Well it was definitely a Monday yesterday. Work was crazy but things always get better when I get home and craft for a bit. I got my Photopolymer Stamps yesterday but I didn’t get a chance to play with them yet, maybe tonight. I also got the supplies to start working on the Christening invitations for my friend Kim! I can’t wait to get started on those! How was your Monday? Hopefully it wasn’t too bad.
Tuesday means it’s Mojo time. For this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge we have a sweet sketch from Julee Tilman…
I definitely had an idea what I was going to use as soon as I saw this one. The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock and on top of that for the background, a plain piece of Cherry Cobbler. I used the Woodgrain Textures Impressions Embossing Folder on a piece of Daffodil Delight. I have a little tip for you, some people have said that the Woodgrain Folder embosses too deeply. I just run it through my Big Shot with no tabs and I love the way it comes it. Underneath that is a piece of Calypso Coral that I punched the bottom edge of with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. I adhered a piece of World Spectacular Designer Series Paper to the front. Before I adhered the whole piece to the card I put some Island Indigo 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon from top to bottom down the left side. The main stamped image is from the Blue Ribbon Stamp Set. I stamped the placing ribbon in Island Indigo and cut it out with my Paper Snips. The greeting is punched out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. They are adhered to each other and the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The teeny flags on the left are form the Itty Bitties Stamp Set and are stamped in Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Island Indigo. I punched them out with the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and adhered them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final piece are two tickets from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set stamped in Calypso Coral and punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch. A small staple holds them to the ribbon. What a bright and colorful masculine birthday this will make. I hope that you all enjoyed my Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card for this week’s post. Thank you so very much for taking some time out of your busy day to spend with me. Have a great day!
