Mojo 270

Hello peeps! How are we all doing today? I’m pretty good, just beginning to muddle through the week. I have some fun news to share with you today. Have you seen the gorgeous ornament on the front of the Holiday Catalog… of course you have! Well, I love it but it takes more than a few runs through the Big Shot to make the pieces to put it together. So here is the fun news part. Someone that is very intelligent at the Stampin’ Up! home office has decided to sell the ornament as a kit! That’s right! You can purchase the kit with enough supplies to make 10, yes 10 of those beautiful ornaments! Here are the specifics:


Create 10 heirloom ornaments–or stunning tags to attach to a special gift.

The Ornamental Elegance Kit (132832) is $14.95 and includes:

  • Die-Cut Cardstock Elements
  • Cherry Cobbler 3-1/2″ Scalloped Tulle Ribbon
  • Natural Linen Thread
  • Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons
  • Large Pearl Basic Jewels

Now that is a great idea! Click here to go and order one or a few and get them in plenty of time to make for the holidays!

Told you that was some fun news! Now for today’s post which is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This week have a nice simple sketch from Carole Burrage…


I was thinking of replacing the hearts with some ornaments but I decided to keep them. The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock and to that I have added a piece from the Festival of Prints Designer Paper Stack. I used the Large Scallop Edgelit to cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler and adhered a piece of Crumb Cake to it. Some Lucky Limeade 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon is adhered around the back with Sticky Strip across the piece of Cherry Cobbler. The greeting is form the More Merry Messages Stamp Set and is stamped in Versa-Mark and heat embossed with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce the edges and adhered it to a piece of Lucky Limeade before adhering it to the card. The two larger hearts are stamped in Lucky Limeade and Cherry Cobbler with stamps from the Joyous Celebrations Stamp Set. I used the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies to cut them out. The smaller heart image is from the Love & Laughter Stamp Set and is stamped in Crumb Cake and punched out with the Small Heart Punch. They are all adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I like the hearts on the Christmas card a lot more than I thought I would and I’m a big fan of the DSP. I hope that you liked my card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. Thank for coming and taking a look and I hope that you have a great day!
