Mojo Monday, Baby!

 Well today is Monday so it’s time to get your Mojo on with the stampers over at Mojo Monday.  Here is the sketch that was provided and below that you’ll see my take on it.




I needed to make a baby card and this layout provided just the right basis for that.  I used the image from Embellished Events and the sentiment from Itty Bitty Banners.  The coordinating Bitty Banners Framelits  and a quick pass thru the Big Shot machine made easy work of cutting out the banner in the same shape as the stamped image.  The Big Shot and my Circles #2 die made easy work of cutting out all the circles, too and as well as adding the Polka Dots embossing to the solid color circle.   My color combination of Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple came from the luscious Print Poetry Designer Series paper stack available in the Spring Catalog.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my entry for today’s challenge.  Now, its’ time for YOU to get your mojo on.  Use this sketch for your project.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this project – if you really like it, feel free to pin it to your Pinterest board or share it with a friend thru Facebook.  Happy Stampin’!

See you soon!  – Nancy

Mojo Monday 267

This week we had a great sketch to work with from the designers at Mojo Monday.  Here’s the sketch…

and here’s my take on it….

Mojo Monday 267My father-in-law is very ill and currently in the ICU.  I thought he needed something to cheer him up, and since my brand new “So Sorry” stamp set was just waiting to be used, it was a match made in heaven!  I love the grey herringbone pattern in the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper # 126906.  Nothing halloween-y about this pattern; it’s all masculine.  Just perfect for the base for a get-well card for a man.  I love the Basic Gray and Summer Starfruit color combination so it’s no surprise that this was the only color combination I even considered.  The little piece of ribbon is tied only in a knot, no bow here!   The flag in a striped pattern of Summer Starfruit sets off the grey, adding some cheerfulness without being girly.

I think the finished product is a winner!  Nice and cheery but still masculine.  And Dad seemed to cheer up a bit when I gave it to him so, mission accomplished.
