Stars for You

The inspiration for this card came from Michelle Last over in the UK. It was perfect as it was just what I wanted for a Shaker Card.

On a base of Crumb Cake Cardstock, dry embossed stars also with Crumb Cake Cardstock were framed with Very Vanilla Cardstock. I then Silver Heat Embossed two stamps from the Chalk Talk Stamp Set. Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Baker’s Twine finishing off the card before I adhered the Shaker Frame.

For the Shaker Frame a piece of Window Sheet was cut to size then adhered to the top piece where a 1-3/8″ Circle was punched. Onto the bottom embossed piece a 1-1/2″ foam Shaker Frame was attached. I then added my Silver Foil Stars I punched with the Confetti Stars Punch.

Chalk Talk Abloom Mojo!

This Summer Vacation has been one of our best but it’s playing havoc with my schedule. Seriously, I often don’t know what day of the week it, with one day slipping into another, oops! So finally, here is my card for this week’s Mojo Monday.

Here is the sketch. This week’s sketch I thought was going to be SOOO easy but once I began assembling the card it proved much harder and took MUCH longer than I thought (and hoped)! DSP from the All Abloom DSP Stack was my spring-board.

I was determined to use the new Dotty Angles Photopolymer Stamp Set and for same strange, strange reason challenged myself to use the heat and stick powder with it for the background. It gives the right effect when combined with Dazzling Diamonds but I still need to practice with it… a LOT, lol!

The leaves are from the new Flower Fair Framelit Set. In hindsight I wish I’d used the co-ordinating stamp from the Flower Shop Stamp Set to stamp over it – next time. The butterfly was made from two Butterfly Punches – the Elegant Butterfly in Silver Foil Paper, the Bitty Butterfly in Silver Glimmer Paper.

The sentiment is from the Chalk Talk Stamp Set and cut with the co-ordinating Chalk Talk Framelit. I stamped it with Melon Mambo Classic Ink onto  Shimmery White Cardstock which you can just see coming through the pink. Noice! The Silver 5/8″ Satin Ribbon was doubled over then adhered JUST under the cardstock, then tied off with some 1/8″ Silver Ribbon. All the ends of the ribbon have double-sided tape on it assuring they stay in place.

For You Blended Bloom!

The new Blended Bloom Stamp is proving to be a favorite of mine when I want to dress-up a plain base color. A splash of Smoky Grey Classic Ink provides the perfect accompaniment for the stamp.

Stamp onto Pink Pirouette Cardstock, add a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels and you’re onto a winner for certain. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I seem to be rather partial to the good old Chalk Talk Stamp Set and Framelits!

Moonlight Lagoon Mojo Monday!

As the saying goes… better late than never!

Here it is Saturday and it is only now that I have been able to choose the “right” sentiment for my Mojo Monday card for this week. Or as a good friend has now rechristened it, Mojito Monday – no guessing why we’re friends huh? Lol!

Here is my card using one of the Moonlight DSP’s as my base and my feature. The base with a thin border of Smoky Slate Cardstock and the side pieces with a thin border of 2014-2016 In-Color Hello Honey Cardstock. The center circles and sentiment are all with the new 2014-2016 In-Color Lost Lagoon, noice!

And this is this week’s Mojo Sketch 350.

The new 2014-2016 In-Color Lost Lagoon worked brilliantly with these colors but looked a little bland against the patterns of the base. With the help of a little bling in the form of the small Basic Rhinestone Jewels to create a border (oh how I love those borders), a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set, and some Silver 1/8″ Ribbon, all that was changed!

Trying to come up with an embellishment other than a flower did have me thinking for more than a few moments but the Triangle Punch, a carry-over from the Everyday Occasions Catty, quickly solved THAT problem. Two triangles placed at right-angles on top of two others created a wonderful “space-like” embellishment.

Chalk Talk Grunge!

On seeing this week’s Mojo Monday sketch, I knew there would be no hesitation on this one as I wanted to use Cajun Craze Cardstock as the background. To this was stamped Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Classic Ink which I used to also sponge the edges.

When this color was first introduced to Stampin’ Up! I couldn’t get enough of it but hadn’t touched it again until today. Today I used it as not only the background for my card but for the shapes/accents as well!

Mojo341SketchMatching colors with Cajun Craze Cardstock can sometimes be interesting but as you can see on this occasion I simply went with Champagne Glimmer Paper and Gold Foil which was run through the Dots Embossing Folder. The Gold Foil I also sponged with Gold Encore Ink.

The shapes/accents were Heat Embossed with Gold Embossing Powder – the square I stamped with Versamark the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set, the circle stamped with the Chalk Talk Stamp Set. The Gold Foil circle was cut with a Circle Framelit as I wanted only a HINT of a border, not a lot of gold.
