Mojo 255

Good Morning! I made this card to encourage a friend that needs a little support. I really like this simple sketch for a simple message. 

I used: - Verve stamp sets - 'Swan Song' and 'Starstruck'
           - SU Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake CS
           - SU Crumb Cake and Early Espresso pads
           - DSP is retired SU 'Elegant Soiree'
           - Copic E43
           - SU Texture Plate 'Elegant Lines'
           - SU Red Riding Hood pleaded ribbon
           - Nestibilities Circle & Scalloped Circles dies
           - random ivory pearls from my bling stash.
First, I sponged the Very Vanilla cs with Crumb Cake ink. Next. I embossed the Vanilla with 'Elegant Lines' and used it with the depressed side up. I stamped the swan from Verve's "Swan Song' set with SU Early Espresso; highlighted the image with Copic E43, added an ivory pearl for the head and layered the swan in 5 layers with dimensional onto Vanilla and Crumb Cake cut with my dies. I used the sentiment from Verve's 'Starstruck' and stamped it with Early Espresso also.  I added a little SU Red Riding Hood pleaded ribbon for a touch of colour. I layered it all up with dimensionals (12 layers total!! - a new record - LOL) and added a couple more pearls. Ta-da!!!!

Thanks for looking and comments are greatly appreciated.

Mojo 254

Hey! I thought I could do something with Mojo 254.  I haven't been feeling great but I really wanted to enjoy making a card with this sketch. I love this SU DSP 'Springtime Vintage' and I love the digital stamp from A Day for Daisies. She is so lovely! I cut and enlarged one of the little bluebirds for an accent. I used my beloved Copics, SU Very Vanilla ; Baja Breeze and Always Artichoke CS. Ribbon and buttons are Baja Breeze as well. I cut out the pretty girl and the bluebird and popped them with dimensionals. The sentiment is from SU 'Word Play' stamp set.
That's all for now. Maybe I'll be up for a new Mojo challenge next week.

Mojo227 - v 2.0

I decided I'd like to make a Valentine with the Mojo 227 sketch.  The cross stitched chocolate is actually a fridge magnet my friend can pop off and keep.  I don't remember where I got the cross stitch pattern for the chocolate but if you would like a copy, send me an email & I'll send it to you.

I used: SU Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Kraft, Basic Black & Real Red cs; SU Early Espresso ribbon & Cherry Chocolate Drop Dew Drops; SU Whisper White ink; Heart Blocks Cuttlebug folder; Nestabilities Labels Eight; initial 'X' & 'O' -  Sentiment printed with pc using Chocolate Box font with dark brown.

OK, I saw the sketch for Mojo227 and it said one thing to me - BOOKMARKS!  So, if you're like me and tired of being ribbed about your 'guilty-pleasure' reading materials, here's a nifty little solution.  I used Mojo227 and instead of a card, I made a super cute book cover with a pocket for 2 bookmarks & a sweet ribbon to hold it all together.  Looks like I'm all set for a relaxed poolside afternoon with a great (incognito) bodice-ripper this summer!

I used some old SU DSP - Island Oasis; Old Olive Ribbon; Old Olive & Tempting Turquoise CS & a random flower that works.  I wrapped the DSP all the way around the book & folded the extra under the cover.
