where to begin when selecting my stamp set for the first card, so I decided to use new paper and accessories instead. For those of you who know me, you konw I love me some accessories! And there is NO shortage in this still my heart! ;)

Without further ado let me present card #1:

This card features the new Springtime Vintage designer series paper. I loooove this paper! It says old Victorian home wallpaper and is so fabulous. Also, I've used the seam binding that we were introduced to in the Holiday Mini which has returned in even more new colours....woohoo! See those adorable little flowers? Love, love, love! They are so easy to stick on with glue dots and make the project just too cute!

The layout for this card is actually my take on today's Mojo Monday sketch which I've included for you here.

Getting excited? ME TOO!! Tomorrow will feature a new stamp set and even more gorgeous new paper.

Merry Mojo

Ready to mojo? This week gives you the option of round or square but I was in a square sort of mood. Remember, this is just a sketch to get you going and, as you can see by my card today, it doesn't have to look the same! I really had every intention of using stars and circles but after deciding on the Big on Christmas set went in a different direction.

Stampin' Tips:
  • Line art images like the ones in Big on Christmas are perfect for colouring with Stampin' Up's fabulous markers

  • Add dimension and interest with patterned paper and buttons

  • Making the bottom layer look like a wrapped Christmas gift adds a sweetness to this card.

Pretty Mojo

I apologize for being a day late to Mojo but yesterday was spent in my stamp room rolling out some cards and recovering from a very full and fun weekend.

The sketch this week gave me a bit of a hard time. I knew the colours I wanted to use but couldn't quite get them to work with the pattern. In the end though, I was completely thrilled with the finished card. What do you think?

The colours are Tangerine Tango, Poppy Parade and Old Olive with some white thrown in and all layered on a Crumb Cake base. This combination came straight from my colour coach and I would have never put them together on my own! If you don't have the colour coach already, it's a really great investment.

Oh baby, let's Mojo!

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had as fabulous a weekend as I did! Friday night I hosted a bachelorette party for my soon to be sister in law, went to bed and woke up 3 hours later to head off to the Stampin' Up! regionals in Hamilton. Had a BLAST there and then spent yesterday eating the most delicious cookies ever made thanks to my brother in law the chef. Then it was off to the rehearsal and delicious dinner for the wedding this weekend But wow, I am t-i-r-e-d today!

Anyways, on to the good stuff! It's Monday and that means I am forced to make a card by the time the day is over so here it is:

I have been wanting to use this new stamp set Baby Bundle ever since I got it but hadn't pulled it out yet so this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I love this sketch (as usual) and that always makes it so easy for the card to come together.

The base is Marina Mist cut at 5 1/2 x 11 to make a larger card than usual. I used Pear Pizzazz with the coordinating DSP and also Pretty In Pink for the layers. How totally adorable is that image?! Clear mount stamps make it super easy for you to line up all your images and get this collage of stamps that looks so amazing. I coloured the images with my Stampin' Write markers and I'm thrilled with the way it came out. The little hearts at the bottom were stamped and then punched out with small heart punch. I raised them up with dimensionals for some...well, dimension! :) The ribbon is Marina Mist and I 'heart' it so much!

Stamps: Baby Bundle (120576), Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370) Paper: Marina Mist (119682), Pear Pizzazz (119795), Pear Pizzazz DSP (117158), Pretty in Pink (100459) Ink: Stampin' Write Markers in Marina Mist (119679), Certainly Celery (105106), Pretty in Pink (100045) Cool Tools: Paper Piercer (116631), Mat Pack (105826), Small Heart punch (117193) Embellishments: 1 1/4" ribbon (119772)
