Burlap Grunge Mojo

Posted on

Sadly I think it’s more than apparent that my Mojo has upped and left this week seeing as it’s now Wednesday and I’m only JUST getting to my Mojo Monday. 🙁

Here is my card – freakin’ Tall and Skinny this week – ugh!

Mojo 365 - Burlap Grunge - JIF

The background on the Whisper White Cardstock is made up of Soft Suede Classic Ink, Hello Honey Classic Ink and Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink that has been flicked from the end of an Aqua Painter. And being me, this has been bordered with Soft Suede Cardstock, Hello Honey Cardstock and Rich Razzleberry Cardstock.

Oh, and here is this week’s Mojo Monday challenge.

Across the top of the card is 1-1/4″ Burlap Ribbon from which the banners of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock, Soft Suede Cardstock and Hello Honey Cardstock that have been stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set sit.

For All Things Mojo

Posted on

Dang, I know I’ve used these colors before AND for a Mojo Monday but Blackberry Bliss and Smoky Slate are just SUCH a beautiful color combination. Here is my card for today’s Mojo Monday Challenge!

Mojo 364 - For All Things - JIF

And this was today’s Mojo Monday Sketch. As you can see, I chose to go portrait instead of horizontal and I just wasn’t “feelin’ ” it with the horizontal, lol! 🙂

Plus it looks as if I’ve shot myself in the foot as I had this set, For All Things Stamp Set, out on my desk as I need to design a Make and Take for an upcoming workshop. In retrospect perhaps I should have saved this card for that and made something else for today. Oh well!

This set always scares me for just the briefest of moments as I tend to forget the stamps have a very “linen” look about them. This gives a great effect which is particularly good for creating backgrounds as I did with the leaf, stamping in Smoky Slate Classic Ink onto Smoky Slate Cardstock.

The stamping under my leaves was one of those wonderful freakish things I hadn’t planned but worked to my advantage. Either I hadn’t cleaned, or hadn’t cleaned very well, this stamp from the last time I used it causing some of the Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink to blend with my Smoky Slate Classic Ink. Combined with the linen look of the stamp I’d say whatever happened, happened VERY well!

Tickled Pink Mojo

Posted on

When I first saw this week’s Mojo Monday sketch I was a tad hesitant but on looking at it again today, oh my gosh, it took absolutely NO time at all. This is my card.

Mojo362 - Flamingo Lingo - JIF

This is the sketch.

Mojo 362 SketchFor something different for my background I chose Brushed Silver Cardstock which I embossed with the Decorative Dots Embossed Folder. Then onto my cut Whisper White Cardstock I heat embossed one of the stamps from the Flamingo Lingo Stamp Set.

Over this I sponged Melon Mambo Classic Ink then stamped the flamingo in Melon Mambo Classic Ink onto a banner of Whisper White Cardstock.

After adhering this onto the Melon Mambo background I tied 1/8″ Silver Ribbon and 1/2″ Pink Pirouette Seam Binding Ribbon around the top then added the stamped banner Tickled Pink.

If you aren’t already aware Flamingo Lingo is this year’s Ronald McDonald House Stamp Set. So not only is it a super versatile stamp set but $3 from every stamp set sold goes towards the Ronald McDonald House Program. How wonderful is that?

Chalk Talk Abloom Mojo!

Posted on

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.

Mojo357 - Chalk Talk Abloom - JIF

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.

Mojo 357 Sketch

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!

Mojo357 - Chalk Talk Abloom - Dazzling Details - JIF

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.

Mojo357 - Chalk Talk Abloom - Layered Butterfly - JIF

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.

Mojo with a Tangelo Twist!

Posted on

Oh yeah, Mojo Monday gave us one of THOSE cards again. You know the one, Tall and Skinny, oh how I despise it but I now have a new challenger in the house spurring me on, Girl Child. I say, bring it on! This is my card.

MojoSketch352 - Tangelo Twist  - JIFThis is the sketch this week from Mojo Monday.

MojoSketch352The base for my card today is Natural Ivory Cardstock. I don’t have many opportunities to utilize this cardstock but today I wanted to use the Tangelo Twist Cardstock which just happened to work beautifully with it.

The only stamp set I used was the magical Work of Art Stamp Set. As you can see I was able to create four different backgrounds from it simply using the Tangelo Twist Classic Ink. PLUS it has the most delightful sentiment – talk about value for money!

Smoky Slate Stars Mojo!

Posted on

Oh. My. Gosh. This week’s Mojo Monday Challenge came together so quickly that I had actually completed the card and its happy snaps before the tragically bad movie I was watching had finished. This is my card…

Mojo351Sketch - DSP Stars - JIFThis is the sketch by Mojo Monday for this week…

Mojo 351 Sketch

Once again the wonderful new DSP stacks, Moonlight and All Abloom made this card so darn easy as even though these two DSP’s were from different stacks, they worked together beautifully in the true style of Stampin’ Up!

The sentiment from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set was stamped in Blackberry Classic Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock then die-cut with the Banners Framelits, then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals onto Daffodil Delight Cardstock which also die-cut with the Banners Framelits.

Of course it seems no card of mine would be completed without a little something from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. With my die-cut of Whisper White Cardstock from the Circles Collection Framelits, I then stamped it in Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate and Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink.

Moonlight Lagoon Mojo Monday!

Posted on

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!

Mojo Monday 350 - Moonlight Lost Lagoon - JIF

And this is this week’s Mojo Sketch 350.

Mojo350Sketch

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!

Mojo350 - Moonlight Lost Lagoon - Bling Embellishments - JIF

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.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Lost Lagoon, So Saffron
Stamp Sets: Gorgeous Grunge, Chalk Talk
Classic Inks: Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey
Punches: Triangle, X-Large Oval
