Ray of Sunshine Mojo!

Inspiration came slowly for this week’s Mojo Monday. Several backgrounds were created until I settled on a DSP from the All Abloom DSP Stack and voila. This is my interpretation of this week’s sketch.

And here is the Mojo Monday’s Sketch 355.

mojo355It’s incredible how much the background “creates” the card as such. In this background there are so many colors to work with and then some. Island Indigo ended up being my “anchoring” color, using it on my right-hand strip and for the banner which I’ve inked in with a Gorgeous Grunge stamp. I’ve also used some of those stamps on the right-hand strip and over the sun also.

The sun was created with a Circle Framelit, the Triangle Punch in Hello Honey Cardstock and the circle template from the Essentials Paper Piercing Mat. The beautiful sentiment is from the Ray of Sunshine Stamp Set.

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.

Fast Geometrical Friday!

As you’ve no doubt guess by now, I have rainbows a LOT on mind of late so it will come as no surprise that when I working with the Geometrical Stamp Set earlier in the week I had a ponder how I could incorporate this set in rainbows.

This was my conclusion!

Each of the triangles has obviously been stamped and punched separately before being adhered with a Stampin’ dimensional, utilizing even the full triangle as leaves for my rainbow flower!

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