Mingle All The Way Banners

Posted on

An important lesson was learnt on this card, there is only so much that the Blendabilities Color Lifter can do!

I was determined to use this Happy Holiday stamp as a banner with the Trim the Tree DSP Stack providing some colorful yet coordinated banners to accompany it. It’s been an age since I’ve created some paper ribbon but the top of these banners gave me the perfect opportunity.

Mingle All The Way

Posted on

Today’s 2-4-Tuesday is another from the Holiday Catty – Mingle All The Way Stamp Set. When you hear the name you immediately think of Christmas parties but today I chose two events occurring this month – Thanksgiving and Halloween. As much as I can’t believe I’m saying this but we’ll save Christmas for another time, lol!

The first card is my cryptic version of a turkey. I know I’ve said this before but I have to say I’m lovin’ how the Blendabilities Pens color the Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

For my Halloween card instead of the Pumpkin Pie Cardstock of above I used the Tangelo Twist Cardstock with the Filigree Embossing Folder . And just for a change I used some Pear Pizzazz Cardstock as my card base with some Back to Black DSP. The eyes are from a Word Window Punch cut in half and Basic Black Cardstock 1/4″ punched circle added.

Migraine Monday, oops, MOJO MONDAY!

Posted on

Sorry. I woke Friday morning with a throbbing head which is still hurting today. So apart from a doctor’s appointment which was already scheduled for that day, then dropping off Boy Child at a party on Saturday, I’ve pretty much been both PJ and bed bound.

My head is still not 100% but I daresay that has something more to do today with the salmon smoking which took place in our kitchen last night. The salmon tastes divine but the smoke residue still lingering in the air is doing absolutely NOTHING for my head.

Anyways, enough of my pity-party. With Canadian Thanksgiving being celebrated next month this is my card for today’s Mojo Monday sketch.

There was just SO MUCH white space on this weeks sketch which didn’t help my head at all. This is the MOJO MONDAY sketch for today. As you can see, not much deviation from the original at ALL today on my part.

Mojo 361 Sketch!

Of late I’ve rediscovered Sahara Sand Cardstock so with this as base I added a pattern from the Trim the Tree DSP Stack in darker tones. Then added a much lighter pattern from the Moonlight DSP Stack. Some Pumpkin Pie Chevron Ribbon completing the base.

For my square on the right I went with a base of Early Espresso Cardstock with Tangelo Twist Cardstock on top of that. First I stamped, also in Tangelo Twist Classic Ink, two of the houses from the Holiday Home Stamp Set, then on top of that stamped in Early Espresso Classic Ink a stamp from the Mingle All the Way Stamp Set. Finishing off the square with stamped leaves also from the Holiday Home Stamp Set.

With Thanksgiving in mind, I chose to stamp two of the feathers from the Four Feathers Stamp Set. The larger in Early Espresso Classic Ink on Early Espresso Cardstock, the smaller feather in Soft Suede Classic Ink on Soft Suede Cardstock. I then used the co-ordinating Feathers Framelits Dies to cut them. Sponging both with Crumb Cake Classic Ink before adhering.
