Smoky Slate Stars Mojo!

Oh. My. Gosh. This week’s Mojo Monday Challenge came together so quickly that I had actually completed the card and its happy snaps before the tragically bad movie I was watching had finished. This is my card…

Mojo351Sketch - DSP Stars - JIFThis is the sketch by Mojo Monday for this week…

Mojo 351 Sketch

Once again the wonderful new DSP stacks, Moonlight and All Abloom made this card so darn easy as even though these two DSP’s were from different stacks, they worked together beautifully in the true style of Stampin’ Up!

The sentiment from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set was stamped in Blackberry Classic Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock then die-cut with the Banners Framelits, then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals onto Daffodil Delight Cardstock which also die-cut with the Banners Framelits.

Of course it seems no card of mine would be completed without a little something from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. With my die-cut of Whisper White Cardstock from the Circles Collection Framelits, I then stamped it in Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate and Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink.

A Rainbow Butterfly!

Last weeks card actually came about because of this card and its off-cuts – I tell you, there is VERY little that I waste – but aren’t these fringe scissors FUN! 🙂

Petite Petals in Rainbow!

This week I have been up to my eye-balls frantically attempting to get both children’s 2013 albums completed. For some crazy reason I actually thought I have them completed over the Easter long-week – ie Friday selecting and printing photos, Saturday adhering photos, ribbons and embellishments, and then on Monday compose and print-off all the journaling thus completing the albums. HA!

Anyways, as I snipped off the thin lengths of Silver Glitter Paper that I was using on each page of the albums (that’s 12 double-page lay-outs times two!), accumulating quite the pile of off-cuts, I began wondering what I could do with them. These silver lengths reminded me of flower stems and voila, the card created itself!

Enough frivolity however, I still have October, November, December and one holiday to construct so I best get back to it as I’d REALLY like to begin the journaling tomorrow so that perhaps, just perhaps, I could have these two albums completed by Sunday evening. Wish me luck!!!

What’s caught your… Quatrefancy!

I know, I know… really, really bad pun but I had to do it considering I was utilizing quite a bit you might say of the Quatrefancy DSP!

Anyways, here is my take on this week’s Mojo Monday (remember – clicking on their name will open you on their page where you can see some amazing creations!).

Live the Life Imagined - Mojo298

 This is the sketch and this month you one can choose either round or square. Obviously I’ve opted for square as I have yet to order my nesting circles. Next week I’m placing an order dear Inkee Fiddlers so if there’s anything you know you’ll need over the summer months (I’ll be away for most of August) please let me so that I may include your items in the order! Mojo299Sketch

 If you could see what I originally began with and what I finished with you’d laugh as the square design is the only thing remaining, even the color of the card base changed literally as I was about to stick the background down. I was determined Coastal Cabana was going to be my base but at the very last moment opted for Baked Brown Sugar which changed the feel immediately making it complete!

As much as I wanted brads on this card I did however want something a little different so chose brads from the Vintage Trinkets set that look like tiny, tiny buttons. I then proceeded to scruff them up a bit by sanding them, then adding just a little black pen to the center to dull them even further. The Pumpkin Pie strip was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder to take away its flatness.

Vintage Trinkets with a little smudging...

Due to my pledge of masculine cards, I felt I couldn’t add a flower so eventually punched branches from the Bird Builder Punch out of Crumb Cake before layering the branches directly on top of one another. To take away the starkness of the Crumb Cake I ever-so-gently sponged Cajun Craze over the branches to match the Cajun Craze I’ve used for the Dotted Scallop Ribbon.

Branches from the Bird Builder Punch

And yes, I know I’ve been told I “over layer” but like sponging, that’s who I am, I like, no I LOVE loads of layers. Besides, layering is also a FABULOUS way of using up off-cuts/scraps as I keep almost ALL my bits. This being the result – no wastage and loads of layers! 😉

Its layer upon layer upon layer upon layer...
