Mojo Monday 393 - Such a Joy

Hello there!

I have been having a great time in my craft room the past few days! I am trying to make some cards for my stash so that I have them when needed, instead of freaking out and making a card at the last minute. :)

I decided to sit down with this week's Mojo Monday sketch and see how the creative process moved me.

I used Heidi Swapp Hello Beautiful papers along with Verve's Kind Words and Each Day stamp sets.

SSS Monday Challenge: In The Middle

Hello there!

I had some time for creating today so I decided to play along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. The theme this week is In The Middle.

I chose to interpret that as a focal point in the middle of my card.


I masked a circle and sponged Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks and then covered that with the SSS Tiny Dots stencil and Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste. I then added the Darling Poppies die from Memory Box and the SSS Small Hello die cut from black cardstock. A butterfly cut from gold glitter cardstock and vellum using the Memory Box Effera and Rhone Butterfly Wings dies and a few Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Gold sequins finishes things off.

I am also linking this up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: April Showers/ Spring Flowers.

Creating Just for Fun!

Hello there!

I haven't had a chance to do much of anything creative lately, but I found myself today with some extra time, so I made a few cards.

I used the Mojo Monday Sketch for the first one -- it is for my sweet cousin who is still battling some serious health issues.

Hopefully this will bring a little sunshine to her day.


I made the background paper by spritzing some water on white cardstock, then adding some Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers Distress Spray, sponging on a bit of Vintage Photo and Wild Honey Distress Ink and then using the Tim Holtz 'Spritz and Flick' technique. I used the Trellis Die by Tim Holtz/Sizzix to cut the design from Kraft Resist paper and added a bit of Maya Road Rose Trim. The beautiful sentiment is from one of my all-time favorite stamp sets by Verve: Wonderfully Made.

The second card is for my niece who will be turning 13 in a few weeks! They are all growing up so fast! 

This card uses papers and stamps from the Simon Says Stamp April 2015 Card Kit. Such fun colors. Hopefully a 13 year old will like it. ?


Well that's all from me for now.

Hope you have a wonderful day... Thanks for stopping by!

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 196

Hello there!


Welcome to this week's edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

As usual, Jen has created another super fun sketch for us to play with this week.


For my card this week, I used two of my favorite stamp sets from Avery EllePetals and Stems (and coordinating dies) and So Happy. I stamped the images with Tim Holtz Distress Ink and then went over them with a water brush to give them a softer, watercolor look.

I also used the Chicken Wire Die-namics from MFTStitched Circles die from Simon Says Stamp, all three sizes of Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, a Studio Calico wood veneer butterfly, and a bit of crochet trim by May Arts.



Here is the list of the other DT members so you can see how they were inspired by this week's sketch:
I hope you are inspired to give this fabulous sketch a try. If you want to play along with us at The Deconstructed Sketch this week, the linky tool and details are over on Jen's blog!

I am also entering this in the AE I ♥U Challenge, which for this month, is Watercolor and in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is April Showers/Spring Flowers this week.

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 195

Hello there!

Welcome to this week's edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

I haven't been feeling too good this week, so I kind of took the quick and easy route on this card. 

The fun thing about this sketch is you can dress it up or down... so versatile! 

I used We R Memory Keepers Inked Rose collection this week along with the tiny sentiment stamp from Mama Elephant's Hello stamp set.

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 194

Hello there!

Welcome to this week's edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

As usual, Jen has created another spectacular sketch for us to play with this week.

I have been waaaaaaiting for the Heidi Swapp Memory Planners and accessories to become available at my LSS. They finally arrived yesterday! Hooray! 

I love the 6x8 paper pads that coordinate with the planners. I used some of those papers for my card today. I just adore the beautiful patterns and colors. I found a Heidi Swapp wood veneer word from a Project Life kit that I bought awhile back, and sprayed it with the HS Gold Color Shine and added a few white paper roses from Kaiser Craft.
