Blackberry Bliss Mojo!

My goodness, here it is only Tuesday morning and I’m already posting my Mojo Monday. Perhaps I’m finally in tune with this summer vacation now that it’s coming to an end, lol! Here is my card.

Mojo358 - Blackberry Bliss - JIF

And here is this week’s sketch.

Mojo358SketchAs it happened, this DSP from the Park Lane Series was sitting on my desk yesterday. It was intended for a scrapbook page but never used. As I put the DSP away I looked again at the pattern and this card all but made itself.

There’s the smallest of borders in Blackberry Bliss Cardstock behind the DSP and another strip of it just below the center of the card. Instead of using scallops behind this strip I used the cardstock “off-cuts”, the negative pieces, after creating the scallop border.

Onto the Smoky Slate Cardstock I stamped in Smoky Slate Classic Ink a stamp from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set. The sentiment inside the On-Film Framelits die-cut in Blackberry Bliss Cardstock is from the Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set.

Smoky Slate Stars Mojo!

Oh. My. Gosh. This week’s Mojo Monday Challenge came together so quickly that I had actually completed the card and its happy snaps before the tragically bad movie I was watching had finished. This is my card…

Mojo351Sketch - DSP Stars - JIFThis is the sketch by Mojo Monday for this week…

Mojo 351 Sketch

Once again the wonderful new DSP stacks, Moonlight and All Abloom made this card so darn easy as even though these two DSP’s were from different stacks, they worked together beautifully in the true style of Stampin’ Up!

The sentiment from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set was stamped in Blackberry Classic Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock then die-cut with the Banners Framelits, then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals onto Daffodil Delight Cardstock which also die-cut with the Banners Framelits.

Of course it seems no card of mine would be completed without a little something from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. With my die-cut of Whisper White Cardstock from the Circles Collection Framelits, I then stamped it in Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate and Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink.

Moonlight Lagoon Mojo Monday!

As the saying goes… better late than never!

Here it is Saturday and it is only now that I have been able to choose the “right” sentiment for my Mojo Monday card for this week. Or as a good friend has now rechristened it, Mojito Monday – no guessing why we’re friends huh? Lol!

Here is my card using one of the Moonlight DSP’s as my base and my feature. The base with a thin border of Smoky Slate Cardstock and the side pieces with a thin border of 2014-2016 In-Color Hello Honey Cardstock. The center circles and sentiment are all with the new 2014-2016 In-Color Lost Lagoon, noice!

And this is this week’s Mojo Sketch 350.

The new 2014-2016 In-Color Lost Lagoon worked brilliantly with these colors but looked a little bland against the patterns of the base. With the help of a little bling in the form of the small Basic Rhinestone Jewels to create a border (oh how I love those borders), a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set, and some Silver 1/8″ Ribbon, all that was changed!

Trying to come up with an embellishment other than a flower did have me thinking for more than a few moments but the Triangle Punch, a carry-over from the Everyday Occasions Catty, quickly solved THAT problem. Two triangles placed at right-angles on top of two others created a wonderful “space-like” embellishment.

Simple Stems Trio!

One of the challenges I set myself at the crop over the week-end was to do three cards using the beautiful Simple Stems Stamp Set found in the Celebrate the Everyday Catty. With seven stamps in the set it wasn’t going to be a difficult challenge, lol!

For the first card Calypso Coral Cardstock and Smoky Slate Cardstock were used as my layers to highlight the Silver Heat Embossing and the Watercolor Wonder DSP.

Simple Stems - Make a Wish - JIFThis next card is very clean which makes it VERY adaptable to most any situation – thank you, birthday, congratulations, or even with sympathy – simply by swapping the Basic Pearls with a sentiment.

Simple Stems - Baked Brown Sugar - JIF

My last card came together quite by accident. The “L” layout I already had in my mind but it just wasn’t coming together Friday night so went home to sleep on it. Just as slumber was about to wash over me so did inspiration, this being the end result. Oh, how I’m going to miss Primrose Petals, sniff sniff, which I stamped the flower three times in then fussy cut each one then layered them on top of each other with dimensionals!

Simple Stems - Sending Good Thoughts - JIFAs you can see, the Simple Stems Stamp Set is a brilliantly adaptable stamp set, great as part of one’s stash! 🙂

Simple Stems - Stamp Set - JIFRemember though, this is only available in the Celebrate the Everyday Catty which will be concluding June 1, 2014!

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