Mojo 355 & Pals Paper Arts 212

Yesterday was definitely a long day but not bad at all. The weather was nice, a little humid compared to what I’m used to in Salt Lake City, but nice. It wasn’t a bad day to be outside and later on in the evening there was a nice breeze. The golf event ended earlier that I thought, 9:00PM, so that was good. I came home and Heather stopped by for a bit and then I made my two cards for today. I was up much later than I had planned to be, but that is usually the case with me! Someone said that maybe I was still on Utah time and then someone else mentioned that maybe I was on Sydney time. Come to think of it after the flights on the way out last week I felt like I should have been in Australia! LOL! Yes, today I have two cards for you again, I wanted to get my Pals Paper Arts card in before the deadline! Plus, I always feel better after a little crafty time!

Today’s post contains my cards for both Mojo Monday and Pals Paper Arts, We’ll take card of the Mojo Monday card first which is based on this sketch…


The card contains some more sneak peeks from the new Holiday Catalog! I know it’s a bit early to be thinking of the fall and Christmas but I love to play with some new goodies! To begin my card I used a base of Soft Suede Card Stock. My background is made up of a piece of Sahara Sand, I cut the right side with the Finishing Touches Edgelits,  then I embossed it with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and tucked a piece of Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper* underneath it on the right. The leaves and the greeting are from the For All Things Stamp Set* and are stamped in Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry for the leaves and Blackberry Bliss for the greeting. I cut it out with the Circles Collection Framelits and backed it with a piece of Blackberry Bliss cut out with the Starburst Framelits. The two flags are Mossy Meadow and Crushed Curry and a strip of adhesive cork takes the place of a piece of ribbon. The three acorns are also from the For All Things Stamp Set*. I stamped them in Soft Suede and cut them out with my Paper Snips. A few Stampin’ Dimensional pieces hold them in place. Like I said, I know it’s early but the stamps and DSP are just too much fun!

My second card for today is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…

PPA 212

A nice simple sketch which is handy when you are making a card at midnight! Crumb Cake Card Stock is the base for the card and the background is a piece of Typeset Designer Series Paper backed by a piece of Cherry Cobbler. A strip of Brushed Gold Card Stock is punched with the Hearts Border Punch and backed with a piece of Cherry Cobbler and adhered across the top. The images and greeting are from the Groovy Love Stamp Set and are stamped in Cherry Cobbler, then punched out with the Sweetheart Punch and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Definitely a nice simple card but fun none the less! I hope that you enjoyed my late night cards for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch and Pals Paper Arts sketch challenges. I always love spending a little time with you, thank you for stopping by and have a great Tuesday! 🙂
