mojo Monday 149

Hi there! It has been a couple weeks since I have been able to finish my mojo samples. Both times I had the cards started but something unexpectedly came up and I could not finish it in time. After a very late night, I was able to complete this week's sketch. Below is the sketch and my sample.

This cute party hat Cocoa image from Sweet N Sassy stamps is currently available as a digital image but will be released in August as a clear stamp set. Cocoa was colored with copics and the top of the hat was accented with a clear spica glitter pen. I sponged around ink the image while it was still in the die.

Clean and Simple Poppies

Hi everyone! How is your summer going? My girls and I have been busy but enjoying spending time at the pool and at soccer. I won't have as much time for crafting most likely until school starts so I have a fairly simple card to show you today.

I stamped my flowers from the Poppies and Greetings set onto Paper Temptress blanc sparkle. I colored them with copics, added stickles to the centers, and sponged blue ink around the image. I matted my poppies with white and attached to my card base. To accent my pretty poppies I scored a double frame on the base. I finished off by tying a knot at the with satin edged organdy ribbon.

mojo Monday 146- contest week

It's mojo Monday contest week. Up to 7 Verve stamp sets will be given away to the participants whose entries are judged to be the most mojo-licious. Below are the sample and my sketch for this week

My card today features a brand new stamp set that was released by Sweet N Sassy stamps today. It is called Serene Silhouettes and I absolutely LOVE it!!! It has 4 main silhouette images and quite a few birds and butterfly accessory stamps. I stamped one of the images with dark chocolate ink onto very vanilla cardstock and sponged moss ink around it while it was still in the nestabilities die. I accented the scallops with white pearls and the corners with brown pearls.
