Yeah! Thursday! One more day to go until… FRIDAY! It snowed here yesterday morning but thankfully it didn’t amount to anything. We are supposed to get another storm on Sunday night, fingers crossed that it’s not snow and rain instead! I had a nice day yesterday. The best part was doing my Stampin’ Up! Webinar last night. It was the same one that I did at Leadership, Pinteresting. Thank you to all of you that joined in and if you missed it it will we posted sometime next week on the Demonstrator site. I also want to thank Katie Adams and Brian Pilling for their assistance last night. You guys are awesome! 🙂
Today’s post is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I love it when they mix it up and this week is one of those weeks that they did just that. Julee Tilman has given us this tall skinny sketch…
This was one of those times that I knew exactly what I was going to do when I saw the sketch! My card starts off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock and the background consists of four layers. The top one is just a simple piece of Sahara Sand. The bottom three are Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party and Pistachio Pudding. I used my Fringe Scissors on each piece and overlapped them. My tag is created with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and some Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper backed with a piece of Whisper White to make it a little more sturdy. I tied a piece of twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack throughout the top of the tag and mounted it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The bird is from the Natures’s Hello Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Pool Party and cut out with the Backyard Basics Framelits. Behind him is a piece of Pistachio Pudding that I stamped with one of the stamps form this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit in Pistachio Pudding and punched out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. Behind that is a piece of Summer Starfruit that is punched out with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. I adhered it to the tag and done! I really do like the stamps in the Nature’s Hello Stamp Set, they are neat because they have the greeting inside the image. Hopefully the Fringe Scissors with be back in stock soon, they are so much fun! Thank you very much for stopping by to see my Mojo Monday card for this week’s sketch challenge. I hope that you all have a terrific Thursday and I’ll see you back here tomorrow for my Fab Friday Design Team card. I did something a little different and you’ll have to let me know what you think! 🙂
