Another Mojo Monday

I loved this week's Mojo Monday sketch. It is very simplistic but allows enough design elements so you can make that perfect card :)

I am finding a new love for the Create a Cupcake stamp set. It's so versatile - meaning, you can use this set for a child's birthday or an adult's! Here's my rendition from this week's sketch:

Stamping with Rach Tips:

  • Use dimensionals on the back of the cupcake top to make it pop off the card
  • To give it a delicate touch, I used the Eyelet  Border Punch (so pretty!)
  • Use Sticky Strip on the back of the Argyle Textured Impressions embossing folder to ensure it in fact sticks to the card base. I find with embossed card stock, regular adhesive doesn't do the trick

Must-have's to create this card:
Stamp Set: Create a Cupcake (Clear-Mount 121982)

Paper:  Very Vanilla (101650), Certainly Celery (105125), Pretty in Pink (100459), Subtles Designer Series Paper (117152), Early Espresso (119686)

Ink:  Pretty in Pink (126955), Early Espresso (126974)

Tools: Dimensionals (104430), Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (127750), Eyelet Border Punch (retired but an excellent substitute is the Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402), 1 3/4" Circle Punch (119850), 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch (118874)

Easy peasy, right? What do you think? Leave me a comment!

Mojo Monday Time!

Chock-Full of Cheer

This week's Mojo Monday sketch was so cute I had to use the new stamp set "Chock Full of Cheer" from the new catalogue. Aren't these mittens the cutest?

Stamping with Rach Tips:

  • I used the In Colour NEW! Gumball Green card stock.
  • Cut out the mittens and use dimensionals to have them pop off the page.
  • To add a gentle touch, I used Very Vanilla Seam Binding ribbon for the bow.
  • Sponge the edges of the mittens' frame so it blends nicely with the base layer.

Must-have's to create this card:
Stamp Set: Chock-Full of Cheer (Wood-Mount 126715, Clear-Mount 126717)

Paper:  Gumball Green (126840, Cherry Cobbler (119685), Be of Good Cheer DSP (126896), Very Vanilla (101650)

Ink:  Cherry Cobbler (126966)

Tools: Sponge (101610), Dimensionals (104430)

It's a VERY easy card to put together. Give it a try and let me know what you think. You know I love comments :)

It's Mojo Monday Time!

I really liked the sketch this week (Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO244) and decided to create a card in between feedings, changing diapers, cleaning the house, playing "tickle" with the kids... :) I really like how the green pops right off the card and I, of course, had to add some bling :)

Would love to hear what you think - please leave me a comment!

Stamping with Rach Tips:

  • I used the new NEW! Raspberry Ripple card stock (doesn't that sound delicious!!) from the new In Colours. Love it!
  • Usually I am a matchy-matchy type girl - everything needs to match. But this time I used Old Olive card stock with Lucky Limeade ribbon. A nice compliment I thought.
  • To add some sparkle, I incorporated some jewels. What girl doesn't like bling??
