Can’t believe it’s already Monday and time for another Mojo Challenge.
Today’s designer Julie Tilman suggested a “Tall & Skinny” card which is a super way to use some of those scraps. At their Mojo blog http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com Julie gives you different sizes to use for the “tall & skinny” cards.
My card is 6 x 7″ card stock scored at 3.5″ and other than a pearl the card uses all paper scraps. The envelop was made with the Envelop Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers using 8 x 8″ card stock and their 3.5 x 6″ measurement. The floral paper is Painted Blooms DSP from Stamping Up.
Sharon used Mossey Medow card stock with Birthday Bash DSP from Stamping Up. And her sentiment is from Papertrey’s Bitty Bouquets.
Give the “Tall and Skinny” card a try, it’s nice to change things up a notch and use those scraps too.
This week’s challenge was a super quick and fun creation.
I used a few extra layers than the sketch required, but I liked the white under my pieces. The base is a 4 1/4″ square. I don’t often make square cards, but it’s nice to get “out of the box” now and then!
Snipin’ Sisters were quite busy over the weekend making cards for some fun challenges. This is the sketch we were to follow for the Sweet Sunday Challenge. Sharon’s card uses Stampin’ Up’s Wonderous Wreath stamp and die cut set. Sahara Sand and Blushing Bride were the colors used for both paper and ink.
Karen’s clever fish is three simple pieces. A 1 3/4″ circle for the body and hearts for the mouth and tail. The waves were made using 3/4″ circle punches from white and blue with cute scallops surrounding the border.
Monday we were challenged to create cards suitable for a guy. Karen created a clever tie inspired idea she has used for a Father’s Day project from last year. The black and grey papers are scraps and the “birthday” is a diecut from Papertrey Inks called Swooshes.
What a better way to say “guy card” than with stripes. Sharon’s card is also created with scraps and she used the black and grey combination too. A very simple and quick creation. Her “happy birthday” is from PaperSmooches‘ Sentiment Sampler.
If you’re in the search for a masculine card idea here is what our good friend Robyn suggested: try picking any design you like and then use colors that look more masculine. Good advice don’t you think?
Today I’m entering two challenges with a very sweet character. Here is my entry into Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 265. The goal was to keep the lines clean and the dimension simple. Be sure to check out other sketches at http://www.sweetsunday sketch.blogspot.com.
“Henrietta” is from Rubberneckers Stamps and has been water colored with Stampin Up’s inks and Aqua Painters. The paper is from Papertrey Ink’s Berry Sorbet collection, and the sentiment is from a Paper Smoochers’ set called Sentiment Sampler.
