It seems like forever since the last Mojo Monday, but it’s only been two weeks. I’m glad that they are back and hope they all had a nice vacation! This weeks sketch challenge is a nice one. I love all of the pieces that are on the card. I have been trying to get into the Christmas spirit early this year so I can start making my Christmas cards now. This sketch was a perfect one for a holiday card. I used the CuttleBug Snow Embossing Folder for the background and the red rectangle. I also used the CuttleBug Dots Embossing Folder for the oval. The homemade “designer” paper was made using a Martha Stewart Holiday stamp set that I got from Michael’s in March for $.01! It has bout 14 stamps in it. I also used it for the Season’s Greetings. The Holly and Snowflakes are Mini EK Tools punches. I love all of the texture on the card. I think it gives it a nice warm feeling. Thanks for looking!
I really liked the layout for this weeks Mojo Monday. I decided that this would be the perfect layout for my very first Halloween card. I didn’t think I would like the square card but I do. I used some studio g Halloween stamps for the Skelly-Kids, spider web and lettering. Martha Stewart Crafts spider web edge punch made a great dividing line. The three black brads on the green rectangle complete the card. Hope you like it!
After I made my card for Mojo Monday I liked the color combo so much that I made another one. This one is a 4 Bar card. Perfect for a quick little note to let someone know that you are thinking about them. The stamps are i-cling by studio g, the butterfly is Martha Stewart Crafts and the Embossing Folder is CuttleBug.
Since we had the company of the obnoxious Irene (the hurricane!) I had some quality time at home which I don’t get very often. Thankfully we didn’t loose power at my house so I decided to try my hand at the Mojo Monday Challenge. The card has Alice in Wonderland type feel to it. I love the black, red, grey & white together. I used a Sizzix Embossing folder on the black part of the background and Martha Stewart Craft Edge Punches on the white and grey. The “ribbon” was made with a CuttleBug Embossing Folder. All of the punches used are EK Tools and the stamp is an ditto by studio g. I hope you like it. 🙂
