Lovin’ the Smooch Spritz!!!

Posted on

It’s not that I want to do but I really think I have to admit defeat on my Mojo Monday’s actually happening on a Monday! Yes, I know, for my own peace of mind I always back-date my blog so it shows Monday’s date but more often my Mojo happens on a Wednesday. I know I should accept this but for whatever reason, I’m not yet ready to accept it just yet. I’ll give it just one more week!

In the meantime however this is this weeks Mojo Monday sketch…

Mojo 319 SketchAnd here is my interpretation. Very quick, yet quite effective don’t you think? I’ve used a Whisper White card base and onto that have adhered Crumb Cake Cardstock but not before I gave it a good spritz with the Smooch. Ooooo, how I’m lovin’ the Smooch! I even spritzed the doily after I’d lightly sponged the edges with Crumb Cake Ink. And I’m not sure if you can see it, but I’ve also stamped stars onto the doily with the Illumination Glimmer Watermark Ink.

I punched a circle from one of Season of Style Designer Journaling Tags then ran the thick end of a Cherry Cobbler Marker around its edges before adding some Dazzling Diamonds. A ribbon of paper was cut from the Season of Style DSP Stack and before I added the ribbon of Season of Style Washi Tape which I mounted onto Whisper White cardstock to ensure its colors would pop!

Ho Ho Ho – ‘Tis the Season!

Yes I know… shock, horror, I’ve actually created something!

What can I say? Mojo Monday, with its weekly card sketch is a fabulous way to get the creativity back in your fingers when your mind is over-crowded with what you should be doing (sadly I refer to house-work), not with what you want to do! This is this week’s sketch.

Mojo 318 SketchThis is my interpretation of the sketch. Not that dissimilar from the sketch for a change actually.

Mojo318 - Ho Ho HoThe strip of DSP from the Season of Style Pack was sitting on my desk so it immediately became part of the card. Then for the sake of expediency I chose three tags from the Season of Style Designer Journaling Tags. Two of these I punched the circles from before coating the edges with silver glitter and one of the beautiful Frosted Finishes Embellishments. With Versamark I stamped the snow flake from the Warmth & Wonder Stamp Set over the Baked Brown Sugar background.

Mojo318 - Let it Snow Embellishment - JIFThe remaining tag I added to a white tag I hand-cut from Whisper White cardstock. More glitter was added to the lights on the tags for  a little ompf and a large bow made from the Cherry Cobbler 1″ Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon. All the edges were sponged with Crumb Cake.
