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.

Mojo Monday # 486

Here are a couple of cards Karen and Robyn created for this week’s Mojo Monday challenge.  There are some clever ideas here and we hope you  find some inspiration for creating your cards.  Robyn’s card is a collection of scraps and leftovers from a variety of Paper Pumpkins from Stampin’ Up. Isn’t it amazing how far scraps can go?

Karen’s card has a bit of whimsy  and a feel of Spring to it.  From the cute printed background of carrots and tomatoes to the variety of embossing there is a lot of Spring going on here too.  Her paper is from American Craft’s Heartland Farm, and the delightful carrot embelishment is from Hobby Lobby.  Very cute!

Here is the sketch they followed for this week’s challenge:

Thanks for stopping by and do check out all the other great ideas at the Mojo Monday site.

Two Cards for Mojo Monday #483 & GDP #073

Here we are once again with cards for this week’s challenge for Mojo Monday and The Global Design Project. When we started we thought it seemed the sketches had a lot of layers & the colors seemed a bit bright, but once we got going the cards came together very nicely.  The layers fit well together and the colors were fresh and crisp. We were pleased with their outcomes.  Here are the design sketches we followed:  

I had been wanting to do some watercoloring so out came the aqua painter and away I went.  It took me 3 tries to get the flowers right so please remember this:  always use a permanent ink when stamping the outline of your image!!  Ask me how I know.?!?

Materials

                         Richard Garry –Make Amazing Happen

  • Stamp:  Rubberneckers-Flowers w/Butterfly
  • Sentiment:  Stampin’ Up-Perfect Pair (retired)
  • Ribbon:  May Arts





Karen’s card ready for Spring showers.  I’m sure most of us would like to see an early Spring, but I’m not so sure.  Her creation is bright and cheery none the less.  

Materials

                         Pebbles-Basic Dots

                          Papertrey Ink-Watercolor Wonder (no longer available)

We hope you liked our cards and will visit the two sites we used for our inspiration this week.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Two Challenges:  Mojo Monday #479 & Global Design Project #069

Is anyone tired of winter yet?  After a weekend of treacherous snow and ice here in the Pacific Northwest and even worse weather in many other parts of the country, we deserve a break wouldn’t you agree?  Well that is a bit of what we did today as we snuggled into our work spaces and got creative.   We all used the sketch from the Mojo Monday site and Robyn included the Global Design Project challenge into her card.  Here is the Mojo sketch we used:


I’m using that sweet snowman stamp from a few weeks ago that I just love.  He is so simple and irresistible that I just had to use him again.  He is from Whipper Snapper Designs and if you are into whimsical designs, you might like to checkout their site. Their stamps will make you smile.  My coloring was done mostly with pastel pencils and just a bit of watercoloring around the snowman’s face.  Coupled with a snowflake die I got just before Christmas and some fun dotted & checked papers here is my card:

Materials

Stamp:  Twigs-Whipper Snapper Designs

Die:  Layered Snowflake- Reverse Confetti

Paper:  Petite Prints-Doodlebug Designs (dots)

                Apples & Cheeriesy-Magnolia Ink

Robyn created her card with both the Mojo Monday and Global Design Project in mind. Here is the GDP sketch she used:

She was drawn back to her hedgehogs for her card today as they seem to be very lucky for her.  (More about that later.)  She added bright green for her ‘choice’ color in the GDP challenge and it makes a fun accent to the Silver & Delightful Dijon.

 

Materials:

Stamp:  Hedgehog-Great Impressions

Paper: 2015-2017 In Color DSP Stack-Stampin’ Up

Sentiment: Paper Pumpkin-SU

Embelishments:  Color Enamel Shapes-SU

Stitched Shapes:   size and manufacturer not provided
Karen’s card is the second of her Valentine series.  Her mix of color and pattern work well together in this design.


Materials:

Paper:  We Go Together-Pebbles (XOXO)

                Darling-Pebbles(stripe)

Devotion-Be.Loved (hearts)

Embossing Folder:  Sizzix

Washi Tape:  Devotion-Be.Loved (chevrons on envelope)

Now for a bit of good news:  Our gal Robyn was chosen as a Top Six Pick for a recent Can You Case It? challenge.   You can check out her cute card here.   She gets our ‘You Go Girl’ gold star. ⭐️  Well deserved congratulations Robyn!  Her fun hedgehog was so sweet in that card.  We will see if we have a repeat with this week’s hedgehog.
Thanks for stopping in for a quick peek and don’t forget to check the other great designs at each site.
