Mojo Monday 404 - I Think You're Great


Hi All!

It's an absolutely gorgeous morning here, the sun is shining but still cold so it's the best weather to stay indoors. 

Well it's Mojo Monday challenge time again - well here in Australia it is Tuesday but I am loving playing along. So this morning when I checked my email there it was a beautiful sketch just waiting to be made. 

All the challenge details are over on the Mojo Monday blog and you can also view all the wonderful Mojo Makers samples.

Today I am using I Think You're Great stamp set with the Go Wild Designer Series Paper.


Here I have stamped the sentiment in Tip Top Taupe and Clear embossed


I hope you like this card

Vintage Leaves

Hi All!

I hope you all are having a fine day because I know I am. I started out making leaves this morning for no reason just wanted to play with the new set Vintage Leaves and matching die just to see what I can do with them. My son came in and said why am I bringing leaves out of the garden bahaha.

Well they are not out of the garden and I wasn't sure how I could arrange them on a card so I decided to stamp several of the different leaves on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in various shades of browns, then just laid the leaves on background. 
Well it sort of just worked out from there that I knew what else I wanted on the card.

Leaves are stamped in Versamark then sponged over with Autumn colours. Scrunch up a little before adding to card front.



I hope you like this card

Watercolor Wings

Hi All!

Well I can certainly say winter is well upon us here in the sticks of Oz. Have the fire going to keep warm as there is a nice frost outside. So as usual it's an awesome day to stay inside (even hubby volunteered to do the grocery shopping so I don't have to go out, he really is one of a kind)

Today I wanted to again play with the Watercolor Wings stamp set and I must say this is a stamp set everyone HAS to have.

Here I have stamped the centre butterfly first, then I have used the matching die cut from the Bold Butterfly framelits to enable me to use as a mask to overlap the top and bottom images. After I was happy with how the images turned out I stamped Sentiment on vellum then tucked under cardstock on both sides leaving enough so it stays raised before I layered on a piece of  DSP from the Brights collection.

Garden In Bloom

Hi All!

Today I am playing with the stamp set "Garden In Bloom" but I am still not happy with how I stamp with this one...May have to keep practicing. Or it just may be that I don't do 2 step stamping well enough yet but I will let you be the judge of that.
I do love that the set comes with many stamps including a butterfly and a bee, and they are just too cute.




Tomorrow I am going to use Wild About Flowers which is another 2 step set so be sure to check back and check it out.

Skating By

Hi All!

Yay... 
We finally have rain here, I can not remember when we last had really good rain and it feels awesome and was a very good excuse to stay indoors and craft.
So today I wanted to play with the stamp set "Skating By" 
This set is awesome as you can use one of the many items to put in his hand.




As you can see I went with the guitar and am pretty happy with the way this card turned out.



I hope you like this card

Best Thoughts - Mojo Monday 402

Hi All.
Well I have thought about entering the Mojo Monday for quite some time now so today I have finally done it. Oh my gosh this was so much fun and was a challenge for me as I usually just pick a stamp set and go for it.

I have been really liking the "Shadow Stamping" lately and thought I could use this technique for this challenge. 
Here I have used Craft White and Tip Top Taupe combined with the 
"Best Thoughts" stamp set.

Shadow stamping is: you stamp in white then in stamp again in the card stock coordinating colour that you are going to use, stamp just off to line of the first image.

I hope you like this card.
