There is really nothing better than having to clean 5 inches of snow off of your car first thing in the morning before heading off to work, would’t you agree?! LOL! It was a Monday! My day wasn’t bad at all, had lunch with my friend Robin. We went to a little neighborhood deli in Syosset called Dugan Sandwich Shop and I had an Italian hero that was quite tasty! After work I had dinner and then came home and unpacked my little Stampin’ Up! order. I also got my MISTI Stamp Tool. I can’t wait to play with that! Made my card for today and then ran to Target to pick up some things that I have been meaning to get for about a week! I need a few more hours in the day please so I can get it all done!
Before we get to today’s card here are the Stampin’ Up! weekly deals…
The card that I made last night is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…
I really do always love the Mojo sketches! My card base for today is a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and I covered the front of with a piece of Mossy Meadow. The background is a piece of Smoky Slate. I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles to cut out a piece of So Saffron. On the bottom of that is a piece of Mossy Meadow that I heat embossed the greeting from the Lovely Amazing You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I rounded the bottom corners with the Project Life Corner Rounder and then adhered it to the bottom of the rectangle that is then adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For my circle I used a piece of the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack that was just added to Sale-A-Bration. I cut it and a piece of Mossy Meadow out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles. They are adhered together with Multi-Purpose Glue and then adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My flower and butterfly are from the Nature’s Perfection Stamp Set, also just added to Sale-A-Bration, and are heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum. I used my Paper Snips to cut out the flower and the Elegant Butterfly Punch to punch out the butterfly. Some tiny pieces of Clear Foam Tape adhere them to the circle. A thin bead of Ranger Black Liquid Pearls makes the body for the butterfly and a few Simon Says Stamp Sparkle and Shine Sequins finish off the card. I love the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum and the new stamp sets that were added to Sale-A-Bration! Remember that you can get one of them for FREE with every $50 you spend now thought the end of March! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Your visits are always appreciated and I hope that you enjoy your Tuesday!
