Typeset Mojo Monday!

In my defense I would like to point out that my card WAS in fact completed last night for this week’s Mojo Monday challenge but I was too exhausted to post anything last night. I’m awake now though and here is my card…

Mojo356 - Typeset Black and Vanilla - JIF

This is this week’s sketch from Mojo Monday.

Mojo356

Although the actual card base was Whisper White Cardstock, after I chose the DSP from the Typeset Pack, I bordered it with Very Vanilla Cardstock. Both the DSP and cardstock were sponged with Crumb Cake Classic Ink.

Using the Very Vanilla 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon to create a ribbon rosette finished off with a Pearl Basic Jewel in the center. And yes, I am working on the Ribbon Bundles, soon I promise, if only there was more hours in the day. 🙁

For the ruching across the card I used some of the beautiful new Very Vanilla 5/8″ Satin Ribbon – I am SO glad this is part of Stampin’ Up’s! ribbon selection now as it’s so wonderful to work with.

All Abloom with Hope

Have you checked out the Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp Set yet on page 240? It is fabulous with so many possibilities. Here are just three cards I made using this set this afternoon.

Bloom with Hope - All Abloom - JIF

I’ve promised myself that next week I will begin looking at my 12×12 DSP’s and give my DSP stacks a rest but when one scrapbooks one is hesitant in cutting into a big sheet, ouch! And as you may have noticed with the flower above, I still have a love/hate relationship going on with the Blendabilities, lol! 🙂

Bloom with Hope - Sympathy - JIF

For the next card I’ve used the leaf stamp to create a background, then kept the flower stamp rather plain that I adhered onto it. This image I stamped twice, colored with the Blendabilities then fussy-cut the two open flowers. Before adhering these flowers I gently shaped the petals up to give it a little more depth.

I {heart} You!

For today’s Mojo Monday my card could be given this Friday as a Valentine’s Card or could be given as an Engagement or Wedding Card. Here is the sketch.

Mojo 332 Sketch

For my card I’ve gone with a very basic color scheme of Silver Foil (on offer again in the Spring Catty) and Silver and Red Glimmer Paper. For the background I cut the Silver Foil to cover the entire front of the base card, then cut an inch from that. Putting this piece aside, I cut the remaining piece in half then embossed each half with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (yours free with any $60 purchase this Sale-a-Bration!). When assembling I placed the piece NOT embossed in the center and the embossed pieces either side

Mojo Monday Sketch 332 - Joanne Ritchie With the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies I cut two hearts from the Red Glimmer Paper, adhering one either side of the Silver Glimmer Paper tag I made using the wonderful new Scallop Edge Tag Punch available now in the Spring Catty. A piece of Very Vanilla 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon finished off the tag.

Mojo Monday Sketch 332 - Glitter Paper - JIFAcross the bottom of the tag I simply snipped a piece of the Silver Foil to give it a banner effect on one edge then adhered to the other end three of the beautiful Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons. This time I haven’t even added a sentiment as I think the red hearts say it all!

Old World Gifts of Kindness

It hasn’t been my intention to continually use the Soho Subway DSP but it certainly has become that way though hasn’t it? On this card I have chosen yet another design of this range to punch out hexagons.

Old World Gifts of Kindness

At the top of the card I used some sticky strip to create a ruffle appearance with the beautiful Very Vanilla 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon (more has been ordered so if you forgot or missed out with the first allotment, email me today…), adding some Large Pearl Basic Jewels for some extra ompf!

Very Vanilla Seam Ribbon with Pearls

Then onto the sponged and arranged hexagons I’ve layered (surprise!) the Very Vanilla cardstock onto Early Espresso which I’ve then trimmed with Crisp Cantaloupe 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim. This ribbon ties into the layers on the base card which is Natural Ivory then is layered with Early Espresso, Crisp Cantaloupe with the Very Vanilla cardstock on top!

Crisp Cantaloupe Ribbon

The stamp of the teapot and flowers came from the Tea Party stamp set and was stamped in Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink. The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso from the Gifts of Kindness stamp set (yes, another of my current favorites for sentiments…)!
