Friendship Preserves!

There were such BIG plans for the Friendship Preserves Stamp Set that have yet to see the light of day in my Studio. I was going to do so much baking so these stamps could be highlighted but perhaps using Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock might count also, lol. I know, I know, VERY bad segue but it had to be done! Bit like how only in the English language could the letters “ue” create the sound “way” – what’s with that? 🙂

However, I digress. This card all but created itself as the Fresh Prints DSP Stack even suggests for you on the cover what colors could be used with the DSP. How cool is that? And with the Window Collection Framelits creating a focal point for the stamp, then with the word “bunch” comes flowers so, well, there really wasn’t much to think about after that!

Peachy Keen Mojo

I’m admitting defeat NOW on today’s Mojo Monday since time is not my own this Spring Break. Instead this is a Mojo Monday that I did but never posted back in January. I know, VERY odd but true! Here was the sketch…

Mojo 329 SketchThis is my card…

Mojo 329 - Peachy Keen - JIF

To a background from the Fresh Prints DSP Stack, Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock and Coastal Cabana Cardstock were added. Onto the Coastal Cabana Cardstock was stamped repeatedly the strip of squares from the Peachy Keen Stamp Set with two strips of Baked Brown Sugar 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Ribbon adhered.

Flowering Flourishes in the Garden!

You know it’s Monday when you see one of the wonderful sketches from Mojo Monday appearing in your in-box. This is today’s sketch..

Mojo 336 - what will YOUR card look like?

For something a little different this week I went with a square card – this is it.

Mojo 336 - Flowering Flourishes in the Garden - JIF

This piece of DSP had been sitting on my table all week so decided today would be the perfect opportunity to utilize it. My base card was Very Vanilla Cardstock, onto this went Early Espresso Cardstock which had been stamped with Flowering Flourishes in Versamark then sponged in Early Espresso Classic Ink.  The Soho Subway DSP edges were sponged in Soft Suede Classic Ink before lengths of Baked Brown Sugar 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim was added then adhered to the Early Espresso Cardstock.

Instead of two circles I chose to do one of the Deco Labels Framelits in Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock which I sponged in Soft Suede Classic Ink. To this I added a 2-¾” Circle cut from the Circle Framelits in Very Vanilla Cardstock. Onto this I stamped-off one of the Flowering Flourishes stamps in Crumb Cake Classic Ink. The sentiment from Sassy Salutations was stamped in Early Espresso Classic Ink and in hindsight should have been placed more to the top instead of being centered. Oh well. At the time though I wasn’t going to add flowers!

From the Secret Garden Framelits in Pistachio Pudding Core’dinations four stems of leaves were cut and sponged VERY lightly with Crumb Cake Classic Ink. Onto this was added a single Flower Shop stamp in Crumb Cake Classic Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock then punched with the Pansy Punch. A Large Pearl Basic Jewel was added to the center of the flower.
