Mojo Monday #199


Hello friends!  I arrived in Indiana last night--thanks for all of your well wishes for safe travels!  I tried to get a little crafty this afternoon, but it was definitely hard to get into the groove in a different space with limited supplies.  Still, I wanted to play along with this week's Mojo Monday sketch:


Once again,  I pulled out Verve's Bloom & Grow.  I stamped the large circle of Rustic Cream cardstock with some of the leaves and a sentiment from the set, then added three small flowers.  Another flower was stamped and cut out by hand, then matted with a Raspberry Fizz scalloped circle.

I tried several different ribbon treatments, but nothing was working so I stuck with a simple strip of chocolate satin ribbon wrapped around the card front.  A die cut, Victorian Lace border balances the pink at the top of the card.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate, Spring Moss, Raspberry Fizz, Rustic Cream)
Stamps:  Verve (Bloom & Grow)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Melon Mambo, Regal Rose), Clearsnap (Lettuce), Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate)
Tools:  Spellbinders (circle & scallop circle dies), Papertrey Ink (Woodgrain impression plate, Victorian Lace border die), We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
Accessories:  Michaels (ribbon)

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you've had a wonderful weekend!

Tell me about it! When I got home from vacation last Thursday the first thing I did was go down to my studio space and say hi to all my supplies. Ha! Another beautiful card, though. I think you could be on the moon and you could still come up with something stunning.

Limited supplies and you come up with this?!?! Holy cow girl, may your creativity rub off on your followers!!! I've been thinking about packing up some stamps and cardstock to take with me during our move LOL! Well, I already have to take any inks/paints/markers (moving company won't move them), so what's a little cardstock, stamps, scor pal, adhesive and paper trimmer right? :D HAVE FUN!!!!
