Going for Gold!

Today is Monday which means it’s Mojo Monday time, ready? Here is the sketch…

Mojo 340 SketchAnd here is my take on the sketch which certainly didn’t take me all week to find inspiration for this one. I was out of the starting blocks and running with it in no time at all thanks to the Washi Tape! My card base is Very Vanilla Cardstock with a layer of Primrose Petals Cardstock under the Gold Foil embossed with the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder.

Mojo 340 - Going for Gold - JIFThe gold Washi Tape or as it’s referred to in the Celebrate the Everyday Catty, Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape, was my inspiration for this card. The tape was taken with me to the crop hoping to finally use it, which I didn’t, but as soon as I saw today’s sketch I knew it could be used! Onto a piece of Vanilla Cardstock I arranged and rearranged the Washi Tape finishing it with a piece of Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon.Mojo 340 - Going for Gold - Washi Tape -JIF

The 1¾” circle is Champagne Glimmer Paper, the 1¼” circle is Gingham Garden DSP, and the 1″ circle was punched from Primrose Petals Cardstock then stamped in Gold Metallic Encore with a stamp from the A Round Array Stamp Set. The banner, also in Primrose Petals Cardstock was sponged and stamped also in Gold Metallic Encore with a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. A sentiment from the Loving Thoughts Stamp Set was heat embossed in gold.

FYI: The end of next month (May) will see the retirement of the 2012-2014 In-Colors of Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple (favorites of mine for Christmas, just sayin’), Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse and Primrose Petals. I know a few of you have already begun stocking piling these colors but it’s best to do this sooner rather than later, particularly if you require Ink Refills for your inks!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

Perfect Party Butterflies!

This was the Make & Take made at my first Sale-a-Bration Workshop for 2014 and as an added treat for each guest, for each card I used a different colored ribbon and matching butterflies. Dang, if only I’d taken a photo of all the different cards as they were just so pretty!

And by making them all different colors what a great gift for a family member or a friend. You could even go so far as putting a different sentiment on each one!

Gingham Garden Butterflies

When I first saw today’s Mojo Challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do. This is today’s sketch for Mojo 331.

Mojo 331 SketchOf course what I created was something completely different to what I had in mind. Not that I’m unhappy with what I achieved, it’s simply NOTHING like what I had in mind. This is it…

Mojo 331 - Gingham Butterflies - JIF

For the Decorative Dots Embossing I used White Vellum then cut a banner from the Gingham Garden DSP which was lined with some Primrose Petals Cardstock. A strip of Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon lies diagonally between the embossing and the cardstock.

Mojo 331 - Gingham Butterflies - Hello

The square of cardstock to go under the sentiment I chose in So Saffron then stamped in So Saffron Classic Ink with a stamp from the Sale-a-Bration You’re Lovely set. The stamp is a clean set of four little flower-like images but I stamped it randomly albeit always horizontally. The butterflies come from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits. Both the butterflies and the Hello sentiment from the Label Something Stamp Set have been edged with Dazzling Details.

Mojo 331 - Gingham Butterflies - Candy Dots

Across the top of the banner I’ve added some Tempting Turquoise Candy Dots (I thought I was adding Island Indigo but wasn’t if close, ha)just for a little something extra.
