Chalk Talk Abloom Mojo!

This Summer Vacation has been one of our best but it’s playing havoc with my schedule. Seriously, I often don’t know what day of the week it, with one day slipping into another, oops! So finally, here is my card for this week’s Mojo Monday.

Here is the sketch. This week’s sketch I thought was going to be SOOO easy but once I began assembling the card it proved much harder and took MUCH longer than I thought (and hoped)! DSP from the All Abloom DSP Stack was my spring-board.

I was determined to use the new Dotty Angles Photopolymer Stamp Set and for same strange, strange reason challenged myself to use the heat and stick powder with it for the background. It gives the right effect when combined with Dazzling Diamonds but I still need to practice with it… a LOT, lol!

The leaves are from the new Flower Fair Framelit Set. In hindsight I wish I’d used the co-ordinating stamp from the Flower Shop Stamp Set to stamp over it – next time. The butterfly was made from two Butterfly Punches – the Elegant Butterfly in Silver Foil Paper, the Bitty Butterfly in Silver Glimmer Paper.

The sentiment is from the Chalk Talk Stamp Set and cut with the co-ordinating Chalk Talk Framelit. I stamped it with Melon Mambo Classic Ink onto  Shimmery White Cardstock which you can just see coming through the pink. Noice! The Silver 5/8″ Satin Ribbon was doubled over then adhered JUST under the cardstock, then tied off with some 1/8″ Silver Ribbon. All the ends of the ribbon have double-sided tape on it assuring they stay in place.

Mojo with a Tangelo Twist!

Oh yeah, Mojo Monday gave us one of THOSE cards again. You know the one, Tall and Skinny, oh how I despise it but I now have a new challenger in the house spurring me on, Girl Child. I say, bring it on! This is my card.

MojoSketch352 - Tangelo Twist  - JIFThis is the sketch this week from Mojo Monday.

MojoSketch352The base for my card today is Natural Ivory Cardstock. I don’t have many opportunities to utilize this cardstock but today I wanted to use the Tangelo Twist Cardstock which just happened to work beautifully with it.

The only stamp set I used was the magical Work of Art Stamp Set. As you can see I was able to create four different backgrounds from it simply using the Tangelo Twist Classic Ink. PLUS it has the most delightful sentiment – talk about value for money!

For You Blended Bloom!

The new Blended Bloom Stamp is proving to be a favorite of mine when I want to dress-up a plain base color. A splash of Smoky Grey Classic Ink provides the perfect accompaniment for the stamp.

Stamp onto Pink Pirouette Cardstock, add a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels and you’re onto a winner for certain. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I seem to be rather partial to the good old Chalk Talk Stamp Set and Framelits!

A Rainbow Butterfly!

Last weeks card actually came about because of this card and its off-cuts – I tell you, there is VERY little that I waste – but aren’t these fringe scissors FUN! 🙂

Language of Love Trio!

How is it that I went almost TWO YEARS without realizing how fabulous Summer Starfruit and Rich Razzleberry look together?

Language of Love - Stary Summerfruit - JIFEven going for a more masculine look works with this stamp set.

language of Love - Soho Summerfruit - JIFAnd naturally the set lends itself to an anniversary or wedding card. For this next card I combined both dry and heat embossing for quite the stunning result with more of my left-over Silver Glimmer Strips!
