Friendship Preserves!

Posted on

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!

Mojo Monday

Posted on

It would appear I left more than my jeans in Vancouver last week as my Mojo appears to have slipped under the hotel bed also I fear! 🙁

Here is this week’s Mojo Monday sketch which is Tall and Skinny – which is so NOT me. I’m finding this size so extremely difficult to work with. Hence the reason it’s now Tuesday Wednesday Thursday and I’m only just getting there…

Mojo 339 SketchI took one look at this on Monday after printing it off and put it straight back down again; Tuesday I did everything BUT look at it; Wednesday I spent the ENTIRE day alternating between looking at the sketch and looking at Robert Downey Jr (the latter seemingly holding my attention longer…) and then there’s today. This is what I finally came up with and have decided in future no matter what the title, I’m sticking with what I know best – short and squat, lol! Mojo339 - Fresh Prints - JIF

Originally I was going with Whisper White as my base but after three days when I FINALLY changed to the Natural Ivory Cardstock, all was better with the world. For the DSP I chose two from the Fresh Prints Stack, sponging them in Crumb Cake Classic Ink. For the embellishments I went with three Basic Metal Buttons from the Celebrate the Everyday Catalog finished with Linen Thread.

Mojo339 - Metal Buttons - JIFYou may or may not be able to see on the base of the card in VersaMark are Spiral Swirl Stamps to add texture to the base, carrying through with the circles from the bike.

Mojo339 - Sprial Swirls - JIFThe oval was swapped out for a Deco Label in Real Red Cardstock. The 2¾” circle is from the Circle Framelits in Very Vanilla Cardstock but was first stamped in Crumb Cake Classic Ink with a stamp from the Postage Due Stamp Set. Both were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals with White Candy Dots completing the label after sponging.

Mojo339 - Hello Lovely - JIFFor the sentiment after stamping in Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink a stamp from the Hello, Lovely Stamp Set, I cut it down, sponged it, then added it to a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock cut slightly bigger and also sponged. The two triangles were cut from a scrap from the Fresh Prints DSP Stack.

Word Bubbles en masse!

Posted on

Seriously (seriously, I have to find another word other than seriously, and find it soon, lol) how cute is the Just Saying’ Bundle of Stamp Set and Framelits? At first I was only thinking of using them with photos until I had a “play” and created this!

Word Bubbles - JIF

This card is so basic with the Fresh Print DSP as the background and some Early Espresso Cardstock trims. These trims were actually scraps from another card – I tell you – WASTE NOTHING – but hey, I think the overall effect is fun and fabulous. Wouldn’t this make a great children’s card?!

Eggstra Spectacular!

Posted on

With Spring Break almost over it’s now time to begin preparations for Easter. I can never work out if it’s a good thing or a bad thing when Easter falls in late April.

Whatever the dates for Easter though, cards are still required and what better set is there then the gorgeous set in the Occasions Catty, the Eggstra Spectacular Stamp Set (yup, I may just have kicked the Spring Catty habit but no promises, lol!) ! Seriously, how cute is this?

Eggstra Spectacular - the cutest Easter set EVER!

With a couple of items which are still available from Sale-a-Bration, combined with paper from the  Fresh Prints DSP Stack, the end result is the cutest Easter card!

 Then for some reason I once AGAIN (even I’m beginning to get tired of this) reached for the Summer Starfruit Cardstock, pairing it with the Silver Heat Embossing – making it very regal indeed!

My next card actually came together quite by accident as there were a couple of the tags from the Sale-a-Bration Designer Banner Kit on my table and, well… this goes with this goes with this and voila! How cute is that little bunny I ask you? 🙂 Eggstra Spectacular - Banner Kit - JIF

As you can see, that Designer Banner Kit is quite versatile so if you haven’t obtained one for yourself yet, there’s still just under a week before 2014 Sale-a-Bration concludes so please, PLEASE call me today to place your order – 250-632-7248.

Peachy Keen Mojo

Posted on

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.

Mojo 329 - Background - JIFThe embellishments were a lot of fun using two of the hearts from the Essential Wooden Elements and a die-cut camera from the On Film Framelits Dies which I lightly sponged over to emphasize the scored design of the card. Too cute!
