With the end of the school year quickly approaching I’m finding it extremely difficult to keep on top of things. This includes a HUGE box of retired items – stamps, punches, ink pads, etc that I have FOR SALE that require listing. Goodness knows when that will be happening, hopefully soon as I keep adding more and more items to the box!
Anyways, its Monday so there’s a fresh MOJO Monday – here’s my interpretation. I’m loving this Soho Subway DSP which is even better in the flesh than in the book if that’s possible!
This is this week’s sketch which instantly had the creative juices flowing albeit like a broken fire-hydrant, there was no particular direction for this flow…
I was trying my darnedest to make a masculine card, being Father’s Day this Sunday I was going to kill two birds with one stone, but then the circle scallops were doing my head in… I panicked… and I added flowers made from the Boho Blossom Punch with the all new gorgeous Strawberry Slush. Strawberry Slush… so NOT masculine 🙂
The square section for me resulted in more of a rectangle which was perfect sizing in the end for the Thank You stamp from the Morning Meadows stamp set. I inked up well for the first stamping in Raspberry Ripple then continued stamping without re-inking, or as its sometimes called, stamped-off, the sentiment.
I’ve also used the branch stamp set on the background of Always Artichoke in Always Artichoke Classic Ink so there was a little detail to be found but not overwhelmingly so.
FYI: Morning Meadows is a fabulous Hostess Set. Remember when hosting a party, once your sales reach $200 you will be eligible for your choice of Hostess Stamp Sets at a wonderfully discounted rate… just a little more incentive to host a party!
