mojo monday/mojo450-god is good

 
For this weeks mojo monday sketch, I have created a traditional A2 card. I have also played along with the inspired by challenge. The stickles is sooo globby looking in photo, it does not look like that IRL...could not get a decent photo for nothing. Be sure to check out the mojo makers blogs.

words with meaning - the "earth" without "art" is just "eh."

adventure awaits


I need a graduation card and I adore the card Elizabeth created here and I knew I wanted to case it! The world stamp is from concord & 9th as is the congratulations sentiment. I wanted to use the school colors which are green and gold, so I added gold stars using lil inker stitched star dies. I adore the colors that Elizabeth used, but wanted to stick with the school colors. Some ink sponging and some eneamel dots finish my card.

words with meaning - I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list."

tgif challenge: favorite designer/elizabeth's card here



thank you


had to play along with a couple of amazing challenges, the global design and can you case it. It is a good long weekend and I have set aside time to create! I have used the adorable sentiment set from right at home called, simple sentiments. Some polka dotted embossing paste behind the main foal point, watercolored piece of paper, and the layered corrugated circle, star, and twine make up my card.

words with meaning - your life is your message to the world. makes sure it's inspiring.

I have used the stamp set from technique tuesday called dandelion, super fun set. I have added some stickles to the fly away seeds and then shimmery eneamel dots from doodlebug. I also created a couple of clear glue dots using glossy accents. The green cardstock is bazzil, minted bling heavy weight cardstock. I added the birthday sentiment that was cut out using mft mini tabs dies.

I have used the freshly made sketch for today's card. The flower is from prima and I luv it...it is multi layered and you can create a sweet flower with the layers. It is called bayou flower, I added a little stickles to the center; a super simple but sweet card. I cannot wait to see what you create with the colors this week!
