Yes, I do realize that might sound a trifle odd but if you are able to have somewhere to keep all your cardstock and DSP off-cuts, and also your “bits” of ribbon it’s well worth it. To cut into a full sheet of cardstock when all is required is a “bit”, well, it can bring tears to one’s eyes hence I keep everything as you never know!
Which brings me to this week’s Mojo Monday sketch.
This is my take on the sketch. The base of Whisper White has been layered with Always Artichoke which I’ve randomly stamped in Always Artichoke Classic Ink a stamp from the set A Round Array this then has the smallest frame of silver foil. A scrap of Silver Glimmer Paper was added, followed by a collection of ribbons and a framed sentiment.
What I’ve done is with the help of some sticky strip, have stuck all my scraps of red ribbon onto a scrap of cardstock. Yes, even the cardstock is a scrap as it was the cardstock in with the pack of dimensionals that were just finished. Waste not want not!
The sentiment seemed to take on a life of its own as first off I simply embossed it in silver powder before punching it out with the Decorative Label Punch but I couldn’t stop there! I then embossed a second one to punch out the oval sentiment then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. As it then happened I had some retired SU Decorative Labels sitting on my desk which framed the sentiment perfectly and voila!
