Tickled Pink Mojo

Posted on

When I first saw this week’s Mojo Monday sketch I was a tad hesitant but on looking at it again today, oh my gosh, it took absolutely NO time at all. This is my card.

Mojo362 - Flamingo Lingo - JIF

This is the sketch.

Mojo 362 SketchFor something different for my background I chose Brushed Silver Cardstock which I embossed with the Decorative Dots Embossed Folder. Then onto my cut Whisper White Cardstock I heat embossed one of the stamps from the Flamingo Lingo Stamp Set.

Over this I sponged Melon Mambo Classic Ink then stamped the flamingo in Melon Mambo Classic Ink onto a banner of Whisper White Cardstock.

After adhering this onto the Melon Mambo background I tied 1/8″ Silver Ribbon and 1/2″ Pink Pirouette Seam Binding Ribbon around the top then added the stamped banner Tickled Pink.

Happy Umpteenth Mojo!

Posted on

Wednesday, Monday, it’s all the same, it’s a day! So here I am, on a Wednesday, making my Monday card and posting it as if it’s Monday just to keep the routine, lol!

Here’s the card I’ve created for this week’s Mojo Monday Challenge.

Mojo359 - Happy Umpteenth Mojo - JIFThis is the Mojo Monday sketch if you haven’t already seen it.

Mojo 359 Sketch

On printing this sketch this morning I wasn’t anticipating any delays as lots of ideas were whirling around in my mind. Unfortunately the one thing NOT whirling around was the background that was going to be my starting point.

Three hours and three different backgrounds later I was finally underway with a pattern from the Park Lane DSP with the smallest border of Meadow Moss Cardstock. Onto this a pattern from the Moonlight DSP Stack. Onto that a small piece of Meadow Moss Cardstock which I stamped in Meadow Moss Classic Ink with a stamp from the Work of Art Stamp Set which I now wish I’d sponged.

The sentiment came from the Oh My Goodies Stamp Set, stamped in Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink then die-cut with the Deco Label Collection. I cut another framelit in the larger size in Blackberry Bliss Cardstock for underneath. A small banner in Hello Honey Cardstock, lightly sponged in Hello Honey Classic Ink was also added. Ribbon in Blackberry Bliss was the final touch for this area.

To the top right-hand corner three Basic Rhinestones Jewels were added. These I colored with the darkest Old Olive Blendabilities.

Typeset Mojo Monday!

Posted on

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.

How much do YOU know?!

Posted on

What I know is that I have spent an ENTIRE afternoon doing what should have been a very QUICK card using scraps, only to complete the card using NOTHING of which I began with.

It did however use the Friends Who Know Stamp which I’ve been meaning to use so that at least was something, lol! For the colored chalk effect I chose to use the Blendabilities so that when I went outside the lines, it wouldn’t leave a darker shade as markers can sometimes do. This is my card.

We'll be friends - All Abloom - JIF
CARD RECIPE

Cardstock: Whisper White, Rose Red, Pistachio Pudding
Stamp Set: Friends Who Know
Ink: Memento
Blendabilities: Melon Mambo, Old Olive
DSP: All Abloom Stack
Framelits: Labels Collection
Embellishments: Basic Rhinestone Jewels
Essentials: Paper Trimmer, Paper Snips, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform,
Stampin’ Scrub & Mist, Sticky Strip, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Weather reports have it being a very WET week-end, perfect incentive for a little creating wouldn’t you say?! May you have a wonderful time however you choose to spend the week-end!

Smoky Slate Stars Mojo!

Posted on

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 Mojo!

Posted on

MOJO MONDAY time and here is my interpretation of this week’s sketch!

Moonlight Mojo349

And this is the sketch from Mojo Monday

Mojo349SketchFor today sketch the Moonlight DSP Stack was my inspiration as my background, bottom strip and even that side of arrows on the left! The Everything Eleanor Stamp Set was perfect for filling in the rest. The flowers I particularly like, especially when highlighted with a little color using an Aqua Painter and some Basic Pearl Jewels!

Everything Elenor - Pearl Flowers - Mojo349 - JIF

The cardstock used, Blueberry Bliss and Hello Honey, are both from the new 2014-2016 In-Color collection. For the ribbon, although knowing what it was I was hoping to achieve, I’d have to admit it wasn’t my finest work (nor is the photography for that matter, lol!) yet is still effective on this card. By the way, this is the new Hello Honey 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon. Nice huh?

Stamp Sets: Everything Eleanor, Sassy Salutations
DSP: Moonlight Stack
Punch: 2-1/2″ Circle
Framelits: Circles Collection
Embellishments: Basic Pearl Jewels

Sticky Strip, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Big Shot, Magnetic Board

Where my week went…

Posted on

It’s official, I’m admitting defeat on this week – after having Boy Child home today with possible tonsillitis (which it isn’t as my poor neighbors can attest to now), then forgetting that with Easter just days away the refrigerator required restocking so there went the morning with grocery shopping and unpacking, and oh yes, the Easter Bunny had yet to shop, well… I gave up!

However, given the late hour I’m now able to post the card I spent Tuesday creating for a lovely lady who retired today from the project Darling Hubby is working on. I’m happy with the card but seriously, an entire day AND night… what the? Talk about bad head-space!

Happy Retirement dear lady!

Not sure why the colors are so muted in this photo, perhaps it has something to do with the fact it was almost midnight by the time I was happy with it all and took this photo.

The card base was Whisper White Cardstock with Wisteria Wonder Cardstock as the main layer, onto that went Silver Glimmer Paper to create a bright border around the Elegant Eggplant Cardstock onto which I added lime-green ribbon roses both above and below the DSP. The accessories were all pulled from “the stash”, lol. All hail the stash! 🙂

Don’t you just love how it can take OVER a full working day to complete just ONE card? Imagine if we charged cards per the hours we spent on them? Yea right, like THAT’S going to happen, lol!

Anyways, I best bid you all a good-night and wish you and your families all the most wonderful Easter Break however, and whichever, way you celebrate.

 

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