Mojo with a Tangelo Twist!

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!

Going for Gold!

Today is Monday which means it’s Mojo Monday time, ready? Here is the sketch…

Mojo 340 SketchAnd here is my take on the sketch which certainly didn’t take me all week to find inspiration for this one. I was out of the starting blocks and running with it in no time at all thanks to the Washi Tape! My card base is Very Vanilla Cardstock with a layer of Primrose Petals Cardstock under the Gold Foil embossed with the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder.

Mojo 340 - Going for Gold - JIFThe gold Washi Tape or as it’s referred to in the Celebrate the Everyday Catty, Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape, was my inspiration for this card. The tape was taken with me to the crop hoping to finally use it, which I didn’t, but as soon as I saw today’s sketch I knew it could be used! Onto a piece of Vanilla Cardstock I arranged and rearranged the Washi Tape finishing it with a piece of Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon.Mojo 340 - Going for Gold - Washi Tape -JIF

The 1¾” circle is Champagne Glimmer Paper, the 1¼” circle is Gingham Garden DSP, and the 1″ circle was punched from Primrose Petals Cardstock then stamped in Gold Metallic Encore with a stamp from the A Round Array Stamp Set. The banner, also in Primrose Petals Cardstock was sponged and stamped also in Gold Metallic Encore with a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. A sentiment from the Loving Thoughts Stamp Set was heat embossed in gold.

FYI: The end of next month (May) will see the retirement of the 2012-2014 In-Colors of Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple (favorites of mine for Christmas, just sayin’), Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse and Primrose Petals. I know a few of you have already begun stocking piling these colors but it’s best to do this sooner rather than later, particularly if you require Ink Refills for your inks!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
