Thank You for Mojo Monday #445

Welcome to our little blog. We are friends and family that enjoy making cards together and sharing them with you.  We live across the country from each other and usually do our creating via video chatting.  We meet each week for the Mojo challenge and now it’s become part of our Monday morning routine. We enjoyed this week’s challenge and hope you enjoy our cards.  This is the sketch we followed:


We could use either diagram and were surprised to discover we all chose the circular version.  We purposely do not share our cards until each one has finished and had a good laugh when we saw that they were all round!   Here are the cards we created:

sharon’s card

Sharon has been in a pink mood lately and her card is full of fun pastels.  Paper is from Stampin’ Up’s Birthday Bouquet DSP & Pear Pizzaz cardstock.  The fun stripe is S-E-I’s Promise Me (smitten).  Diecut is from SU’ s starburst collection (retired). Sentiment is Hero Art’s Just for You by Lia.  The sentiment banner was punched with SU’s Curvy Corner Punch (soon to be retired).

robyn’s card

This is Robyn’s sweet card featuring a darling stamp from Taylored Expression’s You’ve Got Mail series.  She backed her card with pieces of DSP from Stampin’ Up’s Field of Flowers & DSP Paper Stack.  The little sentiment is from SU’s Flamingo Lingo. This was Robyn’s first attempt at a circle card and she seemed to really enjoy making it.

karen’s card

Karen is already thinking about summer and the 4th with her patriotic swivel card this week.  Her card cleverly opens with a simple star brad to reveal the message.  Paper Paper Studio’s Four Seasons and sentiment from Stampibilitiy’s Barrel of Stamps.  She carried the patriotic theme just a bit further with the star embossing folder also from Paper Studio.  

That does it for the Sisters this week.  Check out more great ideas at http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com.  Thanks for visiting and we hope you come back again soon.

Reunion Project for Mojo Monday #444

We have another fun Snipin’ Sisters collection of cards for you this week.  It was a special time as we worked together creating our cards for this week’s challenge.  Usually we create via video chatting, but this week we were reunited and having a great time.  This was the sketch we used:


Most of the materials used this week are from Stampin’ Up.  We created our cards not only for Mojo Monday, but also for a card exchange we are entering with Susan Itell at Simple Stampin’.  Card exchanges are lots of fun because we get to share cards with people from around the US. Here are our cards:

 

Karen’s card is first with its fun mix of DSP and Pear Pizzaz cardstock.  A clean and crisp look with the sweetest stitched hearts from Memory Box.  Karen’s card is followed by Robyn’s fresh ‘pretty in pink’ creation. The embossed edges on both cards make simple and interesting embellishments.  Last up is Sharon’s card with Sahara Sand cardstock and DSP from Birthday Bouquet.  Light and airy with stitched circles from My Favorite Things.  


  

That does it for this week.  We always enjoy working together and being altogether was even more of a treat.  Check out more great cards at http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com

Hope to see you next week!

Totally Awsome for GDP #030

Just a quick post for this week’s challenge at Global Design Project.  Here is the sketch:



I had a good time with this project.  It came together easily and would be great for many occasions.  I used Old Olive & Wisteria Wonder colors from Stampin’ Up & their DSP Stack (both sides) to add a bit of interest to the card.  With the fun Grateful Bunch stamps & Blossom Bunch Punch (also from Stampin’ Up) you can’t go wrong.  By adding a few splashes of Wisteria Wonder & So Saffron ink the flowers were a snap.  A few dimensionals and there you have it….done!

Check out more great cards at http://www.global-design-project.com.  Hope to see you again soon!

This was a lot of fun for each of us.  Some of us enjoyed it so much that we made several cards.  With many birthdays coming in April for all of us, birthday cards were the theme of the day.  Here is Karen’s sweet Springtime card:
