Feels Like Fall for Mojo #464

There is definitely a feeling of fall in the air in many places and so it is here on our blog this week too.  We have three Halloween cards to share with this sketch in mind:


First this week is Robyn’s spooky card all decked out in spiders.  I just love the sentiment from Craft Smart and papers from Pebbles.  Using several layers of washi tape adds a spooky flair to her envelope too.  Very cute!

Karen’s card is next with a fun mixture of rich Halloween colors.  I just love the addition of purple with Halloween designs. Her papers are a mix of retired Stampin’ Up  collections with a bit of embossing around the edges.  A cute sentiment from Stampendous‘ Tricky Words, a bit of washi tape on her envelope and her card is all ready for fall.  So colorful!

Finally, my card is less scary but still fallish with just a bit of Halloween sprinkled in.  My papers are scraps from Doodlebug’s collections for Halloween.  The embossing folder is from Sizzix, but I don’t remember where I got it.  The stamps are from My Favorite Things’ Primitive Pumpkin Set.  Of course there is washi tape on my envelope too!

That’s a wrap for our fall parade.  We hope you found something that inspires you to create something with a taste of fall this week.  Be sure to check out the Mojo site for more great ideas.  Leave us a comment and come back again.  We love visitors!

A Sweet Thank You for Mojo Monday #487

A quick post this week with our cards for this week’s challenge over at Mojo Monday.  The week seems to have gotten away from me and so this will be short beginning with Robyn’s sweet and fresh creation.

Her materials were from retired products, but her combinations are soft and cheerful.  It reminds me that Spring is not too far away.  I love the tulips (my favorite flower) so of course this card is a hit for me.

Here is Karen’s card pretty in plaid from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid collection.  A bit of embossing from an old Sizzix embossing folder, and a few scalloped circles completes the look.  Another fun springtime look!

Finally here is my card ready for a good friend’s birthday.  These papers were sent as a thank-you addition to an order I recently received so I’m not aware what collection they’re from, but I do know the sentiment is from Ally Ways & the doily is a Stampin’Up embelishment as is the tiny cupcake.

Thanks for visiting.  We hope you’ve found some inspiration and will consider following us.

Mojo Monday # 486

Here are a couple of cards Karen and Robyn created for this week’s Mojo Monday challenge.  There are some clever ideas here and we hope you  find some inspiration for creating your cards.  Robyn’s card is a collection of scraps and leftovers from a variety of Paper Pumpkins from Stampin’ Up. Isn’t it amazing how far scraps can go?

Karen’s card has a bit of whimsy  and a feel of Spring to it.  From the cute printed background of carrots and tomatoes to the variety of embossing there is a lot of Spring going on here too.  Her paper is from American Craft’s Heartland Farm, and the delightful carrot embelishment is from Hobby Lobby.  Very cute!

Here is the sketch they followed for this week’s challenge:

Thanks for stopping by and do check out all the other great ideas at the Mojo Monday site.

Stamped Dangles for Make It Monday #275

Amy Shaffer offered a fun challenge at the Make it Monday site to create Stamped Dangles.   She offers a great video to illustrate her creations.  This was a fun project to create and I encourage you to give it a try.  Here is my card:

 

It was like a scavenger hunt through my stamp sets to gather the different components for my card.  I won’t list all the sources, but encourage you to peruse through your sets and I’ll bet you will be surprised with what you can find that will work.  The main thing is to have fun!

Two Cards for Mojo Monday #483 & GDP #073

Here we are once again with cards for this week’s challenge for Mojo Monday and The Global Design Project. When we started we thought it seemed the sketches had a lot of layers & the colors seemed a bit bright, but once we got going the cards came together very nicely.  The layers fit well together and the colors were fresh and crisp. We were pleased with their outcomes.  Here are the design sketches we followed:  

I had been wanting to do some watercoloring so out came the aqua painter and away I went.  It took me 3 tries to get the flowers right so please remember this:  always use a permanent ink when stamping the outline of your image!!  Ask me how I know.?!?

Materials

                         Richard Garry –Make Amazing Happen

  • Stamp:  Rubberneckers-Flowers w/Butterfly
  • Sentiment:  Stampin’ Up-Perfect Pair (retired)
  • Ribbon:  May Arts





Karen’s card ready for Spring showers.  I’m sure most of us would like to see an early Spring, but I’m not so sure.  Her creation is bright and cheery none the less.  

Materials

                         Pebbles-Basic Dots

                          Papertrey Ink-Watercolor Wonder (no longer available)

We hope you liked our cards and will visit the two sites we used for our inspiration this week.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mail

Here is a quick card I made yesterday for this week’s Cas(e) This Sketch #207.  I used Right At Home’s Happy Mail Year 2 stamp set and some printed paper from Reverse Confetti’s True Love collection.  Then added a fun border from Lil’ Inkers called Silly Stitched Borders.

 

That’s it, short and sweet.  See the fun sketch to follow below, and check out more ideas at the Case This Sketch site and consider playing along. I’ll be there looking for you!


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come again soon.
