Mojo Monday

Hello All! I'm happy to be able to share with you today! I've really missed my stampin' time and have had a great day today-creating! I decided that since my supplies are very limited still, I wanted to start with a sketch...so I thought the Mojo Monday sketch was a good place to start! I know the lighting is a bit off...but we're having really rainy/gray, typical Seattle spring weather and our appartment has TERRIBLE lighting! So, you'll have to bear with me for a few more weeks! I'll do my best!
I started with a WW card. I used my scallop edge punch on the bottom of the card base and then used it again on my Kiwi polka dot paper. This delicous paper is part of the Bella dsp pack from SU. I tied a regal rose ribbon round teh belly of the card...yes, I love that 5/8" ribbon! It is so perfect!

I stamped the tree in with Kiwi Kiss ink, onto WW ink. I then punched out three little blossoms with my Trio Blossom punch. I used a little regal rose paper for the blossoms. Then I used my rose red brads to add a fun little center to the blooms. I mounted my tree on some regal rose c/s and then again on kiwi kiss cardstock.

I mounted my tree on a square of rose red textured cardstock--using dimensionals to attach it. My little sentiment is from the level 1 hostess set, sweet little sentiments. jI stamped it with kiwi ink and then used my word window punch to punch it out.

I think this is a fun sketch that I can go back to over and over. I'm hoping that I'll get to share more this week...still trying to get ourselves used to being in the states...it's great. But my heart is still sad about leaving Germany...but time does help that doesn't it!?

Thanks for stopping by friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Jen, your card is wonderful! I'm glad you have some supplies and are able to stamp!!!
Sorry you are missing your friends, it's always hard to be so far away.

Hi Jen- i followed your link form paperclipping to your blog. Love your card. So you are a SU consultant??? Can you tell me about the different inks SU has. I've heard one is "moister", but I had this stamp pad that was very moist and all i did was smear everything and make a mess (it was not a SU pad).I mostly use the cat eye stamps right now. I love the colors SU has and want to get some but I have hesitated because I really am not sure which kind is best for me. Please share your knowledge!

How sweet! So springy! Love the darling green and white polka dots for the background!

Love this card. Colours are gorgeous. Please advise, is your ribbon wrapped around the card or have you cut it so it's just in the front of the card? You can email me your response when you have time, just visit my blog. Take care, Sharon
