You’re Lovely Washi Tape

A quick card doesn’t mean a card need lose any of its charm and I think this card exemplifies this beautifully. The urge to add a border of Primrose Petals or Melon Mambo Cardstock under the Whisper White Cardstock is still great but so far I’ve resisted! 🙂

Tag It quickly on a Friday!

Yesterday was spent down in the Studio. It was lovely to be down there once again but even with an early start, it took almost six hours before I found my groove once again. Then again, it didn’t help that previously I’d been working on our Christmas cards which were here, there and everywhere on my desk. Initially I chose not to move them for “expediency” sake. What a mistake!

Alas, today wasn’t much better as I left the Studio in a complete upheaval last night but unlike yesterday, today I have begun the slow process of returning everything to where it once belong. Or in some instances I’ve even had to begin creating new homes so I can find them next time. I can see many large wooden stamp cases being on my next order so I can begin keeping everything together!

As a matter of fact, I’m still plodding along with the clean-up but in the process was able to create a quick card as I wanted to feel as if I’d accomplished something at least. What do you think of this for something quick and easy?

Tag It Celebrate - JIF

The Tag It Stamp Set is fabulous for more than one reason. Besides the fact most of the tags co-ordinate with the Chalk Talk Framelits Dies and that these tags cover so many occasion, there’s also the fact that $3 from this stamp set is donated to Ronald McDonald house. Love it!

Today I had fun with the CELEBRATE tag, coloring most everything in a different color with Stampin’ Markers. The Washi Tape added even more color and then for a smidge of bling I mist the Whisper White cardstock with Smooch Spritz and also covered a line of Sticky Strip with the Orange Glitter from the Holiday Catalog. I wanted to prove to myself I could use this for something other than Halloween!

What day is it???

Where does the time go? It’s almost time for the new MOJO Monday and I’m only just completing and posting this one. Good grief but… notice how I’ve managed to keep my pledge of creating masculine cards each week with this challenge.!

Really Good Greetings - FINALLY!

This is this week’s Mojo sketch.

I wanted numbers on this card so reached for the Soho Subway DSP. Finding a contrasting color for the numbers was a no-brainer as all I needed to do was flip the paper. How easy is that?! As you may have also sensed, I can’t seem to get enough of the new burlap ribbon and don’t even get me started on the Hung Up Cute Clips – LOVE THEM ALL!

Lovin' the new embellishments!

For a little something different I used some of the stickers from the “This and That” designer collection. All the stickers in that set are so cute and although are more for the journal, can obviously be used elsewhere. Add a sentiment from the Really Good Greetings stamp set and voila!

Just a little "this and that"!

CARD RECIPE
Card-Stock: Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Suede, Natural Ivory, Chocolate Chip
Stamp Set:
Really Good Greetings
Classic Ink: Early Espresso, Island Indigo & Baked Brown Sugar (for sponging)

MOJO Monday!

With the end of the school year quickly approaching I’m finding it extremely difficult to keep on top of things. This includes a HUGE box of retired items – stamps, punches, ink pads, etc that I have FOR SALE that require listing. Goodness knows when that will be happening, hopefully soon as I keep adding more and more items to the box!

Anyways, its Monday so there’s a fresh MOJO Monday – here’s my interpretation. I’m loving this Soho Subway DSP which is even better in the flesh than in the book if that’s possible!

Morning Meadow - Mojo297 - JIF

This is this week’s sketch which instantly had the creative juices flowing albeit like a broken fire-hydrant, there was no particular direction for this flow…

I was trying my darnedest to make a masculine card, being Father’s Day this Sunday I was going to kill two birds with one stone, but then the circle scallops were doing my head in… I panicked… and I added flowers made from the Boho Blossom Punch with the all new gorgeous Strawberry Slush. Strawberry Slush… so NOT masculine 🙂

Morning Meadow - Mojo297 - JIF - Boho Blossoms

The square section for me resulted in more of a rectangle which was perfect sizing in the end for the Thank You stamp from the Morning Meadows stamp set. I inked up well for the first stamping in Raspberry Ripple then continued stamping without re-inking, or as its sometimes called, stamped-off, the sentiment.

I’ve also used the branch stamp set on the background of Always Artichoke in Always Artichoke Classic Ink so there was a little detail to be found but not overwhelmingly so.

Morning Meadow - Mojo297 - JIF - Thank You
