Sending Good Thouhts Your Way!

Isn’t it amazing how quickly one’s routine goes out the window once Spring Break is officially here?! And trust me, it wasn’t from a lack of trying to keep on track as I’m not sure just how early I printed off this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch but it did me no good as you can see, here it is Tuesday and I’m only just writing my post for Monday. 🙁

So let’s not delay things any further, here is this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch…

Mojo 337 SketchAnd here is my interpretation of the sketch…

Sending Good Thoughts - Mojo 337 - JIF

Epic Day This and That DSP was the basis for this card onto the Whisper White Cardstock, that was the easy part. Even the Very Vanilla Cardstock came together well with the stamping-off of two stamp sets – Off the Grid and The Open Sea – then sponged with Gumball Green Classic Ink.

When it came to both the sentiment and the flowers/embellishments I didn’t have a clue. Many different things were attempted and rejected until I reached for the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set, realizing I had both sentiment and embellishments all in one with the strips of dots and stripes… phew! 🙂

Then as the card was becoming more masculine, instead of flowers for the embellishments I chose the Simply Star Stamp Set. All of which were stamped in the Calypso Coral Classic Ink.

Once assembled the Whisper White Base seemed too stark in comparison to the almost grunge appearance of the DSP so stamped off the little start from Banner Blast Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set in So Saffron Classic Ink.

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.
