This week we were to work with three images and a banner with a stripe of some kind. We took liberties–some more than others, and we had a good time. Here is the design that motivated our cards:
First up is Robyn. She did a great job with color and mixing patterns. The background paper is from Stampin’ Up, but the poppy paper is from an unknown source. She used SU’s pansy punch for her flower and a bit of glitter paper for its center. The sentiment is also from SU and is a thinlet die. The bit of bling is from Doodlebug Designs.
Karen’s card is a clever interpretation of the Mojo design in that she made her circles into a snowman. The background is a Stampin Up product as is the embossing folder she used to give the snowman texture. The hat and face are simply scraps, but the nose is a button in the shape of a carrot. Very Cute!
My card was inspired from the season as leaves have begun to change here, and the temps. are cooling down. All of my paper is from Papertrey Ink’s Text-Style Fall Prints & Patterns. I cut the leaves with Stampin’ Up’s Big Z die: Autumn Accents which I think has been retired. The checked ribbon is a Mara-Mi product and is 1/4″ wide. The sentiment is all SU product. The background was their fancy label punch, but is no longer available. The word window punch is available and I use it often. My stamp is from SU’s Good Greetings, but I just checked and is no longer available either.
That is our collection for this week. I hope you found some inspiration and don’t forget to check out the Mojo Monday site for more fun ideas.
Halloween is such fun for many folks this time of year and here at Snipin’ Sisters it’s no different. Karen and Robyn have come up with some pretty clever and spooky ideas for their cards. They followed this week’s design…..
And with a few personal adaptations, here are their cards.
Karen used retired Stampin’ Up paper from her scrap box to create the layers and cute tag for the base of her card. Her sentiment is from Li’l Inkers and has red eyes done with a bit of glitter from Stickles. The edgelet on the envelope is from SU’s holiday catalog called Sleigh Ride. If you look closely you may see that she has backed each little house with a scrap of colored paper. (Very clever!)
Robyn’s card is equally scary with spiders galore! She first embossed her white cardstock with a folder of webs from Paper Studio. Then she used Stampin’ Up’s DSP Happy Haunting for her next layers. She also used Li’l Inker’s Spooky for her sentiment and doubled it for more definition.
Also being very clever in her own right, Robyn made her tag removable and added more spiders. Can one have too many spiders? When they are as cute as these, I’d say no!
That does it for this week. Check out more clever ideas at http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com.
Hope you found something useful and we thank you for visiting.
Even with the holiday we managed to take some time this week for our weekly meeting to create our cards for this week’s challenge. Here is the design we followed:
Let’s begin with Robyn’s apples and fallish color scheme from DCWV Grade School Stack. The mix of color and pattern work so well together. Love the dashes she used around the sentiment too. There are plans for this to go to the support staff at Robyn’s school with some nice chocolates. Robyn is so thoughtful.
Next up is Karen’s card full of texture. Her fun embossing folders are mostly from Sizzix. They include Big Dots, Small Dots, and Diagonals, and Swirls from Cuttlebug. The paper colors are Pink Pirouette and Delightful Dijon from Stampin’ Up and she isn’t sure about the grey. Her sentiment is is also from SU and is also called Yippee-Skippee! If you look closely, she even embossed the envelope flap in Small Dots. Love the color combinations.
My card is similar to Robyn’s in subject matter. With school starting this week in our area I’m sending my card to a retired teacher friend just to say “hello”. I used Doodlebug’s Petite Prints for the background and Stampin Up’s Real Red and Old Olive for the center. My apple stamps are from Papertrey Ink’s Apple Prints. There are many apples to choose from in this set, and these are a couple of my favorite. The sentiment is also from Papertrey. The stamp set is called Bowl of Sunshine. As for the DSP strip, I’m not sure of the name, but it is from a recent purchase at JoAnn’s.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our collection this week and thank you for stopping by. There are more cards for inspiration at http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com so be sure to check them out. Until next week have fun crafting!
Many people dread Mondays, but here at Snipin’ Sisters we love Mondays because we get together and create cards. It’s amazing that even though we work in separate places, when we come together (via FaceTime) we have often created similar cards. This week we all seemed to have Fall on our minds. Here is the design we used:
I just received a new set of stamps with dies from Papertrey Ink so of course I had to use them in today’s project. The set is called Pumpkin Patch and it has two sets of three different sized pumpkins. The inks are Stampin’ Up’s Pumpkin Pie, Tangelo Twist, and Old Olive. My paper is SU’s Mossy Meadow for the background and Papertrey Ink’s Chicken Scratch Gingham Paper for the accent. Having not read the directions completely for this design, my card is not a ‘tall & skinny’ but a standard A2 size. I’m still happy with the way it turned out. I hope you like it too.
Robyn’s Fall theme for her card had lots of fun color. Her papers are from Stampin’ Up. DSP is from Sweet Li’l Things and the card base is Hello Honey. The stamps are also SU’s: Holiday Home and Sprinkles of Life. Her Tree Builder punch (also from SU) was the base for her embellished circles. It’s not a card from Robyn without a little bling and this one is no exception. Got a love those rhinestones!
Karen’s card rounds out the group’s Fall interpretations with another patch of pumpkins. The DSP is Motley Monsters from Stampin’ Up–very cute and a lot of spooky. She used pumpkin dies from My FavoriteThings and a small leaf punch from EK. For just a bit of dimension she chalked the edges of the pumpkins with Chestnut Roan chalk from Color Box. A nice touch!
That is it for us this week. We hope you enjoyed our creations and will return again. As always be sure to check out the Mojo Monday site (www.mojomonday.blogspot.com) for more great cards.
