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.

Where’s my MOJO ?!

Not quite sure what’s going on with me at the moment but there always seems to be a reason NOT to be heading down into the Studio. Which is really sad when you consider I treated myself to a LOT of pre-order products from the new 2013-14 Idea Book and Catalog and want to do a lot MORE ordering… aaaahhhh!

So what’s a girl to do when her Mojo’s low? Check out Mojo Monday of course and I have to say, I’m rather chuffed with the end result!

Mojo 296 - Thinking of You

This is the sketch from Mojo Monday for this week.

Mojo296Sketch

Having printed off the sketch, I knew I wanted a patterned paper as my base so immediately went to the new Gingham Garden to find something. As soon as I saw this DSP with its wonderful colors I knew it would be the one as it seemed the perfect excuse to finally attempt the ribbon wrap flowers. The Summer Starfruit and Primrose Petals 3/8″ Satin Ribbon did the job beautifully as the stripes in the ribbon came out almost like spots!

Mojo 296 - Thinking of You - Ribbon Flower

All these lovely flowers needed a butterfly of course. Papillon Potpourri is my go-to stamp-set choice at present as it has a co-ordinating stamp for each the Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly Punch. LUV IT!!! Naturally I couldn’t resist adding some Pearl Basic Jewels and Dazzling Details and have it sitting on a 1-1/4″ Circle Scallop which I’ve also added a little dazzle too!

Mojo 296 - Thinking of you - Butterfly

The sentiment I chose is from the Hostess Set Express Yourself. I think is going to be my “go-to” sentiment set for this summer as there are 12 sentiments to choose from. Now I’m not sure if you noticed in the first photograph but on this strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I’ve used a stamp from the Clockworks set and stamped it off in the Pistachio Pudding to take away the starkness of the Very Vanilla.

Mojo 296 - Thinking of you - Sentiment

Well, I may not have completely found my Mojo but it feels a lot closer than it did earlier!
