Yup, it’s true. I have not posted my last Mojo cards for let’s just say a little while. I am not going to give any excuses, but I do want to share with all of you the cards that we have done recently.
So, some of the cards you will see here have been CASE by some really creative women, Janice Rosenthal-Rock (Heard you were sick), Patty Bennett (Mother’s Day), Jill Noland (Rocker B-day) and even one from the SU mini catalog (Wonderful You). With so much talent out there to inspire me, it is easy being a SU demonstrator. You, too, can have this much fun, but I digress.
Okay, back to the cards. First off is the Wonderful You. As I mentioned above, this sample was in the SU mini catalog. Did you miss it? Are you going back to find it in your old copy? The sample was introducing the Simply Scored tool with the diagonal plate. Do you see the score lines going through the grass? I have really come to appreciate this scorer. Yes, I have tried and had other brands (even one from the princess of crafting) and SU did this right. The butterfly uses the Blossom Flower Punch and Mixed Bunch stamp set. After you punch out the flower, you cut two of the petals off and presto you have a fancy butterfly. I layered it with Melon Mambo underneath and then slightly curled the wings on top. The sentiment set used was the Loving Thoughts stamp set. I like this card clean and simple.
Rocker Birthday, I knew I wanted to purchase and use this Grunge Rock stamp set. I just didn’t know that it was going to be retired the month after I purchased it! Oh well, I still like the set and plan on keeping it. This card was done before with a masculine color scheme. I was inspired to be a little more Rocker Chick. So, I went with the purples.
Sick as a Dog. Using another now retired stamp set, Wellness Wishes, and CASE card, I combined Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, DSP Autumn Vine and the Chocolate Chip Striped ribbon. Okay, the ribbon is going to be one of my most missed accessory items in the new catalog. We colored in the sick puppy with SU watercolor pencils and then used a blender pen to smooth out the color.
Bling ~ Joy! Using Melon Mambo, Wisteria Wonder, Pink Pirouette card stocks, and a ton of punches, this card appeals to the girlie girl in all of us. The two versions show the basic pearls or the bling of rhinestones. Which one makes you joyful?
Happy Mother’s and Father’s Day! The Mother’s Day card is a double pocket card that I saw from Patty Bennett and is great for giving a bookmarker and then tucking in a gift card in the inside pocket.
The Father’s Day card uses the Packed for Dad for the block image and Best Dad Ever stamp sets for the additional tie on the front. I also used the Stripes embossing folder. This folder was introduced in the Occasions Mini Catalog and now has found its place in the new 2012-2013 catalog.
