Happy Umpteenth Mojo!

Wednesday, Monday, it’s all the same, it’s a day! So here I am, on a Wednesday, making my Monday card and posting it as if it’s Monday just to keep the routine, lol!

Here’s the card I’ve created for this week’s Mojo Monday Challenge.

Mojo359 - Happy Umpteenth Mojo - JIFThis is the Mojo Monday sketch if you haven’t already seen it.

Mojo 359 Sketch

On printing this sketch this morning I wasn’t anticipating any delays as lots of ideas were whirling around in my mind. Unfortunately the one thing NOT whirling around was the background that was going to be my starting point.

Three hours and three different backgrounds later I was finally underway with a pattern from the Park Lane DSP with the smallest border of Meadow Moss Cardstock. Onto this a pattern from the Moonlight DSP Stack. Onto that a small piece of Meadow Moss Cardstock which I stamped in Meadow Moss Classic Ink with a stamp from the Work of Art Stamp Set which I now wish I’d sponged.

The sentiment came from the Oh My Goodies Stamp Set, stamped in Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink then die-cut with the Deco Label Collection. I cut another framelit in the larger size in Blackberry Bliss Cardstock for underneath. A small banner in Hello Honey Cardstock, lightly sponged in Hello Honey Classic Ink was also added. Ribbon in Blackberry Bliss was the final touch for this area.

To the top right-hand corner three Basic Rhinestones Jewels were added. These I colored with the darkest Old Olive Blendabilities.

How much do YOU know?!

What I know is that I have spent an ENTIRE afternoon doing what should have been a very QUICK card using scraps, only to complete the card using NOTHING of which I began with.

It did however use the Friends Who Know Stamp which I’ve been meaning to use so that at least was something, lol! For the colored chalk effect I chose to use the Blendabilities so that when I went outside the lines, it wouldn’t leave a darker shade as markers can sometimes do. This is my card.

All Abloom with Hope

Have you checked out the Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp Set yet on page 240? It is fabulous with so many possibilities. Here are just three cards I made using this set this afternoon.

Bloom with Hope - All Abloom - JIF

I’ve promised myself that next week I will begin looking at my 12×12 DSP’s and give my DSP stacks a rest but when one scrapbooks one is hesitant in cutting into a big sheet, ouch! And as you may have noticed with the flower above, I still have a love/hate relationship going on with the Blendabilities, lol! 🙂

Bloom with Hope - Sympathy - JIF

For the next card I’ve used the leaf stamp to create a background, then kept the flower stamp rather plain that I adhered onto it. This image I stamped twice, colored with the Blendabilities then fussy-cut the two open flowers. Before adhering these flowers I gently shaped the petals up to give it a little more depth.
