You Make Me Happy!

It’s Mojo Monday time and here is this week’s sketch…

Mojo 335 SketchThis is my take on the sketch. As you can see, with the countdown on until the end of Sale-a-Bration this month, I’m making the most of all the wonderful selections there are this year!

Mojo 335 - You Make me Happy - JIFThe three stripes I had created for last weeks challenge and after spending an hour this afternoon looking for just the right color, decided this was what the card needed as I didn’t really want a girlie-girl card. And of course this all had to be run through the Sale-a-Bration’s Decorative Dots Embossing Folder!

Onto the Basic Gray Cardstock I stamped with Basic Gray Classic Ink the arrow from the Petals Parade Stamp Set. I also used the semi-circle “leaf-like” stamp from this set for the Summer Starfruit Cardstock background.

Mojo 335 - Petal Parade Background - JIFThe leaves I punched in Pistachio Pudding Core’dinations from the Bird Builder Punch then did some accordion folding with a strip of the Pistachio to create the Paper Ribbon. The finishing touch was a cork flower from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Kit from which I also added a couple of the arrow pieces to the sentiment. This too is from Sale-a-Bration, the See Ya Later Stamp Set which I stamped and sponged in Summer Starfruit Classic Ink.

Oh Hello all that Glitters!

Oh my, I look at this card now and I feel like that Swedish cook from the Muppet’s who was always saying “layer upon layer upon layer”, or was that an old Australian television commercial I was thinking of? Either way, when I look at this card now all I see are layers!

Whisper White base with a Black layer to border what was once¬† a Whisper White pieces of cardstock until I spritzed it with Rich Razzleberry. Isn’t it incredible how it dilutes to a gorgeous soft pink? Onto this I’ve then spritzed some of the Vanilla Shimmer (page 164 – check it out!).

Oh Hello you Primrose Petal Rose you!

Then to these layers I’ve added two different sets of layers. The first being the stamped rose in Primrose Petal from the Oh Hello stamp set which had just the smallest amount of Dazzling Diamonds glued to the petal edges. The edges of the Whisper White cardstock have been inked directly from the sponge pad before being adhered to a border of Basic Gray on top of the Black. Pearl jewels adding a smidge of elegance.

Then to each edge of a strip of Sliver Glimmer Paper (page 156 – my current favorite!) I’ve used Strawberry Slush 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim and a Large Pearl Jewel on either edge. So simple yet effective!

OOh hello you glittery thing!

A very girlie card so perhaps having loads of layers then is apt… perhaps!
