A Wonderful Day 

Here are 3 cards hot off the presses made just this morning.  We just finished our weekly video chat where we make cards for the Mojo Monday challenge.  Here is the sketch we followed:

My card is a combination of colors I’m in love with this season.  If you follow our blog you’ve probably noticed me using it often.  The So Saffron and Wisteria Wonder are so soft and such a great combination to my eye.  Both are from Stampin’ Up as are the dotted and floral embossing folders I used. The sentiment is from Penny Black’s Wonderful stamp set.

Isn’t this a bright bold card from Karen?  She too used several embossing folders including  Wood Grain by Paper Studio, and  Swirls and Leaves from Sizzix.  The swirled black paper is a sheet from a Recollections pad and the remainder are scraps.  The sweet label is from a Martha Stewart collection.


Do you see the similarities between Karen’s and Robyn’s cards this week. They were created in different spaces, but to their surprise came out very similar.  If you look closely you will see the black stripe is ribbon from May Arts and not paper.  A nice texture alternative.  The sweet ‘hello’ is from a retired Stampin’ Up collection called A Dozen Thoughts.   

We are happy you stopped in and hope you return soon. There are more great interpretations of this sketch at the Mojo Monday site.  Please check them out.

3 Fun Creations for Mojo Monday #492

This week we have some fun cards we hope you will enjoy.  Here is the sketch we used:

This is my card with the fun image Karen used last week.  It’s from Whipper Snapper Designs and it just makes me smile.  How about you?  If I were to make this card again I think I’d emboss the So Saffron* and the Wisteria Wonder* pieces.  I’m blaming the absence of textures to the early hour I must create my cards so I may work along with my other “sisters”.  They live in a later time zone.  How does that sound?  Believable I hope!

* Stampin Up

Karen’s card is so sweet.  She made it for her sweet granddaughter who recently turned 16. The papers were scrapbox found with just a bit of glittery pink sparkle.  Love the combination of pattern don’t you?

April is birthday central for our families and Robyn too has a birthday card.  Her sweet image is from Just Rite Papercraft‘s Doodled Birds.  They are so fun! Once again this week she has combined colors & patterns that knock her card out of the park!

That’s a wrap for this week.  We hope we’ve inspired you to create something fun!  Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check the Mojo Monday site for more great ideas.

Until next time, we are—

Hello Spring for Mojo Monday #489

I tried to get our post out earlier this week, but it seems the weeks just fly by lately.  Does this seem to be happening to any one else? We have some fun cards this week that I hope you enjoy.  Here we go with Robyn’s card:

This is so fresh and bright just right for the first week of Spring.  Some fun swirls from Tim Holtz for Sizzix are the center of attention on her card this week.  Pretty floral papers from Pocket Blossoms from a DCWV pad accompanied by a few sweet sequins create a fun card.  The birthday sentiment is retired Sassy Salutations from Stampin Up.  

My card has a touch of Spring to it too.   Most of my materials are from Stampin’ Up and include cardstock of Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach, one of their sweet doilies and a few delicate pearls.  I tried some tone-on-tone stamping with my Peekaboo Peach layer and like the results.  The stamp I used was a sprig from their Blooms & Wishes collection.  The sentiment is an old stamp from a local craft store.

Here is Karen’s card all fresh and fun.  She used Pebbles’s Budding Romance printed paper for some Springtime interest and complemented it with Stampin’ Up’s Blushing Bride cardstock.  A 3D flower from SU’s Botanical Gardens and a simple sentiment stamped on a Word Window punch out from SU rounds out the look nicely.

And there you have it for this week.  Three cards ready for Spring. This was the sketch we followed and encourage you to visit the Mojo Monday site for more inspiration. We hope you enjoyed your visit and will come back again!

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.

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!
