mojo 174



I finally got all the Christmas stuff put away so I can now get back into my room. I decided to jump into Julee's Mojo Monday challenge. I had to get busy making some Valentine's cards, so I chose Verve's Heart to Heart stamps for my card. It's an oldie but a goodie. I stamped the hearts and cut them out. I mounted the smaller heart in the middle with some foam tape for dimension. I also matted it with some pink cardstock to make it pop. For the patterned paper, I used Basic Grey's Sugared paper pad. I don't think I had used it before now. Typical. I tied a piece of matching ribbon around and done.
Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: patterned hearts (Verve Visual), small hearts (Hampton Art), Valentine (Papertrey Ink)

Nothing like waiting until the last minute to complete a sketch. When I saw Jen Del Muro's card at my local scrapbook store, I had to have this stamp set by The Cat's Pajamas. Her card totally inspired mine for this week's Mojo Monday challenge.

I stamped Dracula on some white cardstock and colored him with Copics. I mounted that on a piece of kraft cardstock that I had stamped using the VersaMark pad. I mounted everything on a piece of patterned paper I got out of my Halloween pile and I'm digging the end result.







This card I did I couple of week's ago for Mojo Monday 157. I'm not sure why I never uploaded it. I bought this cute little stamp set by My Mind's Eye at one of the local scrapbook stores. Isn't that little witch adorable? I absolutely love Halloween!

Well, with the kids finally back in school, I may be able to get some cards done. This week's Mojo Monday sketch was challenging for me. I wasn't totally psyched about it, but I managed to churn something out. I bought these Spellbinders Shapeabilities pendants and they've just been sitting on my desk. I was looking at them and realized that one of them was the perfect size for the squares in the sketch. I knew I wanted to do a Halloween card, but finding the right stamps was the challenging part. I needed small stamps to layer on top and these were the only ones I could find. I may have to go shopping!



I basically just stamped the images on white cardstock and colored them with my Copics and cut those suckers out. I used one of the small Nestabilities circles under the images and foam tape for a little lift. Mounted everything on this green patterned paper and done!

Thanks for stopping by!

Do you have an image in your head of how you want your card to turn out, but 9 times out of 10 it doesn't look anything like you had imagined? Or is it just me? Well, this is number 10 of 10. It actually looks like I had imagined. When I saw this week's Mojo Monday sketch, I knew exactly what stamps, paper and dies I wanted to use. I don't know about you, but that like never happens to me.




The main image is from the Up, Up and Away set from Verve and I colored it with Copics. All the patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Oliver paper pad. For the clouds and the eyelet border, I used Papertrey Ink's dies. I thought they were a perfect fit for the card!

Thanks for stopping by!

I can't remember the last time I did one of Julee's Mojo Monday sketches. I thought I would pull out some older Verve stamps too. For the patterned paper, I used a combination of October Afternoon's Fly a Kite and SEI's Happy Day that my mom got me for my birthday. I stamped the stars and colored them with my Copics. I oh so carefully cut them out and mounted them with foam tape on the white squares. I tried to match the colors of the Copics with the paper the best I could. (Note to self...need to buy more Copics!)

Sorry for the bad lighting. It's almost dark here and I couldn't take it in my usual spot.
Just a quick post because I'm almost at the deadline for entering this bad boy! Thanks for stopping by!


Happy Birthday:
Stamps: stars (Verve Visual), sentiment (PrintWorks)
Paper: October Afternoon, SEI, Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Nestabilities, Copic markers, ribbon
