Plant Dreams for Mojo Monday #432

Here it is Monday again!  We are excited to share our cards for this week’s challenge.  Here is the design we worked from:

Sharon’s Card

This is my interpretation of the sketch.  Washi tape, markers, and a new stamp helped me with my idea.  I enjoyed the square format, but found aligning the washi tape to be difficult.  It would seem an easy task, but took me several attempts to get it straight.  Also, my camera does not reflect the card’s brightness.  In person the card looks bolder and crisper.

Materials:

Paper:  Botanical Bouquet DSP from Stampin’ Up

Stamps:  Friends & Flowers by Dees Artsy Impressions for Stamplorations 

Artsy Border Makers by Sherry Russ for Stamplorations 

Sentiment:  Petite Places Home & Garden Papertrey Ink

Karen’s Card

Karen’s card is a great rectangular interpretation of this week’s challenge.  Her color choices and detail around the tag embelishment create a beautiful design.  The patterned DSP, although bold, works well together.

Materials:

Paper:  Pink Houndstooth Recollections

Black and white collection Recollections 

Sentiment:  Lotus Blossom Stampin’ Up

Die Cut:  Label Die Stampin’ Up

Embellishments:  Label template SU,  red rhinestones Recollections

Robyn’s Card

Seeing Robyn’s card just makes you smile.  The sweet lamb and soft pastels work so well together.  Although not a valentine the colorful pinks and reds lend themselves to a great card for Spring.

Materials:

Paper:  Love Blossoms Stampin’ Up

Stamps:  Easter Lamb & Honeycomb Hello Stampin’ Up

We hope you enjoyed our collection of cards and will check out more creations in this week’s challenge at http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com.

Making Cards for Mojo Monday #431


It’s that time of the week when the Snipin’ Sisters are at their desks with their thinking caps on creating cards with this week’s sketch in mind.  We had fun and hope you find our interpretations insightful.  Here we go:

Karen’s card is all about pattern and texture.  With polka-dots, scallops, and a variety of pink patterns Karen has created a sweet little Valentine for someone special.  I wonder if one of her “sisters” will be the receipient?

Materials:

Paper:  Heidi Swapp pack from Michaels

Die:  ‘with love’ Swoosh Papertrey Ink and scallop and circle Nestibilities Sizzix

Embellishments:  Fashionable Hearts Sizzix

Robyn’s card has a favorite hedgehog that always looks so cute and brings a quick smile each time you see it.  She used some soft colors that make her card very sweet too.

Materials:

Paper:  Tan Hearts Recollections and Almond Toffee Basic Grey

Stamps:  hedgehog Penny Black  sentiment Paper Smootches

Embellishments:  dots Recollections

Die Cut:  flower Sizzix

To round this post out Sharon’s card uses a slightly different take the on the sketch.  Using ovals instead  of circles and turning her card vertically she has taken liberty to try something different.

Materials:

Paper: Botanical Gardens Stampin’ Up

Stamps:  umbrella-Friends & Flowers Dee’s Artsy Impressions;  sentiment-Fresh Floral Wrapups Papertrey Ink;  & butterfly-Flowering Fields Stampin’ Up

Die cuts:  stitched ovals My Favorite Things 

Embellishments:  ribbon May Arts &  Candy Dots SU

I’m So Glad There’s You Mojo #430

Better late than never with this week’s challenge.  We “sisters” have been off in many different directions this week, but have finally gathered our creations and would like to share them with you.  Here is our design sketch:  

  
Robyn’s card is a sweet mixture of soft pastels and florals that make you wish for Spring.  You can almost smell the sweet fragrance of an April cherry blossom.  Her use of polka dots make her card fun.

Paper:   Amy Tangerine’s “Stitched” from American Craft

Stamp:  A retired stamp from Stampin’ Up

Embelishments:  ribbon, flowers, rhinestones all from Michaels


Karen’s card is a great interpretation of this week’s design.  There is nice texture and great pattern in her card.  Her DSP reminds us of spring as well.  (Is it too early to be wishing for no more winter?)

Paper:  Garden Splendor Stampin’ Up

Stamp:  Friendly Phrases Stampin’ Up

Embossing Folder:  Dots Cuttlebug 

And finally Sharon’s card is a bit of a different take on a Valentine card.  Perhaps this would be more suitable for a male receipient.   With the graphic look and black and white color scheme it has a more generic feel than many valentines.

Love for Case this Sketch # 154

Having two blog entries in a week is a bit unusual for Snipin’ Sisters, but when this sketch came through our email and I had some time for cardmaking, I decided to give this challenge a try.  Here is the design sketch I used:


When I saw this idea the creativity started to flow.  I had already worked on some cards with hearts this week so the stamps and dies were already up on my workspace.  This is what I came up with:


Paper:  Smoke and slate cardstock-Bazzil, white cardstock-Recollections 

Framelits:  Stitched rectangles-My Favorite Things

Stamps:  Watercolor Words and Language of Love-Stampin Up

This was a quick card to create and the design sketch is very versatile.  I hope you will look for other ideas at http://www.casethissketch.blogspot.com.  There are amazing creations there.

I hope you enjoyed my creation this week.

Warm Winter Wishes for Mojo #429



After a two week break for the holidays the Snipin’ Sisters are back in their craft spaces and feeling creative. Here is this week’s design sketch:


Here is Sharon’s winter offering.  With the season’s coldness in full force around the country this card seems appropriate.  It is a standard A2 size, but does require a deeper envelope to accommodate the snowflakes.

 

sharon’s card

Paper:  white & brown cardstock-Michael’s   Polka-a-dot-Stampin’ Up (retired)

Embossing Folder:  Northern Flurry-Stampin’ Up

Rosettes:  Tim Holtz’s snowflake diecuts-Sizzix

Sentiment:  Two Feet Deep-Papertrey ink

Karen is getting Valentines ready for delivery.  With many layers and lots of bright color this sweet card will warm even the coldest winter day.  It is also the standard A2 size and does not require extra postage.  The white dots and dashes are an easy embelishment that makes a great finishing touch to her card.

Paper:  Be Loved-Fancy Pants

Dies: Heart Nestibilities-Sizzix

Ink:  white chalk marker-Stampin’ Up

robyn’s card

Isn’t this a bright and cheery card?   Tired of so many grey days Robyn decided to create this happy card.  The greens, yellow, and pink almost make you think of Spring.

Paper:  mostly from scrap box, ‘Sunshine’ is Bella Blvd.  

Stamps:  Stickable Stamps-Great Impressions

Sentiment:  Sassy Salutations-Stampin’ Up

We hope you enjoyed our cards. This was a fun layout to work with, and we hope you will check out the other creations at http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com.  Let’s make 2016 full of fun cardmaking projects!

Until next time, make time to be creative!
