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.

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!

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.?!?


                         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.  


                         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!

Happy Mail

Here is a quick card I made yesterday for this week’s Cas(e) This Sketch #207.  I used Right At Home’s Happy Mail Year 2 stamp set and some printed paper from Reverse Confetti’s True Love collection.  Then added a fun border from Lil’ Inkers called Silly Stitched Borders.


That’s it, short and sweet.  See the fun sketch to follow below, and check out more ideas at the Case This Sketch site and consider playing along. I’ll be there looking for you!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come again soon.
