Mojo For You Throwdown


Hi All! 

This week I had to make a card for someone that was leaving, I didn't have any 'sorry you're leaving' sentiments so I was a bit stuck what to do. I then looked at the sentiments I had and just went with a simple 'For you' & 'God Bless You'. This is what I came up with...



To choose the colours I used this weeks Colour Throwdown challenge:


I also used a sketch from this weeks Mojo Mondays blog:


So I made this card by getting some Coastal Cabana cardstock and embossing it with the honeycomb EF, which I only did on 3/4's of the card, I also distressed it. I then used some Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock to use for main image, I then stamped on some Naturals White c/s using Flowering Flourishes in Rich Razzleberry & Strawberry Slush. I then got some dsp that had a Strawberry Slush pattern and made that my ribbon. I then cut some Coastal Cabana c/s and stamped in Rich Razzleberry with the Morning Meadow stamp set. I then stamped some of the pansy flowers in Crisp Cantaloupe & Strawberry Slush onto some more Naturals White c/s, I had to then cut them out as I haven't got the pansy punch yet. To finish off I stamped my sentiments and then punch a mosaic piece out in Crisp Cantaloupe to sit behind my For You sentiment. 

Hope you enjoy what I have done and pop by soon for another creative post.

The recipe is as follows:

Stamps: Chalk Talk, Summer silohuettes and Oh hello

Mosaic Madness




So I started playing around with Mosaic Madness when I received and it was my boyfriend's brother's 30th so I started playing with some of the new colours as well as new card. As you can see I did a straight forward card no fancy ribbon or flowers. Don't think a man would've liked that. Here it is...



I used a square card base and positioned my Baked Brown Sugar cardstock on top. I then stamped some mosaic's and punched them out with co-ordinating punch. I used Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay &  Raspberry Ripple. I had previously stamped 30 and was trying to find a punch to co-ordinate, I then thought would the mosaic punch work after trying other options and it did! I used one of the border stamps so that the 30 didn't look bare against the background. I then stamped happy birthday and punched with the word window punch and used the modern window punch in some quatrefancy dsp to  enhance the greeting and stuck on the opposite corner to the 30. 

I have to say it took me a while to lay all the mosaics in the right place before I was happy with it all. I stuck some of them down with glue and some with dimensionals just to lift it off the card. Giving it that added extra. 

Here is the recipe:

Stamps: Mosaic Madness, Teeny Tiny Sentiments & Patterned Party
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry & Raspberry Ripple
Tools: Mosaic Punch, Word Window & Modern label punch

Thanks for stopping by...
