Burlap Grunge Mojo

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.

Mojo 365 Sketch

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.

Words Create a Background!

The Dictionary Background Stamp would have to be a favorite of mine. Yes, I am aware I say that a lot but I’m fairly certain I don’t say that about EVERY stamp, lol!

Using the Dictionary Background Stamp and the new Blendabilities I had a lot of fun with the next three cards.

Dictionary - Just for You - JIF

This next card is background on background with the beautiful Pleasant Poppies Stamp. The border of the Blackberry Bliss Cardstock came about by accident. I cut out a Top Note Die Cut leaving this wonderful negative space which I almost threw out but something stopped me. So glad I kept it! 🙂

Dictionary - Poppies - JIF

For this next card I used my Aqua Painters instead of the Blendabilities for a much lighter effect. The card I CASE’d from the Annual Catalog using the Flower Shop Stamp Set with coordinating Pansy Punch.

Dictionary - Pansies - JIF

Doesn’t the Linen Thread give a subtle yet beautiful finish to the last two cards?! I also trialed the new Gold Pen on this card, noice!

I’m placing orders tonight so if there’s anything you require please let me know today and I’ll add yours and fingers-crossed we’ll have them here by the end of next week!

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

It’s that time of the year again when I ask myself…

Oh WHY am I living on the SUNNY COAST???

We were so spoilt over the school holidays with overcast days almost EVERY day but alas, this week the clouds are only coming in at night leaving the skies bright and glaring all day. Which to the average person is simply delightful, but for me it’s a nightmare as all it does for me is bring on headaches and migraines. Not the best thing when you already know it’s less then 9 weeks to the Christmas school holidays… oh well, only another 230 days until winter. 🙁

I wonder how hard it would be to teach my body to work like that of a shift worker – to sleep during the day whilst the children are at school and the sun is at it’s brightest then come alive at night by the light of the silvery moon. The only down side would be Miss Seven would be with me every step of the way but hey, it’s food for thought!

So… given my slightly less then active day today I’ll show you two of the three Make and Takes we did at the Brisbane Regionals last month. Both these projects used the Every Moment stamp set. This is one of those sets that if it hadn’t been part of the registration package on the day I would NEVER had considered it but now that I have it, of course it’s a completely different matter! This is the first project…

Don’t you just love how the flowers come alive with the new Daffodil Delight Classic Ink and just the one small pearl jewel on each one? It’s so sweet with a smidge of Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon tied onto a wide clip. The card-stock believe it or not is Soft Suede but you’d never guess it having taken the photo at night, sorry. The second project is slightly different…


How cute is this and how simple. It’s the Fancy Favour box both bottom and top – the top simply has the bottom flaps cut off and placed over the box on the bottom as a lid. How easy is that, yet how effective?!

And guess what? It’s only 80 days ’til Christmas!!!

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